London trip

  • 12.06.2018, 14:38

Hellooo guys.

A few weeks ago me and Maria were in London. It was a really special and fun trip. I remember calling Maria one day and telling her how good it was there last time I was in London (only 4 weeks before). There was a lot of back and forth if we should actually go or not, but then we decided we should.

I got up at 4 o'clock in the morning and packed over 21 kilos as usual (only for 3 days). I also had the world's smallest car I had borrowed from Audi! Maria was waiting for me at 5am, so I had an ice cold redbull waiting for her when she got in the car (as cute as I am) !!
Finally, we were on our way to the airport. We bought some alcohol so we could enjoy ourselves on the 2 hour plane journey.
As clever as I am, I forgot to go to the toilet before we landed. So I was bursting to go the toilet as the plane landed, and had to literally run to the toilet. Maria did nothing but laugh at me while I was dancing around myself in pain, haha.

As we finally got off the plane, we had to book a taxi. My original idea was to order a limo from the airport and to our apartment. So we asked them if they had a limousine, which they said they did. We went with our driver to the limo, but it was far from a limousine. They thought we meant a big nice car, and that's what we got. But not as expected of course. So we took the big car with our 40 kilo luggage to the apartment right by Tower Bridge.

We had booked a really nice luxury apartment at the Cheval Three Quays in London, so we were expecting a lot, but the apartment was much better than our expectations!
We had 2 master bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with a large bath, 2 balconies with a large living room and kitchen on the 10th floor. Too bad we didn't stay there a whole week. We had so many plans - but only got time to do half of them.
We went out both nights, since we had a friend that told us if we went to his Club we could have free drinks all night.
And for some reason, I'm always so generous when I'm drinking. We got free drinks all night, but I still gave the bartender tips ... not just a little bit either - but 10 pounds each time. Typical me.

In London the clubs are open until 6 in the morning, so around closing time I tried to take Maria home. Not always that easy to go home when we were having such a fun time, but I knew we had to be out of the apartment at 1 o'clock the next day.
The Monday (our last day) was stressful. When we finally arrived to Norway we ended up on the wrong bus to the parking place. I think we got on the wrong bus about 3 times. So in the end we had to walk for about 20 minutes, through a forest with all our luggage, to find our car.
But despite this, we did have a great time. And I can't wait to go back there. But for now. I'm going to visit other countries first.

Nothing left for me here

  • 11.06.2018, 13:53


Maria here, with my very first update on this blog. These past weeks have been very hectic, with a lot of planning and organizing to do. However, it has all gone smoothly and we are ready to move. To be honest, I never thought it would be this easy to just move, and i've almost been waiting for something to happen. But luckily, it hasn't.

The reason why I wanted to move is because I really needed a change in life. I've been doing the same thing for a long while now, studying and working, and I felt trapped in the same routine and the same everyday life. There was nothing new, challenging or exciting happening, and I felt like I needed to do something out of the ordinary. Something big. I love being spontaneous, and saying yes to every new opportunity that comes my way. I think this move will be good for the soul, and who knows- we might never return.

There are so many other options in life then just staying in one place, and doing the same thing. There just isn't enough for me in Norway at the moment, and there certainly isn't anything holding me back. 

Can't wait to get down there and start a whole new way of living. Fingers crossed!!

I'm soo excited about this

  • 11.06.2018, 10:46

Good Morning!

I really can't wait to tell you about a big project that is going on. But for now, it is something we have to work on more first, but we will be ready to announce it within 4 weeks.

I'm very excited. Not only have we had a great opportunity to join in on the project, but we will get the opportunity to share this pleasure with you.
Amazingly, so much is happening in my life right now, and being spontaneous is the best feeling in the world. I have so much energy in my body, so it's not often this girl is sitting at home for a week without doing anything.

This week I will travel to Sweden, but first I have to go to Audi and pick up my other car so I can sell it. There is a lot to think about during the day, but unbelievably, I get time for everything.
Back to my point, I will give you a little sneak peak on what's going on here in Oslo. I'm moving to Spain, but I'm coming to Oslo for a visit as soon as this gets started. We can not miss this weekend for anything!!!

What about the people I love?

  • 10.06.2018, 10:01

Good morning!

Since I have so much to do before I leave, I'll try and write a little about what happens when I get time.
I have asked myself, what will happen with the rest of my loved ones at home? Should I leave the people I love? Yes I will, but we have talked a long time about this. Everyone understands that I want to experience new things now while I have the opportunity, and I won't be travelling alone- but with Maria. 

How long are we going to stay in Spain I do not know yet, but for now I do not see myself coming back to Norway.
The closest people to me are coming down this summer, so I will get a lot of visits.
I love to travel and have already been to lots of places. But I never look forward to go back home! Isn't it better for my closest friends to be able to fly down to Spain and stay there with me for a week? And anyway, I will always come home for a visit, so yeah.. I'm leaving what I had here in Norway, but everyone is happy for me.
Something I look forward to by moving to Spain is that I might start riding and competing again. Maybe I will buy myself a new horse? I already have a friend in Denmark who has a great horse standing ready for me if I want her. 
But time will tell!

I have grown a lot over the past year. I hate to argue with people, so whatever has happened, I have taken a step back.
I value the people I have in my life, and have never worked as hard on these relations as I have now.  
I am focusing on getting a good career in life and experiencing what I can. Also, to get to know as many people as possible! That's what I call happiness.


I will go for a run now before I need to fix the rest of my house..
Hope you all have a great morning, some of you maybe.. If you dont have a good hangover! haha.. 



Goodbye Norway

Heeey, long time no see!

Okey...it has been a while since I've written anything here, but I took a break from writing.
A lot of exciting things has happened, and a lot more exciting things are about to happen, Omg! From now on, I am choosing to write in English, because I am moving to Spain,  so I hope it won't be a problem for you guys.

So why am I moving to Spain?! I wanted to do more exciting things in life, and get the feeling that I could just travel and experience something other than Norway. So why not?
I have got a job, an apartment and I have already got a lot of friends around the world. After my trip to London I was thinking about that I would love to find a Norwegian job somewhere else than in Norway. Ofc, I do have a great job right now!! But I wanted to do it in a new place, with new people!  However, I'm not traveling alone. My best friend Maria is travelling with me!! And she's got the same job and we will be living together in the same apartment! I could not have asked for a better travel partner then her. We are going to Marbella, maybe some of you have already been there? I have, and I really love the place.. 

And now you're probably wondering..... What am I going to do with my house? My cars? My bike? Or my dog?
I have already sold the bike .. My house has been rented out and I am goint to bring Malika to Spain. And my cars, I have choosen to keep the S4, but sell the Golf.
Because - In the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take! 
When I have some time off before I start work, Im going to visit France and Italy (after I move down there ofc).
And when do I move? Im moving 1st July !!!

Looking forward to sharing my journey with you guys!! 
Cant wait to show you my new apartment. 

Have a great weekend.
