Booked Tickets 2 My First Trip

HEY! I am sincerely so happy right now. But, first thing first. I haven´t been able to blog recently because of school work, and it´s constantly on my mind. I will try to update the blog as often as I can, and of course there will be a lot of exciting things on my page in the summer times!!!

So. My first trip this summer is actually booked. AND, I am soooo excited.

The place I am going to is….. (drum rolls)……

Tenerife!

This is not a place I have had in mind at all, but I just stumbled across it, and now I am going. I´ve read that this is a typical tourist location, but, my dear readers, I found a hack. It´s said that the north coast of Tenerife is very crowded with tourism, the east coast on the other hand, not that much. There are mountains I can hike, hidden natural beaches, small fishing villages, and there´s a volcanic cone.

Have you been to Tenerife? Any tips on what to see etc.?

Autumn Leaves

Hey!

Last Monday I was back to school, which is okay, but I don´t got as much spare time anymore. Therefore, my blogging is a bit reduced at the moment, but I have some cool posts that I am working on so stay tuned!

In Norway the leaves on the trees are already starting to become red, and yellow. The sun has more or less flew away, and the wind is super cold. Personally I like the autumn, but I cringe when I think about what comes after this beautiful season. Winter.

Here are some pictures to honor the autumn.

WANDERLUST

Ah. I am sitting on my room in Norway which is ALREADY starting to be cold. On my speakers I am bumping full volume with travel chill out beats. I can feel my wanderlust crawling under my skin, every atom, every cell in my body wants to get the heck out in the world to explore, and having an adventure.

This year has been a very boring year for me, and especially this summer! But, I am just waiting for next summer because then I am finally going out on an interrail which I have planned for several months now. I can´t wait, although I have to for one more year (buhu). I just hate the ordinary life,  I guess it sounds weird, but I do not want to spend my days at a desk from nine to five. I do not care about the money, it´s okay for me not to be rich, as long as I can do what I love, and thats traveling, exploring, get to know new people, and different cultures.

Well, when I am done with school I am planning on taking a year free before starting on the university, and use it for traveling. And who knows? Maybe I will found a whole new path to walk after traveling for so long? I certainly hope so…

PS. I am working on a new short-film that will be posted on my blog! It´s from some of my hiking trips this summer, it just need some editing etc. I love working with visuals, and this is my first video ever, but I hope it will turn out good:)

Top 10 Islands to Visit

Hey!

I thought it would be cool to make a category on my blog that is named “Bucketlist”. I first planned on doing a post about it, but then I quickly found out that there are so many different things that I want to do, and places I want to see that it would be better to split it up into different posts.

In this post, as the title says, here are my top 10 islands I want to visit!

The Galapagos Islands: 

Since I was a kid I´ve completely fallen in love with this place. It looks so beautiful, and tropic. There is also a bunch of rare animals living at Galapagos, and well, I love animals so it seems like the perfect place for me.

Hawaii: 

Well, to be honest it just looks amazing here, and there is no better place to learn how to surf. There is also an abandoned hiking track here that I want to visit, it is called “the stairways to heaven”. Many people says that it´s very dangerous, and thats also the reason why it is forbidden to hike there. But it looks amazing, and I know that some day, I will be walking those steps.

Bora Bora: 

This is a small island located in the South Pacific, northwest of Tahiti. It has these sand islets around, and a turquoise lagoon with coral reefs surrounding it. Therefore, it is a super place for scuba-diving. This is also kind of a luxury place, so I have to save some money to go here, but I will someday!

Bali: 

Oh my god, Bali. Known for its tropical forests that is located on volcanic mountains, the super pretty beaches, and of course, coral reefs. There are also many different temples etc. there which would be so cool to see.

Tenerife: 

You have probably heard the song, Tenerife sea by Ed Sheeran. Well, I had actually never heard about Tenerife, but I had to check it out after listening to this song. I liked the place right away, and it quickly took a place on my list.

Santorini: 

This is a greek island, and a thing I want to do is go island jumping in Greece because my parents did when they were younger, and they don´t regret it. But, Santorini is an Island that stands out because I was here when I was younger, and I have this special love for this place, so I would love to get back there soon after all these years.

Borneo: 

This island is located in Asia, and has the most amazing rainforest, as well as beaches. Like Galapagos there are many wild animals there like leopards.

Vancouver Island: 

From tropic islands, to a bit colder climate. This island is located in Canada, and is a popular destination for biking, hiking and camping. The wilderness there is fantastic I´ve heard, and I love to hike so this is absolutely a place for that.

Sardinia: 

Back at it again with the tropical islands… This island has amazing beaches, actually a coastline on 2.000 km. But it is also a nice place to go hiking because of its landscape with mountain like areas, could not be more perfect!

The Maldives: 

Wow. This place got the wow-factor. And I want to go there before it is to late (sadly), because of the climate changes it could be under water some day. Just imagine living in a bungalow here!!

So, that was my top ten islands! There are many more, and maybe there will be a part 2 of this, haha. None of the pictures displayed in this post are mine, I simply found them on Google, just so you know.

Favorite Travel Playlist

Hey, how are you?

I want to thank everyone who follows this blog kind of thing, it means so much to me! To please you I would really like to know if there is anything that you would like me to write about, it could be things like my recent trips, top 10 lists, experiences I´ve had traveling so far etc. Just comment below!

Anyways, I thought it be cool to make a different post this morning. Since I am a huge fan of music, and then to it all the time I found out that I could share my current travel playlist. When you are on the road it is so important with some good music which sets the mood.

Here is my current travel playlist, you have no idea how chill it is to listen to these songs while driving, sitting on a an airplane, or a train.

