If you ever

go to Baku for shopping – Park Bulvar is the place to be. It is a great shopping mall – for me it was like being back in America having a proper food court, cinema & a fun land for the kids.

What I really liked was how close it was to the harbor and Bulvar. The Bulvar is almost like a boardwalk with carousels, cafes and benches. It´s where Azeri people gather at night to drink, eat and be merry.

I think I spent most of my days there. 


Is back

again. It has been so great to be traveling again! Baku has been amazing. Lovely that I could go just because of the Eurovision Song Contest.

I´ll update with more from Baku! Here´s a little treat to enjoy. All of a sudden Roman Lob was at Hilton, when I was there. He was kind to take time to give me this memory.

Miss the warm weather for sure.

Have a great Thursday!

Traveling soon again

There´ll be less frequent updates in the upcoming days. I take to morning flight down to Baku tomorrow. It all depends on the computer availability.

I have still to believe that I am going down there, it feels like a dream. But it´s very cool, and cool indeed to have more sun & new people to talk with.

Most things are now under control, and the travel butterflies are swirling around. 

I wish you all a great weekend when it comes. Here´s a summer greeting from Gothenburg. Can´t believe it´s so hot outside.


Thank you for the nomination

Yesterday I got nominated by theflamboyante for the blogger´s sunshine award. Thank you for the honor. It´s wonderful to get in touch with bloggers in all kinds of ways.

Blogging is much more fun when there are lovely people to chat & to exchange thoughts with.

The rules are that I am going to nominate ten other bloggers in return.

Since you are nominated you might want to know what to do next. Here it goes.

° Include the Award’s logo in a post on your blog
° Answer 10 questions about yourself
° Nominate 10 other bloggers
° Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs letting them know they have been nominated
° Share the love and link the person who nominated you

1. My favorite color :  This is pretty easy to answer. Blue it is. I have a passion for the ocean & it´s variety of blue.
2. My favorite animal : The Lion. It´s such a gorgeous animal.
3. My favorite number : I have three numbers – 1, 7 & 11.
4. My favorite drink : Water
5. Facebook or twitter : Depends on the mood. Facebook is great to keep myself updated on the family. Twitter on the celebs.
6. My passion :  Traveling. I just love it & chocolate cake.
7. Prefer giving or getting presents :  I think it´s great both giving and receiving. You learn something from both. It´s important to have the ability to appreciate a gift & to share in another persons joy when giving.
8. My favorite pattern:  I actually don´t have a favorite pattern.
9. My favorite day of the week :  Friday. Mainly because that is the day I lounge with pizza & soda. When I do that I know I have accomplished things during the week, with the notion that I can relax with good conscience.
10. My favorite flower :  It´s not my favorite flower, as I have many. But the lily of the valley is a gorgeous flower. I was always excited when I found one when I was younger.

I´d like to pass on the love to the following wonderful bloggers. It´s because I´d like to give you a little something of the nice kind in an everyday life. Many of the nominates are people who I personally know, and who are hardworking & dedicated. Since I only had 10 to nominate there are of course other blogs that also fits this description.

I nominate:











It has been fun to get to know all of your blogs & learn that there are people with equal & different interests. I learn so much by reading what others think.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.





Vote for Norway & Tooji

Soon back in Gothenburg. It´s been wonderful with a few days back home. Glad that it´s only three weeks before I am back in Norway again.

Before the return to Norway I am in three days flying to Azerbaijan to see how it goes with the Norwegian contestant – Tooji, in the Eurovision Song Contest.

He is not only a singer, but a model and an employee in the Children´s Welfare System. Not a bad resume to have. Hopefully he´ll secure a few points. If your country is participating in semifinal 2 on Thursday don´t forget to vote for Tooji 😉

I would´ve voted of course if I was allowed to do so.

I am really looking forward to enjoy the grand final live in Crystal Hall. It´s still quite surreal that I am going to be present, but very cool indeed.

I am prepared for lots of sightseeing, music, sun & people.

Home <3

Really enjoys being home at mom´s. There´s nothing I like more than that. I walked in the forest earlier, played with my niece & nephew, ate strawberries & just relaxed.

It´s good that I am getting more time with them during the summer when I´m moving back to Norway – at least for the summer.

They give me so much joy and happiness. 

A hug is never just a hug when it involves two of my favorite people.
