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.

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.

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!

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.

Short trip to Oslo. Again.

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? 

Towards Oslo

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.

So hete you got a youtube video.

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.

Another beach day

Yes, it’s just that great weather right now here in Oslo and I would say that the weather right now makes this a pretty perfect place to be. But I haven’t vacation yet so I worked during the day and right away after work me and my girlfriend G took us out to the beach where we took a swim today again and grilled and just relaxed at the beach. Today we visited another beach at Bygdø we visited the beach Bygdø sjøbad which is a real nice place near a harbour and a sailing school.

I really appreciate to be able to this kind of things after work. Really gives quality to life if you ask me. By the way this was yesterday but I got similar plans for today but I think we will be staying in a park of the more central parts of the city. 

Reading at the beach

Yesterday I had a real beautiful day it was like summer. We have about 26 degrees Celcsuus and clear blue skies and sun. The weather I just might call perfect.
So me and my girlfriend G biked and walked out to the beach at Huk here in Oslo, Norway.

I had my first swim in the sea estimated 10-12 degrees Celsius in the water and by that I beat the rest of my family for the first swim of the year. That just includes Scandinavian or Nordic countries where the first swim is a efficient way to cool down.

Then I ended the day with some grilling out on the balcony. Yes it was a pretty perfect day. Love that kind of days. How are your perfect day?
