Hi lovely people, it has been a really difficult past couple of days… My amazing grandmother have been struggling with cancer for a few years, and this summer she got really sick, very sudden. It has been a tough two months, of her being in the hospital, not getting any better. Saturday evening her body gave up and she passed away. Thankfully my grandpa was there with her. It is going to be a tough time, after being so much away the last years, I was so happy to finally be home, ready to spend more precious time with her.. It is hard to accept, someone you had such a close relationship with, all the memories, and now there will not be anymore.

I´m so sad, and I´m not yet ready to accept the reality, all though I have to be happy that she is no longer suffering, cause being stuck in a hospital bed is no life worth living.

 

Thank you for all the love and comfort.
Thank you for all the joy and laughs.
Thank you for all support.
Thank you for all the trips.
Thank you for all the love.

……….

 

I´ll try to keep updating a few times a week as usual, all though I´m taking a day at a time. We are also moving into Oslo this weekend, so it is a lot happening at the same time.

Hope you are having a lovely start to your weekend? We have been back and forth to Oslo this week again, as we are in the middle of applying for jobs, interviews and apartment hunting.
This trip from Wednesday to Thursday were a combination of all three, also including helping out during Vanessa Rudjord x ByMagMaLou´s runway show, which was a lot of fun, and I received a nice little
goodie-bag as a thanks for helping out.

We also saw three apartments, one that we liked a lot, so we are making up our mind this weekend if we are going for it. We still dont have jobs, it is a bit of a risk moving in already, but it is also becoming a bit exhausting going back and forth from Larvik several times a week. This apartment was just perfect. I also have a few interviews which is making it more exiting going forward. Back in Larvik again for the weekend, joining a family party and catching up with some friends, just enjoying the calm small city life, cant complain with a view like this.

I´m in on my way to Oslo again, dropping of my aussie friend then Jens and I got a few appointments today, then working for a local Oslo brand tomorrow morning, for their fashion show in corporation with the “Fashion week” here in Oslo. Fun to take part of the show, and slowly get into the industry here in Norway. It is slowly going towards autumn, new season and new opportunities. Crazy how fast the summer went?! All though I cant complain as I´ve had holiday since I finished my studies three months ago.

……….

I´ve really been loving the denim look this summer, a bit different than what I usually go for, but it is always fun to try new things right? Denim and blue hues also suit the summer time, especially when you spend time on the coast. I´ve also had all my clothes shipped to Holland, then from Holland to Norway, so my choice of clothes have been narrowed down.

Hi lovelies, we had such a busy but great weekend, with Jens´s dad and girlfriend visiting us from Holland, it was a very short visit this time around. Jens´s dad were so kind to offer to drive all our belongings over to Norway, as it arrived in Holland due to cheaper shipping costs from Sydney. We have not moved to Oslo yet, so since it was such a brief visit, we decided to stay around Larvik, showing them local places.

 

……..

 

Tomorrow I have a friend / x-work mate from Sydney arriving, so another two days of sightseeing and fun coming up for us. Also some more exiting things coming up this week, which I´ll give you an update on later on.

Last weekend we had a great trip to Dovre National Park, doing two full day mountain hikes experiencing all kinds of weather; rain, snow, strong winds, a bit of sun and fog. We also encountered Musk Ox which there are only 300 left of in Norway, so that was very special. We did not get any decent photos of them, unfortunately.

………..

Norwegian mountains are a must see if you come to Norway, it is amazing how the nature and landscape changes across our the country.

Hi Lovelies

Hope you all had a great weekend? We went up in the mountains again, with stunning hikes and scenery. I´m a bit behind with my blogging, so will share some nature photos later this week.

…………

How beautiful is this courtyard? Holland have several of these “hidden” little gems, and they are all hundreds of years old. The one we are visiting here is in a city south of Holland, called Breda.

Hi lovelies, I thought I wanted to share something important with you today, as I´m constantly trying to live a ethical life, and also stand for all the choices that I make. One thing is to say you do something, another is to actually do it. The past 5 years have been spent travelling and living abroad, so I´ve seen a lot of pollution, rubbish, poverty and tourists taking advantage of being in a foreign land. I know for a fact that travelling can have a negative impact on the environment and it´s surroundings, therefor choosing to make some better choices while on a journey is very important to me. We try to chose the transport that has less of an impact on the environment, support local business and always leaving a place or a country in a good way.

………

Our oceans are extremely polluted. This was my main focus on my recent travel through Asia, as it was shocking to see how much waist are in our oceans, I can not just stand by and watch this. I dedicated time to clean plastic from the beach and from the ocean, even if you only pick up a few pieces of rubbish you are still making a small difference, being a good example for others to follow suit.

Hi lovelies

It´s a rainy Monday here today which is perfect for blog updating reminiscing about sunny days exploring Holland and a bit more serious; job & apartment research, slowly accepting that our to long holiday is coming to an end & new exiting times are starting.

….

Holland is very picturesque, which makes it more fun to take outfit photos and just photos in general, after living in such a new developed country like Australia it is great to be surrounded by old architecture again.

It has been two great weeks in Holland, creating better relations with family in-law and dutch friends. Moving home to Europe will make it much easier for us to build our relationship with everyone on this side of the planet. Holland is only a short flight away for us now, and so is the rest of Europe;

NEW ADVENTURES & DIFFERENT CULTURES

Visiting many different little cities and towns the past few weeks I´ve come to really adore the dutch canals, one of the characteristics of Holland.
