Ear Plugs

overcast 19 °C

As most of you know I’m a night owl and go to bed quiet late and will wake up at the very last minute. With traveling and site seeing all day I’ve been getting up early to get the most out of the day so to get a good nights sleep has been important. In Bern the first few nights (weekday nights) I slept really well as the beds were comfortable and we didn’t get one snorer (I can usually tolerate a snore or two)...

...however at the weekend the city apparently comes alive about 23:00. The Hostel had a club underneath it, which during the week we didn’t hear once but this weekend all we could hear and feel was thump thump thump. This was probably due to it competing with Bern’s Number 1 radio station who were currently having a gig of local live acts in the street right outside our window! Even with the double glazed windows closed we could hear the music and all the words. As the night went on the music seemed to get louder slowing turning into a full on rave which ended about 4am. If it wasn’t for the fact that we had a very early train the next morning, we were tempted to go and join in. Instead it was time for the ear plugs to prove there worth and space in the backpacks, Nick has been wearing them the whole trip but I’m not a fan and always wake up to find them in the bed somewhere. I am now a convert, ear plugs work! or at least keep out some of the noise so you can get to sleep. From now on I have a pair by bed every night just in case.

Lesson Learnt!

I agree, but they don't keep all noise out. Should of got some from work before you went.
