Holiday, Day 5

I got siiiiiiiiiiiiiick!
After starting to sniffle yesterday evening it worsened over night – nose is running, throat hurts and I cough sometimes (glad I bought cough drops yesterday, although that wasn’t the purpose but because it said “Peach” and I was curious about the taste) -_- and i actually thought if I might have been infected with JE as I have 3 insect bites but well this would have been a bit too fast regarding incubation time (and as I specifically asked my doctor if it would be better to get injections before my travel and he denied….well hoping for the best that the Inari bugs didn’t carry the virus – although I don’t know if the other 2 were at Inari or in the city when I walked around)…
but the stings hurt >.< not the one close to my eye but I got one at my collar bone and one at my left hand’s middle finger – so as soon as hair or shirt touches the one at collar bone it itches >.< same for the finger as it itches as soon as something touches it grrrrrrr.

Weather worsened again too. Forecast and internet said it would be nice and sunny … yeah. Clouds. Grey. Some wind. Hooray!
Nevertheless I went on my chosen tour for today which led me from Kyoto station to Kinkaku-ji followed by Ginkaku-ji, the Path of Philosophy and Nanzen-ji.

My travel to Kinkaku-ji was a looooooooong one and I fell asleep in the bus but woke up 2 stations before I needed to get off.
After leaving the bus I walked the few meters uphill to the temple, paid the admission fee and was a bit surprised that I just paid to be led to the temple, a bit of a walk and led out again…. erm….? I wasn’t sure what happened but there went 600 Yen~
It’s a really nice place, even (or especially) with that weather condition today. I think I would’ve been blind when the sun would have been out 😀
The park area is nice but those gift stores at the end of the route were a bit too much for my taste – no, I didn’t take any pictures but there were a few (lot).

I jumped into the bus and drove to Ginkaku-ji, went uphill to the temple, paid admission fee of 400 Yen and was led by the route signs… well this was a worse let-down 😀
I liked the scenery but THIS would have been actually much nicer with good weather 😛 (call me demanding or something but it’s true)

After following the route to the souvenir shop area (-_-) I exited the area and walked down the hill to get on the Path of Philosphy to visit Nanzen-ji.
It took a while to get there (dunno, it felt like 2-3KM?) and there were some small shops and cafés on the side of the road. I actually bought a silk scarf for my grandma at one of these shops and talked to one of the ladies there who was surprised that I spoke Japanese (dejavu of yesterday’s reactions) 😀 so we spoke a bit before I left and went further on the path… for that part I was glad it wasn’t warmer or sunnier – it was a nice walk!

On the way I saw some nice leaves on the ground and red leaves on trees, some buds in full bloom, some cute birds, cats and a monkey! Yes, a monkey! 😮
Took me by surprise. It scared away a cat 😮
Shortly after I saw an old waggon which seems to be a sleeping place for some cats – 3 were already cuddling together there while a 4th jumped onto the roof of the waggon.
Another one wasn’t so far away from there either but was more of a poser as it followed a couple, sat on a bench and stayed there until we took our pictures. After the couple left and it got sick of following them, it turned around and followed some bikes… that black cat actually reminded me of Baghira (The Jungle Book) – especially because of the eyes ❤ I think if I wouldn’t be allergic (or actually liked cats) I would go for such a beauty~ :3

I passed a lot of shrines and temples on the way without entering them as I was getting tired of walking – breathing was also hard due to my cold and my head started to hurt so I just wanted to finish that walk. So I visited Nanzen-ji and walked around on its grounds before continueing to the subway station.

After getting off at my hotel’s station I went to get some food and entered my hotel, took a hot shower, ate something and rolled into my bed 😀 where I am ever since haha.
Forecast says it will rain tomorrow – I guess I’ll see how I feel tomorrow but my forecast says that I might stay in the hotel to cure :/

On the bright side: I finally found out how the aircon in this room REALLY works… so far I thought it would run automatically and correct temperature when I press up/down. It didn’t. Because there is a special button to activate the aircon to blast heat or cold air into the room … and now it does do weird and creepy sounds, haha….ha. Fitting for Halloween?


Holiday, Day 4

Today it was FINALLY sunny! YaY!
Although I didn’t feel well and reset my alarm twice (8AM ->9AM -> 10AM) before getting up and beginning the day with chatting on Facebook and playing Pokémon GO and getting ready to leave 😀
(I seem to have been stung by some insect at my yesterday’s trip as I got somebite mark close to my right eye directly below my glasses rim. Strange)

I took the train to Kyoto Station and bought a Bus & Subway Ticket for 2 days which allows me to travel freely on all lines for bus and subway (excluding JR services which doesn’t save me from spending 640 Yen/day for the trip hotel <-> city) throughout Kyoto.

