Running And Eating In Brussels
I am in Brussels at the minute and I’m in the hostel bar drinking Pepsi and kinda doubting my fucking sanity. I am a 32 year old man and I’m mentally criticising this German man who is playing darts fucking badly. Every time he fucks up I want to burst out laughing but I can’t as he looks very serious. Besides, he is drinking Duvel and I know how quickly that shit can fuck you up. More importantly he is the one holding the darts.
I’m quite happy. I went out running this morning for the first time around Brussels. Some half French asshole did that hilarious “hurry up slow runner!” act and I was in no mood for him. I was close to shouting “fuckie offie sea food plate!” but I am not here to make enemies.
I finally found out how to take selfies. They annoy the fucking hole off me so I’m only gonna be doing this whilst I’m travelling around Europe.
I got the Eurostar over last night and I actually ran most of the 2 miles to the hostel through Brussels with my backpack on. I’m packing super fucking light and I’ve got all my valuables here in my running bum bag. I feel free.
Earlier I was troubled by some silly drinking urges. They come out of nowhere and I wish they would fuck off. This condition of being a fucking booze bag on conditional day release is tiring but I’m determined to just not drink for today. I ended up just going into Pizza Hut, had dinner and then it went away. I don’t know. I wish I was normal.
I’ve been walking crazy amounts. I’ve seen most of Brussels City Center and it is rather pretty. I spent an hour just sitting down close to the Central Station eating chips. Relaxing.
Tomorrow I’m heading to Dusseldorf for one day. To be honest there isn’t many places that interest me in the West of Germany. I’ve already been to Cologne and it is nice but I want to see more of Europe.
I’ve got to be in Paris by the 29th of March so I’m heading East and then looping back. I don’t know whether to go back via Munich or to loop around Southern Italy and Southern France. Like most things I’m just taking the journey planning day by day and not worrying too much.
