Yesterday was so beautiful, wintery, magical and after all really sunny, that I thought – why not go out and take some nice pictures. I don’t have any specific equipment, but I took some nice ones, just with my phone. It only proves one thing – you don’t need much to do much. So, enjoy my pictures from Hamar.
So, you may or may not know, I’m really into photo manipulation. I love Adobe Photoshop and programs like that – but don’t get me wrong, I like natural photos as well. However, when in lack of good quality camera, you sometimes have to use some tools. That’s how life works.

We started our second day with tour guide through Nidaros Domkirke (Cathedral) which we managed to get for free (because of some misunderstanding). However, for students the price is 50 NOK, so if we had to pay, we would do that, it’s not that expensive.
In my last post about packing for a trip, I didn’t mention where I will go. So here you go, Trondheim, Nidaros, Kaupangen, City of Kings. Located in the North-East of Norway, in the Sør-Trøndelag county.
It’s… small. Really small, about 30,000 folks live here. But some people say that small is beautiful, and they’re absolutely right. In Norway you probably can’t find an ugly city, it’s just impossible. It’s like – å lete etter en nål i en høystakk – looking for a needle in a haystack.
