My Christmas Song...

It is about few more hours to go before I will be on that plane to Barcelona. My prime trip alone to somewhere else than Dublin. I feel everything. Excited (the most!!), worried, happy, curious, nervous and few more. This is something, a plan, that come out spontaneously. And I still can't believe it that I actually made it. (At least the part of purchasing the tickets, booking the accomodation and checking my way through to go to Valencia from Barcelona - I haven't bought the train ticket yet as the website doesn't actually tell you how to purchased the ticket. Probably I have to check the train station itself once I got myself to Barcelona).

Here, I am sitting on a couch in my living room and thinking. Actually, I have kind of a major problem with me now. A taxi to the airport. I have been calling basically all the taxi centre located in Dublin to book a taxi to go to the airport next morning, and it is totally dissapointed. No taxi available at this moment, and no pre-book can be made!!

It's horrible. I am thinking my way out of here. Does that mean I should have to walk to the airport? That is simply outrageous. Impossible!! Usually, the trip by bus will take about half and hour to forty five minutes. And taxi, would be about less the time. But still... walking?! Not even a suggestion!!

Oh, you will surely wondering why the heck don't I want to take a bus instead of a taxi? That is another problem I am having here. Bus is not going to start until 7 in the morning. Bus schedule (since it's only 26th December - people are still in Christmas mode), is actually based on the Sunday time schedule. That is why.

Probably, I think I will have to cross my finger and wish for the best tomorrow morning, to get a taxi on the road. What a gamble! I hope I 'win' this time! *lucky wink*

Everything is packed. And, I have another problem. A tiny one. I was thinking, why my bag seems to be so light?! I did asked my friend about it, and she said, if it's light, then it is light. As I will be topping up the content when I come back from Barcelona?! *giggles*

Uhuhhh... the shopping! I just can't wait. People keep on telling me the best of shopping in Barcelona. The uniqueness of spending your money bluntly in the city, without even noticing it. I loooove shopping too much, as I think I will be having so much fun with this time vacation! *another lucky wink*

Before I shut my mouth up, I would like to share you what happened during Christmas in Dublin. Most probably, this is what happened to in another European countries. On the 24th December, the Christmas Eve, most of the shops closed early. I pressumed, simply because family are gathered together to eat in a 
family-like. The togetherness. 

So, basically what I did is I bought my groceries, some of 'em to
keep me alive with descent food as on Christmas Day all shops will be shut.
It was rather a quiet night, I must say (Darn quiet for me alright, as both of my housemates, went back to their brother's house, and I was left alone in the house). *sad look*

Oh, and the bus services ended up early, as soon as 9 at night. So, it is a quiet night.

On Christmas Day itself (which is today), the road is as empty as the forest. I peeked from my balcony 
and what I saw is just an empty four lanes road. And it was a cold night. All shops are closed. No cars on the road. Dublin is completely 
shut down!! 

It is rather depressing, alright. Oh, and my housemates are still at their brother's house. So, here I am. Alone still, in the house, flicking through all the tv channels that Sky Tv provide.

Friends, The Holiday, SpongeBob Squarepants and such. I am still thinking how can I go to the airport in few more hours. Should I rather gamble and walk ahead to find a taxi on the road at 4 in the morning?

My flight is at 7.10am. And I should be there by 5 in the morning. I will have to have all the best of luck with me on this one. *hoping looks*

So, that's it for now. Most probably, this is the last post from me, until I have a chance to write/update you guys from Barcelona (if I manage!!). Wish me loads of luck and I'll be posting again soon. Or, maybe I will before I leave the house later? *wondering*

Take care and I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you, Merry Christmas and hope you had an enjoyable one!! Cheers!! *minimum twirl with excitement*
