The Goodbye Post?

So I guess this is it, my final blog post whilst in Norway! I’m not quite sure what to say even though I have been thinking about this final post for quite a while. I feel like I should be able to share some incredible advice or be incredibly philosophical, I have just lived abroad… Read more »

Less than a month…

As of today there is little more than 4 weeks until I have to leave Norway. I still haven’t actually comprehended this fact, even though I have written it many times. I am quite sure that I will only fully understand what leaving actually means when I get to Oslo Airport on the 4th of… Read more »

50 Days?

There are now less than 50 days until I hop on the plane and start my journey back to Aus.  It is insane to think about just how fast time has gone (it seems like only yesterday that I was celebrating making it to the 1 month mark) and I know I haven’t actually come… Read more »

Som du kanskje vet jeg har skrivet flere blog artikler gjennom mitt første ni og halve måneder i Norge men de har alle vært i engelsk (det er mitt første språk så er lettere for meg å skrive med). Jeg har nylig vært oppmerksom til fakten at der er noen nordmenn som har leste det… Read more »

Observations with 9 Weeks to Go

100 Days………..To Go!?!?!?!?!

So at some point in time I reached day 250 of my exchange and, as a result, the big countdown is on. There are now 100 days until I catch a 9am flight out of Oslo and my life in Norway comes to an end. This year long exchange is now five sevenths through and… Read more »

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I’ve always written my blog posts as honestly as is possible, I want them to be an accurate reflection of what I am experiencing on exchange. However, I am not going to deny the fact that I write more about the times where everything is great than the times when I don’t feel so great…. Read more »

Taking Stock For August

If you’ve been following my blog then you’d probably know that I have done a taking stock for July and, as I found it to be a pretty enjoyable format to use, I’ve decided to give it another crack. So, without further ado, let me present you with my ‘Taking Stock For August’. Making : Plans… Read more »

My First Half-Year in School Upon Review

  I’ll start off with the very basic information. From January to June I was doing 1st year health at Strømmen Videregående Skole. I was in a class with 16 people with ages ranging from 15 (me for the most of it) to 22. When I first started school it was a massive culture shock…. Read more »
