3 Years Later…

Today it’s been exactly 3 years since I packed my bags and moved to London. 3 years in the UK! And how things have changed: I left Finland single and free, only to find myself pram-shopping in John Lewis in Edinburgh 3 years later…But what can I say? I’m grateful to myself for making that crazy decision to quit my Spanish studies at Uni and buy a one way ticket to London without having a job or a flat in sight. Had I not done that I wouldn’t be where I am today. Sometimes it pays off to take the windy road instead of the straight one 🙂

2 Years Together

Last Friday Matthew and I celebrated our 2-year anniversary. Who would’ve thought that that rainy Friday night in London’s Southwark would’ve resulted in the happiest two years of my life? (With many, many more happy years to come I hope!) Many a time I’ve thought about how lucky we were to meet in a city as big as London, and how many things could’ve gone wrong – resulting in us not meeting. Scary.

A (nother) Year To Remember

Winter Sunset in Edinburgh

Sunset in Edinburgh. I love the chimneys against the sky – you’ll find them on most houses here.

Awrite! (Scottish for ‘hi’)

As the Christmas holiday is becoming just a distant memory and everyday life taking over again it’s starting to sink in that we’ve entered year 2014. When thinking back about last year, I realise that, once again, it’s been a year of changes. I like change, which might be a reason I, since I turned 18, haven’t stayed in the same place, school or job for a long period of time. 2013 was no different.

Happy London Times

Hey folks!

When I first moved up to Edinburgh I really thought that it would be supereasy to just pop down to London for a weekend or so, but I soon realised that it is easier said than done. Train tickets are ridiculously expensive if you want to travel at a decent time (or any other time for that matter), and a 4,5-5 hour train-ride isn’t really my idea of a good time either. Flying is another possibility, but having done that it is almost even more of a hassle than taking the train.
