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!
Summer is on its way
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!
Christmas is around the corner
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!
