I’ve been thinking a lot about travelling lately. I’m going to Britain in august, but except from that I got no plans. As long as it’s summer in Norway I’m good, but I desperately need a “get away plan” for the winter months. Luckily I have some time to save money until then, even though times goes by fast as he**. What’s up with that? It was 2015 yesterday? However, I think I’ll manage to live less lavishly until October/November-ish. Does any of my readers have any tips and tricks for travelling on a budget? It would help me a lot. I can gather all the best ones in a post too, so that you all could benefit from it.
After a long journey through airports and hours in airplanes, I can finally say that I’m back in Norway. It was quite a stressfree journey compared to my other flights back and forth to america, considering that I only had one stop in Amsterdam. Thank god! Amsterdam is one of my fave airports too, so that helped a lot. I’ve really been feeling Amsterdam the times that I’ve been there so I’d love to actually explore the city. I’ve never heard one person say anything bad about that place. One day I’ll fly back down there to visit properly.
I also bought “The Alchemist” the day before I left – a book that I’ve been trying to get a hold on for over a year now.. Finally, it’s mine! I’m already halfway through the book and so far so good! A lot of good wisdom in it.
^The view over my hometown, Hell Norway. Yes, I actually come from Hell. Don’t mess with me. 😉
The first thing that met me when I walked out of the luggage claim was my mom and little sister waiting for me with a mango smoothie from starbucks. How sweet is that? Refreshing to drink something fruity after hours of airplane food and coffee..
Now I’m going to pick up my car, finally!! I’ve been missing my mercedes so much!
Today we decided to try out a poledance class. It was my first time so I had no idea what to expect. At first when we arrived the studio we were welcomed with a great atmosphere and service from the staff. The interior was very girly and princessy, which I loved! It for sure gave me the right type of mood before the class started. It was a lot of stretching, some strength excercises and some practice with the pole. Note that we’re both beginners here, so I can’t brag about any advanced tricks or skillsets. BUT it was fun! I loved it and I will definitely do more poledancing as soon as possible!
After our class we decided to end the night with some refreshments from Starbucks. I chose green tea latte with almond milk (instead of dairy) and Maddie went for iced tea with berries.
If you haven’t tasted the green tea latte yet, your missing out!! It was amazing!
Hola! Me and Madison started the day off at the gym today, the best way to start your day off! I tried the stair machine for the first time and I get the hype around it now, I get it. If you want your feet to burn, go find yourself one of those!
After going to the gym we decided to explore uptown Minneapolis.
We found and amazing eating place called Tao’s food, with a lot of vegan deliciousness and nutrition. I decided to go for the strength smoothie with hemp protein, in addition to their radiance juice. It tasted marvelous.
It was a sunny and awesome day and I could’ve written a lot more, but the wifi here is not reliable. I’ll end the post here before it all gets deleted!
I arrived Saint Paul last night and slept in a guest suite in their apartment complex. It’s really nice and luxurius here, I love it!
This morning Maggie took me out to explore what the city has to offer and showed me two unique stores that sells essential oils, sage, jewelry and so forth. It was really nice and interesting!
Thereupon, we went to a vegan restaurant and ordered food -salad for me and vegan burger for her, which was delicious! For dessert I bought green tea with hemp milk, that I enjoyed in the sun.
After that we went to a vegan market and she showed me around downtown. It has been a wonderful day, with good energy.
Later tonight I’m going to Madison to visit her too, I think it’ll be fun.
Only two days left of my Minnesota year! I’m going to watch Julie’s and the rest of the seniors graduation on friday and after that it’s straight to packing and leaving. I’m going to spend a week with Maggie in Minneapolis afterwards, and I can’t wait for that to happen. It’ll be a lot of fun! May 13th I’m going back to Norway for the summer. I’ve been craving Norwegian nature, fresh air, water and food for so long! Coming back to it will sooth my soul tremendously.
What are your plans for the summer?
