Finally, I’ve had a chance to settle into my new/old city. I love being here. It is relaxing. I feel relaxed. Something I haven’t done for some time.
It is a quiet place, much quieter than where I had been. Sundays, like today, are particularly quiet. I get bored easily, so needless to say, days like today are a struggle.
Saturdays are a different story. I’ve spent the last three Saturdays going back and forth to Seoul or Suwon. I really enjoy the travel. I don’t get bored when I’m moving.
I don’t know why but I never bore of transportation. Never bore of moving. Never bore of platforms and trains.
I think the travel is something that I enjoy. I’ve never enjoyed planes or car trips. Something about trains though. It is like for those 2 hours I have nothing to do but look out the window.
I rarely sleep on trains. I feel like I’ll miss something. I have always envied people that have done the trans-Siberian railroad trip. I feel like it would be a great experience. Maybe someday.
Even being in Seoul, feels different now that I don’t live close. Being there all the time it was easy to get caught up in the bustle. It became easy to put my head down and not pay attention.
Coming back into the city now from afar, it feels like seeing it again through new eyes. Feels like it used to feel before I lived there.
Also, like before, there invariably comes the let down of leaving. I love where I am not because of what it is, but more because of the feeling it allots me. Being here, my weeks have arcs.
And here I am, on another Sunday sitting at home without much to do. Not something I’m used to. Not a bad thing, gives me a chance to catch up on my blog.
Speaking of which, I haven’t blogged much in the past six or so months. Haven’t had much to say or anything I felt was worth writing about. I suppose this post isn’t much different. Not much of anything. I will say, I think Sunday will be a day I try to blog most weeks.
No, not a promise. More like a probability. Nothing else to do on Sundays.
Maybe I’ll have something more interesting to say next time. I’m thinking of doing a series on the train. We will see.
