Leaving.

I left Norway. Not for long, for some months, to finish my education in Poland. But if there’s anything to say about that is that’s extremely hard. Period.

Week in Palma de Mallorca [4].

Besides the trip to Ibiza, the best day of the whole stay in Spain. Birthday, beach, city tapas, fancy restaurant. Another fully-packed day. If you haven’t read the previous one, it’s here.

Last days in Norway.

My last days in Norway weren’t spectacular, because my whole stay in Norway was more than amazing. It was just cozy, melancholic and way too sad for me to handle. But it had to happen one day so it did happen. Of course I’m coming back to Norway, but for now, I have to go.

Take care of your mental health.

We’re busy. We have work, school, food to cook, clothes to wash. And then we go to bed and we can’t sleep because someone didn’t call us when we wanted. Because we suddenly feel sad at some words we have heard. Then we fall asleep and the cycle goes again.

Week in Palma de Mallorca [2].

Before I will jump into the subject: I have quite a big dilemma. The number of pictures I have and things to tell about what happened is too much so I will make four or five parts of this (haven’t decided yet). First one and this one is already up, there will be few more from Mallorca and last one from Ibiza, where we went during our stay. Maybe in between, I will post some other type of post, I will see.

I’ve changed & thank you for 100!

Week in Palma de Mallorca [1].

I mentioned previously that I went to Spain, to Palma de Mallorca (also to Ibiza, but this later), and I have quite a lot of material from there, both travel journal and photos. It’s hard to fit 7-8 days in one post, not even in two so I will divide it into parts. This is the beginning. Enjoy!

What does it mean to be happy.

As I mentioned in post about traveling, I’m away in Palma de Mallorca, and unfortunately I didn’t have time to schedule anything for this day. So this one won’t be too long, just couple of thoughts around the subject.

How to find a job in Norway.

I was meant to write about this topic ages ago, but this one of those articles that takes a lot of thinking through. And for a quite long time, I didn’t have work myself, so I couldn’t even touch upon it.

Why do we travel.

We’re living in an era that’s completely possible to live your entire life in one small or big city, without leaving its borders. But why some of us refuse that facilitation and decide to cross the city and our borders?

Let’s talk about podcasts.

Podcasts are, in simplest words, one, two or more people talking about a specific topic. It’s usually just audio, but more often you can find audiovisual ones, f.ex. on YouTube. But what is special about that? Sound like quite a normal thing, isn’t it?

Being in bad place mentally.

A walk to Haslemoen.

On a fine morning of last Saturday, I went out. I was in Våler back then, and there’s a really nice walking/cycling path to Haslemoen (and maybe further, I don’t know), so I said: why not. And I haven’t been on a lonely walk for a quite long time.

Food for thought // what’s up.

It’s no firework or Sun that makes a day brighter, it’s the smile that wasn’t given which makes it darker.

Sorry for not posting for a while. I’m currently in the process of moving out as well as organizing things, which made me not able to keep up with a schedule from July. Although I must say I’m quite proud of myself I stuck to the plan almost the whole month (I think one Saturday was without post), so at least that.

There are two blog posts coming this week, so stay tuned! And definitely one more next week, after that I will see.

Have a nice week guys!

Summer in Norway.

Midnight Sun. Sunsets that lasts longer than a single quarter. No crickets, therefore silence covers every night (that’s not a night). People with way too big pieces of luggage filling up every train, no matter the direction. Summer in Norway.

Challenging yourself.

The Vigeland Park, Oslo.

I was in Oslo a few times. Firstly, I believe, two or three years ago, a completely spontaneous trip with my friend, sleeping at some couch surfer’s place, trying to explore the whole city in two and a half days. Then another one, when I have been already living in Hamar, for a karaoke night with friends, then for a job interview, for a walk through main streets… but never went to Vigeland before. Now I ask myself, why?

Why I stopped playing computer games.

I mean not stopped playing at all. When I have done everything I wanted during the week, and it happens to rain and storm outside, I may put on some good ol’Sims 4. But usually in my life, especially this year, there are enough things to do. I mean, who will wash my dishes and wash my clothes, if not me?

One year on Wordpress.

Yes, that’s how much time has already passed here for me and you, readers. If, if there’s someone since the beginning of course – a glass of champagne for you! I don’t know how to feel about this, but I’m kinda proud of myself I still keep writing. I used to have such a slash in the pan for a lot of things, just start everything with tons of ambitions and next week throw it away as it doesn’t matter anymore.

Glad I stick out with this platform. It’s such a good thing to have your corner on the internet. And thanks to all my readers, those long-time ones and those fresh, hope my writing isn’t the worst! I always try to improve it.

Have a nice rest of the week! New post coming tomorrow.

One day in Kristiansand.

A plain city, where every road heads to the North Sea (or just water). Kristiansand wasn’t necessary a place I had to visit, besides the fact that I knew that’s one of the cities that lies in the most south of South Norway, I didn’t know anything about it. For a small, seaside city, is it worth visiting though? Continue reading “One day in Kristiansand.”

Preikestolen.

When you think about Norway you usually see fjords. High mountains that quite harshly fall into a deep, dark and bendy river that goes miles into the land. Trolltunga and Preikestolen are two places most known for their view on this specific scenery and I was lucky enough to be able to experience Pulpit Rock. Let’s dive into the mysterious beauty of Lysefjorden pearl.

Two days in Stavanger.

A colorful and summery city on the West coast of Norway, the beginning of Norway fjords (from the South direction). The main destination for those interested in the Preikestolen (the Pulpit Rock) hike and Sverd i fjell (Swords in Rock). Long story short: a unique town. I spent more than two days here, but one of the days was almost entirely on the Preikestolen hike, so I didn’t count it.

Norwegian band #3: John Olav Nilsen.

Winter sport in Budor & NSB campaign.

Walk on a frozen lake.

No one ever wakes up and thinks: today is the day I will walk on a frozen lake. From the early childhood, we’re told that the frozen lake is the most dangerous thing in the world and you could die, drowning in the cold ass water. But I don’t really think Norwegians were told the same as me.

Easter in Norway.

Enjoy!

Afternoon in Oslo.

Recently I got a chance to visit Oslo again – this time for a job interview. However, since the tickets are so expensive, I decided to arrive a little bit earlier to visit some places. The day was cloudy and windy, but it wasn’t too cold, so I could walk around, take a bunch of photos and not freeze to death. Here’s the outcome!

Ways you can be more ecological today.

When I was writing the post about minimalism, I was thinking a lot about its ecological side. As I wrote – you buy less, which therefore results off less waste etc. But what can you do to be more ecological in one day, rather than in long-range timeline, with choosing good quality products that last a long time?
