Day 28, most embarrassing moment, 30 day blog challenge
Most embarrassing moment!
Well, there has been a few!!!!
Okay I need to take you on a little trip to an incredibly beautiful city Krakow. We had arrived and spent two days wondering the city. Heaven.
We went to lunch and had steak I think. All the food in Poland was exceptional. We had a few vodkas. Trying out the homemade flavours. Then we went to the market and tried the mulled wine. Also yummy.
Then we went to Krakows oldest vodka bar. We did a few rounds pretty sure we had 10 shots on the table at one point. This place was cool and tiny it had 2 tables inside. A cute little bar and then to get to the toilet you had to climb up ladder type stairs to get to the top.
I was tipsy when I left
Then we went to another bar. Again we had to climp up ladders to get to our seat. Gavin asked me to get a round in.
I was drunk.
Too drunk, I needed air.
Only I didn’t go back to the bar afterwards. Instead I went back to the market place. Crawled under a stall and asked the Polish man to show me how to make a nail.
Forge a nail!
Yes this drunken Brit talked the old polish man into forging a nail. I was dressed in my fancy green skirt. Unfortunately I still had Gavins wallet on me which I promptly lost.
This is the bit I don’t remember.
Getting home. Gavin was out looking for me and when he had searched everywhere he decided to head home. I also had the key to the apartment.
Gav found me, singing to myself outside of the apartment trying to get in. He said that when he asked me where I had been I just smiled and said I made a nail. Then we walked up all those stairs and I passed out.
So I woke the next day feeling pretty okay considering I had drunk a lot of vodka. But then I had had over ten hours to sleep it off.
What happened next is what was embarrassing firstly I couldn’t really remember what had happened except that I made a nail, but secondly Gavin suggested that I had stolen a nail from one of the many crucifixion statues.
I had no idea and I was horrified.
We also had no money except a few euros and technology.
It turned out I did make the nail. I remember clearly chatting away to that man and his whole family. Thinking of it now is horrifies me.
Gavin was amazing. He didn’t yell but he did make me promise never to wander of ever again.
He still doesn’t let me take his wallet in case I don’t come back. So this is the nail.
It’s a beauty.
The irony is that we traveled hand luggage only. So we had to leave the nail there!
It was a very expensive nail!
And maybe my most embarrassing moment!
I blame the good vodka.
