To climb a mountain…..

Todays post in English

It is that time of year again

The weekend we´ve planned for all year…

Looked forward too

What peak to climb this year?

Where should we travel?

Where should we stay?

For 9 years we have traveled and climbed mountains with our colleagues

These are the mountains we have climbed:

Melderskin in Rosendal

melderskinn

Kjerag/Bolten and Prekestolen

Hornelen, Store Smørstabbtind, Slogen, Fanaråken, Breidablikk an also all the way up in the spier of Nidarosdomen….

hornelen

A doctor from Africa visiting our hospital in Bergen wrote about his meeting with the strange Norwegians….

One Sunday morning he sat by his window and saw a crowd of people  walking by , continuing up the mountain. He threw his clothes on and hurried after them curious to see what was going on?

it was a long walk and he couldn’t believe it when he realized that they only went up the mountain to eat their lunch just to go back down again…..In Africa they walked only to get something or to go somewhere…

He also asked the question: How far up the mountain must Norwegian go before they start greeting each other?»

SO WHAT DO WE DO AT THE TOP

we drag ourselves up the mountainside

20170909_102848

Some turns before they reach the top

Thats ok!

we eat and drink some

Talk a lot

Laugh even more….

maybe drink some champagne, cider or beer…:)

20170909_174447

Take «some» pictures at the top….often with our hands in the air…..dont know why…..just something we do…

20170909_142935

Change out of sweaty clothes

and turn back down again…

when we get back down  we party and have fun!

and the next day we go back home…

Why do we do this every year?

Whats the point?

If you ask that question you have never been on a mountain top…

seen the view…

experienced that «good tired» feeling after an physical challenge

And also;

It is social

It is so fun

It is so important to our work environment

20170909_142648

This year we went to SKÅLA in Loen

We went from sero meters above the ocean to 1848 meters above the Ocean ( 2021 yards) in only 8 kilometers… ( =4mi 1708.906yd)

So very steep!!

Challenging hike…

Maybe one of the most challenging we´ve been on…

But it was fabulous

It was great

 

20170909_145542

We had snow on the top

1150 moh

And we took a swim at 1150meter ( =1257yd 1.96ft)  above the ocean in perhaps 4 og 5 degrees celsius ( 39 fahrenheit)  Only 2 of us went in!

The day after we took the sky-lift op to the Via Ferrata….before going home…

Next time I will climb it…..maybe…..

 

20170910_113036

We got to see basejumpers in wing-suits throwing themself off the cliff…

 My palms were swetty, but I did manage to film them…

» What if they crash into the mountainside??» I gasped. » What will we do than?»

 » We cant do anything than – you will have to call Your boyfriend» One of the doctors replied 🙂

(My boyfriend is a funeral agent 🙂 )

We have had a wonderful weekend

We have enjoyed ourselves so much

We have sore, heavy and stiff legs as proof! 🙂

We will do the same next year

But in a different part of our country- on a different mountain

THANKS SO MUCH TO OUR BEAUTIFUL NATURE!!20170910_113421

WE LOVE YOU

Deadly offended!!!!

Todays post in English

Got an email today….

…….asking me if I wanted to participate in the golf-clubs senior tournament!!!

20170903_141558

There are several ways to react to this….

«Nice that they want to include me……»

But senior tournament????

HELLO!!!!

ME?????

Who are only 29????

It is not very easy to continue that self-deception when I get invited to events for 50+

Of course I could have replied;

«Sorry !!! but I am not that old»

But I didnt…..

The truth is that I am only a year short….

 

20170903_143004

So why is age that important?

Why shouldn’t you ask a lady her age?

Why do I cling to the number 29?

Where was I – at the age of 29?

Mother of 4 children at the age 1 -8

BUSY!!!

Not much time for my self…

ungene

But what a wonderful time………even though I dont want it back…

Everything has their time

Every age its charm…

But why than, do I try to peel off the years that has past??

……..with them I´ll also erase :

All my experiences….

Everything that I have learned….

All that has happened to me…

All my acquisitions…

skyteguri

Everything that I have seen

My wisdom

All my accomplishments

Maturity…..

20170530_093553

My kids are grown ups now

And we have a totally different relationship..

I can enjoy a wine – evening with my girls and bonus children…

20170719_130429

I can enjoy a great day at the golf course with my son and trainer 🙂

I can ask my oldest son for advice – because he is often more sensible and reflected than I am.

I can do as I choose with my leisure time…

Go on a trip with my boyfriend if I want

I dont have to go to any school if I dont want to my self

I have a great job – that I love!

 

anestesijanecke

I have good economy

I own my own house and car

I have learned how to play golf ( never a blog without mention golf 🙂 )

 

20170808_163046

So why would I want to erase all these years?

and cling to 29???

Of course I dont want that…

I want both!!!!

Keep everything that these years have given me…..but stay 29 as well 🙂

Why???

well…mostly it is a joke…

…..but there is some seriousness to it as well….

I dont need to get much older now…..

Not so much about the looks…..maybe 🙂

Every age has its charm as I pointed out earlier….

….and if you are wise, you have a lover  your own age – to make sure you aren’t the only one aging….;)

 

20170706_173726

No, it has more to do with our limited time here on earth to be honest….

A bit frightening to think about….

