Dedication

Lifestyle, Photography

Before I hit the sack, I just want to share this photo of my hubby. I’m sure that he’ll protest once he sees this but I’m just proud of him. Today he worked alone on the installation of the laminates and it amazed me how he put his 100% on this task. You see, doing something that you don’t normally do is not that simple. If I were to do this, I’m sure that it will take me days to complete just a small part of the room.

This is one of the things that I noticed with the Norwegians in general, they love to renovate their houses/flats. Of course who wouldn’t love to have a cosy place if you are living in a cold country. Since the manpower is expensive here, they do the reparations and renovations mostly by themselves. Well except for the electricity and piping though. You need professionals to do that or else you wouldn’t be allowed to rent it out or sell it for a good price.

Anyway, thanks for dropping by and reading my entries. Have a great week ahead. 🙂

The Gingerbread Town of Bergen

Art, Culture, Journal

One of the coolest things that I’ve ever seen this year is Bergen’s Gingerbread Town. I’ve never thought that this gingerbread town is the biggest in the whole world! I can say that I’m impressed by the different kinds of structures that they built out of gingerbread. These were built by kids, bankers and people from almost all walks of life (in Bergen). So yes, hats off to these people.

We went here on the second weekend it opened. The entrance fee is around 85 NOK. There is a small shop where you can buy gingerbread and sodas too.

Anyway, if there is one thing that I love from this miniature town aside from that it is cool is its coziness and how it peaceful and calm it looks. If only the world could be like that, peaceful. Then everybody is happy.

Into the Woods

på vei til Høgstefjellet

I find forests interesting because whenever I’m in one I can’t help but wonder if there are mystical creatures that could suddenly appear. Like for example a unicorn, a troll or a werewolf. Who knows what the woods are hiding from the mortals.

Anyway, this shot was taken on the way to Høgstefjellet, a mountain in Åsane. This is just one of the beautiful forests in the area. One rainy day, I’ve decided to go out and hike. My plan was to reach any mountain tops in Bergen area that I’ve never been to. I read about Høgstefjellet in the internet and I got excited about hiking it because it’s not that far from where I was staying. I went hiking with Zorro the dachshund even though it’s raining and my shoes is not good enough for the muddy trails.
