Today is my 30th birthday! I’ve long had a plan of making a sort of autobiography composed of several blog posts on this site. This week, after writing a bunch of new posts, I finished that goal.
In November of 2015, me and my girlfriend Renate visited my maternal grandmother in Ålesund, Norway.
Renate had only been in Ålesund briefly one time before, but I had been there plenty of times.
For Norwegians, the Mediterranean is one of the most common holiday travel destinations.
It is such a common destination for us that we have a shorthand for everything around that area. “Syden” directly translated just means “the south”. But for us it just refers to the area around the Mediterranean, despite almost everywhere being south of Norway.
Here’s a few pictures of me, my sister and my grandpa. They’re from a boating trip we went on to Ona Lighthouse when I was seven years old, in 1997.
I and my girlfriend Renate visited New York in the summer of 2014. Washington D.C. is located relatively close to New York, so we decided to visit the capital as part of a guided day-tour.
After our first holiday together in 2013, time had come for me and Renate to go on a much bigger trip. So in the summer of 2014 we stayed eleven nights in New York!
In the summer of 2013, me and my girlfriend Renate went on our first holiday together, after a little over a year of dating. We decided to start off with a few days in London.
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.