I would like live for ever…

I read somewhere, that if you only believed strongly enough…

and you send these thoughts out into the universe..

showing gratefulness in advance…

It will happened

SO;

DEAR UNIVERSE ❤

I FULLY BELIEVE THAT I AM FOREVER 29 YEARS OLD ❤

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE ❤

 

hopp i regnbuen

I WISH YOU ALL A WONDERFULL THURSDAY

Quality time with my boyfriend

oss på fjelet

Job projects that has to be finished

blogging…

my office has been turned into a guest room for the time being…

The excuses are many

But the result is the same:

I havent been writing on my book for weeks!!

Bilde2

Not that I have writers block or anything…

I just haven’t prioritized it..

Been postponing and postponing….

Its like when I have taken a too long vacation from exercising and gain a few to many ponds;

«Ill start eating healthy and exercise on monday again»

Then comes monday, but it turns out that we have been invited to a party on Wednesday….there will of course be cakes….

No sense in starting a healthier lifestyle before that

And then Wednesday has past, but now the weekend is coming up pretty soon….

Nobody starts a diet on a weekend???

No better just wait until the next monday…

20170807_083954

Some times I postpone projects like that for weeks….fool my self with different excuses….

Until I finally pull myself together and go «all in»

Thats were I am at with my writing right now…

Deadline is coming up and I have to get back to writing my book

I want to

This monday it is going to happen!!

I will get back to exercising, healthier nutrition and writing every day!!

So today I got up early ( 05.15)

trained for 30 minutes

walked the dogs

and wrote this blog

And tonight I have  planned to write for 1 hour on my book

Todays post in English

First day back at work….

It`s  not that bad when I am first here…

It is actually quite nice….

Meeting up with good colleagues….

Remembering that I am actually good at more than playing golf, drinking wine, sun tanning……

and eating way to much good food…

 

20170813_170153

It feels good that I am actually good at something

feel the pride of my profession….

The identity that also lies there…

But yesterday was a difficult day

Sunday night, after weeks of vacation and free time to do whatever I wanted…

The thought of the alarm-clock who would come crashing back into my life in just a few hours….

In front of the TV with my boyfriend and a glass of wine…

Or it was actually champagne…

A last toast with bubbles for a fantastic vacation….

That was hard….

Very hard to think about the vacation coming to an end…

Not just starting work but all the other routines;

Work out

Eating healthier

Getting back to writing on my book who has been left alone for too long…

Yesterdays post in English

20170810_154603

I cant….

Won’t….

I am enjoying this so much….

Excellent food and drinks…..

Late nights on the terrace, laughing and good times..

A boyfriend that tells me that he loves me many times a day..and does those adult stuff with me that people who love each other do…

How can I leave a place were the morning starts without the alarmclock…

Were the sound of my boyfriends snoring for some reason is abscent…

From mornings at the terrasse with a good book,something to eat and drink…

20170807_075712.jpg

From peace and quiet…

With beautiful sunrises…

20170808_074013

From beautiful surroundings

20170806_084308

and flowers so perfect..

From sun and heat…

20170808_163046

We will just stay…

Emigrate

Immigrate

But then I speak to the man in the reception at the golfclub.

He has been to Bergen this summer and praises how gorgeous City we have…

At first it is greek to me….even though he is Spannish and speaks English…. the message is still greek… 😊

I remember fleeing from a rainy City wich again has beaten some absurd rain- record  from the 1800….

From summerdays with the same temperature as christmas eve….

But the man is speaking of totally different stuff and I start to remember…

Everything that I have back home…

20170628_075251

Our fantastic children who I love more than anything…..

OF COURSE I WANT TO GO HOME TO THEM!!!

And what about  My and Pi that probably wonders were we are….

my og pi med osterøy bak

The family..

Not to mention all our friends?

The choir that are giving a huge concert at Bergens concerthouse: Grieghallen this fall….

And the ice-swimmer club…..not as impressive to start one here in Spain…

And what about the job that I love….all my collegues…

And the other job that I am starting this fall, wich I am really looking forward to…

And beautiful surroundings????

Bergen do really have to offer plenty in that department to…

hoppende glad

20170601_061658

And to be honest, I dont mind my boyfriends snoring  so much….

And he do tell me that he loves me many times a day at home as well….

And those adult stuff we do….well we didnt invent them here in Spain….

That’s how it is with vacation…..sun and heat….we appreciate it because we dont have that all year…

Yep! I changed my mind!

I AM COMING HOME!!!

But not quite yet….I am still going to enjoy a short week of sun, golf and all the rest..

And I do agree with the Spannish guy who at first seemed to be speaking greek;

NOTHING IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN BERGEN WHEN SUNNY

Bergen

I wish you all a wondetful day wether its sunny or rainy were you are!!!!

❤ ❤ ❤

OMG!!!!

Todays post in English

I rule in Golf!!

Yep it’s true!!!!

At least I rule in golf in Spain!!

Well…..it is all a matter of who you compare me with of course…

I am not a threat to Tutta yet….

PGA will have to wait a couple of years…😀

But I do play a lot better than I have been…

20170806_191633

Here is what I have written in an earlier blog about handicap in golf :

When you play a par 3 hole,it means you are supposed to get the ball in to the hole in just 3 strokes if you dont have any handicap at all…(that means you are very good) if You manage to do that you get 2 points.

