When Sweden goes UK to get educated.
Welcome to my travelblog!
I guess I'll start from the beginning with a rough introduction to who I am. I'm Clara, aged 26 (still don't feel comfortable calling myself a woman), coming from Gothenburg originally, moved to Stockholm, the capital of Sweden when I was 20 and in fall 2010 I moved to London, UK, with a hope to graduate in 2013. What I'm studying? BA International Tourism Management and Marketing. As long as I can remember I've always loved travelling. I'm also a member in the Danish traveller's guild De berejstes klub.
Back to London. I've been living in the lovely capital of United Kingdom for four months and really love it. I started to play rugby in Hampstead Ladies Rugby Club already in my first week and love it deeply, I've been watching several Arsenal games at Emirates Stadium and I totally love the british beer culture and the cozy pubs! The people are very friendly and it's easy to feel like home in London.
I've also celebrated 5th of November, which is a day the crazy brits celebrates with fireworks. Why? A bloke tried to blow up Houses of Parliament in the 17th Century. No, I don't get it either, but it's always fun to watch fireworks.
Hyde Park is definitely one of my favourite places. I got paralyzed during my first visit. That didn't happen to the other parks such as Regent's Park or Green Park, even if they are beautiful aswell.
Another thing I love about London is that it's an international city, and you meet people from all over the world without travelling! Awesome!
I certainly think that London is a great place to visit, to live in for a couple of years, but I still don't see myself living here for the rest of my life. I don't know why, but it's lucking something. It might be the weather. But it's something else that I can't put my finger on yet. I maybe come back to that in a later blog topic another time when I get it.
That's all about London so far let's move on to other destinations!
