Having paid off all my credit cards, allowed 200 for Brussels spending money, AND booked all my December hotels, to still be only -1100 on my bank is not bad. Still within the limit after all that. It IS turning around. All I had to use my cards for was the £158 return train fare to Vienna and back.
Well I bit the bullet and booked all the DB tickets for the December trip to Vienna. Total damage £158. Not bad is it! With stopover in Munich Monday night going and Frankfurt Friday night coming back. 27 euros Brussels to Munich, 39 euros Munich to Vienna arriving 1130am, 84 euros Vienna to Frankfurt arriving 136pm Friday, 27 euros again Frankfurt to Brussels arriving 935am Saturday morinng, with awkward 3 hours to kill before my 1252 Eurostar home. What will I do? See what time O’Reilly’s opens and have an Irish breakfast maybe. Spend an hour in Cine Paris till midday. Pop up to Gare du Nord for last window perhaps. Anyway £158 for trains to Vienna and back is not bad at all. And that includes a First Class booking for the Munich to Vienna leg! Treated myself there.
What an amazing experience with Adelina in Manhattan, and with Lucy in 5th, and with Amanda in WSK, and with Manuela in Burggasse Peep. And of course THIS is why I travel. And why I always will. But amazing new revenue source I have discovered, I can have an extra £410 a month for reducing my credit card debts, or for travelling, by NOT going to strip clubs anymore! It is a Eureka moment. I mean obvious, but I had to come to a point where I was capable of stopping. Like it was obvious I had to stop drinking coke, but I had to come to a point where I was capable of stopping.
