This weekend has been a bit more intense tha usually because I had to get back earlier today to Sweden. In order to celebrate my dad who turned 55 earlier this week. Where a nice party and I got to see my sister for the first time since Christmas.
So what have I done more this weekend? Friday I drove up to Oslo and my girlfriend G where at a film shoot and came home after me so I had some time to watch 2 episodes of the Tv serie breakout kings. And than we had some wine and just hung out.
Saturday we drove to Brovoll which is about a 1 hour drive north of Oslo into the maountains and went cross country skiing and it was so calm and peaceful and the nature where just amazing so at one point I just had to stop just to enjoy the quiteness, amazing. And the view where stunning lite a winter wonderland.
Later that night we drove back to Oslo and went to see Singin In the Rain at Folketeatret. Great musical and great show which ended a great day.
So past midnight and way past my bedtime my I just can’t sleep. I really have to try harder after I posted this.
After work today I’m heading back to Oslo again for the weekend but it will be a much shorter trip than usually because I will celebrate my dads birthday back home I Sweden again on Sunday. So I should get the opportunity to try out my new camera more then.
Plan for the weekend is to hang out with my girlfriend G and go skiing and that’s about it. What’s you plans?
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.
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.
I’m on the bus heading towards Oslo and Norway for the weekend. But this time is a bit different. A few weeks ago I saw the final concert with the Swedish band Kent but this weekend it’s a new concert and a new artist. This time it’s to see the biggest artist in Sweden, Håkan Hellström. So me and G will go with a few Swedish friends that lives in Oslo and some Norwegian that will experience him for the first time. I’m super excited.
Been thinking a lot about I best could share his music with you because all of it is in Swedish.
Last weekend I hiked up the mountain peak Gaustatoppen here in Norway which is 1883 meters over sea level.
It’s probably the most advanced hike I’ve done and also the highest peak I’ve climbed. Sound cool? It is but its not that advance, at least when you compare with the Norwegians. I mean there where families, old people and kids that made this hike as well. In my defense all of them in a pretty good shape but anyway.
Gaustatoppen is located in the region of Telemark and it’s a mountain landscape and different from pretty much all other nature I’ve ever seen. The views and the nature where spectacular.
Took some pictures that I just got to share with you.
Slowly me and my girlfriend G have started to make plans for the weekend. We got a car for a few days and thinking about making the most out of it and to see some more or Norway even if we’re still working and haven’t our vacation yet.
So what we are planning is to drive down to the Telemark region and to get up on the mountain peak Gausatoppen. From the top of Gausatoppen it’s the largest view in Norway seen to area. According to Wikipedia you can see 60 000 square kilometers that’s like 1,5 Denmark. Sounds pretty amazing for someone who really likes views like me.
I’m really hoping everything falls into place for this. I will keep you posted about this trip. Have no photos of this yet but hopefully I could share some by the end of the week.
Once again I’m back in Oslo and so are my girl friend G. Last weekend and this week most of it has been affected by the trip to Florence, Italy. But this weekend we have just been in Oslo. So good to be back in Oslo and just relax and recharge my batteries. But next weekend I will be out on the roads again nothing major but there will be a trip to Sweden in order to attend a lifesavers conference. In fact this was the last weekend in Oslo for the next three weeks so needed some time at home. But really looking forward for what is planned. And will keep you posted.
Here is a photo of G (my girlfriend) in front of the Royal castle here in Oslo, Norway from out walk yesterday.
Trip to Italy is over for this time and I’m heading back to Norway. But that’s not what I was going to write about today. Today I want to congratulate Norway on its Independece day 17th of May. When they just celebrate like crazy and almost every girl and woman wear their nation costume which also show what region your from. Then there is parades and parties all over the place. Where a part of this last year a bit and tried it and quite impressed. Not at all like it is in Swedne but I think that might depend on a different history where the Swedes been rather independent through a much much longer time.
