  • The Trip to Preikestolen

    Preikestolen is one of the most visited places here in Norway. It is located at the western part of the country and belongs to Rogaland county. If you have been in Stavanger then I assumed that you have also heard about Preikestolen. Since Preikestolen is just a ferry and car/bus (the direct bus from Stavanger […]

  • Ullandhaugtårnet

    The Ullandhaug tower is one of the most visited landmarks in Stavanger. I have never been there (eventhough I only live a couple of blocks aways from there) nor heard about its history. I thought that it is just a telecommunication tower (no more no less) and so I never bothered to ask someone about […]

  • My Holy Week Vacation (overdue post)

    If for some people, attending the mass and visiting churches are their way of observing the Holy Week. As for me I prefer to do it out of religion contexts. It would be going out in the nature and disconnecting from the world. What I mean by the latter is no communication devices nor stuff […]

  • Sauda Fjord

  • Oslo for the Nth Time!

    Even though I’m tired of Oslo, I still enjoyed my short stay there. I went to Oslo last weekend because of an appointment the following day. It went fine and got finished earlier than I expected so I went for a shopping spree at Karl Johansgata, took a cup of hot choco at Paleet, visited […]

I stayed here for a night last Sunday because I had an appointment with the embassy early Monday morning.  I booked a single room at Hotels.com but the Best Western gave me a double room instead for the same […]

  • Winter is Here! :)

    After a week of emotional turbulence, my mood is finally back to normal again. So I went for a walk today at Raudvika. It’s been a couple of months since I went for a walk here. I’ve been busy with work and school and exams are approaching fast as well so I’m kinda stressed out […]

  • Wordless Tuesday

    Sunset at Mekjarvik  

  • Barcelona Spain: Day 2

    Second day was rather a relaxing day. Headed to Barceloneta Beach around 11am and stayed there for at least 2 hours sunbathing and swimming. We could’ve stayed longer but I forgot to bring my sunblock. The beach was crowded but we didn’t mind. The only thing that annoyed us were the sellers who kept coming […]