I have a high handicap and get 2 ekstra strokes for the same hole. That means that if I get it in to the hole in 5 strokes I get 2 points as well.

A par 4 holes means that the ball should go in to the hole in 4 strokes without hcp, and I usually get 3 ekstra strokes-in other words 7 strokes.

If I use 8 strokes I only get 1 point and if I use 9 I dont get any points at all. But if I only use 6 – I get 3 points and if I only use 5 I get 4 points and so on…

In an 18 hole round you should get 36 points to play accordingly to your handicap,that means 2 points in each hole- but there is a bufferzone so you can get a bit lower score without changing your hcp. If You get more than 36 points,you will get a lower hcp (wich means you have gotten better)

I started at 54 and are now at 49. My goal for this year is 36. 🙂

ARE YOU WITH ME??

So I went down here with 49 in hcp wich I have had all year…..

This spring and summer I have been struggeling with the game and even stuff I managed before was all crap now…

But before leaving for this trip I went to a training range with my son to practice. And things were getting better.

Especially my swing with the Driver were getting much better – wich is important,cause thats the one we use when we start a new hole and we want to hit faaaaaar…

golf redigert

When I didnt manage to do that,I was far behind and it was hard to reach the hole in a few strokes….

golfball

But then we came here…

to beutiful surroundings..

alende golf

Dried courses..

Flawless fairways ( =the long field we play before reaching the Green that surrounds the hole)

20170807_180504

And greens so perfect that we wonder if it’s a carpet we are playing on..

20170806_122126

AND I PLAY SO GOOD!!!!

As you read further up- you should get 36 points to play accordingly to your hcp.

I got 44 points on my first round!!! And fell all the way down to 41 in hcp!!

The next day I had 9 less extra strokes due to my new hcp and I worried that it would be hard to play that good again….

I got 41 points!! And reached my goal of 36 in hcp this year!!!

20170807_144409

Of course this was celebrated at the club house 🙂

20170808_120158

Another amazing thing is that I have been playing with the same ball all along – I havent lost one yet!!

That means I havent hit any in to the water or woods….at least not without finding it again. 🙂

20170808_142349

I am so happy with reaching the goal of 36 in hcp- wich was my goal for this year 😀

I am a bit apprehensive about playing in Norway again….

Wet and heavy fields are not that forgiving…the ball doesnt travel that far and it’s harder to hit trough the long and wet grass…

But if it doesnt work out I just have to move to Spain 🙂

This is the life I was ment to live 🙂

20170808_163046

I WISH YOU ALL A WONDERFUL DAY – YOU WILL FIND ME AT THE GOLFCOURSE

❤ ❤ ❤

 

 

 

 

WORRIED!!!!!!

Todays post in English

We finally went on our vacation….

That was my first worry; would we go anywhere at all this year??? Or would we end up staying home in the pouring rain, playing golf at soaked fields?

We hadn’t booked anything when the vacation started, but there where some loose ideas….

And then suddenly…..within 2 days the trip to Spain was booked…..

With the airline Norwegian…..

received_10155149537675667

So then my next worry surfaced……delay…….that seem to be  Norwegians trademark this summer…

I might be a bit unjust saying that – I have travelled with Norwegian many times, 3 times to Thailand among others – and they have always been  right on time….except for this March when we had to stay a day longer in the Canary Island due to delay…

But there has been a lot of delays this summer – so I was worried……

BUT

Norwegian was punctual both in leaving Norway and arriving Spain

We had booked real cheap tickets to Murscia ( wich is about an hour drive from the resort we were going to) and the plane was not full at all:

received_10155149538055667

We landed as I said right on time – both suitcases and golf gear came quickly, which I also had worried about…..wouldn’t be the same on a golf resort without our golf gear…

And it was hot!! Very Hot: 31 degrees celsius / 87,8 farenheit at 8.15 pm)

murcia

…..we walked straight to the shutlebus who drove us to the rental car company. Where they tried to sell us several » very cheap» insurances for the car, but this control freak had already read all the small letter writings and knew we had all the insurance that we needed 🙂

As a «penalty» we had to pay a deposit for 1000 euro, which we will get back when returning the car undamaged……so no it is placed in a garage and will only be used in an emergency;)  so no worries there at least 🙂

Another worry I had was how we would fit all the luggage into the little car we rented??? we had 2 golf bags + a large and a small suitcase and our self!….I was pretty sure the car didnt have a roof rack….

It turned out just fine….I couldnt see shit out the rear window,but no suitcases were left behind.

And then it was the drive…..on a highway in a small Fiat….with all the crazy Spanish drivers in front,on the side and behind…anf the sudden dark as if someone has hit the lightswitch..

Of course I was the driver – my boyfriend doesnt like airplanes so he medicates his anxiety with Underberger🍹

Ergo;  » he is not a designated driver!»

The drive started with a fight in the first roundabout ……- but we were smart and blamed it on the GPS lady…so we could stay friends……

The rest of the drive went just fine! Little traffic the most of the way and GPS is really Gods gift to tourists on the road…..We drove straight on to the resort and arrived at 10 pm Saturday evening.

My next worry was the apartment….It wasn’t the one we originally wanted to book, and the pictures the landlord had sent from this one, looked like something from grandmas youth….. but when the pictures arrived we had no choice, the tickets were booked and we needed somewhere to stay…

We also looked up the landlord; John on facebook and OMG!!! – not very smart to put photoshopped pictures of your self with long hanging tits when you are in the business of renting out houses…!!

