Yesterday my sister finally arrived in Edinburgh, which was very exciting after not seeing anyone I knew before moving for four months. We have a week of doing touristy things ahead before we both go home for Christmas. We started the day at Edinburgh Castle, which wasn't too busy for a sunny Saturday morning, and continued walking through old town showing her the must see Harry Potter sights in town, and ended our trip at The National Museum of Scotland.

I går kom endelig Malin på besøk, som var ekstra stas siden jeg ikke har sett noen jeg kjente før jeg flyttet på fire måneder. Nå har vi en uke fylt av turist aktiviteter før vi omsider setter snuten hjem til Norge for å feire jul. Vi startet dagen på Edinburgh Slott, som hadde overraskende lite turister til å være en solfylt lørdags morgen. Etter slottet gikk vi videre igjennom Old Town for å se de forskjellige Harry Potter kjennemerkene, vi endte turen på The National Museum of Scotland.

On Saturday I went out for dinner with two of my flatmates, we didn't have a plan where to eat but after walking for five minutes we stumbled upon Hay Sushi right next to Hay Market here in Edinburgh. I hadn't had proper sushi for ages and this was delicious. One of the girls hadn't tried Sushi before so we decided to share everything and ordered dumplings and octopus balls for starters (the octopus balls were surprisingly yummy, and something i'd never thought I'd try). As a main two of us ordered sushi plates, mine was filled with salmon. The staff and atmosphere there delightful.

Afterwards we were all full and happy, continuing our night towards the Princes Gardens which had been turned into The Christmas Market.

// På lørdag dro to av de jeg bor med ut for å spise sammen, vi hadde egentlig tenkt å spise på julemarkedet men etter 5 minutters gange snublet vi over Hay Sushi, som ligger ved Hay Marked i Edinburgh. Jeg har ikke spist så god sushi på lenge! En av jentene hadde aldri smakt så vi bestemte oss for å kjøpe litt av hvert. Til og starte med valgte vi Dumplings & Blekksprut baller, som var overraskende gode! Videre kjøpte vi forskjellige sushi plater, min bestod av laks.

Etter middagen gikk vi videre til Princess Gardens og Julemarkedet.

I can't believe we're already in October, I also can't believe I've lived in the capital city of Scotland for a month! It feels like I got off the plane from Norway just yesterday, but at the same time it feels like i've been living in this city and know the people here for ages.

"If London was an alien city, Edinburgh was another planet" 

// Tenk at vi er i oktober allerede, og tenk at jeg har bodd i skottlands hovedstad i litt over en måned! Det kjennes ut som at det var i går jeg gikk av flyet fra Norge, men det kjennes samtidig ut som at jeg har bodd i byen og kjent folkene i evigheter.

I've finally (kind of) gotten around to having some sort of daily routines, and both university and the gym feels surprisingly easy to go to at the moment, which is why i'm gonna try to add this blogging thing to the mix. Assignment deadlines are fast approaching, but hey isn't stress the point of doing a masters?


//Jeg har omsider fått en slags rutine i hverdagen, og det er overraskende lett å komme seg til både universitetet og på trening (!!), og om er litt av grunnen til at jeg vil hive bloggingen in i miksen. Selv om også innleverings datoene på forskjellige oppgaver kommer snikende, men stress er vel en del av mastergraden right?

Jeg klarte det! I Juli graduated jeg fra Kingston University etter tre fantastiske år med A i standpunkt, jeg er så stolt! 🎓 I Sommer har jeg jobbet i ny sommerjobb på det lokale kystmuseet for å spare opp litt cash før mitt neste eventyr som starter i September. Jeg flytter nemlig tilbake til Storbritannia igjen, fordi jeg har kommet inn på mastergrad i Markedsføring med Festival og Event Ledelse i Edinburg, Skottland!

I made it!! In July I graduated from Kingston University after three fantastic years with a First Class Degree in BSc (Hons) Marketing Communication & Advertising, I'm so proud!🎓 This summer I've been working in my new job as a hostess at the coastal museum in town, trying to save up some money before my next adventure starts in September. In September i'm moving abroad again, and back to the UK, as I've got accepted to do my postgraduate study of Marketing with Festival & Event Management in Edinburgh, Skottland!

I hope to be inspired to blogg regularly again about my everyday life and new experiences in Edinburgh from early September, so stay tuned. ✨

Det er Onsdag, for meg betyr det at helgen starter! For å markere helgestart hvorfor ikke komme med et lite London Tips?!

BallieBallerson

For rundt en månedsiden, i Januar ble jeg invitert til BallieBallerson med de jeg bor med, og jeg er ikke en til å si nei til gøy! BallieBallerson er en bar som har ballbinge for voksne nede i kjelleren, og i baren serverer de drinker som smaker barndomsminner. Det er latterlig hvor gøy alle har det mens man bokstavelig talt drukner i baller.

For å komme inn må du ha bestilt billetter på forhånd, og baren ligger i Dalston, og nærmeste stopp er Dalston Kingsland. Akkurat nå har de blanke baller i ballbingen og under på dansegulvet er det led lys som gjør at det blir enda kulere enn det allerede er. Perfekt for vennekvelder, jobb-drinker og generelt folk som vil leke med baller😏.

It's Wednesday, for me that means my weekend starts! Since it's Wednesday and I'm not doing anything exciting at the moment, why not give a cheeky London tips?!

A few weeks ago in January I got invited to go to BallieBallerson with my flatmates, and I'm not one to say no to fun! BallieBallerson is a ball pit for grown ups, and even has a bar serving cocktails tasting like your childhood memories. It's ridiculous how fun everyone was having while literally drowning in balls. To get entrance you need to order your tickets online and the ballpit is located in Dalston, N16 8AD, and the nearest stop being Dalston Kingsland. ATM they have clear balls on a dancefloor filled with led lights, making it more awesome than the concept already is.

I feel like I say this every year, but seriously, January and February have flown by! The last months have consisted of intense weekly library sessions, two assignments, two group presentations, a trip to Wales, a week with fever and a cold, ten days in Norway, a lovely weekend in Trondheim and a relaxing week back home at my parents'. Tomorrow i'm flying back to the hectic city life in London, which i honestly wish i didn't have to.
