Today was another fun day in the quaint city of Trondheim! Ok, maybe city is a big word, but what a pretty town it is! I totally fell in love with it! I´ll tell you this, I´ll take the first chance I get to go back! Although it was raining this morning, it didn´t last, so I grasped the chance to explore it after hours.
What a lovely day! And what better to do with it than go for a stroll with Anette and our dogs? We´re lucky to have many cosy areas around and Kampen is one of them. A former working class neighborhood, its vivid colors are refreshing and its wooden houses- quaint. Almost free for traffic and boasting with a couple of real time charm coffee shops, it´s the place to go if the sun is shining and you have a couple of hours on your hands. Just have a look for yourselves!
Oh, I can feel it already! Winter is gone, I can smell the fresh air, but it doesn´t have a sting to it anymore. Summer is on its way! I´ve been longing for it for so long, anticipating, making plans, I´m sure it will be the best summer yet!
We don´t have that many holiday plans yet, but we´ll probably take all those weekend trips we never get around to do otherwise. Except for two short breaks in May- me in Lisbon with a friend and Vuong at a fair in Barcelona, and 10 days in Belgrade in June, we have absolutely no idea what we´ll be doing. It just has to include Sam and some good weather. And shrimps and white wine.
Take a look at Drøbak, it´s a small town dream just an hour away from Oslo where we spent a Saturday last year. It was such great fun, can´t wait to go back. They have a lovely antique shop, white wooden houses, a small marina and a couple of restaurants. Who needs more?
I promised you a couple of pictures of Stavanger, so here they are! Quaint wooden houses, old pavements and even flowers. It really felt like an early spring. Enjoy!
Today I´m home with a cold and feeling sorry for myself. Don´t really feel like doing anything, think I´ll just drag myself on the couch for the rest of the day. Meanwhile, Nina Simone, a pot of green tea and some books keep me company. The cat is purring beside me and I threw a couple of wooden twigs in the fire. Dreaming of Røros, where we spent a weekend last year, it´s such a beautiful winter destination! Lots of snow, good food, jolly people and friendly Norwegian forrest cats. A mine community in the 16th century established this town with colorful wooden houses and today it´s on Unesco´s World Heritage List. It´s like going back in time to when we still believed in Santa Claus. Take a look!