I was very apprehensive and didnt know that the photo wasnt real…..and when we texted him to tell him we had landed he answered with this text;

«Sorry for how I will look – red head from sunburn and Ginparty with my friends tonight»

20170807_083954

But John was a real nice guy – he met us at the gate – showed us the garage and took us to the apartment ( wich looked much better than the photos) And he had bought us water and a bottle of champagne!

img1502088892716

FINALLY WE WERE HERE!!!

I WISH YOU ALL A DAY WITH NO WORRIES

❤ ❤ ❤

 

BEKYMRET!!!!

Så kom vi oss avgårde…

Det var min første bekymring;  kom vi til å komme oss på noen ferie i år???? Eller ville vi bare bli gående hjemme i drittvær og spille golf på gjennombløte baner?

Vi hadde jo ikke bestilt eller planlagt noen tur da ferien startet, men noen løse tanker var der jo….

Så plutselig…. i løpet av 2 dager var turen til Spania bestilt….

med Norwegian…….

received_10155149537675667

Så da dukket en ny bekymring opp …..forsinkelser…..det er jo Norwegians varemerke i disse dager…

Nå er jeg kanskje litt urettferdig – jeg har reist mye med Norwegian, blant annet til Thailand 3 ganger  og hver gang har de vært right on time….bortsett fra en tur til Gran Canaria i mars, da vi fikk oss en ekstra dag der før vi kom oss hjem….

Men vi har jo hørt om mye forsinkleser nå i sommer – så jeg var litt bekymret…

MEN

Norwegian var punktlig både på avgang og ankomst…

Vi hadde booket kjempe billige flybilletter til Murcia (som ligger ca 1 time fra golf -resorten) og på flyet var det mange ledige plasser:

received_10155149538055667

Vi landet som sagt akkurat når vi skulle – både kofferter og golf-bagger kom raskt på rullebåndet, noe jeg også hadde  bekymret meg for…… blir liksom ikke det samme på et golf resort uten golf utstyr…..

Og det var varmt…. Veldig varmt; 31 grader kl 20.15….

murcia

……vi gikk rett på en shutlebuss utenfor ankomst bygningen som tok oss til bilutleier firmaet. Der prøvde de å selge oss utallige forsikringer til «en billig penge» men heldigvis hadde denne kontrollfriken lest alt med liten skrift og visste at det var helt unødvendig i tillegg til de forsikringen vi allerede hadde 🙂

Som «straff» måtte vi selvsagt betale et depositum på 1000 euro som vi får tilbake ved levering av bilen uten skader…..så nå står den trygt forvart i en garasje og den brukes kun i nødstilfeller 🙂 så slipper jeg den bekymringen 🙂

En annen ting som opptok meg var hvordan vi skulle få plass til all bagasjen i den lille bilen vi hadde leid???? Vi hadde tross alt med oss 2 golf-bagger, 1 stor og 1 liten koffert + oss selv………og jeg var ganske sikker på at bilen ikke kom med takgrind…..

Det gikk faktisk greit det også…jeg så ikke en drit ut bakvinduet, men ingen kofferter sto igjen på flyplassen da vi dro 🙂

Så var det kjøreturen….på motorvei i en liten Fiat….med alle de gærne spanske sjåførene foran, på siden og bak…..avkjørsler og påkjørsler…..mørket som kommer som om man har slått av en bryter…

Det var selvsagt jeg som skulle kjøre – kjæresten som ikke er superglad i å fly, døyvet angsten med Underberger…..

Ergo;  » he is not a designated driver!»

Bilturen startet med en hissig diskusjon i første rundkjøring – men vi var smart og la skylden på dama i GPS én så kunne vi fortsette å være venner…..

Resten av turen gikk fint! Lite trafikk det meste av veien og GPS er faktisk guds gave til turister på biltur…Vi kjørte rett på og ankom Alenda golf resort i 22.00 tiden på lørdag kveld..

Min neste bekymring var leiligheten…… Det var jo ikke den vi opprinnelig hadde booket og bildene utleier hadde sendt oss, lignet bilder fra «tante Gudruns leilighet» som min kjære så fint proklamerte….men da bildene kom var det jo ingenting å gjøre med det, vi måtte jo ha et sted å bo, flybilletter var allerede bestilt…..

Utleier John hadde vi også lett opp på facebook og OMG!!!!! – ikke smart å legge ut photoshoppede bilder av deg selv med lange hengepupper når du driver utleie…..!!!!!!!!

Jeg hadde bange anelser, ikke visste jeg at bildet var photoshoppet og da vi meldte ham for å si at vi hadde landet; skrev han tilbake:

«Sorry for how I will look – red head from sunburn and Ginparty with my friends tonight»

20170807_083954

Men John var en utrolig hyggelig kar – han møtte oss i porten – loste oss ned i garasjen med bilen – fulgte oss til leiligheten ( som faktisk så mye bedre ut enn på bildene) og hadde kjøpt inn vann og en flaske champagne til oss!

img1502088892716

ENDELIG VAR VI HER!!!

ØNSKER DERE ALLE EN BEKYMRINGSLØS DAG

OMG what a concert!!!!

