So this is it!

Tomorrow afternoon my family will take me to Suwalki. It`s 5 and half hours driving from Riga and about 380 km through Bauska, Panevezis, passing Kaunas, Marijampole.

The train from Suwalki to Katowice costs around 21 USD. It`s about 640 km and 10 hours going by train. Polish train timetable here. The train leaves at 20:48 local time (GMT +1) So i have to calculate exact time and time reserves. And here it is, the most difficult and popular travel question. Do I have add 1 hour if i`m heading from west to east, or subtract it. In this case I`ll try to think it in Polish time zone. In Poland - 20:00, in Latvia - 21:00. I have the train in 21:48 Latvian time, so i have one more hour and I could leave Latvia at around 15:30

From Katowice (early saturday morning) I`ll heading to south-west, to Brno through Ostrava, then to northwest, to Praha. I`m not sure which way should be better going to Praha, but it seems like motorway or highway, so I`ll use petrol station.  Google maps said that i should be there in 5-6 hours.

Hope to be in Praha in the mid of saturday. I should spend night there... And the next is my goal - Regensburg. About 3 hours, 250 km from Praha.

Meet me in the sunday afternoon somewhere in Regensburg (?)


The road is calling me.

After week i will leave home for another week.

I`m going to pretend a scientist here. "Modelling of RGB colour contribution to visual acuity in conditions of fog evoked decrease of luminance and contrast" is that headline. But this isn`t a story i want to express.

But the way, how I`m going to get to the conference is hitchhiking.

(this was in 2007` when i was heading to Budapest, Hungary)


some articles




no money, no worries

I spent my last money for school and airplane tickets

Yeah, and i feel soooo gorgeous! What am I now? Am I bum or something else? Wiki gives some answer:

"A hobo is a migratory worker or homeless vagabond, often penniless. The term originated in the western—probably northwestern—United States during the last decade of the 19th century. Unlike tramps, who worked only they were forced to, and bums, who didn't work at all, hobos were workers who wandered"

This is nice. I have nothing against work. but if it`s going to be a routine, no thanks. So, let`s be a hobo.


Prayer repetitions

I always are wondering why catholics are repeating some prayers like Hail Mary and others. And some days ago i remember Latin quatation "Repetitio est mater studiorum" which in English means "Repeating is the mother of knowledge". I think this is historical priority thinking about given question/problem. Another thought -  repeating leads to the meditation. But does meditation is connected to knowledge?

Open question remains.

Interesting yahoo answer.
