My Weekend in London

Hello from a sunny Edinburgh!

It was almost a year ago since I moved to Edinburgh from London, and only now did I visit for the first time –  it had been way too long if you ask me! It was so nice to be back, and I instantly felt like home and as I hadn’t left at all. Must confess I have missed the London buzz!

A (nother) Year To Remember

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.

This is a map of the charity shops in Edinburgh, as you can see there are quite a few – way more than in Helsinki. Since I’ve been here I’ve visited several already, and must admit that I haven’t been able to resist buying a thing or two…But it’s ok since it is so cheap, right?! And the money goes to charity!
