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.

Top 3 Norwegian Beers

After living in Norway for 3 years and traveling I’ve got to know a lot of great Norwegian beers and even if I just getting started I thought that I would share my Top 3 Norwegian Beers with you.

1. Nøisom Brewery Bonfire Blonde
An amazing light well balanced beer that was something I didn’t even know I wanted or liked. A must if you get the opportunity to try.A pale ale craft beer from a Brewery in Fredrikstad founded by three friends a couple of years back with money from their aunts. As thanks they dedicated one of their beers to them, buts that’s another story. Today they are making among the best beers in Norway. This a great pale ale that I highly recommend.

2. Kinn Brewery Gamleguten
A classic ale with just the right kind of character and something for all ale fans out there. This is fact the only Norwegian Brewery that I actually visited. The brewery is located in the city of Florø which the westernmost city in Norway. Gamelguten is an old ale which is my favorite so far from this brewery. But I really hope to try more from Kinn. By the way the brewers pub down on the main street by the harbor is great and would fit right in anywhere in the world. World class!

3. Nøgne Ø Blonde
A well balanced perfect light colored beer for summer days. Tried this last summer and this is as the other once a great beer. This beer comes from the micro brewery in Grimstad called Nøgne. This is a brand that I’ve seen in a few more places than the other breweries on the list but don’t let that dirsturb you this is a truley great and a must try beer.

Did you really think Norway where a good beer country? I for sure didn’t but is real impressed and looking forward to try more Norwegian beer within the future.

Any recommendation on other great beers from other countries?

Tasted any of the beers on the list or what’s you favorite beer? Please leave a comment below.

5 years of blogging

It’s true, I’ve been blogging for 5 years this month. As you might know I’ve been more or less active in the blog during different period but it’s always a thing I love doing.

So, I’ve stared to look back five years in my phone and honestly was surprised by what’s happened during the last five years. I’ve finished university, got engaged, traveled, got married, lived and worked in Oslo for three years and moved back. A pretty crazy journey when I look back on it. Found a lot of photos in my photo library and not sure they ever been posted on the blog earlier but just to show some that’s happened during the last five years.

By the way I can highly recommend going through the last 5 years of photos. Changes perspectives a bit. I know the last five years have affected me deeply and hopefully mainly for good.

Please leave e comment below on what you’ve done the last five years?

An Awesome Photoshoot

About a month ago I had my first real photoshoot as a photographer at John Dee nightclub in Oslo, Norway. Which is pretty awesome and I got 3 new gigs that I’m working on with friends but there is a little planning left.

However my first gig where a concert photography for my favorite party band in Oslo, Norway called Awesomesauce (Check them out here at Facebook or web page here). Honestly a great party band especially if you grew up during the 90’s or 00’s.

Got a call a few days before the concert where they asked me if I would like the work as their photographer during the concert. What’s pretty awesome is that I got almost complete access which where real cool to get that close to the band and the audience. So just hade a few days to prepare but it was awesome. Here is the result and please leave a comment below about which one is your favorite photo and what you think about them.

9 Days of traveling

For the next 10 days I will be away from home and you could say I’m traveling for the next 9 days. So stating tomorrow I will stay at my cousins place which is pretty close to where I work so thats nice.

Then on Friday I will be going to the cottage but I’ll get back to that tomorrow and next week I will be in Stockholm and Oslo. So I thought I would fire up the blog again to see what’s happening.

Spa Weekend with G

This weekend I’ve been hanging out with my girlfriend G on a spa on the Swedish west coast which is a Christmas gift from my mom to us.  So we have been in the spa and in the restaurant mostly and had a great weekend but I haven’t hade the camera or my iPhone with me for pretty much all of the weekend witch might be the most relaxing thing about this weekend but we took a walk along the water this morning and then I hade my Leica T I just couldn’t skip to upload a few of these photos here on the blog.

Enjoy!

The CPR Challange

Today I thought I would have a meeting at the Swedish Lifesaving Association Gothenburg but I had written the wrong day in my calendar but I when I showed up some lifeguarding buddies where there doing the CPR-Challange so they challenged me, which they came to regret.

The CPR-challange is that you once a month are doing the CRP for 2 minutes in on a connected training device that measures the quality of you CPR. The goal is to reach 100 % if not already from the start so by the end of May. But its also about being better that the other once participating. When I did it 12 people had participated this month and my result for January was 86,15% which from now on is highscore and the result to beat.

So a lot of training from now on until next month, the goal is to beat my result from this month. So why do I do this. Simple if/when I will come into a situation where I need to perform CPR on a friend, relative, family member, co-worker (its most probability its some you know) or someone else I want to give the as high quality CPR as possible.

Have you done a CRP course?

Strated trading with stock

Last weekend I started trading with stocks. I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and now I thought was the time to get started. This week has initially started  out negative but I’m in it for the long term and think it will turn around, it usually do. I’ve been introduce to a service called Sigmastocks that I’m tring out, so far its pretty new to me so I will come back on how it works out for me. Super excieted for this and monitoring my stocks almost every day right now. Right now I’m however only trading on the Swedish market. Do you trade with stocks? Any advice for this, please share it.

Oslo Weekend

So half way though this week as well and it just passes me by som fast right now. But i can’t forget last weekend in Oslo. I had a extra day of because it was a public holiday in Sweden. So I took of to Oslo. Anyway during friday I started with stocks and we got guest and then we hit Oslo where we saw a concert with my favorit partyband Awesomesauce that have a playlist filled with guilty pleasure music from the 90s’ and until today. Music that I’ve listend to when I grew up and still listens to. Then me and my girlfriend G knows half the band but still they are real great. I’m sure they will show up later in the blog again during this year. After that there was a DJ with similar music and we dance until the morning came. Can’t remember when I danced all night last time. But it was so fun.

Saturday G and our guest just hung out in Oslo and where home and played games and sunday me and the guest drove back to Gothenburg, Sweden again. Awesome weekend.

And little video from the concert!

 

 

First days of 2017

Now 3 days of the new year has passed and 1 dat of this year went as usually to sleep after a long night and to take farewell to my girlfriend G that went back to Oslo again. But I will see her again this weekend.

Yesterday where the first day back at work, I bought a new membership to a gym which felt like a bit cliche to do the first thing on the new year. However, I wrote this years first blog post 2016 Review and I started to think about what I wanted to do this year.

Today I have been working and meet upp with an old lifeguard buddy (Little B) that’s in town for a few more days before he moves to Skåne (Southern parts of Sweden) in order to study. Walked almost 20000 steps today which feels like a good thing.

Full of thoughts for the new year and this week will have a lot of things in store I’m sure about that!
