A Must Do In Oslo: The Sunday Market

•••
Last week I went to Norway to visit friends and family, and decided that this time I was going to do some touristy stuff as well. One of the main things on my to-do-list when I visit a city is to go to thrift stores and flea markets, and Oslo was no exception. Instead of the standard souvenirs I love to find unique local, possibly weird and cheap treasures. [...]

Ona - A Coastal Time Travel

•••
Growing up in a Norwegian town located on seven islands, Ålesund, I've always felt a strong connection to the sea. Being a kid of the coast and mountains, these are the places where I can relax the most.

My powder snow paradise

•••
Dear travelettes, Ever since I moved from Norway to Berlin, I've found the winter a little bit more boring and a little harder to deal with, mainly due to the lack of mountains. When the leaves start falling off the trees is when I start daydreaming about snowboarding and cross-country skiing in my native winter wonderland. Ever since I was a little girl,[...]

How to travel Norway on a budget

•••
My dear motherland, Norway, is known as one of the world’s most expensive countries, but also one of the most beautiful (and yes, I am very objective in this case). When trying to sweet-talk Norway to people, the first thing I get asked about is if it’s true that a beer cost 10 euros and how one can afford to travel there. During my three years of studying i[...]

Hiking in Norway

•••
Ever since I moved away from Norway I find there is something magical about returning to the fjords and the mountains. After spending time in the ”concrete jungle” or in small green spots in the city it is liberating to go walking for hours and get some fresh mountain-air.
