I got to see my sister Solange live earlier this year and it was superb…as expected! The spirit of excellence definitely runs in the family! She was the headliner at Piknik i parken (Picnic in the park). It rained the whole day but we came prepared rain coats and all. Solange is art and art is Solange. I think that sums it all up. Everything was in sync, sound, voice and her expressive dance moves. Her dancer’s moves were choreographed…

The weather last Saturday was perfect and in Norway that almost always calls for a hike or as they say ‘å gå på tur’ I went on my first hike adventure since moving up here and it was fun. Mostly because we got lost in the forest…here is a little story of how it went…Norwegians are very ‘out-doorsey’ – I have heard this many times before and after I moved and it is certainly no cliché. As a city girl… ‘my…

Spent my weekend on a group cabin trip to the mountains…Specifically Monsetertoppen in Hafjell… The nature up there was breathtaking. Freezing temperatures but beautiful snow capped views and a pleasant group made it all worth it… Did not attempt skiing or snow boarding though…I wasn’t reaaaaddyyyy (financially too, haha), went for short hikes with plans in my head for snowboarding the next time I go up there! Going on cabin trips to the mountains also known as ‘Hyttetur’ in norwegian is a…

Joined on a trip to Donut Heaven on Sunday with some heavy donut addicts to a pop-up donut store called Fryd (Oslo’s original donuts). The lines were long and the people in it scared the donuts will run out before their turn, and I was there curiously wondering as per usual… 562 donuts were sold off in an hour, there was also a limit to the amount of donuts each person could buy to ensure there was enough to go round… talk…

Been a loooong minute since I wrote here! Life got busy! In the midst of it all I made the final move, and settling in has been a mix of emotions. Oslo has been good to me so far… nothing compares to being where your heart is sooo … muchos grateful 🙂 So far we have had no snow in December and have been to a christmas market at the Norske Folkemuseum. If you have ever wondered what Norwegians lived like…
