Meetings & Adventures

Last weekend with a friend from my class, we decided to go to this International Pub night at the Creperiet. I had never been to the place before, and it is actually pretty nice. We didn’t know exactly what to expect, but we sat at a table with a couple other girls who happened to be in the same bio medicine technology class that I have another friend in here in Lund.  It was definitely one of those small world moments. The restaurant was really nice and cozy. It wasn’t long until it was full of people. They had different tables for people speaking different languages. Apparently the table we were sitting at was the one usually for people speaking Swedish, but there were a couple of people who didn’t speak any Swedish, so we went back and forth between the two.

The following weekend the two girls I had met, asked me if I wanted to go to Dalby to go to  the forest and quarry there. The bus arrived and since it was a regional one, I knew that I could load up my Jojo card on the bus. However, I had a different card with me than I normally do, which doesn’t have a chip. For some reason the bus driver wouldn’t let me use it. So I ran off the bus, leaving my stuff with the two girls. to load up my card at the train station, which was next to the bus stop. There were people there, so when I came running back the bus was leaving. I ended up having to wait 20 minutes. I didn’t have a phone with me, because my phone’s charger got destroyed and it is a very old phone so I am completely out of a phone for the time being. I thought that I would just take another bus, that went directly to where we were going. However, I forgot that it was a Saturday, so the buses have an altered schedule and the bus that goes directly went once every two hours. Instead I waited for a different bus that came in 20 minutes. I felt terrible since I didn’t have a way to contact the girls. When the bus did come, I did ask a guy sitting in front of me to use his phone. Thankfully, he was kind and let me borrow to message them that I was on my way right behind them. They waited for me in Sandby. I thought that I had made them miss the bus, but the bus they were supposed to be able to catch, left a little bit early, so they missed it. We realized that the next bus wasn’t going to arrive for an hour. So we were stuck as a bus station in Sandby which is a tiny little town with nothing to really do. Though, apparently, they have a great butcher shop there. Eventually the bus came, and we made it to the forest.

We looked up the time the bus would come, cause we were not going to miss it. I think we spent more time trying to get to and from this place than we actually spent there. There is sort of two parts to the forest and we stayed in the southern part, though there was also a pasture for cows and horses as well. What we didn’t realize was how small the southern part was. After what happened earlier, we didn’t want to tempt fate and miss our bus, so we stayed in the southern part and didn’t go to the quarry. It was definitely a fun time. The forest is really quite nice. I definitely want to go back to explore the rest. img_4818 img_4820 img_4819
