I recently spent 12 days in Lebanon with an amazing bunch of people I know from when I lived there in 2013. Many of them were my flatmates in the Kindergaten Collective. People flew in from all over the world; the states, Moldova, all over Europe and Saudi Arabia. We spent our days hiking, eating amazing Lebanese and Armenian food, swimming in the Mediterranean and organized some wild parties as well.
Went to the USA (NYC and Philly) and took some pictures. (Blogpost 2/2)
FujiFilm Norway were kind enough to lend me an x100s and I must say I really
enjoyed using it and I’m looking forward to using it more.

Today was the first day of “proper” winter in Oslo and I think it maybe everyone very happy.
Jules and I went camping again last night. 4th trip this fall.
Our sleeping bags are rated -4°C and -9°C so we have no excuses not to continue this nice little habit we’ve taken. But I have to say last night was cold, probably because of the high humidity. So more wool and isolating material next time.
When we woke up this morning my bag was missing. We had left it in the entrance of the tent but some sort of animal (what can it be!?) had taken it. We found a lead after a few minutes that lead us to the backpack, only 20 meteres away. The breakfast, a single rosinbolle leftover from last night’s feast, was the only thing missing. Lucky for us, animals don’t drink coffee.
We have no idea where we are. Lost in the woods.
There is something magic about arriving to an new place at night, specially when one can see the milky way and the stars like this.
Last weekend, Ida and I took some days off from the city and went to her mom’s cabin. It’s up in the mountains so the autumn has really begun there. It’s beautiful! We ate, walked, slept, read, and rested. Ate some more, walked some more then went home.
Jules and I have taken for a habit to go on “s24o” trips lately.
What is that, you might wonder. Well “a S24O (pronounced “Es-Two-Four-Oh”) was coined by Grant Peterson of Rivendell. It is a sub-24 hour overnight bike camping trip.”. (from here)
…and it’s genius! Because we are away from home less than 24 hours we really don’t need to plan much and therefore we’re much more likely to go for a trip. This trip was the second one we’ve done this year and once again, when we rode home, we felt we’d been away for much longer.
It really isn’t about riding fast or riding far, it’s just about going for a small trip outside of town and that, more often :)

A week on the west coast.
