I got back to work last Monday(18.07) after my three-week summer vacation(for the uninitiated, in Norway we have this 4-5 week paid vacation annually mandated by the law). The office is in a state of torpor as most of my colleagues and our clients are still enjoying their fabulous vacation. I took this time as an opportunity to learn something new and also reinvent the wheel while at it.
Highlights these past few days:
1. Last Sunday, Bergen had a brief respite from this biblical downpour (Bergen is like Seattle – a city that never dries) so we decided to take a hike on the highest of the seven mountains surrounding our city. I’ve been living here for over 10 years and I haven’t been on top of Ulriken, so it was about time. I was joined by my husband and one of our bffs, Lene.
2. We just bought a car. It’s a 2017 BMW Series 3 M Sport. We have to wait like 8-10 weeks though since it’s being assembled in Germany with our specifications.
3. Since we bought a car, I’m now forced to get a driver’s licence (my husband got his when he was 18) and started with the process right away (driving courses, examinations and the likes). I was thinking about it before, but it was never a priority since we live in the centre of the city, meaning everything is like a 5-10-minute walking distance.
4. Started playing Pokémon Go and I think it’s fun. I discovered that our home is located in between two Pokéstops. Sometimes I drop a lure and managed to capture some interesting Pokémons.
What has been the highlight of your week so far?
