A lot have happened in this year. I visited Dublin in Ireland with a friend, went on a solo trip to Bergen, got approved for the Erasmus program, went to Norway, and then Trondheim, Hamar, Oslo, Lillehammer…and met so many amazing people through out the whole year, especially abroad. I’m not making this post to show off – because my life isn’t perfect, however, I just wanted to highlight all the good stuff that has happened to me (okay, I also want to show some nice pictures, I must admit).
As the winter has come, the snow covered up Norway from every city to every village. It melts down from time to time, but it’s only a glimpse to make it all white again. Some cities are more receptive for snowing and among them is a small city called Gjøvik. It’s located on the top left side of Mjøsa. The city is even smaller than Hamar, however, still has its own beauty to it. Here’s some pictures I took recently.
It’s Wednesday, middle of the week, middle of November. Oslo is already dressed up for Christmas. The bells are hanging up through the main part of Karl Johans gate, which is the most famous street in the capital of Norway. And this is where I spend those few hours with my friends.
I present you finalized film, which I mentioned before. It’s not much – but it’s my first video that I edited myself and I’m kind of proud. Enjoy.
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.
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.
