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!
I love Bergen, and we have been super lucky with the weather! So far, we've been to the aquarium, Johannes showed me his school, went bowling with my one of my friends that I studied with in Denmark, and saw my first ever standup show!
Today was spent walking around the city, and we decided to go to Fløyen which is one of the mountain tops in Bergen. It was beautiful, and we could see the whole city super clearly!
Johannes left Stavanger to go back to school in Bergen a few days ago :( It was a sad day :(
But it's okaaay! Vilde and I were supposed to drive up on Friday (tomorrow), because she's going to visit her brother who also lives in Bergen. But then I thought.. I'm finished at work, and I have no plans today... Why don't I go a day earlier and surprise him? So I did 😇
I messaged him and said I changed my mind about driving with Vilde, just to mess with him a little. But I'm not a complete asshole, so I sent him these pictures (above) right after and said "I'm getting on a flight that leaves in an hour instead" ♥
I'm actually at the airport now, and I'm so freaking excited! But I'll keep you posted! Byeee
Yesterday was definitely one of my favourite days this summer. Johannes, some of his friends and I went to UTOPIA, a music festival in Stavanger. We got to see Stavangerkameratene, MYXE, Zara Larsson, and Unge Ferrari. It was a lot of fun and I was excited to finally meet some of his friends, but time just went by too fast! All of a sudden it was dark, and Johannes' friends had disappeared?? I mean come on, couldn't it last a few more hours? 😇
We left to get food around 22.00, because there was an insane amount of people and we were just being pushed around.. We got kebab (and it was sooo freaking good), and then we went home ♥
Who am I?
Hi, I'm Ine! I'm 22 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 a 2nd year vet student at UNIVET. I'll mainly be writing about my experience as a veterinary student in Budapest, but also about my day to day life and my experience of life in Budapest.
