Okay, I may not be a big fan of winter sports. Never went to the Alps for some skiing during winter holidays. The only “winter” sport I have enjoyed myself ever since is ice skating. But, thanks to my university, I know now, that there’s much more to enjoy.
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.

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!
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?
My wishes may be one day too late, but better late than sorry – I wish you all happy women’s day, or in Norwegian: gratulerer med dagen, kvinner. But how was it celebrated in Hamar?
The author of The Birds (Fuglane) and The Ice Palace (Is-slottet) is mostly known for his novels. However, not only he wrote novels, but also multitude of poems, such us Regn i Hiroshima, and Det ror og ror, whereas I translated myself the first one.
