London in 48 hours - My Favourites City Guide

If you have never been to London, you really need to go there. At least for a short citytrip, just to see for yourself what so many people love dearly.

And if you have been to London before, you should go again! Because there’s always something new to discover and experience.

I’ve been in London for a total of 17 days now (yes, keeping track) and I can’t wait to go there again. There are still quite a few things on my ‘London To-Do List’.

From the times I’ve been there, I’ve distilled a list of where I would go if I only had 48 hours to discover London. I’ll show you around London and show you the things I think one needs to see when in London. All the best highlights and the most beautiful places to see, some shops to go to and streets to walk.

For pretty much all the places we’ll visit that require an entrance ticket, it is advised to buy a ticket online. Not only does this save time standing in line (except for the London Eye), but it usually also saves a few Pounds.

On a side note: this guide assumes you have a full 48 hours at your disposal. So probably it’s best to arrive the evening before ‘day 1’ and go back home the morning after ‘day 2’. A shorter trip is of course possible, but then I’m sure you’ll feel the need to come back again. Although I think most people feel like they have to come back again anyways.


Let’s get this journey started. And where to start better than with a full English breakfast. J


9 Life Lessons from a Scientist

Life Lessons in Science

What? Is that even possible.

A nerdy scientist teaching lessons that apply to anybodies life?


Let me tell you, the answer is Yes.

Last month a scientist in developmental biology visited Stockholm University. His name is Peter Lawrence and he gave a lecture about one of the principles he worked on. He finished his lecture by giving us a look inside the life of a scientist.

This last bit had some pretty awesome quotes that are applicable to everybody’s life, so I really wanted to share them with you. (more…)

How I Made a Rented Room Feel Like Home - Room Tour

Room Tour Welcome

Don’t you love it to peak into other people’s houses?

My high school Geography teacher once told that after dinner he would always take a walk through his neighborhood and he loved to look into peoples houses. How they lived, what it looked like, what they were doing? And he loved it especially during the darker days, when the lights and candles would go on and it would look all cozy and warm.

I guess it’s human nature to be curious about other people’s lives. So I have good news: I’m going to let your human nature have a ball today. (more…)
