X-games has been in Oslo the last four days and I don’t think I ever consumed so much extreme sports before. Started out Thursday night by watching some skateboarding on tv. And the Friday I watched the ladies super half pipe on tv which was awesomeBut the big thing for me during X-games in Oslo was when j went to see the big air competitions with S yesterday on Tøyen parken. The vibe was great and everything was just so cool and had so much fun. Really hope X-games comes back to Oslo soon again. Then the swedes took one bronze medal and one gold medal which didn’t make it worse.
Then I’ve got to admit that today I couldn’t just don’t watch any x-games so I watched the men’s ski super half pipe. Pretty cool I got to say.
Have so video from the big air event. Will see if I can upload it to the blog as well later maybe.
A long time ago I mentioned Florence as a dream destination in Italy and a place that I’ve haven’t been to. I love Italian food and I’m interested in historiy and famous art and architecture. The the weather in Italy is much warmer than up here in Scandinavia.
So two days ago me and my girlfriend G decided to make it a reality and booked a trip late this spring to Florence. I’m so excited and I’m so looking forward to it.
So slowly the planning for the trip has started and to see what we want to do while we’re there.
Tasted The Boss and The Burglar. I’ve eaten some burger but this is among the best burgers in the world and definatly the best burger in Oslo. It’s a classic burger with cheddar, burger, some veritables and it’s just how I want at classic burger to taste. It’s cool interior and has a friendly staff.
The place is located near Majorstuen Subway station and if you will be more than four you will probably need to book a table. It’s real popular and no wonder why.
Hva Skjer – The New
Cool place in the district Torshov in the same building as a concert venue. But the burger here is cooked over open fire and the taste is something different to everything else I’ve ever eaten when it comes to burgers. It’s Asian influences makes it not only delicious but also something new compared to what I’m used to.
Gogrilla – Take away
In my opinion the best take away burgers in Oslo comes from this food truck that’s often is located near Akerbrygge and city hall. Great burgers and nice sodas that’s a bit more different than the regular cola or beer.
Last weekend my to be in-laws are here (my girlfriend G’s family). And Saturday we went Nordic skiing near Solli Gård (Gård=farm). Went all together for a rather easy trail but as always here in Norway with beautiful nature. One of my favorite things about this country. Afterwards we stopped by a cafe at the farm and had some hot chocolate. Tasted real good then.
I know I’m probably the only one that writes about Valentine’s Day today. But to be honest I’m not totally convinced by the concept. Sure I like being appreciated and show my appreciation for the people that I’m love but must it be a special day? And I mean how many gifts with a lot of thought behind will be given today? I’m just asking. But I still am totally in love with G and thing that love is the greatest feeling of them all. What do you think?
The weekend is coming up and G’s family will visit us here in Oslo. I’m looking forward to it and but before the arrive tomorrow we have some things that we must do.
G’s sister K has birthday on Sunday as well so a bit special weekend. Other than that the plans is to go skiing. Which I’m so looking forward to. There forecast says snow and colder weather which would be great fun.
Here as picture some me skiing in the mountains a few weeks ago.
GMy girlfriend came home today in her new X-games hat that she got as a gift at work. Looked pretty cool to be honest. But that made us realize that there is X-games going on in the end of February here in Oslo. Unfortunately G is a away on a trip with some friends but fortunately some my best friend S is here. So we bought tickets to the Big Air finals on the 27th here in Oslo. I’m super excited to go on this event and to get to spend time with S. It will be awesome.
I know I’ve been away from the blog the last two weeks but I still like creating stuff and writing t I’ve been up to other things lately. Both job with the board that I’m apart of but also a project that’s called Bands of Sweden that I’m a part of the last couple of week got some exposure in Swedish media. I’m real proud and happy of being a part of this project and I will tell you more about it in the future. The reason that I’m not been on the blog as much as earlier the last couple of weeks is that the job and a lot of other things have came in between but hope to be able to write more frequently soon again.
I spent a lot of energy on trying to check if I’m allergic to gluten by testing a gluten free diet. It’s a change I’ve got to admit but I think it worked quite good to be honest. I also trying to get going on the training agin and some other things that me not can write about about tight how but I’m working hard on being creative and producing things. Hope that big changes is coming that I can tell you about.
My girlfriend was away on work related award show and I was home so I took the opportunity to watch the first full NHL of 2016 for me. And it was on a good time even for us NHL fans that love sun Europe. The game I chose to see was the New York Rangers vs Philadelphia Flyers. A game where there was real rivalry and it show in the game. The big talker wa about Flyers Simmons getting a game penalty for misconduct and what Simmons did wasn’t according to the rule book but what McDonald did to Simmons wasn’t either according to the rule book if I’m honest. However this nicely said stirded up some feelings and after a while we got a fight and at that point it felt like the referees lost the control of the game and I think fans of both teams felt that way.
Flyers took the lead in the first period but Rangers tied it early in the second. But now for long before Flyers where back in the lead. In the third Ramgers did all they could in order to catch up and it didn’t seam like they where going to succeed but in the lag seconds of the third period Rangers pulled their goalie Henrik Lundqvist and with 12 seconds left they got tied. After that tree was overtime and I once again became convinced about that the 3 on 3 over time format is genius and among the most entertaining forms of hockey I’ve seen. The intensity and skilled and opportunities makes it just fantastic. I love it. But in this game no team had won after the over time so it became a shootout and Lundqust stopped all shoots and Zuccarello made a Peter Forsberg move and where a part of the winning trio that made Rangers win this game. Rangers really stole this game from the Flyers and I really liked watching it but I had hoped more out of the Rangers to be honest.
