Best Vegan Enchiladas in Oslo?

As a vegan I often get asked where I like to go out to eat in Oslo, and if I had to choose just one place to recommend it would be nordvegan!

Tattoo and Poetry – A Different Evening

Today I experienced something a bit different. I went to a community building in Oslo called Stampen. They had a relaunch evening for the cultural center in Brugata 12, Oslo.

You Are What You Love, Not Who Loves You!

Back in the day, when I was a kid, I had so many plans for my future. I had plans to be exactly where I wanted to be by the time I was 25, and I would not even think about starting a family before that had happened. Needless to say, things didn’t really go as planned. I’m pretty sure…
