Solo Travel

It has been a long time since I have stayed or travelled alone. It is actually rare for G and I to be apart. Occasionally I will travel for work and recently I have always travelled with other co-workers so I'm really not alone.

This trip it has been different. I travelled alone to the Netherlands and have been staying by myself. It feels so strange.

Fortunately, Voorschoten is very peaceful and I feel very safe. But the first couple of nights, I had this strange sense of seeing things in the center hall way. I am not easily spooked so I couldn't figure it out. But being alone, the mind can come to strange conclusions. I almost thought maybe the apartment was haunted. I kept seeing fleeting lights in the corner of my eye.

I finally figured it out. There is a leaded frosted window in the stairwell that happens to be right at the floor level of the top of the stairs. It turns out that what I think are spirits moving happens to be lights from the neighbors and the outdoors.

Now if I had one of these to keep me company, it would be much better.
