07.01.2012 - Kyoto --> Fukuoka  

Hello, everybody!

Here's my rather short update of the day. I took the luxury of sleeping long, since my check-out time was only at 11 am. I went straight to the station - no wait, that's not right. First I went to the post office and tried to withdraw some more money. I then moved on to Kyoto station with 5000 yen in my wallet. Not the world, but hey. Once there 1000 yen were invested into a bento box. I had to eat, after all.

There are no direct trains from Kyoto to Fukuoka, so I had to change trains at Osaka. Osaka... oh dear. @_@ Lovely as the city can be, chaning trains there isn't the easiest thing to manage. I checked my tickets. I had six minutes to complete the task and find the platform the train for Fukuoka left. Once in Osaka, I stormed right off, but unfortunately my luggage proved to be a big handicap, since I was dependent on elevators and those need forever to bring you from one floor the next. Then I found a train that left at the according hour, so I went for that, but then I saw that it wasn't the right one, so I had to get back. Waiting for the elevator. -_- And then, the elevator said "to platforms 20, 21, 22". Once I got out, platform 20 was nowhere to be seen. I would have had to change elevators on a mid-floor. No need to say that I did not get that train. -_-#

Back to the main hall --> elevator. There I went to the counter for a new ticket. Got one for a train leaving about 15 minutes later. Platform 20. At least I already knew where that was now. Getting back --> elevator. I really made it in time. I got into the train immediately, looking for my car and seat a bit later. At least I was in. ^^

And oh dear, I was like the main attraction on that train. ^^" At least in my car. At a certain station the train got really full and the seat beside my own was supposed to be occupied by someone. Fantastic. I can do almost everything with my suitcase. However, I cannot put it on the top shelf - it's just too heavy. I had to get it out of the way, though. So I tried anyway, but failed miserably. After a while a guy sitting behind me took mercy on me and offered his help. Nothing that's to be taken for granted. Well, once again, I got lucky like that. What really entertained everybody, though, was the fact that he too had quite some trouble with the suitcase. Finally, together we managed to put it away. It was really embarrassing. But I'm glad I keep meeting kind people. ^^

Once everything was set, I got back into my seat. I had already finsihed my bento box and went for some music. The A/C wasn't exactly uncomfortable, but it didn't feel good in my nose, so I decided to put on a mask. I had bought some the other day, after all, and since I had them, why not use them. some time later Yasu's voice had actually lured me to sleep. Is it strange to say that? Somehow he has such a calming voice to me. ^^ Even with the more up-beat songs in between. Well, time went by very quickly. At the last station before we arrived at Fukuoka that guy and his friend helped me getting my suitcase back down. I'll forever be thankful. <3

Hakata station turned out to be much bigger than I had expected. I got lucky, though. I could see my hotel through one of the windows and went looking for a near-by exit and just a minute later I was at the counter, checking in. The room is rather small and the A/C just a bit loud, but it's okay. ^^ I have a lawson right downstairs that accepts my Visa, so I can buy food and drinks without using up my money. That's very relieving.

Tomorrow I won't be doing much, seeing how I'm broke. Well, not really broke, I just can't get to my money. ^^" Stupid security limit. >_< Well, I have 4000 yen left. That should get me at least a poster from the Musical. ^^ I'm already really looking forward to the Musical tomorrow. :DDDDDDDDD  I'll give a detailed report. ^^

For now, this is it. Have a good time everybody.

And B.A.-chan: HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! \(^o^)/  *throws confetti* Celebrate decently! :D

I'd probably be so confused. I'm not used to taking trains, never mind being in a foreign country.

That must have been embarrassing. I'd have definitely been embarrassed too and my face would have gotten all red, haha.

Have fun at the musical! :D

LOL! Osaka just keeps confusing me. I guess I can't read the signs properly, or something. Osaka really is different. ^^ I'm glad everything turned out okay. :D

Tonight was great. I think I said that already, but I am really so hyper I can't stop going on about it. ^^" You can read my post on it too, but it's really just fangirly stuff. ^^"

Masks! Masks! Masks!
Heehee, it's mask time again... Thank god you haven't gotten to wearing them in Austria as well...

And thanks for the birthday wished, had a great party with a great (but incomplete :) crowd. No Koichi there, of course. Could not come because of a stupid musical. Hm, perhaps next time ;-)

Re: Masks! Masks! Masks!
Wearing them here would feel eird. Plus, it's nto really as necessary. for the main part, anyway.

Oh, really. Tell you what, next year I'll go to KinKi con and get Koichi and I'll bring him to your party. XDDDDDD

PS: Can you tell I'm bored at work, answering comments from about a week ago? ^^"
