We are going into the last month of autumn, the darkest and most miserable one. I have to admit I´m starting to feel the heaviness of shorter days and dropped temperatures. October was not to bad over all, so Ill try staying motived as November slowly surrounds me.


 

Walking dogs at the dog shelter have been a really great little positive happening.

 

Having good friends to talk to & social happenings with them

 

Beautiful weather, I have to say being back in Norway I´m really appreciating those blissful days with rays of sun gently stroking my face.

Hi lovelies

Happy weekend to everyone, I´m currently sitting at my mums kitchen table, enjoying some hot lemon & ginger water watching all the beautiful colours outside. I´m home for a long weekend, spending time with family, helping my granddad going through some of my grandmas personal belongings. I still have this kind of hope that she is just away for a long holiday, so going through her belongings, is suddenly making it all so real…

 

…..

 

The third autumn month is just around the corner, so layer up season are defiantly here and it is just getting colder. Jens took some really nice photos for me the other day, as the light was great, and all the colours were magical. Real autumn is one of the great things I´ve missed these past five years as Sydney autumn is nothing special.

“Coppers, golds, and rusted tones,
Mother Nature’s way of letting go.
They fall and gather one by one,
Autumn is here, summer has gone.

Crunching as I walk through their warm fiery glow,
Nature’s carpet rich and pure that again shall grow,
To protect and shield its majestic tree,
Standing tall and strong for the world to see.”

– Edel T. Copeland

I´ve been back in Norway for a little while now, and I´ve started noticing certain things that is different from my lifestyle in Sydney to here in Oslo. Therefore I figured Ill make a little comparison/likes/dislikes from each city. Everywhere has its ups and downs, somehow you cant have it all in one place. Probably one of the reasons we all crave change and adventure? Me personally are to restless to just be settled in one place, I already know that even though I love my country, I will not live here for the rest of my life. I would like to have it as a base, eventually buy property, then venture out to new places.


– SYDNEY LOVE –

The beaches, I do really miss the amazing beaches just a minute away..

All the great health cafes around

Affordable to go out have dinner and get drunk, without pre-drinking

The beautiful harbour

Almost no unnecessary plastic wrapping

– SYDNEY HATES –

The insane heatwaves during the summer

Peoples work ethics, not very impressive

Public transport, so so…

Bad quality on apartments & houses

 


– OSLO LOVE –

All the amazing nature so close by

Good public transport system

Having friends and family close by again

A intimate city vibe

Best living standards

– OSLO HATE –

Junkies and gypsies everywhere, government should organise this better

Food and drinks are so expensive

People still thinks it is all right to wear fur, disgusting and shameful…

WAY TO MUCH PLASTIC, I´m still in shock over the amount of plastic people are using here..


 

Over all Sydney lifestyle and Oslo lifestyle are quite different, but they both have great qualities, no doubt Sydney will always have an important place in my heart. Maybe one day Ill go and live there again, even if only for a short while.

If there is one thing I never can get enough off, it is nature. Beautiful untouched, wild nature. I´m so lucky to be surrounded by so much beautiful nature and have the opportunities to go and discover more.  I´ve left Sydney´s and its amazing coastline behind, I cant wait to spend some more time around mountains and lakes here in Norway. I love that I can live only a short subway ride away from the city and have all this nature around me.

Finding a state of mindfulness is different for everyone, being in and around nature always gets me to a state of mindfulness. Our nature are an endless journey of magical moments.

HOPE YOU FIND YOUR STATE OF MINDFULNESS SURROUNDING YOURSELF WITH BEAUTY LIKE THIS & DONT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.

Autumn is defiantly here, and I´m exiting to experience my first nordic autumn in five years. Going into a new season, I like setting some goals for the coming months. Setting goals makes your everyday life a bit more exiting and helps you stay on top of everything.

 

 

Spend time exploring Oslo, all though Oslo is pretty much the same as the last time I lived here. I have a different perspective on life and new interests. So exploring sides of Oslo that meets my interests is high on the list. 

……..

As always, exercise is important. the last few months have been very out of rhythm, so it is a goal to get back into good exercise habits again. 

……..

Spend more time with my family. 

……..

Keep my focus on work and internship, growing and challenge myself. 

 

What are your goals for this coming season?

Hi lovelies, it has been a long time since I´ve done monthly updates, as it has been a lot of travelling, moving and life changing events, I fell out of rhythm with that. All though August ended with grief and heartbreak, I still want to focus on the positives, life is to short. I also believe you are allowed to be sad and happy at the same time.

 


FAVOURITES FROM JULY


 

– I got to see my grandmother at home a few times before she ended up in the hospital –

 

 

– The Stavern Festival with all my lovely friends –

 

 

– Visit from Australia & going to Holland –

 


FAVOURITES FROM AUGUST


 

– Two amazing mountain trips with great hikes –

 

 

– Volunteering during Oslo Runway –

 

 

– The last time I went to see my grandmother in the hospital. I did not expect it to be the last, but that is life. Unpredictable. So I have to treasure that moment –

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.

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.
