Went for a walk with my camera in the nice Edinburgh weather yesterday. Got pretty surprised when I saw that spring was already in full motion, in February! Not sure what to think about that, but at least there was a lot of nice things to take pictures of.

Was stretching my long, awkward body over a fence to get a decent picture of some pretty snow bells in someones garden, when the owner, a sweet old lady opened her door and was like “Sweetheart, just come into the garden and take all the photos you want!”. She was so adorable! After getting a couple of good photos she even invited me to “just sit in her garden whenever I want, if I need somewhere to relax and want to enjoy some pretty flowers”. Almost picked her up (she was pretty short, but then again, compared to me, everyone is) and hugged her flat as a pancake! Made. My. Day. Thinking of printing one of the pictures and framing it to her as a gift.

Just turned 23 (5th of feb).
Another year older, definitely not a year wiser.

Some more photos from The Botanic Garden in Edinburgh. They have these storytellers telling different stories in context with the different areas. Would recommend this to everyone! Loved the colours on her outfit, so asked kindly to take a photo of her, which she said yes to (: Pretty!

Such is the passage of time, too fast to fold

Been back in Edinburgh for a week now, time flies by so fast! Already got so much work to do, so this semester will be a stressful one, I fear. Finally doing some more animal related courses, though, so it’s very interesting!

 Happy New year everyone!

Still no snow here in Norway, only rain, rain and rain (much like Edinburgh!). My dad will be back from the North Sea in a couple of days, which means there will be more time to go hiking and take photos 🙂 Can’t wait!

Merry Christmas everyone! 

So, since the weather here in Norway is anything but white and beautiful, I went ahead and dug up some photos I took earlier this semester. These are from my trip to the botanic garden in Edinburgh, which was such an amazing place! I loved it so much that I’ve been back a couple of times already to take some more photos, and in the end ended up with a couple of hundred pictures. So here’s just a few that I’ve had time to edit so far. I hope people don’t find flowers too boring, haha. Hopefully there will be some snow before I head back to Edinburgh again, if it is, then I’ll definitely post some pictures here!

Oh, how beautiful the Norwegian winter is…. every year but this year.

All the photos are from previous years, because this year there’s only rain, rain, rain and wind. So much for the Christmas spirit and making snowmen and snow angels.

Ma belle amie, Claire

Here is the rest of the photos I took when Camille and Claire came to visit me in Edinburgh. This is beautiful Claire!
I must say I was really impressed with both of them, smiling and wearing only thin dresses in the freezing cold weather with winds and 6*C, bad ass french girls.

Only one exam left now and then it’s back to Norway, woooo!

Here are some of the photos I took when my beautiful friends from France were in Edinburgh earlier this month, starting with Camille! Don’t know anyone else with such amazing curls, just look at that hair! I will upload another post with pictures of Claire when I get back to Norway after exams, so stay tuned (:
