Oxford

Day 1/2 Time to leave home for my short work trip to Oxford. Thanks to public funding, my union offers educational meeting once a year – and often it is cheaper to travel abroad than staying in Norway. As the plane to London leaves early in the morning, I was booked on the flight the…

A wet weekend in Bergen

Friday it was back to Bergen at the Norwegian west coast. Some month ago, I found some cheap airline tickets and the trip was booked. Leaving directly from work – hand luggage only – to catch the flight at 17:10. 45 minutes to Oslo and a 45 minutes layover before the 45 minute flight to…

Holidays 2019 – 21.800 km in the air

I know it is early… but I found some nice award flights an couldn’t hold back. As of today, my main holidays for 2019 are booked with one small “maybe”. It is an Easter holiday again. Best value for money/holidays. It will include stays in Paris, Calgary (Canada), Seattle, Portland and Chicago (all USA). But…

Another long weekend in Stockholm

When a friend of mine send a message that he was “homesick” to go to Stockholm it didn’t take long time to make a decision. We hadn’t seen each other in some years and we found a weekend we both had time – only three weeks from when we got the idea. After we both…

21.-22.7.2018 – Oslo

Again I found some cheap tickets on Norwegian to Oslo. Nothing special happening there. Just a weekend out in the city (again^^). Saturday morning is the worst day to get to the airport without a car. No bus and again – I want to save the money for a taxi. So bicycle it is. Leaving at…

13.-15.7.2018 – Trondheim and Östersund

Time for a city escape. That normally means, that I take a tour to Trondheim, which is only 3,5 hours drive from home. I have been there many times, so there is no pressure to see anything. I like to combine it with a trip to IKEA should I need something for my flat. After…

Some coming up trips this summer

Summer is here in Norway. Everybody is going on holiday, but I am sitting at work. That is what happens when you use most of your days off early in the year. No regrets there. But I cannot just sit at home and wait for everybody to come back. I want to have a little…

A weekend in Sørlandet

This weekend I have been visiting friends close to Arendal in the southern part of Norway. I have been to this region once before, but then I spend a rainy weekend in Kristiansand (not to mix up with Kristiansund – that is some 500 km north – so don’t program your GPS the wrong way!)….

Kiev – Day 4 – Kiev

Monday, Mai 21 2018 One man down again. The last evening was too long for Magnus. But the rest of us manage to get to breakfast at 10:30. A good breakfast is always a good start of the day. And what is the easiest way to get to a place in Kiev and the Metro is to…

Kiev – Day 3 – Kiev

Sunday, Mai 20 2018 Sleeping as long as possible we get up and down to breakfast at 10:30 with 30 minutes before they close. Nice breakfast. We are missing Lasse who took a late night – or should I say early morning. He is out of order for the moment. So we decide to give him…
