The Botanical Garden at Tøyen is the perfect city escape. It was established in 1814 and is Norway’s oldest of its kind. I hid there for a few hours one Thursday morning, longing for spring.
A new year often comes with high expectations. It´s a clean slate. I have decided to fill mine with more of all the things I love, like books, films and music. As far as New Year´s resolutions go, 2020 is my favourite.
Oslo is not a noisy city compared to others, but I still enjoy quiet adventures on my own. Like when it´s raining, most people stay inside. And then there are events that attract people regardless of the weather, like the Fjord Oslo Light Festival.
It´s the last days of summer, and what a summer it´s been. Balcony office, city wandering and Island hopping in the Oslo fjord. Everything is easier in the summer. I spent the last weekend of it in the lovely Palace Park.