I took the Karasuma-subway to the Imperial Palace and took a walk while the sun burned down on me – yay for cold wind! I saw some cats (I woke them and my shutter scared the tri-colored one so the red one woke up too and was distressed because of the cuddle partner being scaredy cat and jumping away  T_T), Pidgeys….pardon…Pidgeons, a (poser) turtle, some ducks, more pidgeons and a blue-red-colored bird that fished in the pond for fish 😮 he was really cool although kinda fast for my normal camera lense so I tried with my other lense to catch him faster in his dive but that barely worked out either 😀 was worth a try and was fun to wait for it to dive into the water and catch a fish, anyways 😀

On my way through the park area I found a huge… well, dunno what it is actually – a thing between apple and peer? HUGE! Man…

I also spoke some Japanese with some older women – I think they are more approachable or actually they like to find out if you understand them as all of them were talking to me first 😛 Funny thing was actually their reaction when I replied as they didn’t actually expect me to reply in Japanese :3
A lot of helicopters were flying across the park area – don’t know if they were filming 😮

After leaving the palace park through the south exist I walked (!) to Nijo-jo. It would have been easier to take the subway or bus buuuuuut I wanted to see a bit of the street life and you can’t get that with sitting in a bus or subway – I did that the last few days aswell (although I had wished for an umbrella a few times but no shop close to buy one) but after a while you get sick of walking around – especially the day after hiking Mt. Inari.
I tried to walk in the shadows as much as possible but the ~2km felt like ages…. but I made it, paid the fee (600 Yen) and went to Nijo-jo.
It’s simply awesome!
I loved the palace – although you can’t take pictures there – it’s a completely different world 😮 I loved how the wood floor squeaked when you walked over it. it must have been really awesome living there and hear any person passing by 😀 I really loved the golden pictures on the walls – especially the tigers and eagles.
Walking there was great 🙂 and exhausting – barely any shadows except in the building but still cool. There’s also an exhibition of some expensive cars inside Nijo-jo but as that costs extra (600 Yen) I didn’t go there 😮 but I took a picture of the advertisement poster 😀 I would’ve liked to see the cars but not for an additional fee. Seriously not.

After leaving the castle I went to the bus station to drive back to Kyoto and go shop some food (including some Halloween sweets which are indeed really really really sweet >.< could only eat one so far as I’m afraid I’d feel losing my teeth by eating the second one – I ate the cat 😀 I’ll have the pumkin tomorrow. picture below)
and presents for my dearies at home.
In the shopping mall below Kyoto station they had a huge picture for Halloween and costumes for kids so they could get dressed up and take pictures – looked fun 🙂 and there were looooots of kids around there.
I drove back to the hotel and soaking myself in the tiny bathtub 😀
can’t stretch my legs in there (hey, it’s Japan, there’s not enough space for anything – just squeeze and it fits *coough*)
but it’s nice to have some cuddly minutes in hot water – until it cools down >.<

I hope for another nice day tomorrow~ although it’ll be Halloween and I personally hate it. But it’s just one day and won’t make any difference regarding my plans so it’s fine…. and the sweets are awesome 😀


Pokémon GO: 11th Week

This week was a rather quiet one.
I walked my last meters before the Halloween event and before going on holiday to get my Alakazam 🙂
I can barely connect to the internet and due to the Halloween event I catch only ghosts -_-  I really can’t wait until that one’s over.
I hated those pidgeys and Rattatas but at least I can think about how to cook, bake or grill them (Pidgeys! Not the rats!) – what to do with ghosts except vaccuum them? Seriously…
I like that the buddy system was altered though 🙂 It helped to get my Ninetails \o/ and due to the event and lots of Cubones close to my hotel on my first day I evolved mine to Marowak. YaaaaaY.
I also grabbed a bad joke from 9Gag or wherever I saw this and named a CP 666 / HP 66 Raticate “Satan”.

