After a somewhat dormant period, we’re reviving the blog for our upcoming honeymoon – starting today! The trip will take us to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia over the next four weeks.
We’ve just kicked off our Italian week with a simple but tasty three-course meal: Prosciutto ham and honeydew melon as a starter. Two types of pizza for the main course; One with PRosciutto San Daniele and Buffalo Mozzarella. The other with spicy salami and Portobello mushrooms. For dessert we made pistachio ice cream with chocolate sauce and […]
When Helge turned 30, he got a sous vide-circulator as a birthday gift – and this has become one of our favorite kitchen gadgets. It allows us to prepare super-tasty chicken, spare ribs, pulled pork, game fillets and pretty much everything else the heart and tummy desires, without having to keep an eye on the […]
After having read Kjetil Kvien Madsens post about being a tourist in Oslo, and seeing the pictures he’s taken, I got inspired to do another photo-cycle. This time I wanted to take some pictures at just before, during and after sunset, since that’s not something I’ve done in Oslo before. I cycled down to the Trinity […]
Yesterday evening I took my bike and my Fujifilm XT-1 camera and the XF 23mm 1.4 lens down to Bjørvika. This is an area of Oslo that’s undergoing a massive change, going from industrial harbour to a beautiful harbourfront.

We don’t only travel, hike and shoot photos – we also love to cook. This summer, Helge came up with the idea that we could do weekly food projects throughout the late summer and fall. The thought was to get to know different continents and countries through their cuisine, and since we’re bound for Southeast Asia for […]
Besseggen is a ridge in Vågå municipality, four hours drive from Oslo. It’s the most popular mountain hike in Norway, with more than 30’000 visitors every year. As part of our mini-honeymoon, we decided to become two of these visitors. The Hike Most visitors opt to take the boat (Gjendebåten) from Gjendesheim to Memurubu, which is […]
I recently had the pleasure of visiting a few major cities in USA; New York, Las Vegas and San Fransisco. Although this trip was mainly for work, I managed to sneak in a few hours of photography. New York This was my first trip to New York and it’s a city I definitely want to visit again […]
We decided to spend a weekend as “tourists at home”. In preparation we read both the official Oslo-guide and Rick Steves’ book about Scandinavia. Below you can see some pictures from that weekend. They are all taken with the Fuji XT-1.
After having visited Rome last year, we knew that we couldn’t go to Italy without spending another few days in this amazing city. Since we’d already covered the main sights on our previous trip, we didn’t feel as much of a rush repeating it on this year. Below are a few of the highlights. St. […]
