Swirls in the water

I haven’t taken any new pictures today, but I want to share some pictures of flows & swirls in the river water in Trondheim. I am quite satisfied with how these turned out. I loved standing there at the bridge that day and just look at the swirls forming, traveling down the river and dissolving into nothing.

Arriving in the UK~!

Since I finally have internet connection, I’m going to try to blog some before it disappears again. Just to share some pictures and some thoughts on it all! Traveling to the airport in Trondheim I met up with one of the girls I’m going to live with, and then we met the other two at Copenhagen. And I must say, it has been really nice to travel as a group. Photo above is from the flight to Birmingham, when I woke up and couldn’t quite get where I was.

Same with the one below. It just doesn’t look like the UK at all, so in my tired state I got worried I had slept past the landing in Birmingham. But then I fell a sleep again and later woke up looking at english country sides, with fields and golf courses! When we got closet to landing to Birmingham it finally it me:

This is going to be my home for a year!

So lovely and idyllic~!

When we finally landed at the airport all I managed to say was “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh”. I think all four of us was pretty ecstatic and ready! Yes, strangely enough I feel so ready for this! The airport was a bit scary tho, large empty halls, a pass port scanner that didn’t work, plus we had no clue where we were going! After some stumbling and wondering we saw the very obvious signs leading us to the train station.

Or rather, to the unmanned mini train taking us to the train station. There we took the lift up and down several times before finally arriving at the right platform. And getting on the train was pretty stressing and difficult. The cabins where certainly not made for people with huge suitcases.

Oh yes, regular black coffee at Starbucks!

When we got of the train we got on a maxi-taxi who drove us the short way to our hotel. And guess what, we only paid £3 for it! After checking in we decided to go out and eat something. Not knowing where anything was it took a while, but we settled for a restaurant serving fish & chips. This was for someone breakfast, dinner or supper. For me it was the last one. Afterwards we went to Starbucks which we had localized earlier and bought coffee~

After that we tried to find the university of Wolverhampton. which was surprisingly near our hotel! So weird to think that I am going attend here. I think we sat on a bench drinking coffee, looking at the building and trying to realize that we were finally here.

After that we went back to the hotel, where I blacked out due to head ache and tiredness. When I woke up, I and my roommate decided to get some food from a local shop to have some for tonight and breakfast for tomorrow. We bought a lot and only paid around £3-4! In Norway we would have paid at least £10/100NOK!

Right now I’m just enjoying being on the net. I am trying to understand that I am finally here. It has not dawned on my yet!

It’s okay to leave when you know you’ll be back soon

Just as the header is saying, its pretty okay to leave home when you know it’s not long until you get back. When I get back to Trondheim tonight its just 5 small weeks then its easter break and I’m here again, drinking moms strong coffee and eating homemade meals again. Seeing the people I love again.

But I got to admit its going to be great being back in t-town again~ Hearing the cars rush by as I try to sleep, always having the opportunity to go and grab a coffee at a café – I like the urban life.

These breaks do me good in so many ways. It’s like my little personal Zen place. I get time to reflect and think upon things, I get time to truly relax and feel my existence. Kind of meditating and mental training. Also in my head, I’ve been working on the concept of positive thinking. I feel refreshed, by batteries is fully charged. Life is sooo good right now.

The Characteristics of a Roof are Dependent Upon the Purpose of the Building That it Covers

My little tribute to roof’s of Trondheim city and their different constructions & design. These are just a few of the many unique roof’s in the city, and there are far more to notice. Just stop walking while looking down or ahead for once, and look up! I promise, if you’re a tiny hint of interested in design or architecture – its worth it!

A Sky of City lights

I took these way back in November, almost a month ago.

Had a great view, but to short time. Didn’t have time to work with the settings, but I think they turned out pretty well. I remember the weather was pretty funny that day, suddenly the mist came and hid the entire city and I thought it was a power blackout. Then just as quick as it came, it went a way. Really mysterious to watch.

 

The view over Trondheim is truly beautiful.

Beautiful Colors

I love fall and its color. I know I have mentioned it before. This almost makes me miss Trondheim, but it’s just as colorful and inspirational here at home too. There’s even snow in the mountain tops. Must be one of the few things I miss when I’m in Trondheim. Mountains. Still, I treasure this park a lot.
