Happy Friday my dudes! ♥
Because for corona, I have not been to a hairdresser since January... I've cut my own hair, my friends have cut my hair, and my friends have also dyed my hair during this time. To put it nicely; my hair is in desperate need for some professional help, haha!
The process took a total of 4 (!!) hours! It didn't feel like 4 hours, but that's how long it took. I went to Hajszalon on Ajtósi Dürer sor, and I just love that place! They don't have a website or an instagram, which is weird because I've had so many people recommend them, but Agnes (the woman who did my hair) has an instagram! You can check her out HERE
The end-goal is to be blonde or really light brown, but Agnes recommended that we do this in a few steps rather than doing it all in one day, as we both want my hair to stay healthy! I'll see what my hair looks like in about a month from now, and then we'll take it from there.
I'm super happy with the result, so if anyone in Budapest is looking for an excellent hairdresser who speaks English really well, then you should definitely give Agnes a call!
Oh how I just love love love the weather in Budapest during spring time!
The day before I left for Norway, Vilde, Elise and I took the dogs out for some real spring sightseeing. Wishing we had this weather in Norway, but it's a liiiittle bit colder here.. I'm glad we still got a few days to relax and hang out before leaving, though, as I'm not really sure when we'll be able to hang out again.
We walked by the Széchenyi Thermal Bath, let the dogs run around in City Park, and had a late tapas dinner in my apartment when the day was over ♥
Hi! So I realize I kinda went MIA after my last post... Sorry about that!
So, to make a long story short, this is what happened:
Eline and I were sitting in our 16.00-18.00 "Hungarian History and Culture" lecture, waiting for the professor. He walked in right after 16.00, looked at us and said "what are you all still doing here?" We were all confused, of course... He then explained that the school was closing, and that we would not have his class for at least three weeks. Again, we were confused. I asked if he was sure, and he just said "yes, definitely, but you will all get more information from the school either today or tomorrow".
As we leave the lecture hall and make our way to the front of the school, we see police and school security blocking the entrance with red tape. Then, after just a couple of hours, we receive an email saying that the school will be closed for two weeks.
The day after (April 12th), we received another email encouraging us to go back to our home countries, as the school will be closed until at least April 30th. After some thinking and planning (because I have two dogs that need to come with me), I decided that the best thing was to try and get home to Norway as soon as possible. I booked my flight for March 16th, and was able to bring Phoebe with me. There was no room for dogs in cargo (which I'm super mad about 🥺) , but Baltus will stay with his aunties Vilde and Elise until he can travel home with them!
...So here I am! In quarantine with my boyfriend for the next two weeks! Hoping you are all safe in this weird and scary time ♥♥♥
Hi! I'm not really sure how to start this post; actually, I'm not really sure of anything right now.. but my university just announced that it is temporarily closing because of the recent COVID-19 outbreak in Hungary. We don't know when it's closing, we just know that it will be between now and Monday...
I'll try to update you as much as I can, but right now my #1 priority is to find out how I'm going to get home to Norway!
Today was such a lazy day, and it was amazing! Phoebe seemed like she was glued to the couch, Baltus hung out on the balcony all day, and I finally got to watch some trash TV (aka "90 day fiancé". Other than the occasional "pee breaks", we just stayed inside and enjoyed a day off.
This week's highlight was having a taco night and sleepover with Vilde! We made taco (obviously), watched "New Amsterdam" and then I pretty much just passed out on the bed like I always do, haha... I love sleep! I woke up at 5.38 the next morning and Vilde just turned around, looked at me and said "we are NOT getting up yet" and then she fell asleep again hahahah!
Probably that I haven't been very productive, to be honest.. I'm exhausted and I really just want to go home to my boyfriend and relax for a bit. Luckily I'm going home next weekend, because I find myself doing literally ANYTHING except studying... So I need a little rebooting when I go home
That I'm going home in only 5 freaking days!!!!
Norwegian candy omgg..
This is from Saturday's anatomy quiz! My friend Eline made us (Sarah, Vilde, Elise and myself) waffles while we studied for anatomy ♥
Yesterday was Sarah's 20th birthday, so Vilde and I put together a surprise party for her! We spent all of Thursday and all of Friday morning / early afternoon just running around, from store to store until we fond everything we needed. We got about 30 balloons, some of which were killed by our dogs, paper plates, a crown and "happy birthday" glasses for the birthday girl, candy, confetti canons, gifts, "happy birthday" balloons, food for making taco, and we also went on a secret mission to get her a present from her parents!
We all felt like the worst friends in the world, because we had all pretty much just pretended that we didn't even know it was her birthday... BUT! She was really surprised and really happy in the end. + Her boyfriend even surprised her and came to visit from Norway! ♥
I think it's safe to say it was a great night with great people, and I'm so glad to have met this amazing group of people here in Budapest! ♥
Today, we're only doing one thing; snuggling. It's been a long first week back at school, and I can already tell this year will be hard, so I'm dedicating this day to relaxing and just hanging out because I have a feeling there won't be much time for relaxing this semester.
I am super excited, though, and can't wait to see what this year and all these new courses will bring! ♥
Today was a great day, regardless of how much I may or may not have complained... See, the thing is, I love being outside. I love camping, kayaking, travelling, I love road trips, going on long hikes, and I love trying new things and seeing new places. However... I also like to be prepared...
So today, my boyfriend and I were in the city centre because I really wanted to see the fish market, and I also needed a new sweater. The reason I needed a new sweater is because I was so excited when I was packing my bag to go and visit him, that I didn't even realize what I was even packing?? I'm dead serious, none of my clothes go together except for the outfit I was wearing when I went to the airport!
After we finished shopping and started to head back to Johannes' apartment, he goes "should we hike Mount Ulriken today? I said "sure!", but little did I know that my legs were about to become jello...
We were suuuper lucky with the weather, and I was super happy when we got to the top, but man I complained like a 5 year old child about 1/3 of the trip.. I'm not proud, but I'm not gonna lie about it either, haha!
Who am I?
Hi, I'm Ine! I'm 23 years old, from Norway, and I currently live in Budapest, Hungary, with my dogs, Baltus and Phoebe. I've wanted to become a veterinarian for as long as I can remember, and I'm currently studying at UNIVET.
