And at the beginning of September I am going for a week to Bari with some friends of mine- CANNOT WAIT.

A lot of Italy traveling so I really want to take two weeks to Costa Rica to do some surfing in October/November- should be absolutely doable πŸ™‚

Yay for traveling!!

Easter back home

Easter back home

Easter is one of my main family holidays (Christmas being the other), and apart from a few I have always spend Easter at my mothers cabin in Lyngen just outside of TromsΓΈ where I grew up.

Lyngen being one of the top selections of free ride skiing in the world (totally subjective of course…) I always find tremendous peace and the opportunity to really recharge my batteries being back there.

My mother has insisted in keeping the cabin without electricity and water, so heating the cabin with the fireplace and getting snow to melt for water to wash the dishes, really means that ones focus is being shifted for a few days.

This year I was so lucky to be accompanied by my friend and her husband, which just made my yearly Easter- getaway even better.

As the cherry on the top we even had AMAZING weather the entire time- what more can one ask for?

I mean, you cannot ask for anything else than this view!

Even had the time to read a bit, LOVE the Napolitan novels by Elena Ferrante. I feel they give me a bit better understanding of Italy and the cultural bias.

Can’t wait til next year again πŸ™‚

Last day in Rome this time around

Today my mom and aunt went back to Norway and my bf came to Rome to say hi to them and spend the day with me ❀

When you go to Rome, you have to get the Tiramisu from Pompi- just sayin’!

 

Sooooooo cute yellow Fiat 500 anno 1950
My love for chairs is being fed ❀
As always we go to La Montecarlo (thanks Alessio) to eat, this is the bill written down on their paper tablecloth… always a pleasure!

Rome // Roma

I went to Rome to meet up with my mom and aunt who came for a weekend.

Started the first day with a seightseeing bus, booked tickets for them to go to the Vatican museum today (btw- if looking to book tickets- book from an android phone- 10€ cheaper…) and ended the evening with some aaaaaamazing food and wine at a restaurant recommended by my fantastic boss! 

Totally hungover today, but off we go to enjoy Rome πŸ™‚

Skiing!!! Val di Gardena

Skiing!!! Val di Gardena

Lovely weekend in Val di Gardena with my sister-in-law and her friends. They all came from Norway on Saturday afternoon, so I went up there, skied on my own on Saturday and then skied with them on Sunday. OMG the weather was amazing, the pists were great and the company were world- class.

 

Look at this bouquet of women!
Up on the mountain ready for the day

Happy me!
Happy campers! Sent this to my mom, she was so happy
I mean.. LOOK at at this!!!

What I’m reading…Β 

Went on a loooong drive this weekend (3.5 hours up, 5+ hours back), and before I went up there I downloaded a new audiobook to listen to-Outliers.
I LOVE this book, I generally love books though- but this one- ah, explains so much!! And let me just write- I need to start working on one thing – entitlement (in the positive meaning of the word).
Much recommend reading! 

Skiiiiing- finally!!Β 

Skiiiiing- finally!!Β

Happy me!!
