So here it is … the last (and belated) of my posts on our recent trip to Norway! This makes me sad…. because now I feel like the trip is really over (haha!). Norway is a truly incredible country  – I mean, I’ve been able to squeeze SEVEN blog posts out of a two-and-a-half day […]

My first AirBnb experience – was it worth the hype?

Since becoming a ‘sort-of’ member of the travel blogging community (I’m trying to get into twitter at the moment…It’s such a great way to chat to other bloggers.. but it’s also a platform that I’m not that naturally drawn to….. which is weird…. because it’s the one social media platform where I feel it’s okay […]

Road-trippin’ through the Hardangerfjord in Norway

If I had one piece of travel advice, it would be to rent a car whenever you can. Sure a group tour can save you a few pennies, but the freedom that comes with your own set of wheels is worth the extra splurge! We recently travelled to Norway for a long weekend with our […]

The morning after our hike to Trolltunga we ignored our aching muscles and started a second hike in the Hardangerfjord region to the Buarbreen Glacier. The photo above is the view from the parking lot – the glacier was such a striking shade of blue! The first part of the hike took us through a […]
