Arriving at Nurnberg HauptBahnhof only 4 and a half hours later was a mixed experience. I was, on one hand, glad to have arrived; but on the other hand, was hit by a bus within 10 minutes. Literally, but not severely: P I was standing on the corner with the other girl waiting for her friend when a bus turned into the street. At first I thought someone was really rudely shoving me out of their way, until I spun around to see the arse end of a bus on my backpack
While trying to navigate the underground system, which normally I am pretty good at, though for some reason I was struggling this time - I blame the bus incident. A nice guy came up to help me work it out. Turns out we were getting on the same train but his stop was a few after mine. He offered to show me around Nurnberg so we swap numbers. Not sure if that was the right thing to do, so I kind of made up my mind that I wasn’t going to call him anyway. When I got off the train at my destination, he got off as well to make sure I was ok, and then offered to walk me to my destination. He seemed nice enough but I wasn’t overly comfortable so I declined.
My next couch surfing host- Yunus, came to meet me at the petrol station, since I was completely lost. One thing about European trains that I don’t like- they are great, punctual, and clean- but the stations have about 7 exit points, so you never really know which one to head for.
not sure whose brilliant idea it was to embark on an underground tour of some bier cellars (i blame the boys: D) but we did it and although somewhat interesting, only barely
Martin and Yunus had only just moved to Nurnberg (and I was their first couch surfer - hopefully I didn’t scare them off ever having any one else stay) which was good so we could explore the town together instead of me worrying that they had seen everything a million times before.
I was pretty tired and thankfully the boys were hung over as well, so we all agreed that an early night was in order. Friends DVD and some pretzels and we were set.
