I just reached Denmark after a very long hitchhiking trip home. My entire adventure in Norway was absolutely beyond amazing. There are so many wonderful stories to tell that I would never finish if I began! The one thing I can say is that I really cannot recommend enough that everyone try to go and immerse themselves completely in the mountains at least once in their lives.
Also absolutely wonderful to be home just in time to partake in the celebrations of Copenhagen Pride. I might have gotten up at 5:30 this morning to load a truck, but tonight I’ll go out and celebrate the wonderful diversity of the world.
Pictures from my trip will be uploaded in the next days and weeks - believe me, there are plenty.
I swear, the plane took a wrong turn and set me off in Skyrim instead of Norway!
Also, I wish I could grow a beard for the occasion.
I leave. Tonight. For Norway!! Time to buy the last few things (I lost something on a walk yesterday. Yay, last minute shopping!) and re-pack my bag for the 47-and-a-half-th time.
There has been a misunderstanding with my hotel booking for tonight, so it’s been booked for tomorrow night instead. This means that I will probably be sleeping in my tent on some desolate spot around Bergen airport tonight… But I am staying in the hotel tomorrow night instead of moving on already. It’s a nice chance to experience Bergen and catch up on the sleep I miss tonight, before I immerse myself in nature.
I am so nervous (but far more excited) about travelling on my own, hitchhiking and living in nature for so long with only the stuff on my back - all for the very first time! Hopefully I will be back with a ton of pictures that will hopefully do my journey justice.
I think bittersweet best describes today’s event. I got a callback from MAC Cosmetics. They want to see me because of an application I sent in two and a half month ago. This is my DREAM job, and so of course I was completely overwhelmed and very very excited when I got an answer after so long. No doubt I’d quit my current (very nice and well paying) job for MAC. However, thet could only offer me two dates for the interview, both of which are when I’m in Norway. When I asked if I could go before or after my trip, I was told that I would have to send in my application all over again.
I was so disappointed. The call was very short, and I didn’t even have the time to consider the possibility of canceling my trip (which I’d HATE. This trip is so important to me, and I’ve waited for it for months, but nonetheless).
I am looking so much forward to Norway, but having to possibly wait another two-three months for another call back - or much worse, not getting another chance! It just makes this whole Norway trip so bittersweet, knowing that I possibly missed a shot at my dream job.
Also, there is absolutely no point to this post. I am just venting. And counting the days until I leave.