 

 

GREEN IN OSLO

My city, Oslo.

I took a walk here the other day, which I love, because it is a really small city, so you can almost walk wherever you want. There are so many things to see in Oslo, like, there are all these different people, restaurants, rivers, parks, and even the ocean. The city is devided in very unlike parts; there is one place where all the hipsters live, and goes for shopping because of the amazing shops you can find there (like vintage shops!). A bit further east there are many foreign people living, and there is a good quantity of small vegetable boutiques there, and many different clothing shops which have clothes from other cultures.

If you go down to the docks by the ocean, there is really high-end with expensive restaurants, but also many food trucks which is super cool. And the docks there are super fancy, and so beautiful. I would recommend to take an ice cream here from one of the food trucks, and enjoy it while watching the ocean, but keep an eye on the seagulls, because they are known of being crazy! (they once stole my ice cream).

Oslo can also offer a huge amount of different architecture, if you are interested in that. To be honest, there is a lot to see in Oslo of course that I have not mentioned here, but that is because I have written about the things that I appreciate about my city, and notices as I walk around.

Anyways, here are some pictures I took while roaming around in the city I love!

 

The Mountains

Okay, so me and some friends of mine rented a cottage in a valley surrounded by all these majestic mountains, and we quickly decided to climb one of them. So, we went a little of track, and hiked a mountain that there was no marked route on. Very exciting, but also a bit scary when you are afraid of heights.

Anyways, here are some of the photos I took, it looked even more beautiful in real life of course. I do not know the name on the mountain, but it is located in Norway, Hemsedal.

 

INTERRAIL PLAN

Hey!

First of all, I want to thank for all the positive feedback that I´ve gotten on my posts, to see people liking my posts makes me smile. This was one of the reasons why I started this site, so I could share my photographs, and thoughts with others, and of course get some sort of feedback. I did not expect that I would get it so fast, and I´ve already gained a few followers, wihu!

Second of all, I have made a more detailed plan on how I want my interrail trip to be. So, after going through different countries, things to do in them, and what I wanted to do the most I was left with fourteen destinations.

This is how I think my trip will be:

5dad31af940b021d51f2f93e63c3dc6e

I found a site named interrailplanner.com which worked excellent! I just simply put in the date I thought I would be traveling, and then started typing in which cities I want to go to, then it automatically finds out how long the train ride will be, and you can find hostels etc. to stay at directly from the page! Super easy, would recommend for all of those who are planning an interrail.

As you can see I will take the ferry from Oslo to Copenhagen, and from here my adventure starts.

Berlin: This is the second city I will visit, and I plan to stay here for two nights. I know that there is a lot of museums, and historic things to see here, like the Berlin wall. So in Berlin there will be plenty of sightseeing.

Amsterdam: Next stop is Amsterdam which I´ve planned to stay for one night even though there is a lot to do there too. I will definitely visit Anne Franks house, but I will probably roam around in the city with a bike.

Antwerp: This is a place I am hyped to go to. The reason for this is because a direct train from Antwerp will take me to  the “Tomorrowland” – festival! This is a huge festival with super famous, and great artists. So I will stay in Antwerp for some days because of the festival.

Zurich: After partying it´s time for some beauty, and there is no better place to discover that than Switzerland. I have been in Genévè before, so I decided to go to Zurich this time because I have never been there, and people tells me that it is sooooo gorgeous there. I am planning on taking a scenic train ride here, it is a great way to see the fantastic nature Switzerland has to offer.

Zagreb: Croatia baby! Zagreb is one of the cheapest cities in Europe, and I am on a budget (some times I seem to forget) therefore I will visit this city to save some money, and it is a really good place to stay because a direct train to split goes from Zagreb.

Split: …And that takes us to Split! This is one of the destinations I am looking the most forward to. It has breathtaking beaches, nice weather, yummy food, ah I can not wait! Here I will get my tan on, and relax. I have heard that there are some nice walking paths here to, so maybe I will do that to (if my lazyness does not kick in.)

Venice: After my chill days at Split, I will take of to a bigger city, Venice. I feel like this is a city I will eat on many different small cafes for some reason, and of course take a boat ride through the canals.

Rome: Departing to an even bigger city, Rome! My grandmother has been here many times, and she has fallen in love with it. Hopefully so will I.

Cagliari: Till this point, the train has been my ride. Now I will take the ferry as my transport, and I will first set sail for the island, Cagliari. This is an island in Italy, and I am not planning on staying here for long, and I have never heard of the place but I want to check it out, it can´t be that bad?

Palma: Then I will keep the ferry as my driver, and set over to Palma, a Spanish island. This is also a place I have never heard of, but I found it easier to cross the ocean to Spain, than taking the train all the way round.

Barcelona: Finally I will set my foot on land again, and it happens to be in Barcelona, a coincidence, don´t think so. Also one of my top destinations at this interrail. Well, what can I say, it is Barcelona. A beautiful city that offers about everything from art, history and beaches!

Madrid: I have been many places in Spain, but I never been to their capital, so I got to pay my visit. I´ve heard the nightlife here is great!

Monaco: My last country, but not destination. Monaco is the next city, and here I will live my life on a yacht and in full glam. Well, probably not, but who knows?

Paris: My last city, Paris! Here I will spend the rest on my money on clothes, before I will be heading home.

This is how my interrail trip looks for now, but there are so many places I want to visit, like Montenegro so there could be a change in plans, but then I will just update you on that later!

Are there any of you that know of any things I should see in any of these countries, or tips on hostels, restaurants etc. please leave a comment, it would make me very happy!
