Back home

...and then the fairytale ended, and I'm back to a normal life in Norway. The last year has had ups and downs, but overall it has been an experience beyond all expectations. I've done things and met people that will have a huge part of my heart and memories for a long long time. I ended it all with a 3 weeks "holiday" in the city that never sleeps. Just to be able to walk the streets of New York without having to think about school or any other responsibilities has been great. I've had the best time with amazing people; partying, enjoying the incredibly hot New York-summer, strolling the streets of West Village, having late dinners, gone to the beach and so much more. 

It's again time to say goodbye to a life as a "blogger", I'm glad to have been able to share parts of my life with family and friends. Here are some pictures from the last week in my dear city, trying to sum up the feeling I have inside. (Press the pictures to see them bigger).

New York, I'll be back!!!!

 
I've been to a champagne-tour at Gallery Sand (277 West 4th street) with good friends, partying with Vebjørn Sand and his crazy twinbrother Aune. It was a blast, and their gallery, oh my!!!! Wish I had USD100.000 to be able to buy one of those paintings...

 
Enjoying New York through flowers, and yet another champagne brunch with Katrine.

 
Celebrating our Constitution Day, 17th of May, some days ahead, on an amazing rooftop bar viewing East River in one direction, the Empire State Building in the other.

 
I went to Missoula, Montana, with my aunt to visit relatives. We even met a black bear.. (no kidding!)

 

 
They took us to Glacier National Park and showed us the real nature of Montana. So beautiful. We have such a nice family, and we even got to know some "new, crazy ones" :-) Thank you, Dean, Kim and Abby, for making it an adventure!

 
From high mountains back to New York. To make the transition less, we went on a heli-ride over Manhattan. It was so cool, and really worth it!!

 
I've enjoyed New York skyline from great rooftops, with a beer in one hand, good friends in the other. Before I, every single night, have said good night to 2nd Avenue and the sound of sirens and cars. (I actually miss falling asleep to all the noise..)

 
Been tourists to a certain extent. Wall Street!

 
Went to TAO, my favorite restaurant, on Ragne's last day in the city - fellow "Skotselving". Small world, huh? Just across the street you'll find Lavo, I wouldn't miss it..

 
I've been tanning with the greatest view (almost) possible, and then experienced Coney Island on Memorial Day (national holiday).

 

 


And yet again, I've met gorgeous people whom I already miss alot (Chichi and Conrad above).
To the right: Brooklyn Tabernacle (recommended!!!) where we all sang gospel together with a breathtaking choir.
That's the American way!!
