A walk through the British countryside.

In November my flatmate, Helen, from London took me and our other flatmate, Keziah, to her hometown near Middlesborough, in the North of England. There we walked to Roseberry Topping, a tall hill near Great Ayton. Fun fact, Great Ayton was the childhood home of Captain Cook, the first British guy to discover Australia.

Rooftop exploring in Stockholm, Sweden.

We had a quick stop in Stockholm, which I discovered in the short time I was there to be such a lovely city! I definitely want to go back. But instead of the usual city tour, we opted for the Stockholm Rooftop tour, where we climbed onto the roof of the Parliament Building at Gamla […]

Feed reindeer in Finland.

I only had limited time in Finland, and while I’m sure Helsinki is a beautiful city, sometimes you need to get out of the city! So we booked a day trip from Helsinki to the Nuuksio national park, where they have semi-domestic reindeer you can feed.

Learning German in Berlin

I moved to Berlin in April 2017, and I didn’t know any German except for how to say hello, please and thank you. I initially planned to do an intensive course for a month, three hours a day for four nights a week. But then I realised that I was moving to Berlin at the start of summer, and I didn’t want to spend four nights a week in a classroom (on top of working full-time), when I could be out enjoying everything that Berlin has to offer in the long summer evenings.

Cycling through the streets of Oslo, Norway.

I spent one day in Oslo, and I found I was able to see a lot in Oslo just in one day! It helped that it was a really sunny summer day and we were able to cycle around the city. We did a cycle tour with Biking Vikings, which took 3 hours. It was […]

A walking tour of Copenhagen.

I had the best time in Copenhagen, and absolutely fell in love with the pretty city in the weekend that I was there! I expected Copenhagen to be beautiful, but it exceeded my expectations. Copenhagen is a completely walkable city, but hiring a bike in Copenhagen would be an even better way to get around! I was able to see everything I wanted in my weekend in Copenhagen just by walking around.
