B/W COPENHAGEN

September 2015, Kaja took me on a surprise trip to Copenhagen. She had planned the trip for a long time, but wouldn’t tell me where we were going. So fun! It was a really nice trip – but we figured out at the end that we actually just had gone around in circles and hadn’t seen that much of the city as we thought, haha. We got to eat a lot of good food, did some shopping, just walked around and went to «Tivoli», which was fun! One thing that really surprised me was to see all of the people who used a bicycle, and all of the bicycles that was parked in the streets. Amazing! 

HOW GOOD YOU WANT TO BE

My new clock(love it) and new book, «it’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be», which is a handbook of how to succeed in the world. Got it from my best friend this christmas, thank you KJ! I’m almost finished with it, but it is a book I can read a thousands times through out my life. It really motivates me – which is the point, haha. So, 2016, I’m ready. 

SWEDISH SUMMER

A little throwback to the swedish summer. Once a year(at summertime) we drive to Sweden to visit our family – for those of you who don’t know, I’m half swedish. Normally we’re there for about a week, but this year we decided to stay a little bit longer, even though things didn’t go quite as planned. Me and my sister were actually going to have a little road trip so we could see more of Sweden and not just stay in Gothenburg(like we always do), but, of course, I managed to get sick, so we just stayed in Gothenburg the whole time. Went to Liseberg, did a little bit of shopping and through out the 2 weeks we stayed at different familymembers, which was lovely.

 

WHEN IN ROME

April 2015. I had finally turned 18, and my second trip this year was together with my class. We went to Rome! I have to say, what a beautiful city. Absolutely amazing. Though the food could have been better, haha – we always ended up at the wrong restaurants… And my foot was hurting so bad during the whole trip. I had my crutches with me, because I couldn’t walk at some point, and I actually ended up  sitting in a wheelchair while we were at the Vatican Museums. But, the pain didn’t stop me from admiring the wonderful city and the art. Wherever we went it was something new to stop and look at. And the apartment my group had was amazing – which made the stay even better. I wouldn’t mind another trip to Rome.

BACK TO AUSTRALIA

March 2015, and it was time for the first trip this year, and I were headed to Australia for two weeks together with my dad and sister – it was time for her graduation in Adelaide, and well, I couldn’t stay at home and miss the whole thing. We spent a couple of days in Adelaide first, where we got to see the city, ocean, ate a lot of good food AND we went to a Wildlife park, and I got to feed Kangaroos! Finally got to meet Skippy, haha. After my sisters graduation, we packed our stuff, were back on the plane and The Sunshine Coast were our next stop, which meant – tan time. It was lovely to spend some days by the ocean, just relaxed and enjoyed the sun and the view(aka boys). But once again we packed our stuff and out last stop was Sydney. We saw the Opera house(of course) and we actually watched an Opera play, Aida. It was really amazing. We thought about visiting the place where Home and Away is being filmed, but the weather wasn’t that great, so we dropped it, which I regret now.. But other than that was the whole trip wonderful! I really hope I get to go back one day – there is so much more so see.

Have you ever been to Australia?

AROUND THE WORLD

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

I have travelled a lot this year. More than usual. I’ve been to different cities in Australia, Rome, Oslo and some other places. I absolutely feel lucky for having the opportunity to travel and see the world. Because it is SO much to see out there. Norway is beautiful, no doubt about that, and i love Bergen, but sometimes it’s good to get away from this place.

But, what I wanted to say is that, since I’ve travelled so much this year, I thought I might write about all of the places, and I have a lot of pictures to show you. Sounds good? 

 

PANASONIC

I got so inspired from the documentary I watched yesterday, so I’ve decided to start using our(my dad’s) old camera, the Panasonic C-2000 ZM, yes, fancy name. So glad it’s still working! It has just been laying in my room for decoration, haha, but not anymore.

THE REALITY OF EVERYDAY LIFE

“Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life” – Bill Cunningham.

One of the best documentaries I’ve seen in a long time: Bill Cunningham, New York. This isn’t just another fashion movie. No. After watching this I just wanted to start living my life. Get away, and take my camera with me. Ah, such an inspirational man. Bill is a fashion photographer for New York Times, and I must to say, he’s absolutely not like any other man or photographer. Anna Wintour said – «we all get dressed for Bill». He has documented New Yorks´ streetstyle for decades. Bill only cares about the clothes, not the people wearing them. It’s all about the fashion. God, if I ever meet this man, I just wan’t to give him a big hug(the same if I meet Tom Hanks, haha).
