So it turns out my long-term girlfriend is a spy.
I probably should have seen the signs earlier (I guess this finally explains all the wigs and false moustaches), but last night she told me on the phone. I feel a bit annoyed, but at the same time I can understand why she couldn't tell me earlier.
Anyway, I went over to her place this morning, she wasn't there and all her stuff was gone.
But here's the weird part, she smashed up the tiles in the bathroom and painted them different colours:
Next to the tiles was this note:
Hey, Sorry I couldn't hang around to welcome you, I had some things to take care of ... far away from here. I've left you instruction saying where to meet, when I'll be there, and what we'll do after you get here.
See you soon. XOXO
PS: When you come can you please bring Baking Soda, Toothpaste and Bleach? Thanks so much.
That was it, so I still have no idea where I'm supposed to go, or when. And I have no idea about what will we do there?
The image contains 3 different messages, of length 4, 12 and 3.
The note postscript is a hint towards the first message, of length 4. Using the Image Description might be easier for this first step. Uncovering that message will help with the second message.
For the first phase, you can ignore the glyphs in the graphic, the colours hide the first cipher. Phew!
