I have been here for 8 months now (completed yesterday) and as I've mentioned, I've fallen in love with Oslo. But I guess it's just a glance at what Norway offers me. So I decided that I'll be exploring Norway (at least some of it) in June and July. I've done a tiny bit so far, but during summer I'll try to make the most out of it.
Would anyone like to join?
If you need more reasons for that, enjoy this:
There should be plenty of hanstands coming from here...
I guess I was away for to long (right, Fernando??). But I think now I have a perfect excuse to write something quick and I believe, interesting enough. Today in the Opera forums I got a good question from one of the fans about this blog, which felt like the perfect moment to share some info with all of you. His question was something like this:
Just out of curiosity, but being Brazilian in Oslo, why do you write in English?
Fair enough. Why would I?
I guess it's not too hard of a question to answer. I write in English because I have friends and family spread out in several places of the world and not all of them know Portuguese. As the vast majority speaks English quite well, or at least well enough to understand my blog, I thought English would be the way to go.
And writing in English has brought me some very nice surprises as you can see below.
I've had visitors from basically all corners of the world. The map above shows where did they come from in only 1 week. So it's really great to know that there are people in Indonesia, Russia, Egypt and so many other places check out this Rio-Oslo conection. Thanks a lot to all of you!!!
Now if I may ask for something, could everyone introduce themselves very briefly on the comments? I'll open them up with a comment from myself. So basically just say where you are from, how did you find the blog and whatever else you'd like to share.
Hey people, I know I have to make sure I can organize myself to write some more thoughts about how life in Oslo has been treating (very well actually).
But I promise I will get to it sometime this week.. Maybe tonight... You never know... Just keep checking.
So I have new pictures that I have put up including pictures from Autumn! And for those that are locals, or close enough, that is an amazing experience for me... I'm finding the trees and everyhting really nice. And the sun has decided to pay a visit every now and then...
I also wanted to welcome the visitors from different places! I know there have been people from Norway, Brazil, Sweden, France, England and my personal surprises: Egypt, Pakistan and India! Cool!!!
So, this is what you've all been waiting for!!! My Norwegian adventures blog is officialy up and running, so now I can try and keep you all updated with my information from the land of the Vikings, Trolls, Fjords, different letters (ø,å and æ) and some many other things that I'll talk about on the next posts... Let's hope I can actually update it every so often. And maybe you can also help with some comments to keep me motivated!! =)
For now I'll just post a picture from my recent adventures that I bet you were all waiting for:
Beijos, abracos, kisses, hugs, bisous, besos, abrazos, etc, etc, etc.
