2 Aussie girls with British citizenship , foreign husbands, drinking French wine in Norway listening to American music





I have just returned from a weekend trip to Oslo, with a girlfriend from my hometown who I met in London 10 years ago and worked with in Brisbane 4 years ago.


As we sat in a bar in Norway, drinking French wine, listening to American music, we thought about our foreign partners we left behind and thought about how small,crazy and diverse the world can be.


We got off the plane headed straight to buy wine, threw it in the back pack like a good Aussie traveller would do and off we set.


Oslo as expensive as it was, welcomed us with beautiful weather, deliciously amazing food, and a great city to explore.



Cobbled streets, old beautiful buildings, and a funky buzzing nightlife in a city in summer that doesn’t really experience the night.





After a day of walking around exploring, we left our hotel at 9:15pm with our sunglasses on our heads, with the sun still quite high in the sky.





We walked around the streets looking for something we didn’t know existed in reality as it did in our hopes…..

A vibrant part of town with music, people, restaurants, bars and that buzz you can’t quite explain.

As we walked towards the river we headed towards a steady stream of people convinced we were on the right path.

When we arrived my dinner search was instantly forgotten as dusk seemed to appear out of nowhere; the sky turned a pale shade of orange and an almost full moon shone brightly beside a castle.



Could there be a more perfect scene for my eyes to see?

Summertime in Oslo means darkness appears only for 3 hours – a concept that blew the mind of a little girl from



2 days in Oslo, eating fresh seafood, drinking and exploring with a beautiful friend of mine has sent me into a euphoric state.

Traveling it brings together so many parts of so many different counties and unites the travelers together.
