Back to Campus Bergen

I’m officialy back to school after the maternity leave and the extended leave. I must say that it’s so good to be back despite the fact that I’m not joining my batchmates anymore because I’m a year delayed. I miss them though.

Not feeling it yet

Christmas is just around the corner. Colorful blinking lights, jolly Christmas songs and cardemom scent in the cafes. Do not also forget the busy shopping streets and alleys downtown and at the mall, which all tell us that it is that time of the year already. I have also started decorating our home for Christmas….

Voracious Eaters

Sometimes, I wonder where on earth do the food balls go that fast because this weekend I placed 6 pieces of bird food balls and then by Monday, it’s totally gone! So, yesterday I bought a pack of balls again and put it on the feeder. I know and I’ve seen before that small birds…

Trying Out EM1X- part II

The purpose of trying out the EM1X is to see what it is capable of because I’m considering an upgrade. As I mentioned on the previous post, this is a campaign of Olympus. You get to borrow a camera for a week or two, then you get 3000 kroner off on the EM1X or you…

Flea Market Finds

Last Sunday, there was a flea market at Hundvin’s “ungdomshuset” (youth house). The proceeds from this event will go to the school’s music program.

Last month, I was fortunate enough to have been given…

Tall Ships Races 2019

The Tall Ships Races is one of the biggest events in Europe every summer. The idea is to build good relationships between the different countries and cultures through sail training “tall” ships or sail boats. The participants should be at least 50 percent young people. This year, we are fortunate enough to have witnessed this…

Dry Spell

It is just spring and yet it has been very hot these days. I am not complaining about the sun but the extreme lack of moisture/water/rain bothers me. It bothers me because we are prone to grass and forest fires. Yesterday, there was a fire near our place, while my little one and I were…
