My Five Favourite Films

Hi!

As I have said many times before; lists are my thing. So today I thought I could share my five favourite films with you. I will not tell you about the plot of any of these films, but I will insert the trailer so watch that if any of these makes you curious! These are in random order, since I could not decide which one I like the most.

1. Inception
This is a film that really fascinates, and confuses, me. The plot is literally going to mess with your head. It is one of those films that stick with you after you have watched it. I do not want to spoil the film, so I will show you the trailer instead of talking to much about it.

2. Interstellar
One thing that scares me when thinking to hard and to much of it is space. It is so massive and we are such a small part of it. This film definitely gets you thinking about that. Christopher Nolan was the director of this film (he also directed Inception), and he has a tendency to make intense films like this. I have not watched this since it was in theaters in the fall of 2014, so I will definitely watch this again very soon!

3. Spotlight
Spotlight is my newest addition to the list, I saw it in the theaters a couple of weeks ago. What fascinates me most about this film is that it is based on a real story. And that story freaks me out a bit. This might just be me being a little ignorant, but I did not know the issue was as big as it is. And to see this on screen is a wake-up call. This is one you all should see if you have not gotten around to it yet.

4. The Day After Tomorrow
This is the kind of movie you never forget watching. I have only watched it a couple of times many years ago, but I still remember the movie and the impression it made on me. Even though I have not watched this many times, it is still one of my favourite films. It is, yet again, one of those that gets you thinking about the world we live in.

5. The Harry Potter films
This is more of a nostalgic or sentimental choice. I grew up watching these films, and it had to be mentioned. I am a sucker for all of the Harry Potter films. I have watched them all multiple times, and I never seem to get sick of them. I think it is because of the feelings and memories that are attached to these films. If you have 17 minutes and 47 seconds to spare, here is the trailer:


Writing this made me realize one thing, and that is that I need to start watching more movies again as soon as possible!

Throwback … Monday?

Hi,

I have a little throwback for you guys this Monday. Unfortunately I cannot use the catchy phrases ‘Throwback Thursday’ or ‘Flashback Friday’. I do think it is a shame that Monday does not have its own catchy phrase… But enough about that!

I wanted to show you guys a nice trip I have walked a few times this fall. I actually used it to show a visitor I had some of the most famous sights in London. The thing about this little route is that you see many sights while not using a lot of time. The times I have walked this route I have used about one hour to one hour and a half.

Walk the one that takes 51 minutes to walk according to Google Maps, you will see the most (at least from my experience) if you walk that route. Another recommendation is to walk across the Millenium Footbridge, and cross the river again over the Waterloo Bridge. I, personally, think that this is the route where the views are the best. But do feel free to walk wherever you want, there are a lot of beautiful sights to see along the Thames river wherever you choose to walk.

Hi there

Hi,

It has been a very long time since we last ‘spoke’. I never ment for the break to be this long, throughout the summer holidays my intention was to start blogging again in October. But since this blog is for one of my modules at university I wanted to know what our brief was for this year before I did anything with the blog. I only found out this years brief today, so that is why the break has been so long. I am sorry about that! But I am back for a little while, so enjoy it while you can! I have pictures and experiences I want to share, so there are a few posts coming up.

Holland Park and Kyoto Garden

Hi!

Before I left London for the summer I had to see Holland Park and Kyoto Garden, and I finally had time to do that earlier this week. This is where Holland Park and Kyoto Garden is: (zoom out if you need a better view)

This park has to be one of my favourites, it is a shame it is so far away from where I live. I love how the dogs run around and enjoy life. They even play with each other if they feel like it. Seeing this made me miss Casper even more. I am so glad that it is not too many days left before I see him again! Anyways, on to the pictures:

Traveling 

Hi!

I can now officially say that I am very tired of travelling between London and Lillehammer. Luckily for me, this is the last time I do it for almost four months.

I am now on the train, and I have about 50 minutes left before I am home. This has been a sad and stressful day, I wish traveling was more fun! It started out with saying goodbye to Stine and Kristina around 11am, which was sad. It feels so weird that I am not going to see them almost every day anymore…

I am quite certain that none of you are interested in hearing about my entire day of traveling, so I will spare you all. Let’s just say that my plane ended up taking off 50 minutes later than scheduled, and I had to run like crazy with a 14 kg bag on my back and a 22 kg heavy suitcase to try to get on my train. I made it, which meant that I did not have to wait at the airport for another hour. That made my day a 1000 times better 😀

This post is not completely pointless, I do have some pictures to show you! I had a seat by the window, and the view was quite good today.

Now that I have written this post it is only 20 minutes left before I arrive in Lillehammer, Finally!

Pt. 2

Hi!

My last post ended with a promise of continuing it, so here it is.

After walking over Tower Bridge we discovered what I now think is one of my favourite areas in London.

It amazes me how it can be so quiet and peaceful in the middle of such a big city. It felt like we were by the sea, and it was lovely. (I thought I took pictures of the dock itself, but I cannot find any… Sorry about that!)

We continued walking to the nearest tubestop where we took the tube to Little Venice (tubestop: Warwick Avenue). Our plan was to walk a part of the Jubilee Greeenway.

We ended up cutting the route short. Stine has never been to Primrose Hill, so we ended the route there instead. I have taken so many pictures in Primrose Hill before, so I did not take any this time. I just enjoyed the view.

My Saturday

Hi!

Today Stine and I decided to do go somewhere we have not yet been in London. We do not have much time left here, so we figured this could be a nice way to spend my last weekend here. We stared with taking the tube to London Bridge to go to Borough Market. Stine and I have both been dying to go to this market for ages, so it was about time we visited this place.

Borough market did not disappoint. It was filled with good food. We tasted a delicious mushroom patè, and the brownies we tasted must have been one of the best I have tasted ever! And do not get me started on the White Sangria… My moth is starting to water just writing about it! After a few hours with wandering around in the market we decided to walk towards Tower Bridge, and walk over it.

We continued our walk on the other side of Tower Bridge,  but I will show the rest of the pictures tomorrow. Now I desperately need to wash clothes. That is how exciting my life is on a weekend haha
