I haven’t posted for a while, sorry about that! Looks like it’s because I’ve been blogging quite a fair bit for work so I don’t have the drive to blog for my own blog anymore. It has to change though. So let’s start with amazing pictures of Oslo in Autumn…

Visiting Oslo over a week-end A month after my high school friends came to visit me in Oslo, I had the pleasure of hosting Karine. Karine is a friend from Zürich. We used to be part of the same dance class and even performed Cancan together! She arrived on a…