But ever since I am on holiday I only caught Gastlys, Haunters, Gengars, Cubones and Meowth…. what the hell is up with the Meowth wave?
I also see Scyther but appearantly it is either too far away or gets blocked by the shitty ghosts -_- which don’t even have good stats so keeping them is a waste too. And besides IF I catch Gengar it has crappy stats and/or CP 😀 like that CP 26… really what the…
So whenever I get the chance I catch, (evolve) and destroy.
my count since last night – 11/28/2016 11:19PM up to today 11/29/2016 3:39PM (including some hours of sleep and being out to explore without taking my phone with me):
PokéStops 29 (got 2 at hotel and if GPS jumps I can reach the 2nd one sometimes)
Gastly 1 ran away, 13 caught (7 evolved)
Haunter 1 caught
Pidgey 1 ran away, 1 caught
Cubone 1 caught

*sigh* I can’t wait for the end of this event. I actually think about hoarding the Gastlys until then and throw in a Lucky Egg to get Double-EXP when mass-evolving them ~.~ I still would have enough time to do so.

Oh, on that note. I had quite the fun at the airports.
First of all: Schiphol, Netherlands, does have lots of PokéStops but no Pokémon to catch – which is good as I already had trouble to keep playing (even if that was with my 4G connection) – lots of signals there disturbing the GPS.
Second: Zurich, Switzerland, does show Pokémon and a few PokéStops – I caught 2 Gastlys while waiting for my flight using the airport’s wifi (one of these in the picture below).
Third: Narita International Airport, Japan, (picture below) has looooooots of PokéStops, no Pokémon – same as Schiphol.
I connected to the hotel’s wifi as soon as I entered my room (picture below) and hooray~ 2 Stops 1 Gym directly there – GPS jumps a bit so I can reach both stops sometimes…

Since 27th of October my bag is full or close to be full. Of course I beat Mystic and Valor when it’s about time for my daily cooldown to reset 😀
I was actually mean once as I placed a Mr. Mime which can’t be caught in Japan as it is EU exclusive – someone didn’t take it so well and placed a Farfetch’d (Japan exclusive) right after claiming the gym T___T returning the favor it seems 😀
I really hope I can catch one (as hatching it has a rotten rate – same for Australian and US exclusives Kangaskhan and Tauros) but right now with that wave of ghosts and cats I can’t even get the Scyther I see randomly ~.~ or Pidgeys.

I also found out how bad of some players take jokes via Facebook comments 😛
The main post was about Gengar being the best Pokè-Friend ever… I disagreed (as it is damn annoying and useless) and said I hate Gengar (“it” for reference) and hope for the day when the event ended so I’ll get my pidgeys back….  some dudes went bonkers 😀 Read for yourself:

Yes, I was serious about the event being stupid to mass-spawn ghosts (I DO understand it’s a literal reference to Halloween which is – thank god – not common in neither my country nor in my country-of-choice-to-live-in and ignored by most people – except Americans and those with kids because kids want sweets! But really, that’s why I can’t stand Halloween because the original purpose is far from throwing sweets at dumb kids that fear the dentist…..okay back to topic…) and I understand that in some areas you never see the ghost types – as I never find any fire types in my area… but that’s supposed to be the point of the game, right? To travel and explore 😮 at least I understood that and thus I don’t cry about it. Thus I get my fire Pokémon step-by-step through hatching, catch by chance (eg in Germany) and Buddy System (cheerio for this)!
I enjoy part of the event (related to Buddy System and more Candy Drops by caught/hatched/released monsters) – still I hate the ghosts…. can’t grill/bake/cook them 😦
Though I do wonder: what do the series characters actually eat? Only vegetables and mushrooms? I kind of doubt that 😀 I guess Miltank has a different purpose besides giving milk too 😀 why not grill a Pidgey? Or make a Rattata-touille?
I’ll stop now before some readers might get headaches or nightmares :p

Holiday, Day 3

Eurf. I didn’t plan much today and that was a good thing because I had a 2 hour walk to the top of Mt. Inari 😀 I was actually glad I wore my slippers instead of my sports shoes today – these would have been hell with that up and down with walking over different materials (stone – partly slippery, uneven stones, gravel, soil and sand, lose vines and leaves) – especially when leaving the main path to check out the shrines.
*** WARNING: This post contains a lot of red-colored gates! …… and foxes. ***

After waking up I went outside – totally happy it wouldn’t rain today……. I set a step outside. It was windy, cold and raining… okay…. back to hotel, grabbing a jacket and my umbrella and went out again. Rain stopped. SERIOUSLY?!

I took the train to Kyoto Station and switched line for Inari Station right n front of the first gates to the temple area of Fushimi Inari-Taisha.
The train was packed with people and there were lots more in front of the station already 😀 love how it’s so popular!

I heard lots of foreign languages which was fun as I enjoyed myself with a guessing game (although the closer I got to the top the more I heard only French people *lol*).

