Ever since I was a little girl, a spring time tradition has been to pick a huge bouquet of Lily of the Valley and give to my grandmother (and usually also one for mum!). After she passed away, the tradition was still kept alive, and every year me and my dad go out together and pick the biggest bouquet possible and put it in a vase on her grave. This flower means a lot to me, it is one of my favourites. When I was 18 I got a  memorial tattoo for grandma of this flower, and whenever I see them or smell them, I think of all the nice memories I have of her.

A couple (a lot) of photos from my summer in Norway! It’s been such a nice summer with so many exciting happenings! Right now I’m just enjoying my last days in Norway, packing, voting, spending time with my family and getting everything sorted before going back to Edinburgh. At this moment I’m currently in a fancy hotel in Bergen with Elisabeth to see Kaizers Orchestra for the very last time.  It’s sad to know that this will be the last time I get to see them live, never thought a band could mean so much for me. My plan is to enjoy every second of this concert!

Not to long before I’m back in Edinburgh again as well, can’t wait to get settled in the new flat and get started with my new courses!

Lots and lots of blog post are queuing with tons of photos from my summer, so stay tuned!

I didn’t have time to take a lot of photos with my camera in April, since I spent almost every day at the library, but I did get a new phone and took a bunch of photos with that one! If you’d like to follow me on Instagram, click here or search for marie_viking!

Aurora – Last Breeze of Summer

The last bunch of photos taken this summer, thought it was about time to share them.

There is so much to do these days! School is hard, but I really, really enjoy it here. It is so nice to be able to make my own food whenever I want, and to sleep in a big, soft bed. I got the best flat mates I could ever wish for as well, so life is great!

I’m leaving with my sunshine this friday, for our three day-adventure with haggis adventure, the trip I wrote about here. Can’t wait! A whole weekend away from school work, with my sunshine and with so many opportunities to take some amazing photos! I really hope we get some sunny days, even though the weather forecast says it’s going to rain… But fingers crossed!

Aurora. Part two. In the flesh

Another part from the shoot with Aurora. This was such a fun and impulsive shoot, which seems to be the perfect way for us to take cool pictures. It’s always the impulsive shoots that turn out the best. And hey, don’t you just love her tattoos!

I will be moving to Edinburgh in just four days, which right now feels so unreal. Have to start that packing process soon, but I’m a bit confused about what to pack! What on earth should I pack when moving to another country? I tried to make a list, and so far it looks like this:

* Toothbrush

* Rain clothes

* Wool socks

* Camera and computer

What more do I need?

Photos of my good friend, Aurora.
Taken last summer (’11), at a perfect summer day.

I never felt like these pictures got the attention they deserved, so they are getting a second chance here!
I love using Aurora as a model, her face is almost like a little doll, so cute.
