Wow… For the first time I’m starting a post and I don’t quite know what to say. As I told Michelle from The Travel Wench earlier today, I find it quite mindboggling that anyone reads what I post at all, but now I guess I know someone does… I have received nomination for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from both The Travel Wench and Travelling Book Junkie(!) Thank you guys, I’m so very grateful for this :’-)
I have to do my part for this awesome honour, so here goes! According to the rules for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award here are 7 statements about myself and 15 fellow bloggers that I have gone on to nominate. Read More

It’s a typical situation,
In these typical times,
Too many choices

I wanted to go back to New Zealand for my next trip. I still do. It’s a matter of finances at this point. I don’t have the money I need for the type of trip I want right now… I’m still hoping I will somehow manage to save up enough by the end of January, but until then I’m looking at alternatives.
My Plan B was to go back to France, but this time doing a 4 week language course in the southern parts. For the warmth and a chance to get my French back on track – it’s been bollocks since I graduated the Norwegian equivalent of high school. This is also a financial issue, the course will take a substantial part of my limited budget… And it requires me doing schooling during what is supposed to be my holiday. This isn’t such a major deal breaker for me as I think the school will be loads of fun, and as an added bonus, they hold courses in Montpellier, close to my Bucket List location: Carcassonne. So we’ll have to see… Read More

I’d love to be popular in Barcelona. That sounds like a fun job.
DURATION: 3 days
INFO: Everybody get up! And walk! A lot! For my birthday this year, my room-mate gave me (and herself) a long weekend in Barcelona. We left early morning Friday and came home past midnight Sunday (so technically, I guess it was Monday).
FAVOURITE PLACE: I didn’t stay in Barcelona long enough to find a favourite spot, but I really loved the narrow side streets (yeah, I know, stop harping on about them). The little shops, cafes and restaurants… it was lovely.
I RECOMMEND DOING: If you’re only doing one thing in Barcelona, I would recommend you walk down the narrow side streets for a good long while and find a little tapas restaurant a bit off the beaten track Read More

On our last day in Barcelona La Sagrada Familia was at the top of our list. We had bought tickets online the day before and found out that the signs for “Caixa” that we’d seen 600.000 of while walking around the city were the very machines where we could get them printed. As luck would have it, one of said machines was embedded in the wall of the building opposite our hostel, haHA! Read More
