Photo of the Week 01

Hi everybody,

I hope you’re doing great! I’m starting a new series on my blog called ‘Photo of the Week’ for my time in Norway. This is something that a lot of other – especially travel – bloggers do and I think it’s a great way to keep you all updated on what exactly I’m doing at the moment. It’s difficult to combine travel blogging with real-time blogging (if not impossible), so this is a great opportunity for me to share a bit of my adventures and travels as they are happening – and not just a month later.

I also want to use this series as a way to document my photography over the course of a year. It’s one of my goals for my stay in Norway to polish up my photography skills and I think it’d be wonderful to be able to look back in a year and see exactly how (or if) my photographs have changed.

This week was my first in Norway and spent traveling through the country. We visited Oslo and Jotunheimen National Park and will be heading to the Fjords next. I took tons and tons of photographs, so it was really hard to narrow it down, but these are some of my favorites. I can’t wait to share more about these travels!

Being in Norway has been an emotional rollercoaster so far to say the least. There have been highs (nature) and lows (missing a special someone) and I can only hope that these feelings will go away as soon as I am settled. The next will be spent traveling as well, so that should make for plenty of distraction and photo opportunities.

  3. Love this new series and I think it's a great for all of the reasons you mentioned! If I ever get back on the road again, I may have to do this. Or I may do my own version anyway -- as a way of sharing some "shorter" stories... could be fun! *I'm getting inspired AND distracted!* ANYWAY! I love C the most! :) Soooo pretty and I love the blue of the water. And the first one is awesome too, as it reminds me of being in Oslo!

    Glad to see an update! You've been missed! ;)


  4. What a great idea! :) I love photo C - so beautiful! I really hope that you settle in there quickly and the lows can become a little less frequent! xoxo

  5. Great idea to do a photo of the week because it'll give you something tangible to look at from your time in Norway. It's freaking gorgeous there and I'm going to eat up your photos with a spoon! Also, I feel you on missing someone "special" I just got back to America 2 days ago and I'm already riding the emotional roller coaster of being without my husband. Keep your chin up because the time will fly!

  6. Ah! That's so exciting! I hope you're having an awesome time in Norway and that things seem a little less crazy. I know my first week here was absolutely hectic and I was so exhausted. I also want to improve my photography skills while I'm here, but unfortunately I've only had the chance to take pictures on my phone. Hopefully I'll be able to go out there and take pictures soon.

    I love photo C! I love the bright colors and it looks so calm there. I do love the architecture in photo A. I've never seen anything like that building before.

  7. They are all fantastic, but I have to say C is my favourite. B totally looks like Scotland too :)
    Great pics, can't wait to see more.
