Daily Journal: Tuesday, 7 March 2017

I’m really getting lazy during my last few days in Budapest, before leaving for my mini “vacation”. I admit to getting up late, not going to the gym or visiting more of the city. Though for a retired person, think I’m doing okay.

Had a technical issue with my Chromebook this morning. Couldn’t load a webpage, or when I was able to, it was very slow. My phone and iPad worked okay on the flat’s WiFi connection, but not the Chromebook. So it wasn’t the WiFi. The only solution that I could find was to reset the device and start over, which I did. At first it didn’t seem that it solved the problem, but after 10 minutes or so, I could surf the Internet again. Thought I might have to buy another Chromebook. Was a little disappointed that I didn’t have to. Would be fun to have new technology.

I decided to do some shopping. Not that I really needed anything, but wanted to visit this mall that I had heard is a little bigger than the West End Mall. The Arena Mall is located near the Budapest-Keleti Railway Terminal, the main international and inter-city railway terminal in Budapest. (See below.)

The Arena Mall is very large and has the top stores in the city that carry the major international brand names. It was like shopping in the U.S. While there, I decided it was time to buy some new underwear. I had success at the first store that I visited. They had all all of the major brands and I found some that I liked. I guess I’ll know for sure once I wear them.

Got back home and took a nap. Shopping can be very tiring. Then made a simple dinner. Saw a YouTube about the making of Star Trek, The Movie (1979) so I knew that that would be the feature movie that I’d watch tonight on Netflix. Watching this movie was like visiting an old friend.

Tomorrow I’m back at the gym again. Only have a few more days for a full workout. I’ll join a gym again once I return to Budapest in April. Will be nice to have a few weeks off though. Just being honest…

  1. Retail Therapy! I get it.
    The weather has been so terrible back here in Portland – I think we could be sending you “don’t workout vibes”.
