Hoe easily my absence from this blog can be explained: I got a new phone for my birthday! Hurray for Phony! And suddenly I didn’t need to drag my heavy camera around with me. A phone is more than sufficient for capturing everyday moments. Which I’ve been doing and posting on my tumblr-playground here.
notice anything special with the lady mannequin? typical sight in Ocean Drive :-p

Also, somewhere between writing my exam paper and planning my journey to USA, I managed to move to Drammen, the most cozy town. It rests by a river in a mountain valley and I have a view from my balcony, need I say more? My furry BFF likes her new place of residence very much too!

What more pictures?
I’m still settling in, really, Drammen needs exploring! And I will be taking my camera and you with me. But that’s in the future, while this post is all about the year that has gone. And there one last important journey that needs to be mentioned – The Annual Russian Trip.
And thus a WordPress Year has passed. I’ve been a little depressed lately because I’m unemployed, bored and broke, but looking back at the amazing times I’ve had quite recently has helped me remember what a fortunate person I am. I will just sit tight, enjoy my freedom and wait to shine again. Thank you for staying with me!
Since I arrived the sunshine state (it’s a way to say Florida, right?) I’ve been itching to blog, but finding the opportunity (and the Wifi) to do so has not been easy! Oh, well… I’m having fun and soaking up the sun, getting a tan and enjoying myself immensely! I hope you love your summer vacation as much as I love mine!
May 17th is Norwegian constitution day. Everyone say ‘happy birthday’ to each other and eat sausages and ice cream. The royal family waves from the balcony of the royal palace (the yellow building in the background of the picture) and people suit up. Check out the folk costumes in the crowd (and if you wish to know more about the traditional Norwegian clothing, click the following link: BUNAD >>)
I’ve been carrying my camera around with me the last couple of days, as I always do, but I haven’t shot a single picture. The world isn’t very inspiring these days, so I decided to change that. I gave myself a mission…

I got home dripping wet, and not entirely happy with the day. But not entirely unhappy either… After all, I found these guys:
Ice and snow in Oslo, feel free to fight spring for as long as you wish. I don’t care 😉
I’m once again packing my bags and getting ready for the adventure of my life. As usual, I’m both excited and slightly panicked. … What should I pack?! Have I thought of EVERYTHING? Probably not, so I’m distracting myself from worrying with sunny thoughts;
