Sitting waiting wishing

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.” -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Finest meat you’ll ever taste

(Biking) “Quite a lot of midges today…” – “Oh my god they’re everywhere!” – “Wait… now this is really ugly.”

Chances are that nobody will ever get what this cartoon actually is about. I should have taken a photo.

So let’s at least have a good soundtrack:

12 Hour First Aid Bag

(Swimming) Incredibly useful things to bring for a 12 hour swimming:

  • big towels (3 at least)
  • swimsuits (the more the better, they’re only dry once)
  • goggles + swimming cap

And now for the most important part: keeping warm!

  • at least two thermos flasks of hot drinks (or soup)
  • warm sleeping bag
  • beanie (your head gets cold first!)
  • reeeally warm clothes (the ones you’d wear for skiing)

Plus: Your own food*! + lots of chocolate + grape sugar + vaseline + gel (anti pain)

Surprisingly, I did not need anything to drive away the boredom. There wasn’t any. Plus, I was too blinded by chlorine and too tired to read anything containing more than three words in rather huge letters.

* As for the food: I’ll share my favorite recipes here… if I remember ;)
