KENYA // MOMBASA DAY 1

1 So me and Daniel went express business class all the way straight down to the Kenyan coast. Not really. We went London > Birmingham > Manchester > Istanbul > Nairobi > Mombasa. A total of 36 hours, out of which only 6 during which we could watch films. KNACKERED we finally arrived to my dear Africa and got to see my family and the lovely exchange student Sara living with them. 14 After a grand breakfast we headed straight down to the powdery white beach. 13I had warned Daniel for the high season, as it’s a lot more tourists in Kenya then. So yeah, this is high season… 1710 My best person and I grabbed some sun beds. 4 And then we ran down to the salty indian ocean, washing away all the winter gloom clinging to our skin, hair, souls. 28 The sun defrosted our bodies and under the swaying palm trees we fell in and out of light slumber. No time, no worries, no thoughts. 12 Saga woke us and a waiter brought us Kenyan coffee on our sun beds, making us feel all royal despite empty wallets. 11 Then it was time for lunch. My impressively wild, genuine and kind hearted mum. A Post ordering swimming break. 5 Chicken, cashew nut and papaya salad. 7 Passion juice <3 3 He is so handsome, I die. As the sun struggled to stay up we packed up our sandy belongings to head back to the house. 15 There our cook Judith had prepared a phenomenal fish curry for us. Y1 We let the golden drops of Ballentine’s whisky rinse our throats but both me and Daniel couldn’t keep our eyes open and fell asleep on top of each other in one of the sofas before 7pm. And that was the end of the first day in Kenya.   Linn

SANTA BABY

2 Just before we left for a hot Christmas and just after my little sister arrived we spent a saturday night at some dreamy hipster Christmas party. 1 It was our friends Jimmy, Nicola and Marlowe hosting it, having decorated the whole flat with garlands they were now playing Beyonce’s new album on repeat mixed with old classic Christmas tunes. ps omg I will never get over that album, and its release and her brilliance and that Bey is a feminist. 3 And as always at Jimmy’s parties there are heaps of pies and cakes and dips and baked goods and sweets and snacks etc. 5 As we kept on sipping gin and tonics people got up to dance while I got to catch up with my Moa finally. We sat in the worn down armchairs talking about my university and how it hurts to lose your best friend, about abusive boyfriends and how easy it is to be manipulated. December had been lying heavy over me, trying its best to suffocate any joy I could feel and now an even heavier stone weighed down my heart as I was reminded how much I wished we’d live in the same city. But the happiness of her being with me in this moment was purer than what I’ve felt in ages. 4 We continued our endless conversation while the whole room got steaming hot, even though we kept the windows open, letting the December wind sweep in. 6 The last hours we danced danced danced, until all the gin was finished and the flat empty. Then me, Daniel and Moa walked the wet streets of a Christmas lit Hackney back to our little house.   Linn

VINTAGE KILO SALE, TREASURES AND GLÖGG

6 Saturday and Sabouné and Stenberg drags me out of bed and we walk down the sunny Hackney Rd for an early expedition to the Kilo Vintage Sale by Bethnal Green. There is balloons and bunting and tons of crappy clothes. 7 We bumped into Emma and Lovisa who are way more talented when it comes to digging up gems. Me and the boys gave up pretty quickly, let’s say after seven minutes, so we told the girls we’d go and grab a table for all of us at Cafe 338. 4 emma Emma. After having queued for about twenty minutes we were seated in the corner and started off by ordering buttery toast and lots of coffee. 1 338 And before we knew it, the heart attack food arrived. So stupidly tasty after a night out. The most brilliant thing about this place is that for £4.20 you get both savoury stuff AND american pancakes with fruit, plus a heavenly coffee. 2 Daniel Stuffed we headed back out on the streets. Miss hanging out with this lovely young man! 3 Together we headed down Brick Lane, talking about saris and Christmas presents. 9 At this tiny little antique shop I found this breathtaking treasure. It was like the angels sang from graphic design heaven when I opened the cupboard to find these old and dusty books with curly typefaces and magical prints. SO PRETTY. There just has to be hidden spells and love notes in there. 8 Me and Sabouné stood there drooling forever, stroking the covers and flicking through the parchment pages. Unfortunately Brick Lane seem to believe it’s the new Mayfair and you had to pay £30 for EACH BOOK. I felt my Harry Potter dreams smash against the dusty floor of the shop as I furiously put them back in the cupboard again, feeling more poor than ever. 10 Sabouné got a great idea though and me, him and Stenberg went to the newly opened chocolatier around the corner for some comfort eating. It so helped. 11 <3 12 Having spent a few more hours scavenging through on dreamy shop after another around Shoreditch somebody came up with the brilliant idea of finishing the day with some glögg (Swedish mulled wine). 14 So we all walked up to Haggerston in the biting cold, to Stenberg’s cosy flat where the walls are crammed with paintings, especially of foxes. 14 lovisa There we took turns playing our favourite tunes of 2013, sipping steaming hot glögg while devouring all the gems of the app of the year: vine. Slightly tipsy and all warmed up again after a few hours it was time for me to go pick up my little sister Moa at the bus stop!   Linn

HAWKER HOUSE STREET FEAST

1 After my being a hip hop queen I then headed out for my blind date with Hanna. She had the whole thing planned out for us and was gonna take me to Hawker House. This she described as ”a hipster heaven in a old warehouse with brick walls and fairy lights. It’s filled with lots of pretentious advertising people and young east londoners. And you can even have LOBSTER ROLLS, like Niotillfem!!!!”. By then I knew I would love her. 2 Hanna Brager So we met up and it was just as she described it, but she was even cooler than I had imagined. 3 Hanna Brager And we ordered expensive whiskey drinks for money we didn’t have, and then just talked endlessly. About London and boyfriends, brittish people and posh mums in Acne jackets, and weird jobs like painting faces on dolls (which this lady did the whole summer). 6 As the night climbed over us we went to the different stalls around the rooms, searching for what to eat. 4 Fairy lights. <3 8 We got some pasta and crazy ass pork buns which must be god’s gift to mankind. Then we took our little paper plates and climbed up to the small terraces and sat down on the floor feeling like nine year olds in a treehouse. 7 whiskey There we sat, looking down at the beautiful whisky bar with its bearded clientele and continued telling each other stories, discussing feminism and boys being dick heads. 9 Lobster Rolls Suddenly over three hours had passed and having spent more money than we could afford we said bye to the expensive lobster rolls and to the lovely Hawker House and headed out. 10 Bye! 11 Like true thugs we picked up some cans from the off licence and walked the christmas lit streets of east London. By London Fields we took a bus all the way up to Dalston. 14 There Ornella and Daria were having drinks in an empty and quiet bar, just like a 40 year old couple. 13 I didn’t like it at all, so I ate my sweets and shut up. 12 ornie Until a little later we met up with Dee and some other girls and went to Birthdays to get down to some hiphop the rest of the night. <3 And that was the end of my friend date night with Hanna, and I LOVED IT. So hopefully you’ll see a lot more of that girl on here.   Linn
