Restaurant Review: Vippa, Oslo, Norway

This is among the coolest places I’ve been to lately and definitely the coolest and best food court/market I’ve ever been to. The place is an old warehouse building with a lot of foodtruckish stand that ll serve dishes from different places in the world. Italian, Thai, Chinese, American, Middle east and so on. And in the middle is the tables and the seats so all could sit together even if you want different dishes.

Great selection and but I tried the duck burger which where amazing and the fries with oregano which where to much oregano but okay. The duck truly where real great.

However, the experience in it self and the selection made me just want to come back. They also have a pretty cool outside area just by the water where you can enjoy the amazing view. Its  cool setting, perfect for lunch and brunch or just something to eat spontaneously. Its affordable among the best prices I’ve seen in Oslo for this kind of food so highly recommends it!

Have you tried it? What did you think? Please leave a comment below.

Movie Review: Jack Reacher Never Go Back

So a while ago I saw the latest Jack Reacher movie and I just have to start of my saying that I really like Tom Cruise as an actor he always delivers. In fact he might be one of my absolute favorite actors. However that was not what Inentirely thought I would write about. I like the actors okay but Cruise and the young girl really makes something of this move. The story is a Lee Child story and he is one of my favorite authors so it’s good but but as good as the books. 

It’s action packed as you expect it to be. The stenography is good. As well as the photography that tends to be action based in my opinion. So I would recommend this movie!

Musical: Singin In The Rain, Oslo

Last Saturday I went to the musical singin in the rain at Folketeatret in Oslo, Norway.

Stenography is classic old Hollywood which all feels obvious but possible and beautiful and tasteful. In fact it really make and impression and I thought it was great.

The actors where good and in general I think they where real good and delivered what I had expected and the guy playing Cosmo had great timing and the one who really made the difference if you ask me.

So what about the music, I can just say it’s a classic and it’s old but good. This must be the mother of all musicals and even this one is in Norwegian it’s great and I highly recommend it!

2016 Review

First of all I just want to say happy new year everyone and thanks for reading the blog during 2016. It’s amazing to be able to run this blog.

2016 have been an intense year but I first realized when looking back at it on new years eve. So I though I would summarize it a little bit. And I have an idea of split a deeper review up during the next month.

So 2016 started I started out on my trip to Bali. Which was my first time I spent new year outside of Sweden. Bali was amazing and among the best trips of my life and right now I can see a lot of people posting from Bali on social media and I just want to go back soon again.

However the trip ended and I returned back to work and my home in Oslo. Back home in Oslo i cross country skied as much as I could and when X-games visited Oslo me and friend went and saw the big air competition which where amazing.

During the spring I celebrated my 29th birthday and I did so in Florence, Italy which where great. Don’t think I ever been to a city where I’ve eaten som much great food and been drinking so much great wine and with great I really med GREAT!

Just two weeks after my return to Oslo I went back to Italy. This time I stopped in Milan on the way to Cinque Terra where I hiked for 5 days with beautiful views.

The summer I spent in Sweden as usually together with my family and during the summer my grandpa on mother side past away. But I also had a real nice summer. Most of it by my girlfriend G’s  family’s cottage in Dalsland but also on the Swedish West coast that pretty much is Swedish summer to me. I also climbed hiked up the Norwegian mountain Gaustatoppen and meet my mom’s cousins and their children which where about the same age as me.

The autumn has I not written som much about on the blog but where among the biggest changes this year. I got a new job in Sweden that meant that I moved form Norway back home to Sweden again. However, I still travel a lot to Oslo and Norway because my girlfriend G still lives in Oslo. Much of the end of the year have been going to establishing my self back in Sweden. Taking up contact with friends in the area. Started to train lifeguarding again.

It’s been an intense year and I already now know that 2017 might be a even bigger year for me. I will let you know soon what this hint is about.

Restaurant Review: Napoli1820 in Milan, Italy

Friday night me and my girlfriend G where in Milan for a quick visit. So we went out to dinner. We found Napoli1820 by the channel in the district of Navigli.

The interior of the place is colorful and pretty typical real Italian style. So it’s not a very special experience here but that doesn’t matter because the place you want to be is outside by the channel and where people passes by. Real cosy at the evening and a lovely atmosphere with a lot of real Italians surrounding you which give and authentic feeling.

So how about the food? I had the 1820 primavera pizza and I got to be honest, it’s probably the best pizza I ever eaten in my life and that’s why I can’t give anything less than 5 out of 5 stars. And the staff is great, friendly and just great.

Warmly and deeply recommend this place.

Restautant Review: Spice Kitchen Kök & Bar, Kungälv, Sweden

Location is central but I wouldn’t call it especially cosy and it doesn’t have any views. But its in a okay building and the interior is okay, Most of the interior is black and its a pretty small place but that’s not why I stop by here. It’s the taste of the food that’s the thing about this place.

To be honest this is the best Thai food in Kungälv if you ask me and it also keeps a very high standard compared to al the Thai food I’ve eaten. I would say that it’s even among the best so if you pass by I could easy recommend it just because of the food. But I have only eaten take away from this place.

Roller Coaster: Superman Escape From Krypton, Six Flags Magic Mountain

I got to admit that I’ve never been more afraid of going on a roller coaster than this one and I had not planed to go on it but as I built up my roller coaster confidence during the day I went. What a ride, this is the only roller coaster ever that made me scream out of pure joy on adrenaline ever.

This 126 meters high and 167 km/h fast roller coaster is beyond anything else I ever tried before. This is excitement and this is a thrill and I love speed in controlled forms and here you go from 0-167 km/h in 7 second, you 90 degrees right up into the sky in 126 meters and then fall back. This is something I can promise you that.

I would without a doubt recommend this if you dare to go on it and I rank it 5 out of 5 points. Amazing!

Book review: The girl in the spider’s web

I absolutely love the first three books in the millennium series. And since the last and fourth book came I thought of reading it but I haven’t got the time for it until now. And won’t spoil the book but write more in general terms of what I thought of it. I think the beginning isn’t that good to be honest it’s a bit slow and over all big what I’ve expected. But the then I really got in to the book and it really captured me. I think this is a really good book but when I’m thinking of why the only answer is the story. The characters is good but this book expects that you’ve read the earlier books. And doesen’t go that deep into the characters. Its different from the first three books but the main heart and soul i still there even if I would expected a bit more from this both in the start and the end of the book. Still a great book that I recommend and I give it 4 out 5 points.

The Girl in the Spider's Web (Millennium, #4)

Best Burgers in Oslo

Kverneriet – The Classic

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.

Rollercoaster: Twisted Colossus, Six Flags Magic Mountain

It was a long time since I had one of these post on the blog but now it’s time again for a roller coaster review. This is a review from when I  visited Six Flags Magic Mountain last summer that I first now could publish here on the blog.

So Twisted Colossus where just re-opened and it as a big roller coaster, trust me in fact its the longest wood and steel hybrid roller coaster in the world. And it gives you quite some time on the ride, especially if you compare with the Swedish and Norwegians roller coaster I’ve tried earlier that often are real good but short. This is something else. It’s not the most extreme ride I’ve tried but it has some cool hang time where you hang over another ride that’s real cool. It’s a real exciting ride with its share of thrills and I really like it.

I would rank it 4 out 5 points and I would definitely recommend it. I attached a video from Sharp Productions at youtube if you want to check it out.
