I’m currently at Oslo Airport Gardermoen, having breakfast and doing a bit of writing while I’m waiting for boarding to open. Last time I wrote a post from the same place as now, I was headed to London. This plane is bringing me to London too, but this time around I have a transfer flight for a much longer trip. This time I’m headed to somewhere I haven’t been before to see someone I haven’t seen in a long time!
I’m headed to Austin, Texas!
It feels like forever since the last time I was onboard a plane, even though it’s only been a little over three months. That urge to travel is just growing and growing, and I’m very excited to finally be back at an airport, knowing that I’m about to head somewhere new. There’s something so utterly special about the airport atmosphere. It’s like you can feel the excitement in the air, radiating from all the other travellers. And that very feeling feeds me with energy and creativity. I write a lot when I’m at home, but the urge to put words onto paper/screen grows so much stronger the minute I’m on the go and surrounded by other adventurers who are headed to all kinds of places!
Traveling with British Airways will be a new experience for me as well (I don’t think I’ve ever traveled with them) and one thing I’m really curious about, is the food they’ll serve. I’ve requested vegan/vegetarian on my flights and from what I’ve heard it’s usually either a hit or miss. Crossing my fingers for a hit!
My camera is along for the ride, and there will be a Texas video up on my YouTube channel when I get home.
Wish you all a wonderful Thursday and hope you get to go on your own adventure, even if it’s just a minor one! Go out there and make some new memories to treasure!
It’s grabbing a hold of me every day now. A plane flying by over head, the smell of coffee, that glimpse of sun, hearing foreign languages and watching strangers faces. Pretty much everything I see these days, reminds me of everything I’m missing when it comes to traveling.
I haven’t been away for a proper vacation since my family trip to the US in 2015, and that seems like a lifetime ago! Three of my closest friends and I went on a minicruise to Denmark a few weeks ago, but that just made it even worse. It was like being able to smell the chocolate cake, but not really biting into it!
I find myself going through Airbnb, Couchsurfing, Booking, TripAdvisor and every possible airline company site, and daydream myself away.
By now it actually hurts a bit, that’s how bad I want to go on a new adventure at the moment. The tug wont let go of me, and I’m pretty sure the only solution is to pack my backpack and go out and find one!
But that’s not really an option right now. Work, family and money are just a few things that’s in the way between me and my next trip. But I’m not here to make excuses for myself. I’m here to put the promise out there. The one where I promise myself that I will do everything it takes to go on that writing trip to Amsterdam that I’ve been thinking about for a few years, and I will do it next spring. I want to rent a cheap houseboat, only bring my backpack with clothes and writing supplies, drink red wine and write on deck while the sun goes down!
This is me, making a promise to take myself on a vacation! Soon my dear self, we will be sitting on that plane you see up there! Soon!
In April I went on a vacation with my mom’s side of the family. Our trip started out in San Fransisco, then LA and Las Vegas. This trip was a huge reminder of just how much I love to travel and explore the world. To see new places, get to know new people and watch the beauty of diversity.
This was my second trip to the US and I loved it just as much this time around. The people are so much more open and easy to talk to. If you talk to a fellow stranger (Norwegian) here most of them would immediately be uncomfortable and question your sanity. But when I travel I like to make new friends and get to know their lives as much as I can with the little time that I got. So screw you sanity and stranger danger! Hello happy stranger word exchanger! And we did get to know a lot of interesting people! And see some amazing places! I will be posting a video from the trip as well so be on the look out for that on my YouTube channel!
There’s no doubt about it that we are a curious species and I realized during my trip that I need to explore more. (Explore More! See what I did there?) But I don’t have Bill Gate’s wallet or his private jet so my exploration possibilities are a bit more limited. So I’ve decided to explore more (I did it again) around me! Oslo has a lot to offer and I haven’t even seen half of it, so I’m going to start exploring my own town. And some other places around here in Norway whenever I have a chance. I’m going to make it into a journey. Some of the exploring will be on my own and others will be shared, but either way I will share them with you guys 🙂
So what do you say guys? Want to explore with me?
