Hello Countryside!

Journal, Lifestyle

As I’ve mentioned before in this post, we are in the process of moving. We had moved all of our stuff  into the new crib and we are still renovating the old one. The renovation of the flat takes time because my hubby had decided to take down a wall as suggested by the interior designer.

Our house is circa 45 minutes car drive from Bergen centre. We can also take the bus but it takes 1.5 hours because of the stops. Another way to reach the place from Bergen is to take the westamaran and that takes approximately half an hour with 3 stops included. The location of the house in my opinion is good since it is not that far from the main road and at the same time it is not too near the main road. Thus, safer for the dog and for the future kids. 😀 We have one “visible” neighbor with a huge sheep farm. I find it relaxing and comforting to see his flock of sheep in the morning when I wake up because I feel that we are not alone in this area.

What I like in this area is how close the nature is to us. The trail to the valleys and mountains are just right behind the house and it means that we do not have an excuse to just stay at home all the time. The only downside of living in the countryside is that transportation is more expensive because the shops, schools and cafes are farther, but there are always pros and cons in everything, right? It’s just that we have to know what we need and want. So far, I love it here. Once we’re finish unpacking our stuff, I’ll invite our Family and friends over for dinner.

Here are the shots from the new place. Enjoy!

Zorro is always looking forward to his daily walks here.

How old could this be?

It’s a Toyota pickup truck!

Reminds me of zombie apocalyse setting.

Maybe I can take this home with me and use it for my plants. What do you think?

 

The Horse Farm

Journal, Personal, Photography

After around two weeks of absence from this blog, I’m finally back! I’ve been busy with my part time job, Norway’s Constitution Day,  spent the Pentecost weekend with the bf’s family and traveled to Rogaland to visit my friends and family.

For the first time, I celebrated the 17th of May (Constitution Day of Norway) at Hundvin, a little village outside of Bergen, about an hour car drive from the city center. My bf’s sister lives there and she has a lovely horse farm.

I went closer to the farm, to get nice shots of each horse but all of them went away and turned their back on me (camera shy much?) except for the smallest one. 😛 I think the smallest horse thinks that I have something for him so I let him smell the camera. But when he found out that it’s not edible he turned his back on me! Maybe he’s saying that his services are not free. Who knows? 🙂

All of the horses. They won’t go near me!
