There are times when I am extremely happy with my job.
I’m quite pleased with being a journalist on most days, but some assignments make me think “Hehee, how did I get this lucky?”
Last week has been full of those wonerful moments. Because…..
I got to cover FINNMARKSLØPET!
What is Finnmarksløpet?
Basically, it’s the longest sled dog race in Europe.
Oh yeah, and check out my Flickr gallery if you love cute dogs 😉
A random walk around the neighborhood. I like it when it rains too.
You might remember that I have this awesome backyard at my disposal?
Or Haiti by Phone!

Have you ever tried snorkeling? Was your craving for a waterproof camera only rivaled by the discomfort of seeing the foreign world under the sea?
Maybe it’s just me. I guess I’m a little afraid of fishes and everything underwater. Like, when I tried snorkelling in Egypt (ages ago): I was in a group following a guide, slightly nervous, sea animals are weird and I had never really given any thought to whose water I’ve been swimming in before. And then our guide goes ahead and digs out a bag of fish food from his swimming trunks, turning ALL THE FISHES’ ATTENTION TOWARD US!!
Puh, I’m still recovering. My recent encounter with fish was not anywhere near that frightful. The fishes were swimming peacefully in their enormous aquariums, with me on the other side of the glass, safe! With my camera 😀
Where: Ålesund Aquarium
(pssst, can you spot elPadawan among them?)

I love being alone, but the evenings are getting longer every day. I figure I’m not the only one ready for some quotes ’bout loneliness (thank you for providing, goodreads)
“Remember: the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. Life’s cruelest irony.”
― Douglas Coupland, Shampoo Planet
“Maybe ever’body in the whole damn world is scared of each other.”
― John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men
“If you’re lonely when you’re alone, you’re in bad company.”
― Jean-Paul Sartre
“Solitude is fine but you need someone to tell that solitude is fine.”

Luckily for me, I have a dearly preciousss ball of fur to converse with!
