Vlogging, creative writing and dreams not pursued

When I first started blogging, it was because I like writing. Creative writing, that is. I feel that this is a hobby/skill/talent I have slept on. What I mean is, I did not pursue or make it. With practice my writing could have gone somewhere and I could have done some serious writing and perhaps…

A brief trip to Oslo

I’m always happy to see snow! ­čîĘ­čî║ As long as I’m warm, that is. I was about to say this was the first time I went to Oslo by myself, then I remembered I did take a work trip there in August last year. It was a 24 hours in-and-out trip, I get better at…

Nidarosdomen – Norway’s grandest cathedral┬á

Nidarosdomen is the northernmost medieval cathedral in the world, and it’s the site of the coronation of kings in Norway. You can see the cathedral’s peaks from almost everywhere in Trondheim.
