• What’s your favourite park in London? 🌳🕊 I prefer Hyde Park for picknicking, St. James’s Park to spot one of the most gorgeous blossoms during Spring and Regent’s Park for a relaxed day out (it’s quite big as well, almost got lost on the day I took this picture 🤔😂) • | Regent’s Park, London
• On the lookout.. 🐎 // Have a great weekend y’all! I’m planning to enjoy the good weather the upcoming days while it lasts ☺️ • | Trafalgar Square, London
• London calling. ☎️💥 // A new picture serie is coming up! I visited my all-time favourite city last week, and I can’t wait to show you all the beautiful spots I’ve captured around town 📸 During my stay, it kind of felt like I returned back to my second hometown. Places I’ve been to multiple times can become less-exciting after a while, but in one or another way this isn’t the case in this city. As the famous saying goes: “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”. Amen to that 🙌🏾😌 • | West End, London
• ..Still not sure if I’m dreaming, but temperatures around 24 degrees will be reached in Holland this week! ❤️ It finally feels like Spring here (it took quite a while 😂), which means: spending as much of my time outdoors. What’s the weather like in the place you’re currently staying at? :) • | Jordaan, The Netherlands
• What paradise looks like 🌸☺️ • | Zuid Holland, The Netherlands
• let’s KICK this monday! 💥 // Looking for a more quiet canal area in the city? Head over to the Jordaan district, situated very close to the Prinsengracht. I recently visited this neighbourhood for the first time and loved the authentic atmosphere. Also, lots of art studios & independent shops can be found here 🙌🏾😌 • | Jordaan, The Netherlands

So here I am, typing this blogpost at my desk in a city which I can call my home for the next three months. Last week was all about settling: getting used to a new environment, my own place and the people. I have lived at my parents’ house my whole life, so moving to London was a big transition for me. Besides that, this will be the first time to experience life in a big city. With 8.6 million inhabitants, London is the biggest city of Europe. I had to get used to the big crowds and the huge amount of buses and cars crossing the roads every day. People in the UK drive on the left side of the road, stand on the right side of the escalator and walk both the left and right of the street… You probably understand that it gets confusing for me sometimes.

Since my classes started this week, I had enough time create a daily routine and got to know the city better during the last couple of days. I did a lot of strolls in my neighbourhood and jumped regularly on those cute red buses to get a better idea of where everything is situated. I went to the introduction days which were organized by my university and attended a boat cruise on the Thames that included an afternoon tea (as a tea-lover, you can imagine I was totally in my happy place!).

Living on your own for the first time in a country where you don’t know anyone can be a challenge sometimes. It gives you a big responsibility, since you have to figure out everything yourself. On the other hand, you’re provided with a lot of freedom (which isn’t a bad thing at all ;-)). My classes are starting this week and I’m ready to get involved into the British uni life: Bring it on!
