naksup trip

Back from the vacation...

...and it really wasn't all too exciting. The drive took about 4 hours to get to our destination, and it wasn't a bad drive. But when you pay to stay a night at a hotel, or in our case a chalet, I guess it's nice to make the most of your time. But we got there just after 7pm and checkout was 11am. So it was pretty much just a place to stay before we moved on to the main accomodation.

That accomodation wasn't what I thought it would be, either. To stay at this inn we paid $30 more than the chalet, and a price increase like that tells me "Bed and Breakfast". But I was wrong. It was just an inn that charged more. Don't get me wrong, it was a nice place, but it would have been everything I was expecting I could leave there with a full stomache. At least this place didn't have checkout until noon.

The drive back was nice. What took us 4 hours on the way there took only 3 hours to get back. Now I get to sleep in "my own bed" and not have to worry about missing a checkout time. I can wander over to the cupboard and find some cereal when I'm ready and eat without having to drive into town to find somebody who will take my money in exchange for cooking me food.

-Always nice to be home

Oh, but wait. What's the deal with hotsprings anyway? It was just a small heated pool of water with another part of the pool blocked off, featuring hotter water. We didn't stay long because it didn't really hold our attention long enough. Next time we do a vacation, it's going to be some place with a beach-front and something to do at night.

-Good to be home.

Back from the dead

I don't know what caused it in the first place, but my dead pixel has fixed itself. It's functioning as normal, no more blue dot on dark backgrounds.


I did the walkout with the landlord today and handed over the keys. I have no home any longer. For the next two weeks I'll be sharing the bottom bunk in my girlfriends brothers room. School starts some time between now and then. And finally, I'll be able to move into my new home.

-Vacation at the HotSprings for the next couple nights