20170804_221752.jpg

I love all concerts and festvals – always have…..

And I’ve been to quite a few troughout the years..

Luckily I have been so fortunate that I have seen both my Idols live on stage:  David Bowie( RIP 😭) and Bob Dylan (this years Nobel literature price winner:)

When I was a foreign exchange student in Minnesota, USA  I didn´t live so far from Bob Dylans house. I am sure he has several houses, but he did come from Minnesota originally and has a house there.

One day, me and a friend went to his house and realized that the gate was open, and of course we went in to the property. The plan was to tell Bob that I was a fan from Norway, and of course he would let us in……

NOT!!!

When we drove up to the house, 3 guards came running out and threw us out!. Quite scary at the time – but I can always brag and say; I have been thrown out of Bob Dylans garden 🙂

But either way, wether I am a big fan of the artist – or not – I love the experience of a concert, the music that filles your body, the show, everybody in a great mood, some alcohol, pure happiness and a sense Woodstock..

At the concert this Friday, it was pouring down…I had a raincoat on ( I am from Bergen so I know how to dress in this city :)…

but no rain pants ……..

20170804_221512We were soaked…..

But you know what? We didnt care at all!!

Robbie delivered!!

I think it has to be one of the best concert I ever been to!

HE ENTERTAINED ME 😀✌👍👏

20170804_221750

Afterwards we went to a pub, and I dried my pants in the hand dryer at the bathroom.

I am sure I loked crazy standing there in my underpants – but who cares?? 😀

I WISH YOU ALL A WONDERFUL DAY!

and Please….DO say something stupid like;  I LOVE YOU 🙂

❤❤❤

 

WE LOVE YOU ROBBIE ❤ ❤ ❤

For en FANTASTISK konsert!!!!

20170804_221752.jpg

Jeg elsker konserter og festivaler – har alltid gjort det….

Og jeg har vært på utallige opp gjennom årene.

Heldigvis har jeg fått sett begge mine store idoler live; David Bowie( RIP 😭) og Bob Dylan (årets Nobels litteraturpris vinner 🙂

Da jeg var utvekslingstudent i Minnesota, USA bodde jeg ikke så langt fra huset til Bob Dylan. Han har sikker mange hus rundt om, men han er opprinnelig fra Minnesota. En dag kjørte jeg og en venninne til huset og oppdaget at porten var åpen…….og selvsagt kjørte vi inn på eiendommen. Planen var å forklare Bob at jeg var en fan fra Norge og så ville vi selvsagt få komme inn…….

NOT!!!

Da vi kjørte opp til huset kom 3 sikkerhetsvakter stormende ut av huset og jagde oss ut av hagen……ganske skremmende der og da, men jeg kan for all ettertid skryte av at jeg har blitt kastet ut av Bob Dylans hage 🙂

Men uansett om jeg er fan av artisten eller ikke så liker jeg konsertopplevelse, musikken som fyller kroppen, showet,alle folkene i godt humør, litt alkohol og pur glede i noen timer….liten anelse av WOODSTOCK 😉

På konserten fredag åpnet himmelens sluser seg fullstendig…..De høljet ned som vi sier i Bergen. Jeg hadde tatt regnjakke på meg ( jeg er da bergenser…) men ikke regnbukse…….

20170804_221512Vi ble våt, dygjennomvåt….

Men vet du hva?? Vi brydde oss overhodet ikke!

For Robbie leverte så det holdt!!

Jeg tror det må være en av de beste konsertene jeg har vært på!!

HE ENTERTAINED ME 😀✌👍👏

Etterpå dro vi på scruffy hvor jeg tørket buksen under håndtørkeren på do 🤥 Så sikkert ikke så lur ut der jeg sto i trusa, men who cares?? 😀

HA EN STRÅLENDE DAG ALLE SAMMEN

og please, say something stupid like: I LOVE YOU !

❤❤❤

 

The «control freak» is freaking out!!

Todays post in English

OMG

Yesterday morning there was a complete chaos in our house…

the day before we had been in the mountains ( voss) to play golf..

 

20170801_110233

in our bag we ha a couple of beers each…

it was our vacation and my son had promised to drive home

 

20170801_175357

After 18 holes we went for pizza before driving bak home

in the restaurant we started to talk about going to Spain to play golf next week

as said, it was our vacation – but we had not made any plans yet…

«we´ll look into it when we get back home» I said

I dont like to order or make bookings with my phone – I NEED a computer – I NEED to be able to investigate every possibility – I NEED to make the booking myself – I NEED full control!

YES I AM A CONTROLFREAK!!

…but in the backseat on the way home, my then euphorically boyfriend and my sons buddy  started to look up available apartments and airline tickets….

before I knew it the apartment was booked…

without me seeing any pictures…

«It looks great» my boyfriend jodles from the backseat..

even the fact that it has a kitchen ( which I think is quite mandatory for an apartment) excites my boyfriend at this time….

I can feel the sweat break at my forehead…..

And then they find very cheap airline tickets going to Spain..

«we´ll find the return tickets later – it will all turn out great» the globetrotter in the back proclaims…..

I can feel the adrenaline starting to boil – I want to scream – but I try to keep calm….

