JFC! It was about 40 degrees at about midnight in Dubai on my way back. I had to go outside to catch a bus to my connecting terminal. Worst of all, I still had my hoodie on but thought I'd be find for those first couple of seconds between leaving the terminal and getting on that bus. It was a mistake. Also how the hell was it still 40 degrees in the middle of the night in the desert???
Point is: we're not at all used to this heatwave!
The weirdest thing was, I took a train to Angoulême about 17:15h, and I saw the temperature rising during the ride! Started off with a nice 25°, but ended up with 32° at half 9 in the evening!

Temperatures shall fall!!! * new band name maybe? ^^ HSB would be thrilled I bet

anyways omg I just saw Munich Central was not approachable right now....you can´t imagine how quickly I dashed to check where your NIC would go past - it´s not via Munich so you should be ok, fingers crossed though...
I sincerely hope it'll be normal for tonight's train ride to Zürich HB. That is to say: temperatures 🌡 falling in the night, instead of rising!

Though, I'll be leaving at 15:45 (3:45pm)! When it's 30+°.

No, I'm going through Offenburg, Freiburg (Breisgau)!

But last year, it was hardly possible to get through Cologne Main Station 🚉!

it should be back to it´s normal level of fuckedupness now... Cologne being Cologne ^^ what were the probs? Repairs? Just full cos full or confusing to find stuff?
No! Water damage in the station hall!
The other times, never had any problems.
And I regularly pass through Cologne. As it's my interchange to go to Hamburg Hbf (and further north).

yeah ...it might sound like a detour but in the end if you´d have to go via Venlo-Düsseldorf/Duisburg or Cologne it´d end up the same-ish timewise, eh? Probably a bit faster, too.. (also who´d want to be in D-dorf XD)

Now, Venlo could be an option if it weren't an enormous detour, and local train between Roermond and Venlo, plus a connection that I certainly won't make.
No, I'm going through the Heuvellandlijn (Maastricht-Valkenburg-Heerlen). Nice view of the (ahum) mountainous region of the Netherlands.

I can´t wait to see more of Heerlen than just the Woonboulevard (or...well ..ikea tbh xD) on Saturday - given that my body stops behaving like an arse... I seem to handle heat worse and worse each year :( I mean it´s round the corner... 1km to Vaals for us - literally....

Just when I thought I got my savings account up to a reasonable level, by birthday bills start coming in. :( One quarterly, one annual, and I think there's another annual one coming.

Lesson: don't buy yourself a car for your birthday. :ugly:
