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 6: Insecurity.

I didn’t do any “deep” post in a while, and that’s because I have been quite under the weather for most of the time. However, this is a very important topic that I need to write about.

Blogmas 4: Back in Hamar.

So, I’ve asked for free last Saturday and luckily I got it. Because we never have free together like that, we decided to drive to Hamar to spend some time and in the evening we went to “julebord” (more about it later).

Blogmas 2: Nacreous clouds & amazing sunsets.

Not much is going on lately, as you can clearly see by looking at recent posts, but the weather outside is making up for it. Or rather, making the view.

Blogmas 1: 30 days of no Sun.

When people think about Norway, they see this cold, wintery land of aurora borealis and moose slowly strolling through the huge forests. Well, it’s not so far from the truth, besides that no one mentions non-existence of Sun or melting snow every few weeks because of possible global warming.

Black Friday? No, thank you.

Even though I’m in Norway, a country where prices make you quite a minimalist themselves, but still if you’re online, you get attacked by Black Friday.

Dublin, Ireland [1].

Ireland, (Éire in Irish Gaelic) is a big Island next to the United Kingdom, but it’s not a part of it. It’s important to remember that, because not everyone speaking English is actually from England and Irish people might find that offensive.

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.

A couple of days in June.

Våler & Hamar.

Right now in this part of Norway (East) weather is far crazier than it was last year. The constant change between sun and rain, thunder and clear sky is unbelievable. It’s hard to plan anything outside but I still managed to go to Hamar and for some short walk in Våler.