20170528_133244

The next day, we start the hunt for plane tickets for the return, of course they are insanely expensive…

but finally I do manage to find some at an ok price, but 4 days later than we had planned to go back home…

I feel brave and book them without having any place to stay the last 4 days in Spain…

«It has to work out – right? » I think to my self, while images of me and my boyfriend sleeping on the dirty pavement in Spain, runs trough my head…

A cousin of mine who owns a house not far from there – luckily comes to our rescue and invites us to stay with them for the last days of our vacation.

puh…..

I book a rental car from the airport and for our entire stay in Spain –

and finally I can breath normally again…

Now everything is ready!!

AND I AM STARTING TO LOOK FORWARD TO IT ALL – IT IS ONLY 2 DAYS AHEAD!!!

AND THE WEATHER FORECAST ARE PROMISSING 30 DEGREES ( *C)  86 (*F)

badenymfe

Then som cryptic messages are arriving on our Trip advisor account…

from the guy renting out his apartment;

In short: THE APARTMENT ISNT AVAILABLE!!!

the panic is back…..

…..BUT he has another apartment we can rent if we want…

puh ( again)…

some strange messages back and forth

and then suddenly an alarming messages arrived yesterday morning:

«There is no booking ,trip advisor gave your deposit back and I’m not allowed to contact you due to there rules sorry»

Who does not read that messages as if there is no apartment for us???

AND THE CONTROLFREAK FREAKS OUT!!!

enstyle1497435617297

My boyfriend got dragged out of bed before the birds woke….

there were messages to the landlord and trip advisor…..

( and it was not cosy messages!)

phone calls to anyone who might have the slightest connection to the case…

and text messages to who ever I thought of at the time

I looked everywhere for some other apartment to rent – and I could only find big villas  in an extreme price range

«Well this is turning out to be one hel…… of av vacation» I thought – ready to book one of the houses…

But finally an answer from the landlord came:

«My friend , you are not understanding what I’m saying there is a apartment for you here no problem at all , but you need to go back on TripAdvisor again pay a deposit then I except it you then pay the balance and we can then get each other’s contact details 
Our hosting time expired before we completed the booking»

MAYBE I SEE YOU TONIGHT AT THE CONCERT?

❤ ❤ ❤

 

Kontrollfriken friker ut!!

 

OMG

I går morges var det total kaos i heimen!

Dagen før hadde vi vært på Voss og spilt golf

20170801_110233

i baggen hadde vi med et par øl

vi hadde ferie og min sønn hadde lovet å kjøre hjem igjen

20170801_175357

etter endt runde tok vi oss en tur på pizza restaurant før vi vendte nesen hjemover….

der begynte vi å snakke om en mulig tur til Spania for å spille golf neste uke…

vi har ferie nå – men hadde ikke lagt noen konkrete planer…

«vi ser på det når vi kommer hjem» sa jeg

Jeg liker ikke å bestille tur på mobiltelefonen – jeg MÅ ha en datamaskin – jeg MÅ ha ro til å undersøke alle eventualiteter – jeg MÅ ta meg av bestillingen – jeg MÅ ha full kontroll!!!!

JA JEG ER EN KONTROLLFRIK!

…..men i baksetet på vei hjem begynner likevel en litt euforisk kjæreste og min sønns kompis å lete opp ledige leiligheter og flybilletter…..

før jeg vet ordet av det er leiligheten booket…..

uten at jeg har sett et bilde….

«Den er kjempefin» jodler kjæresten fra baksetet

….selv det faktum at de har et kjøkken ( noe som jeg mener er obligatorisk i en leilighet) imponerer min kjære på dette tidspunkt….

jeg kjenner svetten piple fram i pannen

Så finner de kjempe billige flybilletter ned til Spania..

«Vi finner billetter hjem igjen senere – det ordner seg» proklamerer en lett brisen globetrotter…

Jeg kjenner adrenalinet boble, har mest lyst å skrike – men prøver å beholde roen…

20170528_133244

Neste dag begynner jakten på flybilletter hjem igjen, men selvsagt er de svindyre….

til slutt finner jeg noen som er helt ok i pris, men 4 dager senere enn planlagt.

Jeg føler meg vågal og booker dem uten at vi har noe sted å bo de siste 4 dagene av ferien…

«DET må vel ordne seg???» tenker jeg………..mens bilder av meg og kjæresten sovende på et skittent fortau flimrer over netthinnen…..

en fetter med hus ikke så langt derfra – kommer heldigvis til vår redning ved å tilby oss å komme på besøk til dem de siste dagene…

puh…..

Jeg booker leiebil fra flyplassen og til resten av oppholdet og puster lettet ut

Nå er alt klappet og klart…

JEG BEGYNNER Å GLEDE MEG – DET ER JO BARE 2 DAGER TIL VI SKAL REISE!!

……OG DET ER MELDT 30 GRADER OG SOL

badenymfe

Så kommer noen kryptiske meldinger på Tripadvisor kontoen

fra utleier av leiligheten;

Kort fortalt; LEILIGHETEN ER IKKE LEDIG!!!!

panikken er tilbake….

…..MEN han har en annen leilighet vi kan leie……

puh ( igjen)…

noen uforståelige meldinger frem og tilbake

og så plutselig en ny alarmerende melding tidlig i går morges:

«There is no booking ,trip advisor gave your deposit back and I’m not allowed to contact you due to there rules sorry»

Hvem leser ikke den meldingen som at vi ikke får leie leilighet likevel?????

