Sunday Morning

I’m just popping by to say a quick hello before I leave to spend the day at some friends house. It’s a beautiful morning in Olso today, I can actually see the sun! That doesn’t happen too often this summer. But still, I’m not complaining, because I just received the books from my entire autumn reading list for english literature. I’ll most likely spend the rest of the summer vacation buried in books such s Peter and Wendy, The Chronicles of Narnia and Treasure Island. I’m so exited to get started! I guess there is no doubt that I chose the right subject to study when I literally  can’t wait to embark upon the 25 novels I have to read before the semester starts…

Happy sunday everyone, have a good one.

Place de L’etang

Greetings from Cucuron, a small countryside village in Provence. We are spending the days eating amazing french food, drinking whine, sunbathing, shopping at the local markets, swimming and discovering the charming little villages around the south of France. Down the street from our house is the charming Place de L’etang. Beautiful!

6 Things That Make Me Smile

1. My sister’s paintings 

For as long as I can remember, my 12 year old little sister has been either painting, drawing or sketching. She is definitely the artist in the family, and I get so happy every time she shows me something new. She painted this picture a couple of days ago, and I though I would share it with you.

2. Street Musicians

In my opinion, street musician can change the entire atmosphere of a city. I love how a talented street musician can complete the feel of a certain street or square. And the variety is incredible, everything from classical music to blues and jazz. You never know what you’ll get! The amount of talented musicians out there never fails to impress me.

3. Stained Glass Windows 

It should be mentioned that I love the atmosphere and calmness of especially catholic churches. The stained glass windows, and how the sunshine looks when coming in through them is incredibly beautiful and serene. It reminds me of choir and sunday school from when I was little 🙂

4. The Sunset

My house in Norway has one of the most beautiful views imaginable, doesn’t it?

5. Beautiful Gardens

A  lush green lung in an otherwise busy city is in my opinion completely irreplaceable. Having a place to explore, socialize and just relax in beautiful surroundings is a wonderful thing. This picture is from Hyde Park, a place where there is always something left to discover! My university is fairly close to Richmond Park, which is also beautiful!

6. Vacation Planning

I’m currently planning a vacation to Barcelona with a friend of mine. Several things are on the to-do list, including La Sagrada Familia, La Rambla and the magic fountain of Montjuic. Suggestions for tourist attractions are welcome! I love the feeling of having something to look forward to 🙂
