Hi, I’m Satu and I’m an outdoorsy mom of two who loves to travel. That said, at times I have hard time leaving Norway, my home for the last few years.
Wonder why? Have a look at this winter view almost at our doorstep in the Rondane National Park:
Or these friends I made on a little hike in Tafjord in the west coast of Norway:
I started this blog in my native Finnish five years a go when I got enough of the wet and rainy winters of southern Finland, quit my job, packed my belongings in my kayak and went off traveling with my British-imported husband Simon in search of warmer waters.
Sometimes we got it oh so wrong…
Constant changes in the scenery didn’t quite suite me as I love to travel slow and stay for an extended period in any given place.
Fast forward to 2010 and here comes Norway.
For over ten years, for my husband even more, we had been returning here year after year so it was about the time we made Norway our home. It seems fitting that our love story that started in a tiny village of Sjoa years ago (if you are bored you kill some time trying to find it on a map), has taken us to live not too far from there today.
Our lives turned upside down in November 2011 when the one in pink joined our family. And then, she got a brother in August 2013.
Want to know what life really is like when you have kids? Well. You are in the right place. We try to do the same stuff we did before we had our kids and sometimes we succeed, sometimes we put on a brave face and try to convince ourselves that we succeeded, and other times we just have to admit that we failed miserably.
Hiking with a one-week old and a toddler. Guess how far we got? Hint – see that road & car park on the background…
After maternity leave number two (they each have lasted about one year at a time), it is almost time to go back to work for me. We’ve been busy figuring out for to have it all.
And just maybe we’ve come up with the perfect solution…
I have no idea where this journey will take us but Norway has proved to be pretty amazing place to have a permanent base for frequent traveling adventures!
