spanish weekend with a twist.

So Ana had her cousin and friends over for the weekend. Was feeling a little anti-social and not in the party mood at first – except for thursday night, when they arrived and I was so tired that I slid right into party-mode.


everybody’s dancing and Nico surprises us with his accordion skills..

On Monday, after their camping weekend, we went to Bryggen, then had lunch at Pygmalion, walked up Fløyen, acted silly, and had dinner at Nicola’s in town.

high on life

so the past days (actually, pretty much since roomie came back) I’ve been on a crazy sugar high, meaning I got very little sleep but a lot of sunshine – it’s still cold out, but sunny enough for us to decide to spontaneously make churros and enjoy them for breakfast outside on the grass snow.


churros and coffee!


blankets, a perfectly blue sky above our heads..


frida, revisited

partylove

ah, the joy of facebook picture-tags – someone I don’t know just uploaded this. yes, I am very in love with that man. and no, I obviously don’t mind the fact that he is a trizzillion years old.

Easter

I got a little chocolate bunny from Ana so that made Easter suck a little less.

(I really wanted to not be stuck at Fantoft, be in Oslo or Stavanger instead… well, I guess you don’t always get what you want.)

Happy Easter!

Finse, 02 (day by day)

Sunday, day one:
after almost missing my train (I arrived at the station exactly seven minutes before my train left) and the raised eyebrows of the couple sitting with me in the train after I accidentally dropped the milk container into my cup of coffee, I got to Finse. Getting off the train I felt a little confused, because all there was around was the platform and a hotel. a few little houses scattered here and there but nothing else. I heard two girls speaking english and recognised one of them, carrie, because I’d checked out her website the previous day. Anyway, turns out that both carrie and laura were going to be in the snow sculpture workshop; we were given the key to the steinboliger – our home sweet home for the week – and dropped off our bags into our rooms. I, of course, picked the crazy room with the broken lock, no drawers, but a nice view on the frozen, snowy lake…


I lived at number five :)

we had to wait for everybody to arrive, and it was already 6pm with dinner scheduled at 9, so we bummed around the hotel lobby (where our base/hangout would be for the rest of the week) sort of getting to know each other.

Monday morning started off at 7:30am, with breakfast at 8, a little discussion about our expectations for the workshop after that, and then we got our skis (yes, the only way to move from one place to the other was to ski..) and went for a ‘walk’ around the area.


gorgeous

By tuesday, I’d already decided that I was going to build an igloo!


work in progress


dinosaur-igloo!


the igloo lit from the inside..


pretty dinosaur


dino head. I want to hug him!


candle holders in the snow.

Oslo, once again

My wonderful trip to Oslo included:
hanging around town with my huge backpack and almost no sleep on the first day
a 15-hour shift at By:Larm
wonderful dinner cooked by Tyge and yours truly
lots of margitlove
Munch museum
kind of looking for Munch’s grave but then being too tired and hanging out on a bench at the cemetery instead
eating cold fried tofu rice outside some library
meeting too many spanish people
lots of gigs
FREE BEER on my last night at Mono


this is not a junkie


this is not a junkie sitting next to a girl who can’t smile and looks retarded on pictures


I almost slipped on the ice and fell on my ass to take this picture

Oslo is ugly, but it’s cool to hang out. I love the area around BlÃ¥, it reminds me of Camden Town, in a good way.
