It is a time of firsts and last Tuesday became the day of my first ever trip on a London Bus. It does feel a bit silly to me that I have been to London 4 times without never actually being on one of the famous red busses that these streets are filled with.

Me and some of my new friends from uni were in luck. We got the front seat at the top with the best view of Camden High Street as we rode down it towards the Stables Market. The market was another first for me. It’s been one of those places I’ve been planning to see on all of my previous trips but then never got around to. read more

I’m here!! I’m in London!

Okay, I have actually been here for over a week now but I have simply been so busy that I haven’t even managed to blog about it, which is terrible for the blog but good for me.

The city itself feels different to me because I have to try to relate to it as my new home and can’t just see it as a temporary place of fun. If I have to be honest the first two days here were scary and made me long for my own bed and my old bedroom. I felt lost and alone. But ever since I met some of the people who live in the same House and since I started my induction at the university, I haven’t had time to feel lonely or scared. read more

To do list

Ever since I got my acceptance letter from UCL it has felt like someone has pressed the fast forward button on my life. Time is flying by in super speed and I can’t really get my head around the fact that I’m leaving in just one week!! Even after all these months of waiting, I can’t help thinking: is it really time already?
My Summer has been very busy and not very relaxing. 3,5 months of constant exams and papers to write (note: no holiday this year!) but now I am finally free and can begin the preparations that I need to get through before I’m ready to move. For weeks I have had a massive, constantly  growing and somewhat neglected To Do List lying on my desk but now I’m finally seeing it getting a little bit smaller every day. Some of the more important and exciting things on the list have been to: read more

Hi, I’m Lea!

I’m a 22 year old student from Denmark and absolutely terrible at writing biographies. I prefer sleeping in to getting an early start, I love Spring, cherry blossoms, the colour blue and I’ve never been a big fan of breakfast. read more
