Summer in Stockholm

Todays post is some photos from a little trip to Stockholm  my friend, Jorunn, and I did a couple of weeks ago. The sun was shining and we really got that summer  feeling.

A trip to Lofoten islands – Svolvær

As a part of our summer holiday we spent a few days in the Lofoten islands. We rented a boat house in Svolvær (Svinøya). Svolvær is a beautiful town situated just below the famous rock formation “Svolværgeita” (the Svolvær goat). Svolvær is a popular place to visit for tourists from all over the world and a lot of them arrive with a Norwegian cruise ship called “Hurtigruta”. “Hurtigruta travels the Norwegian coastline from Bergen and all the way up to Tromsø.

We visited a few more places too, which I will write about in later posts. Meanwhile please enjoy the photos from Svolvær.

Sunny weekend at Ble (Norway)

Two weeks ago I went with my friend Ellen to our regular spring weekend trip to Ellens cabin at Ble. We knew the weather would be fine and warm after seeing the forecast but the weather was much better than expected. Temperatures at 28 C  and sun all day for three days is not normal in the norwegian mountains. We had a lovely summer weekend and spent almost every hour outdoors photographing and hiking with our dogs.

Have a lovely week!

Summer memory

Since the snow still keeps falling I find my self longing for spring and summer (sorry about repeating myself all the time ;-)). So today I found a photo from last summers holiday in France. A little street with lots of flowers in Cannes.

Have a lovely week!

Windows from Seillans

Now that autumn is here and it is foggy and rainy outside I think of the wonderful summer holiday we had this year. I think of the warm and colorful little villages in Provence with all the narrow streets and stone steps and old wooden doors and of course the windows. So to days post is summer memories from Provence, three different windows from the little village of Seillans.

Have a nice week!

Lavender fields – Valensole

A really beautiful place to visit when in Provence is Valensole. It must be one of the most photographed spots on earth. I guess you have seen beautiful photos of the large, dark purple lavender fields with a lonely tree or a stone cottage. It is an amazing spot with the color purple and the strong scent of lavender. I hope one day to go back and spend some more time in these fields and take some amazing photos. For now just enjoy my summer memory from the Lavender field in Valensole.

St Paul en Foret

The summer house we rented this summer was just outside a little french village named St Paul en Foret. One day we went for a walk to visit this little village. Some of the houses looked quite old and the photos in todays post are from this little walk. I fell in love with some of the details on and around these houses.

Seillans – a little village in Provence

Seillans is a beautiful village in Provence about an hour drive from Grasse. The little village is a nice place for a photo safari. A lot of stone houses, narrow streets and a church from the 12th century. There are also two good restaurants worth a visit; Chez Hugo and La Glorie de mon Pere. Both restaurants have  very good food.

Here are some photos from my visit to Seillans:

Mini trip to Amsterdam

I loved Amsterdam. It is a wonderful city and it is perfect for me because I am not very fond of going to different museums and other tourist attractions. My favorite thing to do is walking around and watch everyday life, relaxing on a little cafe and admire the architecture. Her are a few pictures from my mini trip to Amsterdam.
