Plan B.

If they would ask me: do you have plan B? Do you plan some universities, some schools or some moving out? I would say: no. I have to focus on what I have.

Kjølabergstoppen.

A free day, one of not so many, was covered with clouds (like many days this summer unfortunately) but we decided to still take a chance and go for a walk. We ended up on the top of a hill called Kjølabergstoppen.

We’ve moved out.

Again. But this time hopefully for longer than one year. I’m a person who moved out every year since I was eighteen, so I must say I have quite enough of that.

Running from the storm.

Warm and moisty days are for now over. One day came an unexpected thunder and took away all the heat, and also surprised us on a walk, which ended up in us running like crazy.

Hot & summery days.

It’s been a while, but for me, it seems like May was just a couple of days ago. It’s really shocking how the time flies, and suddenly we have full-blown summer.

May’s rain – a poem.

Rudolf Nilsen’s “Jeg hadde tenkt -” and “På stranden”.

One sunset – a poem.

From all the colors,
sunset picks the best ones.
It doesn’t steal them, but they
vanish as it goes down.
Closed in a moment,
in forever won’t be found.

I hope you guys are all healthy and staying positive. Or at least trying. If not then play the tune that I uploaded, closed your eyes and imagine you’re somewhere peaceful, the wind is slightly blowing and there’s nothing to worry about. Maybe that will help.

Thank you for reading and see you guys soon! Before I finish though, I would like to give a shoutout to two of the fellow followers because I’ve noticed, already long time ago, that they really support me, always first to like, even if the content isn’t always good. So New Lune and DirtySciFiBuddha thank you for your support.

Norway during the COVID-19.

I know this topic is everywhere right now, but I had to write about it, especially since there might be a lot of confusion or misunderstandings out there. And for the record, I have no profit from writing about it whatsoever. (I won’t write about symptoms and things like that, because I don’t want to repeat all the information’s already available. This is just a post for those living in Norway).

Hamar trip.

Our trip was just before the country decided to put everyone who has been traveling abroad between the 27th of February and the 12th of March into 14-days quarantine. As for today (when I’m writing this; Friday), we have to sit at home until Monday, so it’s not so bad.

Two poems by Rudolf Nilsen.

Why Nilsen again, you may ask? Well, I bought myself a Nilsen’s poem collection by Stig Holmås from 1975 and I like quite a lot of those poems. Why wouldn’t I translate them then? Here are the poems Møte and Fedreland from the collection På Stengrunn.

Blogmas 1: 30 days of no Sun.

Shortly about Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur in France.

It’s been a long time. I must say it’s hard to come back to writing posts after even a short break. If I won’t push myself to do it regularly, then it’s like there are no posts anymore. Anyway, back to the topic. The shorter name for this region is Region Sud (“sud” means “south”). Before I will start with travel posts about the cities that I visited on my holidays, here’s a short introduction.
