Have you tried going up to the mountain and have camping? Last month me and hubby walked up in the forest to have our daily exercise and we encountered this camping house up there. For me it is so cool and nice to relax and stayed over night! Hope me and family can do it too! I took a picture of the tent looks they made there! Very unique!

Here are also your camping guide tips for those who wanted to try!
1. Try and set up camp in daylight — you’ll avoid unpleasant surprises like ants’ nests.
2. Pick a spot protected from the wind by using a line of trees, scrub or the lee of a hill as a windbreak.
3. Level, firm ground is important but don’t select the lowest ground because water will pool there when it rains. Avoid dried mud — these are the first places to get boggy when it rains.
4. Position your tent so you sleep with your head higher than your feet. (Don’t scoff — you’d be surprised how many people make this mistake!)
5. Don’t camp under trees with large boughs, especially gums. Often called ‘widow makers’, they tend to snap in strong winds and lightning strikes.
6. Set up a sun shelter by rigging a tarp off the side of your tent. This is also a good rain shelter, provides extra cooking space and a place to leave gear.
7. In rain, use a tarp as a second fly. You can also use a tarp underneath your tent as an extra moisture barrier. In heavy rain, dig a small trench on the high side of your tent to divert run-off.
8. If camping on a beach, avoid unprotected headlands or sand dunes. Find a sheltered spot out of the wind behind shrubs and trees or in a dune.
9. Pay attention to warning signs about wildlife such as crocodiles or poisonous marine life.
10. In mountains, don’t camp on ridges or saddles between peaks — they can be exposed and dangerous. Use protected sites such as rocky platforms, ledges and river terraces.
11. In deserts, the best campsites are on the edge of dry clay pans or in dunes. Don’t camp in dry creeks or river beds. A distant storm may send a flood of water when you least expect it.

Folks, lastweek I tried to ride a bus in my own. I was nervous and unsure but thanks everything went fine. You can see the ducks on my way to the bus station. They are there all the time I pass by. They are so lovely and I love them.

I just knew by then that during winter they are more than hundreds who stayed in that area. Now that it is summer they are not that many. People here used to feed them too! I wish I could do feeding them too one day!

Last Wednesday, that was my 1st time to go in ‘bibleotek’ or library. Our teacher instructed us to have a short tour and check every section of the library near to our school. It is really a wide library. All kinds of books are in stored. You can also borrow CD and DVD. The best thing you can use computer with internet for FREE. All you have to do is to present your passport or any proof that you are living here in Norway.

My mates are listening to the instruction, while me busy taking pictures!!!

Some of my mates borrowed kids DVD. I did not borrowed anything but maybe next time! Anyway, look at here the wide library we had in school. Nice to drop and relax and read books or surf at the internet.

I posted in my travel site two days ago about fjords trip. So sad it is cancelled due to bad weather this coming friday. I am really excited you know! That will be my 1st time to go in an island here in Norway. But, sad the weather forecast says there will be heavy rain… huhuhu!

Anyway, it is scheduled next week. Hoping for the best! Just quick update for now folks! I need a bit rest , my eyes is getting weaker hahaha.
