Sunday morning at Kongens Utsikt

I live in a beautiful place. It actually took me a few years to begin to really appreciate the landscape in Hole and Ringerike – it just could not be compared to the arctic landscapes I grew up in. However, the view from Kongens Utsikt (The King’s View) is nothing but amazing, although it’s only 441 m above sea […]

Last stop, Aksla

Time has gone so fast since my short holiday in Ålesund! I can’t believe it’s been almost two weeks and I’m still blogging about it!

If temporarily moving into one of these aparments, your stay in Sykkylven will become quite practical. It’s not […]

Hiking up to Vassætra

I think that some of us Norwegians tend to kind of forget how beautiful our country is. In a busy life consisting of running back and forth, the stunning scenery around us become nothing but a background. We forget to stop and look at it, let the view sink in – because we’ve seen it all […]

Coffee break at Tante Bruun

Around lunch time, we found the most perfect café! Tante Bruun (Aunt Bruun) in the shopping center Ålesund Storsenter seriously has the most amazing interior and relaxed vibe…. Setting aside the tempting and tasty foods and beverages, it was the incredible interior and decoration that caught our attention – and that added that little extra to […]
