It was very early last Thursday, and per usual I was a couple of minutes late. This was a slight problem as I had an important meeting in Amsterdam and I could not miss the train! Naturally the pump gave a clog-alarm during breakfast but I figured this was probably a false-alarm as it usually is. I re-start the bolus and quickly bike to the station. The moment I drive off it starts to rain but I don’t have time to grab some gloves so in six minutes time I no longer have any feeling in my hands. With three minutes to spare I am at the station, so far so good!
The first couple of days in Groningen have passed and I have survived them remarkably well!. Though I do have to get used to being back in a student room and especially not seeing the boyfriend every day is tough. Even the 3-hour train journey is going okay. Although I did make the mistake of wanting to switch trains at the one station where half of Holland has to get on the train to Groningen. I was happy I could still sit on the stairs rather than having to stand for an hour!
