Question of the day.

Staying in the vacation territory, would you prefer a camper or a hotel?

My answer:

Most definitely camper. Actually, I can’t remember if I’ve told you about it earlier or not, but my Dad finally bought one earlier this year. It’s always been his dream to have a camper and travel round the world, or at least the country, in it. But for a long time he couldn’t decide on buying any, or found other excuses not to do so, so that finally at some point we all started thinking that he’s just content keeping it in the dream world. Nothing wrong with that. I wouldn’t condemn him for that since he’s a driver by profession so, well, if I spent all my work time in the car, I don’t think I’d like to spend all the free time in another one, and then my retirement years as well. But he did decide to buy one in the end, that was both cheap enough that he didn’t feel like he was wasting money on it, and had the most important things he wanted it to have. We haven’t yet travelled in it anywhere, only Olek and Sofi had for a few days, because Olek wanted to do training in paragliding, and Sofi went along, she convinced him to take her because she said she’d make him food and stuff like that. 😀 And they had a lot of fun, even though Sofi spent most of the time alone which is very contrary to her nature. But she had a forest in quite close proximity, where she was allowed to go, and made friends witha squirrel, and of course she had Internet and service so she wasn’t cut off from the world, and had a good view on the airport.

Anyways, yeah, I’m a creature of habit and I like things to be my way, which I think is easier to do in a camper, which you can make to be a mini version of your house and basically customise more, than in a hotel. And you don’t have to deal with stranger people, which is a big upside when you’re socially anxious or even just highly introverted. I don’t think we’d ever take Misha in the camper with us because this woould be a huge stress for him, but it’s already a lot more doable from a practical point of view than taking him to a hotel. I think this homey aspect is, after all, one of the main reasons why we all have always liked the idea. Although Sofi does love hotels too and is always excited to sleep in them. I mean, it’s to the extend that she’ll go to the most boring trip just for the sake of sleeping in a hotel. 😀 When I was taking my finals three years ago (oh my, by the way, today’s exactly the day when I was taking my Polish final, but now it’s my cousin who is doing this at the moment) it wasn’t at the school where I was actually going to, my Mum got an idea that I could pass them in the nearest blind school (some two hours’ drive from here, not the one I used to go to as a kid), and it sounded good to me so I went along with it and it turned out to be possible. In the end it also turned out to be a really bad decision, but in any case, we had to stay there for three days, and my Dad was so nice that he drove us which made it doable for us to sleep elsewhere than the school (I really hated the idea and wanted to avoid it at all costs). So we found a hotel in close proximity to the school, and when Sofi learned that we’re going to stay in a hotel, she was all fizzing with excitement and wanted to go to. And there was no way to talk her out of this. Mum had to notify Sofi’s school that she’ll be absent for three days, and we had to take Sofi. And, unlike me, she has really good memories from that, just because of sleeping in a hotel. Which wasn’t even a very fancy hotel at all. Now she often says how she’d like to go back to that hotel and sleep there again, and how this is so awful that I won’t redo my failed math exam, because then she could go there again. 😀 Even if I did decide to redo it (which I still might at some point) I definitely won’t do it at that school though. So yeah, Sofi loves both campers and hotels, but for me a camper is definitely a much better option.

How about you? 🙂

Jack Hawitt ft. Nyaki – “Dark Hotel”.

This song has been one of my favourites for quite a while now. I’ve heard about Jack Hawitt for the first time some months ago, don’t remember when exactly, and this song was the first of his that I’ve heard. This must have been around the time that my faza on Gwil was slowly fading from the dominant position so I was beginning to look for someone new to get a faza on. Jack Hawitt was one of the first candidates that I’ve considered, mostly just because his name was Jack and I wanted to have a faza on Jack, but it didn’t work out, he’s cool but too normal for that.

What I like most about this song is the lyrics, which I think are very relatable but also full of hope, hope that there is help and support out there, for many people with mental illness, or those who experience some temporary lows or crises in life as well. Also it’s just a very nice song, and both Jack and Nyaki are very good singers.

Jack Hawitt is from Britain, and he’s been active as a singer for a while already, and Nyaki is from Norway, but I haven’t heard any other songs by her.

I hope you enjoy this very nice pop piece. 🙂

Question of the day (7th February).

Hiya people! 🙂

Sorry for the delay with this one, I was down with a migraine yesterday and couldn’t post.

Would you rather go camping or stay in a hotel?

My answer:

I’d stay home haha. But seriously, if I was travelling, I’d definitely go for a hotel. Camping is not my thing whatsoever, I believe it’s one of those things you either love or hate and I’m in the latter category. Travelling can be fun, but it’s also quite a bit stressful for me especially going somewhere further and for longer, and it’s always nicer when you can sleep in a more comfy place.

What would you go for? 🙂