I checked out the first temples and all of the small ones on the way to the top.
I bought some souvenirs at my first stops before ascending through the torii (gates).

When I was about half-way I was sweating like crazy although it was really cloudy and partly windy it didn’t help with the exhaustion haha.
I took a break and waited until my body calmed down before ascending again. I had quite the nice view shortly before the top.
When i took pictures of some stone statues I saw a cute little cat and approached it – sadly it was shy and avoided me but I could take a picture – it was so cute (but really thin so I think it’s a stray or barely fed)
I ascended to the top (233meter above sea level) and yay~ descended again. I bought a soy bean ice-cream as reward when going down, took a break to eat it (because it’s seen as impolite to eat or drink while walking) and made my way down to the station… which was faster than the other way around 😀
Shortly before the station it began to rain again – hooray for first time using my umbrella since I bought it yesterday, haha.

My trip took about 2,5 hours in total (excluding train drive from hotel and back) but I’m glad I didn’t plan anything else for today 🙂
I took 207 pictures today, including a lot of fox statues *_* I really love these foxes~ what I didn’t know yet: their faces differ from each other 😮 I didn’t even recognize that when I was there (I blame my excitement!), but saw that now as I scrolled through the pictures:


The weather doesn’t seem to like me – I really hope I will have some sunny days until I leave Kyoto x.x
(I could’ve stayed in the Netherlands *lol* although the rain phases here differ from the Netherlands – at least I wasn’t soaked to the bone yet 😀 )

Holiday, Day 2

Hello world, my alarm went off at 8AM. After ~6 hours of sleep I felt like I hit a train or vice versa. Every inch of my body screamed in pain after that long day … yes, I know it always sounded insane to travel like this but well I wanted to do that and as I’m not getting younger….. …………….. ………………I’d totally do it again!

So here I am. In a hotel in Kyoto. Sleepy. Hurting. Who cares?! I got ready and left the hotel. I didn’t plan much anyways as the forecast said: Clouds and Rain. my phone added additional information “chances < 6 – 30% before 5PM” great! I thought…

I went off to Kyoto station and after running around like a moron on search for the observation deck I finally found it!
After leaving the station to the back side – I thought it would be the front, well, taking pictures there, then running inside again and found the Sky garden AKA observation deck (On that note…. why is there already a christmas tree at the station?!)

and finally was able to connect to the Kyoto Free Wifi which wasn’t working stable so I just dropped it anyways, going out on the right front side and went on search for the Kyoto Tower. Which is kind of hard to find if you aren’t paying attention because unlike Tokyo Tower this one is not a tower building but set up ON the Kyoto Hotel across the bus station of Kyoto station and you need to go inside and take the elevator to the 11th floor to get access to the tower. After buying a ticket I went up another 5 floors (which brought me up to the observation deck at 100meter above ground level) and went on a short course. There is also a small shrine there – it’s cute (and I forgot its name).

After this brief visit I went downstairs again and walked to find Takashimaya Dept Store. It took quite some time due to traffic light waits and I thought I used a long time to walk there but I don’t actually know as I didn’t track my time.
When I finally was there I nearly freaked out because of my running around at Kyoto station I totally forgot to exchange money – as I was already at the 5th floor of the store, I made a round through the Pokémon Center and went downstairs again. I left the building – it started to rain. Wait, shortly after 11 AM it said it would be like 6% chance for rain….wtf?! Gladly, the shopping streets are roofed so no worries. I only got some water on me while crossing the street and heading to the tourist information to ask where the next exchange is possible. If I would have asked at Takashimaya’s information desk I may have found out before leaving the building and returning anyways that they have an exchange…. doh!
Well, who cares, a bit of water doesn’t hurt and I got my money exchanged, got a discount card for the store (which I didn’t use at all as the card isn’t valid for purchases at the Pokémon Center buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I will give it to a friend because she loves Hello Kitty while ….I don’t), went to shop Pokémon stuff and got a tax refund.

After leaving the building (yet again) it was raining. I crossed the street and visited the Disney Store to buy some presents. It still rained when I left and headed down the street to get food and check out Tokyu Hands.
I wanted to buy an umbrella but man these are expensive in some shops >.> I left without buying any and made my way back to Kyoto Station using a different way – which felt much shorter than my original track (never listen to explanations of a map given by tourist information ever again) and I paid a short visit to Higashi Hongan-ji

before heading to a store and bought a new converter as my old one doesn’t accept my laptop’s charger and I needed another one for that purpose.
I bought an umbrella while being there anyways – guess what…. right, the rain stopped!

