The vacation galleries

The day has come!

As I left work today, I had this happy feeling in my tummy, called VACATION!

It will only last a week, but this I know: A week of vacation and traveling is worth many weeks of everyday life. My colleagues will barely notice that I’m gone, while I will feel that a lifetime has passed when I see them again.

Yay.

I’m celebrating by packing and looking up my old traveling galleries ❤

Hello Hello, new autumn

It’s that time of the year again, another autumn of new beginnings has come.

I find myself in the beginning of my third year in arctic Norway. 70° north is not quite the North Pole, but I find it pretty exotic.

September i Kirkenes

I moved here because I got a job for a local division of the national broadcaster. And even though it’s 2000 km away from my mom, my friends and everything I knew: I decided to migrate up north.

I felt ready for change. I said farewell to Oslo and my life there, thinking that moving away from the capital with it’s a fifth share of the country’s population and pretty much everything else, at the very least would teach me something.

My Favourite Backyard

I haven’t really presented this place properly, while seeing how many posts I’ve published from this exact spot – an introduction is long time due!

I call it my "recreational garden"

I used to live in one of the yellow buildings surrounding this backyard. Now, I live in Drammen, but I’m still hanging out here a lot. Not only because of the flowers.

Ah, Magnolia. How nice is that? There is the man who makes the flower magic happen:

Somehow, summer arrived Oslo in April this year. I’m not complaining! I’ve been feeling like on summer vacation for the last couple of days. I’ve been reading many books in my personal little park, yes 😀

I wonder who've been watching me from all those windows!

Apart from those slightly paranoid thoughts, life is quite fantastic!

Yes.
Happy.

 

 

Haitian Monument

The citadel is the largest fortress in the Americas! And people from all over the world come to see the sight, according to my personal guides – two local boys, who probably should have been at school, but followed me around instead.

Haiti was the first country in the world to free itself from colonization (1804). The Citadelle Laferrière was built to keep the newly independent nation of Haiti safe from French incursions.
