Up here, in the lighthouse close to were I grow up, everything is the same. Up here, nothing has changed except for myself. And yet I feel connected to all my previous versions. They are all present. It feels great to be here, to feel the same oceanbreeze, to hear the same waves colliding in the rocks. Sometimes I think that some places are necessary for me to understand my life. Some keyplaces in one's life is what holds it all together. They feel so real that in solidarity to them reality seems to have less holes. I can see me in real life and I can distinguish myself from the outer chaos that hits me now and then. Up here, I do not only feel alive, I am alive. Just as life is a part of me. Just as the lighthouse is a part of who I am. A part of the person I was. And of who I migh become. I know nothing about the future, but I know I will return to this place. As I look out over the ocean, I feel less alone. I feel less lost. I feel the feeling that overcomes the feeling of loneliness. I do not feel complete. I am not necessarily very happy. But I feel at home. And home is what makes me not lose myself in the wind that grabs me. For I am at home. And the view from here is fantastic.
Last year in April I was working in London. Looking back at the pictures makes me want to go back.. I mean spring where are you? It's still snowy and cold outside and right now I feel like april is just a long wait for May and June to come. Summer, oh how I longing for late summernights when the sun hardly goes down at all. And also I'm really craving to travel. 2016 was a year when I had my life in a suitcase, and although it has been nice to be at one place for a while, I really start to crave some adventures.
If I could go for a weekend I would choose Barcelona, Berlin or Copenhagen.
Backpacking I would choose Lissabon.
For a longer trip; Bali or like where ever in California! I'm currently wathing Big little Lies on HBO, the setting at the coast in Monterey (California) is just crazy beautiful!
Anyway, above you can see some pictures from London and when me and my friend Kirsten visited Sky Garden. I can really recomend you to go there if you are in London. The view is enough to be able to see the whole city from above!
Okey, so I'm going to continue tto dream of adventures (and go back to studying scientific methods for my final essey.. yay!).
I can see the light in the tunnel.. and there is spring, summer and.. new adventures. Because the best is yet to come!
Yesterday I had the final submission of the exam for this course. It feels so good to be done! So me and my friends decided to go celebrate! And what better way to celebrate than with some delicious food and drinks at Pinchos here in Umeå. They call them self an app-restuarant, wich means that you order thorugh their app on your phone. All their restuarants are decorated like an old circus from the 20s, dark, cosy and a lot of funny/quirky interiordetails, love it! Their vegan and vegetarian tapas were so good, my favorite was the goatcheese with beets, perfect with a glass of red wine! A really good tuesday night so to speak :-)
