I must enjoy every moment I have left here, so last night I went out, and for some reason did not go to bed until 5 am. This is me and the man I aspire to be, god, I want his facial hair capabilities. And yes, I wore a baithing suit as a shirt. At the end of the night we ended up at this insanely beautiful extravigantly sized apt... the views from the balcony were amazing, and so was this surfer statue.
After two weeks of traveling I arrived home yesterday and decided to bike to the beach. My ride out there was pleasant, the sun was high and very strong. I found a nice little patch of sand, derobbed and relaxed... for about 20 mins until I saw very scary rain clouds roll in. So, I got back on my bike and hit the trail. My intention was to bike as quickly as possible, however, this guy decided it was his duty to help me pass the time by talking to me and repeatedly asking me out, while i repeatedly said i have to do my home work tonight... yes, it was a Saturday. I think that's worse than if I said I had to wash my hair... I wanted to tell him his slow peddeling was a drag. But instead I was polite and dealt with him for more than an hour.
The trail to the beach passes by the biggest horse farm I have ever seen... it streches for more than a mile and has some absolutely beautiful ponies scattered through their fields.
Tyler's first night in Paris we ate at a restaurant overlooking Nautre Dame, where we listened to some nice man playing piano... after we took the boat ride through the city around sunset, it was beautiful, sadly, toward the end both of us had gotten so cold we begged for it to end. I think that is my 5th time taking said boat. Maybe the 6th will be romantic...
While Tyler and I were in Paris the weather was overcast and rainy, so when we got to Mtown and there was sun, I knew we had to leap at it. We left our bags at my house, grabbed bikes, and charged towards the beach. Unfortunately for Tyler, it was not a comfortable bike seat experience... the ride to the beach is 12 km...9 miles in each direction. It is a ride that typically takes around an hour and a half. It took us a little extra time on the way there, stopping for groinal relaxation... but when we realized how late it was, after only spending 45 mins at the beach we booked it back and made it home in 50 mins! look at us.
