A Taste of Taiwan

Taiwan, skal du til Taiwan? Hva gjør man der da?  Svaret mitt er enkelt: spiser selvfølgelig! Taiwan er et matmekka uten like, og for en «foodie» er dette landet du nå skal sette på din «bucket list». Varme nuddelsupper, kjøtt og fisk i alle varianter, Stinky Tofu, Bao eller Dumplings i alle regnbuens farger. En…

Efharisto, Kalymnos

Throwback to our summer vacation in the greek charming island, Kalymnos. We flew in from Norway to the neighbor island of Kos, and took a 30 minute ferry to Kalymnos. We stayed at a family run hotel, Kalymnos village in Massouri, a really charming place with great service. At arrival we were served homemade cake and fresh fruits.

The Besseggen Ridge

Making postcard memories  The Besseggen Ridge in Jotunheimen National Park is one of Norway’s most popular mountain hikes with over 30.000 visitors every year.

This route has…

Mørketid

Når vinteren kommer smygende er det på tide å krype under pleddet og tenne lysene i vinduskarmen. Elsker denne fine sangen av Erik Bye som jeg synes passer så fint til denne årstiden: “Kom og lytt til lyset når det gryr av dag Solen løfter sin trompet mot munnen. Lytt tilhvite sommerfuglers vingeslag; Denne dag…

My local hero

El Pípila is the nickname of the local hero of Guanajuato. In 1810 he became famous for an act of heroism, fighting for the Mexican Independence. His name is still famous in Mexican history and they built a monument in his honor in Guanajuato. My local hero is the hard working Mexican boy, el chavo, with…

When autumn comes

Check out this beautiful photo of Guanajuato captured by my good friend, Roy. The yellow church is La Basilica de Nuestra Señora built in 1961, and behind that you can see the University which was established in 1732. Have you seen the movie Once upon a time in Mexico? Big parts of the movie are shot in…