KONTROLLFRIKEN FRIKET DERVED UT!!!

enstyle1497435617297

Kjæresten ble dradd ut av sengen  før fuglene våknet –

det var meldinger til trip advisor og utleier –

(og det var ikke hyggelige meldinger!)

telefoner til alle som hadde et snev av tilknytning til saken  –

og tekstmeldinger til kreti og pleti……

jeg saumfarte stedet for andre boliger og fant kun store villaer til ekstreme priser

jaja dette blir en dyr ferie tenkte jeg, nesten klar for å booke en av dem…..

men så kom endelig svaret fra utleier noen timer senere:

«My friend , you are not understanding what I’m saying there is a apartment for you here no problem at all , but you need to go back on TripAdvisor again pay a deposit then I except it you then pay the balance and we can then get each other’s contact details 
Our hosting time expired before we completed the booking»

Biggest bitch ever!!!

Todays post in English

Yes I can be some times…

Luckily my boyfriend forgives faster than the rain falls in Bergen 🙂

…..and let me tell you; that is damn fast!!

 

img1501691123243

And what was the reason for my behavior??

GOLF 😦

Or more precise my failed attempt to play golf ….

I have been struggling with the game for a long periode now…

and a couple of weeks ago I just snapped completely 😦

I was ready to sell my golf clubs

….all golf vacation plans were on hold

and I cursed every hour spent on the golf course…

My poor boyfriend…

He saw the long awaited golf vacation disappear in front of him…

as his attempts to comfort or support me failed completely..

SHAME ON ME!!!

20161007_135651

But I did manage to pull my self together,

and at the same time my son Mats came to my ( our 🙂 ) rescue yet again 🙂

20170801_153023

He is the best golf trainer in the world – at least for me!!

He sees everything I do wrong

and he knows exactly what to do to make me change things..

So after hours on the training range, where I hit ball after ball under his instructions – I finally got it again… 🙂

We than went to Meland golf resort ( right outside Bergen) and I had a marvelous first round!!!

I got a par put ( that means I got the ball in the hole in the right amount of shots as if I didn’t have any handicap at all) And I was the only one who manage that on that round!

 

20170731_114520                               «the par put»

Of course I celebrated with a beer after the round 🙂

20170731_174119

The day after we went to Voss ( up in the mountain , approximately 1,5 hour from where I live) And I played better than I have for a long time!!20170801_175357

I have to say that I appreciate so much the patience that my son Mats, his buddy Jens and my boyfriend are showing me… ( all 3 in the picture)

They support – help – boast and never makes me feel that I am a shitty player ( wich I am sometimes)

And when I do snapp and yell words that a mother never should yell in front of her son or the friend of her son – they laugh out loud…..and thats all right 🙂

hoppende glad

because right now I am jumping with joy and I am super ready for golf playing yet again…

I have been told that tis is the most frustrating game of all – and YES it is!!

But it is also so much fun when you do well!!

The bitch is put back in the closet and back is the sweet, nice and good girlfriend….

and now the plans are set!!

Saturday we re leaving for Spain and Alende golf club

alende golf

We will stay here for a week – thank you Jens for suggesting it! 🙂 🙂

after a week we will stay with family who owns a house not far from there 🙂

Thanks for the hospitality! we are so looking forward to it!

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SUN – HEAT – GOLF AND VACATION

❤ ❤ ❤

Update will come!!

 

 

 

Verdens største drittkjerring!!!

Ja det kan jeg faktisk være av og til…

Heldigvis har jeg verdens beste kjæreste som tilgir raskere

enn regnet detter ned i Bergen  🙂

img1501691123243

Og hva var så årsaken til min dårlige oppførsel???

GOLF 😦

Eller rettere sagt: min mislykkede forsøk på å spille golf…

Jeg har vært i en fryktelig bølgedal med spillet mitt over lang tid….

og for noen dager siden klikket det bare fullstendig 😦

Jeg var klar for å selge køllene mine

…..alle planer om golf ferie var innstilt

og jeg forbannet alle timer jeg hadde brukt på golfbanen så langt….

Stakkars kjæresten….

Han så den etterlengtede ferien forsvinne i det fjerne….

samtidig som ethvert forsøk på å støtte/trøste meg falt på stengrunn…

FY MEG!!!

20161007_135651

Men jeg klarte heldigvis å ta meg sammen, samtidig som  min sønn kom til min( vår) redning nok en gang 🙂

20170801_153023

Han er verdens beste golf -trener ihvertfall for meg.

Han ser med en gang hva jeg gjør feil

og han vet hvordan han skal få meg til å endre på ting…

Så etter timer på golf-range ( treningsbane) hvor jeg slo ball på ball under hans instruksjoner – fikk jeg det endelig til igjen… 🙂

Deretter dro vi på Meland golfbane hvor jeg hadde en fantastisk første runde!!!

Jeg fikk par på et par 4 hull ( dvs at jeg fikk ballen i hullet på så mange slag man skal om man ikke har handikap!) og der fikk ingen av de andre så god score!!!

