Leftovers. [Roadtrip around Norway #8]

Sometimes you get so excited while cooking a delicious meal that you cut too many carrots, cook too much pasta or wash a lot of lettuce. "Well, let's just put them into a container. We will use them with another lunch or supper in the next days." And then these days don't come. I simply … Continue reading Leftovers. [Roadtrip around Norway #8]

North. [Roadtrip around Norway #6]

"We are now in the Arctic circle," I write my mum. She sends me an emoji filled text message back. "💖 Congratulations 🌟🎉🎊🎈🔔🎶🐧 Probably you will stay the only ones in the family 😄." We keep heading north, two days of just driving with no fjords but gas station burgers. We stop for the Marmorslottet … Continue reading North. [Roadtrip around Norway #6]

First snow. [Roadtrip around Norway #3]

I look across the plane and see something unusual for my ‘it’s still August!’ eyes. Glittering in the sun is a dune of snow. I have to sprint towards it, leaving Bridget … Continue reading First snow. [Roadtrip around Norway #3]

Trails and Sun [Motatapu Track, 07.-08.01.2020]

I’m standing in my red swim shorts outside the food truck and bite into a fried kiwi. We just returned from an overnight hike and the girl from Utah we gave a ride back to Wanaka told us about the nearest laundry-o-mat, conveniently in the back of the central gas station of very sunny Wanaka … Continue reading Trails and Sun [Motatapu Track, 07.-08.01.2020]
