Winter Hiking Alone

The original plan where to go cross country skiing today here in Oslo but that plan almost literally melted away. Spring apparently arrived in Oslo today an the outdoor temperature has been between +6-13 degrees Celsius in a sunny Oslo. That where not my original plan.

However, I had a plan B that I’ve been looking into the since a few days back when I started to scout the weather and possible activities in Oslo. During these days I found a stunning post in the Instagram account @Oslo by @ingridheggheim from Grefsenkollen. So that where the main goal with today’s hike where to hike up the mountain of Grefsenkollen.

I hiked up the mountain in a route that sent up and around the mountain. After Grefsenkollen I had my sight set on Lachmannsfjell. That became a bit different hike because of snowy trailers and deeps snow and when I arrived to the peak it wasn’t any view but it was a good experience in finding routes, getting off track and hiking in 80 centimeter of snow, but when finding my way out of the woods and down the mountain alone. It was the first time I hiked alone and it where a bit different but I kind of got into it. Can absolutely happen again. I had nice views of Oslo and perfect sunny spring weather during the end of the hike down the mountain at it was an amazing day.

Tonight I’m heading back to Sweden and Långberget ski resort. For cross country skiing. Will be my first time there and I’m excited about trying out new tracks.

Instagram cleaning

I’ve been on Instagram for a couple of years now but a few days ago I realized that it’s time to do something about my instagramfeed. I realized that it consisted of several users that I just flip by and have no interest in anymore.

That’s when I decided to update and customize my feed to a one where I follow people I care about or enjoy. The integers must go. So that’s why I now check out the feed and reflex if the once I follow should stay in the feed or be cleaned away.

However this doesn’t mean that I’m just are cutting and are cleaning away people, I’m also looking for new interesting or funny people to follow so you have any recommendations please tell me I would be happy to check it out.

Trying the Boomerang app

For the last few days I’ve been trying the app Boomerang that’s the latest app from Instagram and Facebook. Real simple design and looks good and easy to use but to be honest not very useful. Only time I’ve used in a good was so far is when I threw leafs in the park last Sunday.

To summarize, design and user friendliness is great but purpose of the app is a bit more unclear to me.

Advertising on Instagram

It’s been talk about it for a while but until today I’ve never seen it in Sweden or Norway but now has it obviously also reached us in Scandinavia. 

I think is okay as long as Instagram is a free app and network but only as long as they can do it in a good way with information that I might be interested in and  it should look good and be relevant. As long as it is these thing I think I can handle it, if not I will most likely decrease my use if Instagram.

By the way congratulation SAS for your free extra advertising, your welcome.

  

Grandma at Instagram 

Just couldn’t resist to write about this. My grandma who is well over 80 years just added me on Instagram. I know she like to keep up with “modern” technology but this one wouldn’t I even imagine. Tech grandma that’s cool. So when I visited her this weekend she posted a photo of me. So impressed by her.

Hope I’m they curious when I’m I here age. And if someone asks she’s 25 years.

Testing Hyperlapse

Last couple of days I been testing the latest app from the Instagram crew. The app is called Hyperlapse and let you do exactly that: hyperlapses of things. Beautiful videos that makes exciting videos.

The interface is simple and easy to understand. The design is absolutely stunning according to me and I love it even if it’s a bit of a one trick pony. Dispute everything else it only does one thing but for that it’s great and beautiful. trying the latest app from Instagram.

The grade will be 4 out of 5. Great at what it do but miss the final edge to reach all the way to the grade 5 level.

By the way if you want me to try some other leave me a comment below so shall I see what I can do to test this.
