About Growing Old

When you think about your own future, do you think you will grow old? I asked a couple of my girlfriends this question out of curiosity, and because I’ve given this a lot of thought over the years. Why? Because in my mind I have a tiny voice that constantly tells me that I won’t get very old. I have…

Sometimes Friendships End In Breakups

Friendship is a funny thing. Some last for years and years, while others for only a shorter period of time. Sometimes those who start out as acquaintances turn into friends, but other times it goes the other way around. Friends are so important to us all, but we also live out our own separate lives outside of the friendships that…

Why I Deleted My Dating Apps

So, it’s been three years since I had my last long term relationship. Three years of self-discovery, dating, heartbreaks, experiences, new friends, lost lovers and dating apps. But over a month ago, I deleted the dating apps on my phone, and today I’m going to tell you why. But first, let’s talk about dating apps in general. Did you know…

How About We Don’t Give Terrorism a Face?

The last few days have been painted in sadness by the horrible attacks in New Zealand and the Netherlands. There is no way to really wrap my mind around the evil and hatred behind these acts, and my thoughts go out to all the victims and their families❤️ You can help by donating here: United for Christchurch Mosque Shootings In…

One ride that I did not take the last time I was here was Soarin’. I had never even heard of it until this time around, and I didn’t…

Where Are You at 3am?

Usually I’m far gone into the land of dreams at 3am, but tonight I’m spending my night at a place that feels somewhat familiar to me, although I’ve never spent the night here or anywhere like it before. I’m spending my night at Oslo Airport Gardermoen. It sounds all kinds of dramatic, but it isn’t. I have a super early…

Get Lost!

One of my absolute favorite things to do when I travel is to listen to music, just start walking in some random direction (without the help of a map), and just see where that takes me. I love to get lost in new cities! We live in an age where we usually have our phones ready to help us out…

All the Good Vibes!

September last year I eagerly bought a concert ticket. Jason Mraz was going on a new European tour, not visiting Norway, so I had to choose between a few other cities in Europe. Another excuse to travel. Oh no, how sad 😜 I was torn between Amsterdam, Vienna, and Copenhagen. At a moment I caught myself thinking “What if I…
