We’ve been living in Oslo for a bit over a year now. My husband and I are keen foodies. We love going out to restaurants. We enjoy cheap and cheerful joints as well as fancy 3 Michelin starred restaurants. This time, my husband was tasked to book a place for our…

Hi everyone I can’t believe it’s been a whole month since I last posted on the blog. So much happened in the meantime: I got pneumonia, again, I went to Las Vegas and WordPress release its 4.5 version with major editing and publishing tools improvement! My trip to Las Vegas…

As mentioned in a previous post, it’s not that easy to find places to eat at lunch as most restaurants only open for dinner, from 3pm. For us, lunch is much more convenient as we can bring the kids along on week-ends and it allows me catch up with friends and…
