Quella volta in cui ci siamo svegliati prima dell'alba per vedere il sole sorgere dal mare, con Bergen come sfondo.
Il tempo passava, la luce aumentava ma il sole all'orizzonte non si vedeva...
Nelle foto 1,2 potete ammirare le espressioni di chi si rende conto che il mare che ti sta alle spalle è rivolto ad Ovest. Il sole sorge ad est. Fate voi i calcoli.

We might need to temporarily find new types of adventures (like TP and hand sanitizer hunting expeditions), but the parks aren’t going anywhere. Good opportunity to explore trails in our own backyards too.
Just a few hours after my last post I went into labor. My son was born 2020.01.28 on a cloudy January afternoon in Stockholm. Such a strange thing giving birth, suddenly a new life is born and everything but the child seems unimportant and pale. Social media in specific appeared pointless and stupid to me for a while, therefor my absence. It still does, but I’m slowly getting back to business while my love for Julian grows stronger and stronger. The first weeks was ruff, l never as pregnant imagined how it would be after the baby’s birth, I guess because I take things as they come and try to live in the now. I like to experience things my way and not listen too much of other people’s talk “think about this/it’s gonna be like that/do this/don’t do that/bla bla bla”. We have to get to know each other, learn how to build up our days and get through the nights. It’s much easier already and I can’t wait for him to grow and discover the world with our family. Just an update, I’ll try to post a little more frequently from now. Stay calm out there people, I know these days are a bit hysterical.

If you’re into scenic drives, haven’t seen views from 14k feet, and aren’t freaked out by drop-offs next to the road, the 19-mile drive up America’s Mountain (Pike’s Peak) is a worthwhile excursion.
If you still have nightmares about “the big hill” you had to go over to get to gymnastics as a kid in NJ (🙋🏼♀️), then PASS! Or just enjoy the views (like this one) and stop offs in the first 10-12 miles which are relatively easy driving.
I made it to mile 16 and was sooo freaking happy to turn around. Would’ve turned around sooner but there was no safe spot earlier once I hit the switchbacks.
I DO want to go back and hike it or take the train up but ZERO regrets about not driving all the way up. I remember thinking “I could see how this would be pretty if you weren’t afraid of mountain drives.” 😂 #knowyourself
