I came back to give this blog some much-needed lovin’ by way of procrastination, and found this little gem tucked away into my drafts folder. I left Austria under strange and slightly dramatic circumstances and subsequently forgot to post this. It’s a little emotional and more than a little evasive – but I like things to be neat and tidy, so here is my final Austria post (over 6 months after I actually returned from Austria).
Hello and welcome back to the second (very late) instalment of Annie’s Shenanigans in Dublin. A big thanks to everyone who has said they liked the last blog post but I’m a little concerned at your total lack of concern for my wellbeing. It wasn’t supposed to be funny guys; my actual life was in actual danger.
It was time. After an uneventful month in sleepy ol’ Austria, it was time to take the first step back on my way back to the UK and to normality: to Ireland.
It’s been about three weeks since I wrote a blog post about Austria. The happenings of those three weeks can be summed up in a few brief sentences: I went for lunch with one of the Spanish teachers and Marina. The school put on a play called ‘Schwein Gehabt’ and the students baked pastries in the shape of pigs to celebrate. One of the students I’ve been doing extra lessons with won a national English competition because he’s better at English than I am. Willig finally showed me his pigeons. Eva constantly brings me food and often invites me down for lunch, where I nearly always end up getting a little bit tipsy in the middle of the day because Willig is a terrible influence.
SPOILER ALERT: Nothing interesting is happening.
