plans, new plans!

as i lay asleep last night, dreaming something that i likely will never recall, i was suddenly awoken by the sound of my text message alert. this struck me as a strange and somewhat foreign sound as i haven't been using my phone while away due to large and unnecessary costs. i therefore concluded that it must be something important.

the message read: Hi Tor, could you please let me know asap if you like to go skiing in February in France with me and the boys. I would like to book the hotel Club Med and flights, which are nearly fully booked! Please let me know asap. Xx

Another one followed: If you do not like skiing, not a problem, then Goof or someone else will go. In that case you stay here and just discover Amsterdam and friends. So honest. [i think she meant 'be honest.']


so. it looks like im going skiing in France in Feb and staying at Club Med!?!? this is becoming more real by the day.

this whole blog thing is still a bit of a strange concept to me - writing my thoughts for the public to read, judge, criticize, appreciate, relate to...? seems a bit nuts especially since i'm not one to wear my heart on my sleeve. but i think it's something i will grow to enjoy. especially while i'm away. and missing all sorts of people and places. i plan on sharing my thoughts, photos, ideas and of course general updates on my life in amsterdam here. so this is only the beginning. welcome to my life of ordinary occasions!
