This route has…

Lisbon vibes

Every year the girls have a tradition of arranging a weekend trip to an unknown destination. The trip this year was planned by my cute friends Betina and Anna, and they managed to keep the destination a secret for many months. We met up at Anna´s place Thursday night for dinner and wine, and 4 o’clock in the morning we left…

O´hoi sailor

En kald vinter i Norge pakket vi matrosdressen og kapteinslua og satte kursen mot Karibien. Ferden gikk til St.Thomas og De Britiske Jomfruøyene. Åtte venner hadde planlagt seiltur i lang tid, og valget falt på katamaranen Loveboat. Var det tilfeldig at båten ble omdøpt fra Farfar II til Loveboat rett før vi reiste? Gjennom det norske firmaet Caribbean…

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

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…

In colors of the rainbow

Mexico, the country of colors One of my favourite cities in the world is Guanajuato. The city is placed in the centre of Mexico, two thousand meters above sea level. The narrow cobblestone streets climb up and down the city centre, and every hillside is covered in small beautiful houses painted in colors of the…
