It's been a month since I arrived in BERGEN.. I arrived by train from OSLO. It felt kind of nice; it was by train I left BERGEN seven years ago when I moved to OSLO, so in this way it somehow felt like a circle being closed. 

I feel like a different person now than I did then, if I had not, I never think I would have moved here again. Looking back I remember that when I left I knew one thing for sure; I would not move back unless I had found love. At the time I left BERGEN I had been single for a year ..and I felt like every guy I met had already fooled around with, had sex with or been in love with someone I knew or at least knew of.. and my guy friends were hooking up with all the same girls. In short; I came to think of the Bergen dating scene as quite INCESTIOUS. I remember this one moment I had some months before I left; I ordered a BEER in one of my favorite BARS and as the bartender handed it to me I realized that even though he didn't know me and I didn't know him I knew at least four GIRLS he had hooked up with/ been together with over the last couple of years. In that moment I realized that I could never return to this city, unless I was NOT SINGLE. Even though I am not single anymore, a lot more things would have to fall in place before I felt ready to come HOME. I still don't know if I am completely ready, but I know it feels good to be back in Bergen. I can't wait to get to know the city again and find my new place in it. Not only as the child who grew up her, but as the grownup I have become. As we settle in more I will share with you more of my plans and thoughts around this whole move. 

This last month has been so hectic; finding an apartment, moving in, getting a job to pay the rent. Life has changed in so many ways in such a short time. It's exciting and scary. Even though I have not been that good at blogging lately my move will not mean the end. It is kind of like this; when my life doesn't have a form, my blog doesn't either.. but as I said; my life is definitively coming into place ..and I am guessing that the blog will follow.


  1. Aw, welcome back to your home! It must be a mix of crazy cocktail feelings but yet so comforting. Changes are scary but exciting and it can be hard to restart, so wishing you all the luck. The pics show a very nice cozy home with a beautiful light. Good luck to everything!

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment, you pinpoint a lot of what I'm feeling these days. The apartment is very nice with great light ..and to me a good home is the route to happiness so I am optimistic!
