This year’s first travel itinerary has begun. My first big trip of the year started out like most, butterflies in my stomach and excitement to visit a new city. Knowing I was only going to be 48 in Oslo, Norway I felt like a backpacker wanting to get to know the city as best as I could in the limited amount of time that I had. As soon as I got to the city, I noticed that there was nature everywhere I looked and I can’t express how extremely beautiful it was.
I stayed in the center of the city surrounded by a mixture of tourists and Norwegians. I usually gravitate towards visiting cute coffee shops and trendy restaurants, which is what I found blocks away from where I was staying. I honestly felt safe and in a weird way I felt at home because of how welcoming the people were. The city was crowded with lively people speaking a variety of languages.
I woke up early the first day there, only to experience the most beautiful sunrise. Given I was a little jetlagged, I decided to get ready and hit the town. Although the weather was cold, it was not unbearable which made me more excited to go out and get to know the culture. That’s what the best part of traveling is.
Many of us make the new year’s resolution to travel more, but this year is the year to make your travels happen. Something will always be in the way, but there is no better feeling than waking up somewhere that is unfamiliar and ready to be explored. So excited to share more on my upcoming destinations. Stay Tuned !
