… a little bit of this, that and a lot more

Blonde Moment(s)

Hallo (I will NOT say from a cold and mizzie Germany. Refuse to ;)) From a Vibey Munich


I had a really dof moment today. Normally I do not share my dof moments because I have a rep(utation) to uphold. And pride. Appearances are mos everything, neh


I got the train (underground?) from office to the Hotel yesterday without hassles. Had the map, and the connections on hand. Same goes for the return trip today.


So before i leave the hotel, I check:

1. Map – ja

2. Ticket – ja

3. Connections – jawohl

4. Name of final stop – of course


Get the first connection. All good. Get off for 2nd connection and cross over to the waiting train. BIG mistake. The train nr was right but the direction was …yip, WRONG (at this point warning bells are going off, but I resolutely ignore them due to tatiegeit, i.e. slowness)


Conversation with self


OD: you sure this is the right one?

D: Yes I’m sure

OD: But didn’t we get off on the other side (track x) yesterday, so we need to go back there?!

D: No I’m sure this is the right one. See, the name is right

OD: But we got off, then took the escalators up, then down to the other side

D: Ja, but the train number is right, man!!!!


Note: D = me, OD = voice of reason


So myself and OD board Nr 2 direction —> WRONG WAY!!!


And immediately realised it was indeedie NOT the right one. Can you imagine what OD had to say


OD: See, I told you (you mos know that voice)

D: Just shurrup. We’re here, enjoy the ride

OD: Grrrr


I felt VERY foolish. And stupid. DOF. I sommer get the giggles. And to crown it all, I nogals continue past FIVE other tops before actually realising I should get off, or else I will REALLY get lost. At this point OD was silent.


I made it here. A bit late and frazzled (prolly due to the weather).


It will NEVER happen again. (tightly crossing fingers)

    Ag shame man! Sounds like something I would have done…glad to see you blogging more at least 🙂

  4. Hi Kat! I just stumbled over your blog. (Ich spreche deutsch!) What exactly are you doing in München? And: taking the train in the wrong direction is surely a common mistake in a new city. But how do you go on with buying tickets? That’s a science in itself, even for the Germans!
