Austevoll

Late August I went with my family for a relaxing weekend to Austevoll, an island outside of Bergen on the west coast of Norway where my parents have a nice, old cabin that is currently undergoing renovation. Getting away from the city is really great sometimes and your entire focus shifts from noise, cars, people,…

Gamle Bergen

Being from Bergen I tend to stick to my usual places and not really “re-discover” my city whenever I am here. But seeing as I have been here for a few months without knowing whether or not I would be staying for much longer I decided to take the opportunity to check out new sites and…

Vinjerock 2017

Pride 2017
