Lilacs

by Silje 0 Comments

Summer in Tromsø: May lilacs and October rain. The calendar says July, but who could tell? It keeps raining. We forgot what the sun feels like. But the lilacs… the incredibly delightful summer smell when you open the door.




Jeff Buckley helps too. The rain on the windows and a house full of books. A cup of tea and some maps to plan the next hike up a mountain, this too could make for a summer day, in October or May or July… under a lilac tree, under a concrete sky.

Tidy up… Quick!

It’s raining in Tromsø today. Again… Perfect weather for paying bills, drinking coffee and doing some organizing of all the brochures, flyers and maps floating around the house. So that one fine day when you come by, by chance or by will or by a sudden itch on a sunny day, they will all sit neatly organized on the shelf on top of the stairs, waiting for you to plan your Tromsø day over a self-prepared breakfast or a nice cup of evening tea. In the meantime, there’s the sound of rain on the roof. Paper in our hands and music in the air. And everything just seems so much brighter with this fantastic video from the Magnetic Fields.

Welcome to our new blog!

Apart from hiking, reading, dancing, meeting new people, drinking coffee, cooking, talking, fishing and laughing, we also like writing. And this is where we’re going to do just that. And we’ll write about the things we like, i.e. mountains, nature, people, culture, trees, coffee, lamps, music, poetry, seagulls, photography and anything else that strikes us as important, or fun.

We hope you will enjoy seeing Tromsø through our eyes this way, no matter if it’s before, during or after your visit here in real life. If there’s anything specific you would love to read about, let us know in the comments below and we will put your wish on our to-write-list!
