This Feels More An Exchange…

Finally the Volksplein Running Club has been established as Lukas and myself went for a 7km jog on Friday morning, reminding myself just how out of shape I have become. Despite the easy going pace I still couldn’t avoid getting a dreaded stitch which tormented me for the majority of the distance. “I feel that a stitch is the sign of a good abs workout!” proclaimed Doug – personally I disagree.

Friday night was the ESN Birthday party and required the guests, for the first time since arriving here, to actually care about their appearance and dress “smartly”. I knew that my braces and shirt would come in handy at some point whilst here, although a slight tingle of regret crept upon me as I realised maybe bringing my kilt would have been worth the baggage and travel hassle. Under no circumstances did this ruin my night however and we travelled to a new venue (for us at least) to enjoy some fantastic music and complementary glass of champagne.

Back in action after almost 7 years out the game, Andy Murray would have been quivering in his overpriced Adidas trainers as I graced the all-weather courts of the guesthouse gardens for a couple of rallies with Bjorn. Finally, a reduced work load and some time to really enjoy myself in Maastricht away from the books or the pub. Playing straight after an all-you-can-eat sushi lunch however must have hampered my performance however as the court appeared smaller and the net higher than ever before. A lot more practice is needed if I am to beat Jaicy next week and claim the two cases of beer we have wagered.

This has been a relaxing weekend and was topped off by a cinema trip to see The Avengers with Doug, Henry & Jeppi – quite possibly one of the best action movies ever to grace the silver screen. Iron Man, aliens, demi-gods, highly-skilled assassins, the Hulk, explosions, Scarlett Johansson and all in 3D! It really is a film I cannot recommend enough. Despite having seen any of the previous films regarding the central characters I would now consider myself a fan and am definitely going to go back and watch the rest of the films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
