and super windy. In fact it is so windy down there that the ferry that connects us to the mainland hasn't been running for at least five days now. Great for the guys as they've had some super days kiteboarding and a shocker for the surfers as there has been flat and too windy.
These little mini speakers holds an incredible sound:
Great to travel with and plug into the ipod.
My ipod however has decided to die on me. Or freeze and I cannot unfreeze it so for the last month I've been playing my music through my laptop instead.
Then two days ago I went down to kiteboard beach and lost my camera attachment so that I can no longer upoload photo's to the laptop, (what was I doing carrying the wires anyway right), and since there is not exactly a flurry of shops to choose from down here to get a new cord this double sucks.
Luckily I am due to go to Bali pretty soon and fingers crossed all my little technology problems will find a solution there.
Neon pink singlet, pink jersey and a pinkish sunset...
That fit right into todays photo challenge "Pink".
A pink rose bracelet I made last year.
My former self would've cringed with the whole idea of me wearing pink but over the last few years the colour suddenly seems oddly attractive to me and I am slowly introducing it into our home as well, as gently as I can as I know my husband is as allergic to the colour as I once was.
I love the tropics not only because it is nice and sunny and warm here every day but also because we get to sleep underneath a mosquito net which makes you feel so protected, it reminds me of my childhood days where we used to hide underneath the table cloth and share secrets of the world thinking no-one could hear us.
I know I've posted a few photo's already of this place on my blog but today's photo challenge was a favourite place.
And Haugastoel is still my favourite place.
In my mind I cannot even remember rainy days up here, (off course we had more rainy days than sunny days) but whenever I think of "stolen" there is only happy moments.
Great to spend my childhood roaming around in the mountains, having dips in the icy cold mountain water and going pushbike riding.
As mentioned there was no electricity and the stove was a wood burning stove, no showers we had to use the river, outside toilet. We spent our days running around and our evenings outside by the little table or when it was raining inside with candle lights and midsummer nights in Norway if you haven't experienced them is magical.
I love our kitchen down here on the island, it is in its own building and is nice and big and has got plenty of room,
and I spend a lot of time here.
I quite enjoy baking and cooking, (in that order).
Down here on the island I've come across vegetables I've never even seen before, let alone heard of so it was a bit of a challenge in the beginning but I slowly got the hang of it, all thanks to Sally.
Plus I've been busy with friends, who brought chocolate, thank heavens, and another friend who is busy setting up a SPA! here on the island, so I've been able to inspect and try out every single treatment, (thank you Sascha!) I will write more about this another time.
I feel very, very lucky.
I even had some awesome days out there in the surf.
We've been here on the island for a while now and the munchies are here big time so I've taken to baking bread, muesli/oat biscuits, (kinda "guilt-free" made with honey instead of sugar).
They lasted for two whole days.
I've taken to dreaming about Ben and Jerry's which is an ice-cream brand which makes unbelievable ice-cream, the phish food is my absolute favourite.
Kinda hard, (impossible) to get hold of here.
So I am snacking like crazy on oat bikkies, bread and chocolate cakes in the hope that the chocolate in the fridge will last for another month.
If you could have anything for dinner tonight what would you have?