Halloween is less of a thing than I thought also some shops do sell costumes, decoration and cafes do have a Halloween menu – like this perticular shop 😀 (although I’m not quite sure what to think about the “Frozen” tart in that display….)

I went back to the station and queued to buy a train ticket back to my station, returned to my hotel to put down my stuff and left again to buy some food – without the umbrella….guess: yeah, it started to rain again.
I’m not really eating healthy but it’s yummy!

Time kind of flew by today… and it is 8:57PM now – unbelievable 😮 when I got back it was like 4PM or so – but I didn’t had planned lots of things anyways due to first day and bad weather conditions. Kinda looking forward to tomorrow when the weather clears up (hopefully)

Holiday Begins, Day 1

My last work day ended on 25th of October at 3:30PM and finally my brain went into holiday mode~ well. It would. Not immediately but after packing up the last things and raiding in FFXIV that very evening.
I was really anxious to forget something so I had a list and started to pack already that weekend before I had holiday – plenty of time but I get older…. I forget things even if it’s on a list haha 😀

Well~ on 26th of October I woke up at the same time as usual – 6AM! I got ready and threw the last few things into my luggage before leaving the house to get on my bus to the train station. It was actually on time so I made it to my train as expected. After switching trains at Amsterdam Sloterdijk I got off at Schiphol safe and sound.
I dropped off my heavy luggage and went through the check for my hand luggage and myself – of course the system reacted again so I was checked manually (I think my new Jeans were activating the alarm as they are new and may have had traces of the metal thing to activate the alarm when being stolen although that was removed and the Jeans washed – who knows).

I had about 2 hours to wait (better early then late) for my flight and sat in front of the gate reading through a guide and Facebook 😀 Boarding went pretty fast and there was still a lot of place for luggage although the steward asked us to keep jackets and small items with us as the flight was completely booked and they had space issues due to that… in the end we started with a delay of 10 minutes due to loading of luggage – which sounded like they threw the stuff into the machine without any care. Really loud 😮
I overslept the food phase so I didn’t get a croissant – instead I got a piece of chocolate which was placed on my jacket before I woke up haha.

While we started late we were early by 5 minutes when landing in Zurich, Switzerland. I got off the plane and went to search for my gate which happened to be in wing E. This isactually funny. The airport looks really old and is actually really dark – at least when you land in the wing I landed (which number I don’t recall) – I followed the signs to “E” and passed a visa check without any problems (as I’m an EU citizen harhar) and went down the stairs following the signs to “E”. I was suprised: There is a small train line between A/B/C/D and E. You need to drive with it for 2-3 minutes and get out to find your gate 😀 That was at first really confusing but fun!
On the way to my gate I found my first souvenir: a St. Bernard plush ❤ He’s so cute~ and fluffy~
I seemed to have confused the staff though. The dog was meant to cost something about 29,40 CHF  or so and as I didn’t exchange money (of course not *lol*) I only had YEN and EUR with me, so i asked to pay in EUR. They said it would be 29 EUR. I handed over 50 EUR and after a bit of confusion at the counter (new girl being trained) I received 31 EUR and 0,60 CHF ….. maths?!
I figured something was off when I was already at my gate – until then I was also confused about that weird exchange discussion the two ladies (trainee and trainer) had about exchange rates at their shop. Well….it was a cheap dog or more like expensive-cheap-cute-little-awesome-doggy! Resist these eyes!!!!!!!

Impossible !!!

My flight started delayed yet again due to luggage loading problems. Weeeeeh~ again it sounded like they threw the luggage around x_x
We got crackers and a drink including the menu for the flight. I had the rice dish with shitake and chicken which came with a carrot cake and a ham salad – that was meant to be lunch…. at like 3PM European time 😀
They gave out another round of drinks later that evening and I had Vanilla Icecream at 1AM location time (somewhere over Russia) *__*
I couldn’t really sleep, neither watch movies as the system’s seemed to be broken down for one side so I had sound only for either left or right – really awkward.
I watched 2 movies until I was afraid to get a headache when watching further movies: Insurgent and Alice through the Looking Glass. I tried to watch Warcraft but for some reason the sound was 3 seconds late so I quit watching after 5 minutes >.>
I filled out my required data for the visa – as I didn’t had a pen I got one from the staff – hooray, for free.
I had a beautiful view of the sunrise (picture in this link)
Breakfast was served 2 hours before landing – I didn’t eat the Wiener or Strawberry yoghurt <.< I only had the fruits salad, egg omelette and tomato sauce plus bread roll with marmelade. I took the orange juice that was meant to be for breakfast to drink later 😀
Shortly before the landing process I got another chocolate ❤

