What I Did This Summer


Me and my girlfriend’s summer-holiday is coming to a close, so I figured I would share with you how we have been spending our time off.



We have climbed one mountain each week, counting an upcoming one this sunday.

The two previous times we combined the hike With some blueberry picking, and on sunday we are eating at a cafe on the top of Fløyen mountain with the friend we visited in Oslo.


Dinner with family

We had dinner at each of our mothers’ individually, and played a lot of gin rummy with each of them.


Improving our apartment

We stopped renting and bought our first apartment at the start of 2017, and there are still many things we have not gotten around to yet, but we have now fixed a bunch of stuff.

We finally found some dining-chairs we were happy with, we bought a bunch of helpful stuff from Ikea, and we unpacked a lot of boxes.

This also led me to finally get the files out of an old broken computer, as I wanted my digital stuff to be as tidy as my physical stuff is getting close to being.


Boat trip


We spent half a day out on a boat, traveling up a fjord to a harbor named Skjerjehamn, and back again.

My girlfriends mother joined us, and we had a really refreshingly windy voyage.


I cut some hair


I usually take care of my own haircut, as it is really simply to just keep my hair short.

But this is the second time I have cut my girlfriend’s long hair, and I think I’m getting good at it.


Relaxing inside

Much of these three weeks were very rainy here in Bergen, so we spent a lot of time on the couch.

We saw 15 movies: Ant-Man and The Wasp, Blades of Glory, Deer Hunter, Get Smart, IT (1990), IT (2017), Jurassic World, King Kong (1933), Kong: Skull Island, Minority Report, Starsky & Hutch, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2007), Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit’, ‘Wet Hot American Summer’, and something tomorrow.

We also finished the Netflix Marvel shows Punisher (season 1) and Jessica Jones (season 2), and we nearly finished a show we had been binging for the last few months, ‘How I Met Your Mother’.

Besides that; we read, solved crosswords, played games, and just enjoyed life in general.


Luckily, we only have to wait for a few more months until we have another two weeks off 🙂
