I now have 2,354 people following my Pinterest boards. Thanks everyone ! Humbled.
Has it been so long since my last post ? Wow ! Time sure flies.
Summer has passed and autumn has arrived. In August I was hired to work on a project for 6 months at the Biomaterial Lab at the University of Bergen. In September, I switched employers in the hope of being a substitute teacher in high school. This past weekend, I and Amanda (an American Fulbright scholar I am advising/helping at UiB) went to the Interior/Design Fair at Grieghallen.
Back in February I opened a Pinterest account as a way of saving all the stuff I like on the internet. Never did I imagine that I would have more 500 followers (most of them follow my Amazing Cars section), so I must be doing something right. Thanks to all my followers ! If you have the time stop by my Pinterest page.
Location: Coral Gables, Florida. Price: 18 million dollars. It’s got everything including being in the perfect spot but the interior could use some updating, it’s 2012 not the 80′s.
What makes this house even more unique is the observatory. Imagine having your own private observatory.

Summer has finally arrived in Bergen. That means vacation, birds chirping, sunny & warm days and traveling for most of us. While we’re on the subject of vacation, what are your plans this year ? The roads in Norway fill up with trailers, housing either Norwegians or non-Norwegians. I never understood what was so cool about spending summer traveling in a trailer but times have certainly changed. Take a look at these trailer interiors (and exteriors) and tell me you still don’t see the charm.

Today is a very sad day for Norway, with the loss of the Olympic silver medalist in swimming, Alexander Dale Oen. I am still in shock. How can this happen ? Why ? We will miss you and never forget your reaction after the July 22-terror day. My deepest condolences to your family and friends.
Rest in peace, Alexander !
Easter vacation is next week. For most Norwegians that means traveling to a cabin, either by the sea or in the mountains/forests. Skiing, relaxing with family and friends, eating dinner by a fireplace, finally reading the book/e-book you got for Christmas, are some of the things one can do during Easter. The people owning this chalet in the Alps must really enjoy their place. It “reeks” of coziness and relaxation. The pool looks inviting and adds an unexpected element.
Don’t know about you but this looks like a dream home to me. I was drooling at every picture, trying to imagine the feeling of being there. But then again this is South Africa, I am not very keen on warm climates. I hope they did address the issue in some way. Lots of pictures.

My favorite places in the US are Nantucket island, Bar Harbor and Rhinebeck. I have nostalgic memories from the first two places. Nantucket is such a fabulous place to live, I would love to move there permanently, if I could. Anyways, here a house on that island. The bed looks so inviting, I would sleep like a log. The large glass tiles in the shower have such a pleasant and soothing color. The entire place is sensibly decorated with the right pieces and colors;nothing is out of place. I hope you agree !
