So, the other day I got this question on Instagram: “Are electric cars really a thing in Norway? I mean... it's a huge country. Do they hide a large battery somewhere in the mountains?” LOL! Well, I don’t know about the battery, though, how awesome would that be?! To be honest with you, I get this question all the time working as a tour guide. Apparently, whenever international media report about Norway nowadays, it’s either for tourism purposes or to talk about electric cars. The latter seems to have sparked quite an interest abroad:
Heia! Can I be brutally honest with you? I've lost my blogging mojo. That is I did loose it. Then I took a month off as I didn't really have time to write anyway, and now I'm getting back into it and feel as refreshed as ever! I've been thinking a lot about what I hate about the current state of blogging, lately. For instance, the fact that everyone seems to be writing for Google only, rather than for their current audience - something people still seemed to be doing back when I started this blog in 2014. Or maybe travel bloggers never did? Maybe that's just something lifestyle bloggers are very good at? But isn't blogging dying anyway?
Sweden is a place that many people appreciate due to its beautiful landscapes, medieval architecture – and overall fascinating touristic points. You have very beautiful coasts, intricate buildings with a fair amount of detail – and the feeling that you are in the countryside, even if you are in the middle of a city.

It might seem like Stavanger in summertime is full of tourists, while all the locals disappear to either their summer cabin or to Spain in search of vitamin D. However, there's actually loads going on in the city during the summer months and besides Hafrsfjordkaupangen in June, late July is a time when the entire region gathers in Stavanger again after the summer break to celebrate food at Glad Mat Food Festival and this year, also to have a look behind the scenes of the world's sailing vessels at the Tall Ships Races.
