Life in England: Alnwick Castle Daytrip

Good morning lovelies! I’ve been a busy bee these past few weeks with university assignments and a wonderful weekend in the North-East with Kjære and his fam. Oh yes, we were reunited after five and a half loooong weeks and I didn´t stop smiling once the entire weekend. Except the part were we had to say goodbye again, but as luck would have it our next stretch is only three weeks at which point I will be back in Stockholm! We’re kicking LDR ass! More on this in another post.

Now, to get to the point of this post, last weekend about 50 Erasmus Society members and committee members headed north from Newcastle to Alnwick Castle & Gardens. Alnwick is a real castle currently owned, run and periodically lived in by the Duke of Northumberland. The castle itself and the (frankly ginormous) castle grounds have been used as locations for Harry Potter, Downton Abbey and a number of other films and tv-shows. It´s truly beautiful and visiting Alnwick was a grand day out, as you can see by the vlog I made of the day 😉

Hope you’re having a great monday! Xxx

VIDEO: Scandinavian Food Haul

I´ve been ill with a chest infection for several weeks, popping antibiotics left and right, rubbing vaporub on myself as if it would make me turn my pumpkin illness infected self into a beautiful, healthy golden pumping carriage. It´s really early in the morning, I don´t know where I’m going with this. What I came here to say was – I ordered Norwegian Food! I made a video!

Scandikitchen.co.uk isn’t cheap but it’s a godsend for ill/homesick/food particular scandi expats in the UK. As you can see by the video I mostly ordered Norwegian things that I´ve particularly missed, as well as several cans of microwavable stews to help feed me when cooking was not an option. I could probably have managed two more months without Gløgg and Joikakaker, but when I’m ill I need comfort food. Online shopping therapy also works 😉

Happy Monday everyone! Xxx
