Yesterday was such an amazing day. The weather was so nice with just the right temperature as well, in other words: a perfect go-for-a-walk-with-my-camera-day! Since I’m still at Pollock Halls I thought I’d check out the enormous chain of mountains that I look at every day from my room: Arthur’s seat. This is the remains of an extinct volcano, which is kind of cool.
This was such a nice walk, I enjoyed every second of it. It’s not a hard climb at all, the mountain itself is no more than 250 m in height, and there are so many paths to follow. But if you want to advance it a bit, you can always do what I did and walk everywhere else than where the paths went. It was really windy at the top, which made my self-portrait shoot a bit hard when I tried to use the timer. I looked like a crazy person running from the camera and over to the place where I put the focus. Almost tripped once, that gave me a near death-experience-feeling when looking down the steep hill.
It seems like autumn is finally arriving. I can’t wait to take this trip again when all the beautiful autumn colors starts to spark.

This is where I live! Baird House at Pollock Halls!
Everything is great! Freshers week is (finally) over. I feel too old for this. Partying seven days a week with next to no sleep what so ever, meeting a bunch of new people every day, new names, new places, new rules. I must say, I was a bit exhausted when the week was coming to an end.
Started my lectures on monday, and everything seems so… exciting! Can’t wait do dig down in my 1300-thick biology book! So far this is everything I hoped for, and even more. Hoping to get some time to talk to everyone back home this week, so people, log on to skype!
Oh, yeah, btw: I won a bunch of great stuff at the freshers auction, which I will tell you all about in another post.
Can say as much as this: a free trip costing over £230!
