It's weird how I have completed so many things, planning on updating this blog for so long, and just never taking the time to do it. Here's my attempt at it though. Over the next few days, you will see a few more updates.

OaB #21: Sleep All Day.

This could be considered cheating... But then again, I make up the rules, so I decide what's cheating and what's not.

When I was in Canterbury, I got a cold. A cold from hell! I guess it was some kind of English cold that my immune system was not used to, because it really knocked me out. I had fever (even woke up in the middle of the night, crawling on the floor for water), a runny nose, a cough, and swollen tonsils, but worst of all - I had a migraine for three days. I did not feel well.

I ended up lying in bed for 40 hours. Once or twice I managed to go to the bathroom, and I also managed to join my homestay in the dining room, when she was kind enough to offer some food. But apart from that, I spent the whole day sleeping.

But what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? And I did get to cross something of my list. :)

OaB #90: Get from A to B Using a Map.

Sorry about the lack of updates lately. As some of you know, I've been in England for almost the whole of April together with my classmates, and ever since I got home I've been in the middle of a move. But I figured I should update the blog with some of the things I've been doing.

We started our time in England by spending three days in London, which was very nice! It's the home of Richard Horne. People keep saying these books are almost my bible. If that's the case, that'd make Mr. Horne my God. A scary thought, isn't it?

London is a very big city, especially if you compare it to Stockholm. This of course means a map is necessary when you want to go somewhere. And when in London, you really want to go to as many places as possible, right? So we ended up using our map quite a lot.

We then spent three weeks in Canterbury, which is very much smaller compared to London. However, if you're a lost Swede like us, you still needed a map, even if you started finding your way after a while. My point is, there was a lot of getting from point A's to point B's using maps during our England visit!

Here we are; Victoria, Erika, Camilla and I, finding our way in London.
