Hi! It’s been a while since I wrote a blog but I’ve just been so busy with all kinds of things – working at the Artisan Lounge, going on several day trips and of course I had to do a bit of studying as well. A recap in pictures:
I’m so happy I’m on the ‘right’ side of the campus – I mean, who doesn’t love a view like this?!
I wrote a few postcards to my friends back home and to read the whole text, they had to be together. Should’ve known that would only work weeks (!) later.
Ayr library’s got windows. I like windows, especially when they look like this.
This, by the way, is my view when I’m working at the restaurant! You probably can imagine how hard it is for me to resist those empire biscuits…
I mean, LOOK AT THEM. Yum.
Classmates in the sun <3
I went with ISUK (International Students UK) Tours to Bamburgh, a village on the east coast of the UK, just over the border from England.
They had seals. Live ones. Wild ones. I don’t think I ever saw one before this close!
Next stop: Alnwick Castle! Harry Potter fans like myself unite!
This is why.
Also, the Duke of Northumberland (the family actually lives there in winter!!) is the proud owner of one of the biggest tree houses in the world.
Marc and Ben did too, I think.
See how much we’ve learned?
I really enjoyed those five minutes of sunshine.
Last stop: another castle which I completely forgot the name of.
Bought myself a nice wee souvenir :-)
Since a few weeks we have TV Studio classes – my favourite time of the week!
Sneak peek for our River project…
Still wondering about the Gaelic language. I thinks it’s awesome though.
Playing cool games (I was miffy and I didn’t guess that in my first try HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE).
TV Studio again!
Second ISUK Tours-trip: Gretna Green! The marriage capital of Scotland. You can see why.
Next stop: Durham Cathedral! Lovely city and a wonderful cathedral as well!
Not only because it is Harry Potter-related, by the way.
They even had a model made out of Lego blocks!
I paid a pound to build a small part of it. Cool marketing idea!
Rewarded myself with the best cupcake ever afterwards.
Final stop: Angel of the north.
Working on the River project again…
Wifi outage of four days? No bother: just play Monopoly over and over again. Apparently, they have a cat!
Dear Susanne sent me mail! Loved it.
The river Ayr. Wonder where they got that name from.
More games at Eglinton Terrace!
Made some sort of hipster sign for the restaurant last week. Got loads of compliments on it :-)
And I saw this jolly fellow on my way home! Didn’t know what to do so before I could decide if I had to call anybody, it ran off. Hm.
And, at the moment of typing, I’m sitting in The Project Cafe in Glasgow – waiting to meet up with Lana and go to the airport afterwards. Yup, I’m flying home for a few days! Can’t wait. See you next time (and hopefully sooner, sorry about that…)!
