Katja and Arne's travel stories

One step closer

Leave a comment

As we get closer to the date of departure I slowly realize that it is happening. It is still a bit abstract, the fact that I’m not returning home and to work for more than a year. Today we handed our house to our tenants, which seems like a great couple. Strange though. Someone else will be using my couch, the kitchen and our bed. We are so lucky to borrow my father-in-law’s apartment in down town Oslo until we leave. It is nice, yet unfamiliar to have all kind of noise and people so “close”.
The following days will be spent getting the last few details In order. Especially test-packing for the trip. So far my planned volume far exceeds what’s right. Lonely Planet recommends to lay out what you plan to bring, then take away half. Let it sit for a couple of days…. And remove half again. Then you’re close to the right amount. 🙂
At present time it is 17 days, 3 hours and 20 minutes until departure.
The picture is not mine at all, but has been the background on my iPad for some time. It illustrates quite well how the trip plays out in my head. 😉

Be safe!

Humongen! The big guy! The man, the myth, the legend! And then theres' me. The nice guy in the house. The man without cooking skills, but with five stars on the Playstation. Boss at work, relaxed at home. What you see is what you get. Life is good. I choose it to be.