After landing I took my first toilet break in 12 hours (not that I do like the plane toilets but I didn’t feel like going). I was the first one in there, when I got out it was super crowded. Some other flights landed close to our time so there was also a huge crowd at immigration. I waited about 50 minutes to complete immigration (also because some people can’t read and don’t fill out the back sides of immigration papers -_- which takes time at the counter as they aren’t send away but delay everyone else) and feared my luggage would be gone x_x
The luggage track was already stopped when I arrived T__T but after asking 2 different staff members the 3rd one said it is there – a (4th) staff member was watching it the whole time.
While waiting in line for customs they let a dog sniff my stuff – I still love that Japan uses Labradors and Retrievers for that job – they’re so cute ❤
This time my luggage wasn’t checked (I think there were also so many people in line they only did random checks anyways – they did check the luggage of a guy a few people in front of me) so I could pass the check after handing in the necessary paper.
Now I was on search where and how to buy train tickets to Kyoto… so I went to the Tourist Information desk and was sent to the train ticket counter at the train tracks. I asked at the counter before going down there and was told i only could get one way as they can’t sell anything that’s later than 2 days from purchase date. So I took one-way Narita to Kyoto – which totalled to 16690 Yen as I bought additional Seat reservation for 2 trains as this costs extra and is measured by distance (Narita-Shinagawa, Shinagawa-Kyoto).
I had 15 minutes until my train would arrive so I went downstairs to my track and passed the counter where I originally was sent to buy the ticket and was glad i didn’t go there – so many people would have meant waiting for at least another hour! Lucky!
While waiting for the train I drank my orange juice I snuck at breakfast 😀 I also found out where to check for train numbers (I never drove by train in Tokyo 2 years ago so I didn’tknow) – you can find this at the board which says where the train goes 😀

My train drives weren’t spectacular. The first drive was about 1,5 hours (with Narita Express), the second about 2 hours. The seats aren’t really comfortable but still I managed to fall asleep on the 2nd train drive although I had muscle contractions that woke me up all the time -_- just means by body was really tired of sitting without any real rest.

At Kyoto station I was asking for directions to theTourist Information and asked there how and where to buy a ticket to get to my hotel’s station. I was sent to the JR booth and bought my fare – luckily that train was running 5 minutes later so I didn’t need to wait additional 20 minutes for the next one.
6 stations and ~30 minutes later I arrived at the station and got off. My hotel is really close to the station (not even 300 meters) and I have a Family Mart 2 doors away.
I checked in and got a water bottle for free. I went to my room, took out the gifts I brought with me, brought them downstairs to the reception and went to buy some food and drinks as I wouldn’t leave anymore anyways. I ate something and soaked myself in the bathtub before heading to lie down at the bed while watching TV (well, more like sleep than watching TV) – after falling asleep randomly between 3PM and 7PM I was wide awake until 1AM 😀 (I blame the Milk Tea! But I love it!!!!
And the temperature – I can regulate that one through a devise… it was set to 26 degrees when I got into the room >.> temperature of death after a long travel… I put it down to 20 where it stayed ever since.)

It was a long long day…. a bit more than 24 hours x.x

Pokémon GO: 10th Week

I finally hit level 27 today 😀 (after quitting the game with 188222/200000 EXP yesterday night) and hatched my very first Scyther yay~

And as there was a new update yesterday, some changes occured:

Eggs are differently colored and Pokémon got additional pictures (type) – as seen below.


Sorry, I don’t have much to say this week (I’m really stressed at work and private due to my upcoming holiday the day after tomorrow, so sorry)
except I should never battle when I don’t have enough Revives…. I had 19 monsters stocked up for reviving T_T and PokéStops hated me T_T
I finally recovered all of them by today when I went to the city centre of Haarlem (Netherlands) for 20 minutes and just nuked the crap out of the Stops for Revives or my level up (as it gave me 10 revives x.x but hooray for reviving all monsters before that actually happened)

There seems to be an event starting on 26th of October and ends on 1st of November that will allow you to catch more Ghost type Pokémon (due to Halloween). Patch Notes.

So sorry for closing this week’s status so fast but I really don’t have time to keep on writing much these days. Maybe that will calm down in my holidays, although I don’t know if I’ll be able to play the game much because….well….holidays~ ❤
