Lofoten – Ramberg beach, Sakrisøy & Reine

img_2716small

I’ve come to the last day on my vacation in Lofoten this summer. Previous days can be read about here, here, here and here.

My flight back to Oslo was scheduled to leave at 7 PM. Since the airport was only a few minutes from where I stayed, you could see it from the terrace, and it’s VERY small, I only had to be there like 40 minutes before takeoff. That meant I had quite some hours to spend before I left.

The beach

IMG_6810small

Last year I went to the Netherlands again visiting my friend Chantal. Visiting her have become a yearly thing. The weather was so nice, we decided to bike to the beach again. Chantal lives in Alkmaar, 45 minutes north of Amsterdam. As the year before we decided to go to beach at Egmond aan Zee, it’s only a 30 minutes bike ride away.

As you can see it was sunny day, with a clear blue sky and it was warm. The sand was hot, too hot to walk barefoot in and it was the right amount of wind to cool you down a bit and play with kites.

Magical Stockholm

290713- 115sStockholm, oh Stockholm. I just love that city. I instantly fell in love with it the first time I visited it 6 years ago. Only this year I got to visit it again, not a day too soon. Stockholm isn’t as small and cosy as say Gothenburg and not so down-to-earth. Gothenburg is where the averge Swede lives. I feel like lots of the people in Stockholm is a bit above the average. Stockholm is a city I would take weekendtrips to, but Gothenburg is a city I could see myself live in.  I don’t mean anything negative about this, because I love Stockholm so much. There is something magical about Stockholm. Something that is hard to explain what actually is. It just feels so close to my heart.

Exploring London

070613-106s

While being in London in May, I took a lot of photos. So far you’ve seen photos from the London Eye and Hyde Park. I also took photos while we visited spesific areas like Covent Garden, Chinatown and Camden and just random places we went to. When photographing I wanted to capture some of the essensial things about London / England, so I took some photos near Buckingham Palace and Big Ben, but I also just captured random things.

I would have to divide this into two posts, just because there is quite some photos I want to show you. Here are the first batch:

A walk in Hyde Park

070613- 362textOn our last day in London, we had to be out of the apartment hotel at 11.00. Since there were no reception, there wasn’t any place to store our suitcases – we had to bring them with us. Walking around with our suitcases wasn’t very practical, so we decided to do something easy. We went to Hyde Park to spend our last hours in London there.

Hyde Park is a huge and pretty park. I wish the weather would’ve been a bit better so we could’ve enjoyed it even more than we did. If we had more time and hadn’t our suitcases with us, we would’ve rented a boat and taken a trip on the (artificial) lake (the Serpentine).

Up in the air

190513- 001stextWhen I’m out flying, the worst thing is to be placed in the middle seat. Especially if I’m flying solo. I always hope for the window seat so I can watch the sky, clouds and earth as the airplane flies from one destination to another. I never pay extra to reserve seats in advance though. It costs too much in my opinion and it’s not worth the money. When I get my boardingcard it’s always a bit exciting to see what seats I’ve got.

If the weather is good, I always bring out my camera and take some photos. I love the cotten-like clouds, even more when the sun shines on them.

On my travellings this year I’ve been blessed with the window seat a couple of times. There has also been sunny weather. That has resulted in the photos below. New this year, is that I’ve also managed to photograph the ground (fields, islands, houses, lakes etc). The three last photos is from the Norwegian coastline, the east coast.

Ready – set – GO!

Tomorrow I’m starting my Easter holiday. Plans are made. I’m going to see my friend Chantal in Alkmaar (the Netherlands). While packing, which was very hard because I never know what to bring, I thought of doing a ‘what’s-in-my-bag’ shot.  It’s been a while since I’ve done one.

So this is what I bring my bag when I travel tomorrow:

  1. Travel documents. OSlo – Amsterdam – Oslo
  2. Book by Henning Mankell. Awesome writer! I love him.
  3. Wallet.
  4. Sunglasses. Lets hope they will be used a lot :)
  5. Painkillers. Just in case.
  6. Blisters plasters. They can come in handy.
  7. Passport.
  8. Tiny wallet with some Euros and keys to my suitcase.
  9. Notebook.
  10. Keys.
  11. Green hair elastic.
  12. Pens.
  13. My phone.
  14. Brand new Creative mp3 player with music like Ulf Lundell, Lisa Ekdahl, Glasvegas,  Gaslight Anthem, Bruce springsteen etc.
  15. Crossword magazine from last year. If I’m not in the mood for reading, I can do some crosswords.

I will be away for six days. Six fun and awesome days! Not much is planned yet. So far I know we’re having a movie-night, going shopping, eating at Henry’s or Intermezzo (where we eat every time I’m there), maybe visit Chantie’s dad and mum & stepdad, going out one evening… and we’re def. going to do a lot of haning around.

Of course I’m brining my camera and I hope I will be able to take a lot of photos. I’ve packed an extra memory card, my 50 mm lens and the 18-125 mm lens.

Hopefully I will come back when Easter is over, with lots of cool photos in my suitcase.
