Trandumskogen (Trandum Woods)

One of the great things about living in Norway is the numerous places you can go for walks. There is always a park nearby even in Oslo. In the community where I live in, Ullensaker, a monument was made in honor of the men and women who defended Norway against the Germans during the second world war. After the war, it was used as a training camp by the military.

Saying Goodbye to Summer

It has been a wonderful summer. I am sure a lot of Norwegians would agree with me on this. I am glad we stayed in Norway this year. Last weekend, we have been lucky that the weather was perfect for a little trip on the fjord.

Strømstad is a cozy little Swedish Town where we can buy cheaper cigarettes and wine (Hehe) and half the people you meet are norwegians.

The most enjoyable thing to do after fishing is sitting by the fireplace and enjoying the stillness of the night
