Norway is nature’s paradise. It is admirable how Norwegians value their natural resources, despite the growing urbanism in the country. They love nature so much that they have plenty of walking paths in the woods, and they prefer the quiet life in “hyttas” or cabins located deep in the forests most of the holidays.

Woot! Maerose here. This entry is probably very long overdue. 😛 I’d still give it a shot though. Carl and I were still dating, and most of our dates involved endless walks and tours and geocaching both in the woods and in the city. I remember the first time I told him about geocaching, sure, he … More NORWAY: Geocaching in Drammen in cold February

The lake is a … More Into the (Norwegian) woods

Woot! It’s been a month since I posted an entry here. I have lots of travel stories to share and to blog about, but life always gets in the way! But now that I’m taking a break from the languge school and just waiting for my next travel plan, I guess I have some time … More A long ‘spasertur’ in beautiful Bærum
Woot! Happy autumn! While waiting for beautiful colors to start spreading across Norway, let me write about this nice little town in Denmark called Birkerød. Here lies Trudeslund, the co-housing village (bofælleskab) where I lived with a Danish family for 11 months. BUT I’d write about Trudeslund in a different entry, as I have limited … More That pretty little town called Birkerød
