Since I’m going for a 4 day trip in the following day, I thought it would be the best opportunity to share with you guys my way of packing. Usually I’m really minimalistic, and my friends are always shocked how small are my backpack etc. So here’s my secrets for 3-4 day trip.

As you move in a new land, you are full of excitement and happiness. You think: “this is it, this is my new start” – which isn’t far from the truth, because it’s clearly something new, a new life you might say.

On 17th september there was really nice and family-friendly event in Hamar, Domkirkeodden, and here’s short photo reportage of it. There were horses, ladies with their coffee and cakes, playgrounds for kids, old houses opened for visiting and many other things. Enjoy!
