Back. In white

How wonderful it is to be back, catching huge snow flakes on my eyelashes, getting a glimpse of the northern lights at night time, traveling across the border to Russia for pelmeni… The head image was shot from the top of the stairs of Nikels Cultural Palace.

Life has been running nonstop since I got home from vacation. We celebrated the 75th anniversary of the region where I live as being freed from nazi-occupation. That was last week. Huge celebration. King Harald and several ministers were in attendance in Kirkenes:

She’s visiting now.

She told me this joke today:

The child turned out to be allergic to the cat. We had to give it out for adoption. Then try again. All children can’t be allergic to cats!

Have a nice day 😉

Busy being snow queen

This is the first time I’m trying to blog from my phone. Because my mac is of course resting in Oslo while I’m conquering the Norwegian  wilderness…
It’s said that Norwegians are born with skis on their feet. Are you watching the world championship in skiing (happening right now)? I am not, but I’m sure contestens from Norway are proving the saying true.
More about my personal skiing adventures tomorrow 😉

New sights

Oslo city: modern bridges and skyline and historical towers in the horizon
so here I am…
while on the other side it looked like this…

Forgetting to leave the bus at the right stop is my speciality. Sometimes it’s an adventure. Like today: the sun was shining and I was in no hurry (until my fingers and toes started to hurt that is). Happy Winter Wednesday, everyone 😉