20170731_114520                               «par putten»

Det ble selvsagt feiret med en øl etter runden 🙂

20170731_174119

Dagen etter dro vi til Voss hvor jeg også spilte mye bedre enn på lenge…

20170801_175357

Jeg må få si at jeg setter utrolig pris på både min kjære sønn Mats, kompisen hans Jens  og ikke minst kjærestens tålmodighet…( alle 3 på bildet )

De støtter – hjelper – skryter og gir meg aldri følelsen av at jeg er dritt dårlig…( selv om jeg er det i blant…)

Og noen ganger når jeg skikkelig klikker og roper ord som en mor aldri burde rope i påhør av sine barn – ei heller kompisene til sine barn – så ler de godt…..og det er helt greit 🙂

hoppende glad

For nå er jeg hoppende glad og super klar for golf igjen 🙂

Har hørt det er et ekstremt frustrerende spill – og JA det er det….

Men også utrolig gøy når man får det til!!

Dritt-kjerringen er stengt inne på kottet og tilbake er den snille, søte og gode kjæresten…..

Og nå har vi planene klare!

Lørdag drar vi til Spania og Alende golf club

alende golf

Her skal vi være i en uke – takk til Jens som foreslo det 🙂 🙂 🙂

Deretter skal vi være 4 dager på besøk hos familie som har hus ikke så langt der fra 🙂Tusen takk for gjestfriheten!! Vi gleder oss veldig.

VI GLEDER OSS TIL SOL – VARME – GOLF OG FERIE

Update kommer!!

 

 

 

Having a bad hair-day????

Todays post in English

My hair grows incredible fast

it has always been like that

As a teenager I was so afraid to eksperiment with different hairstyles

If I cut it short one summer

it would be just as long the next if I wanted it to

I loved to change

try all sorts of colors

not all my project was a success…..

Today I was planning to give you a tour of all my hairstyles from the beginning right up to today…

 

MY FIRST HAIRSTYLE, STILL UNTOUCHED BY HUMAN HANDS….

20170727_122804

THE FIRST YEAR OF MY LIFE, MY MOTHER HAD A STRONG IMPACT ON HOW I LOOKED…

I WONDER WHAT SHE WAS THINKING….

20170730_185517I can understand why I wouldn’t smile on this photo…maybe my brother, ( who is smiling beside me) is the one who cut my hair??

20170730_185445Side parting of the century and look at the pattern of the dress!!!

At the small village where I lived my first years,

there was a hairdresser who had her salong in the basement of her house,

She cut the hair of all the kids in the area

Which was fortunate actually….

I wouldn’t want to be the only one showing up for school wit this hairstyle…….

OMG……

Getting older, I finally got to choose my hairstyle my self and I wanted it long…

notice the curtains in the picture on the left…

 

The hair was pretty long after a while….

20170730_185405

But then I got bored with it, and cut it off…

20170730_185910

And then it was time for my confirmation…..

Again my mother took me to the hairdresser

again someone else was deciding my hairstyle….

 

20170730_185714No comment….

I was a foreign exchange studen in the US and of course I had to get my high school picture taken..

20170727_115725

I didn’t trust any hairdresser in the US

So I didn’t cut my hair that year

as a result my hair was pretty long when I returned home

and at that time curls ( hair perming) were quite popular

20170730_185250

And the long hair stayed for some years – in different styles

20170727_114451

20170730_185735

BUT THAN I GOT BORED WITH IT AGAIN

AND I CUT IT SHORT…

20170727_114438

I went from hair to the middle of my back – to very short and orange….my boyfriend didn’t even know I was going to the hairdresser……and he cried when I go home…

THE SHORT HAIR STAYED WITH ME FOR A WHILE AND ALSO CAME IN MANY DIFFERENT STYLES….

20170730_090703

 

SUDDENLY I GOT TIRED OF IT

AND LUCKY ME

IT GREW BACK VERY FAST

AND THAN IT WAS LONG AGAIN

 

20170730_185753

I repeated the success of cutting it very short when I it was long. one more time…

At that time it wasn’t only my boyfriend who was crying…

One of my sons, who was 7 at the time, sat outside our house crying his eyes out

«What has happened» someone asked him

And my son replied;

«My mom is bald»

THE LATER YEARS I HAVE VARIED BETWEEN LONG – HALF LONG AND SHORT HAIR….

I MAY NOT EKSPERIMENT AS MUCH AS I DID RIGHT NOW….

BUT THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO CHANGE YOUR HAIRSTYLE

IT IS JUST AS FUN, AND NOT AS LASTING…

 

RIGHT NOW MY HAIR IS PRETTY LONG, BUT WHO KNOWS? IT CAN BE SHORT BEFORE YOU KNOW IT….

air condition

I WISH YOU ALL » A GOOD HAIR – DAY»

❤ ❤ ❤

 

 

 

 

 

ELDRE INNLEGG

FY FLATE!!!!!

EG E DRITGO I GOLF!!!

Jepp det er helt sant!!!

Ihvertfall er jeg dritgod i golf  – i Spania!!

Jaja……alt er jo relativt….

Jeg truer nok ikke Tutta med det første…

PGA får vente et par år til…😀

Men jeg spiller mye bedre enn jeg har gjort…

20170806_191633

Her er et utdrag fra et tidligere blogginnlegg hvor jeg forklarer hvordan «handicap» fungerer i golf;

Et par 4 hull betyr at man skal ha ballen i hullet på 4 slag uten handicap og da har jeg som regel 3 ekstra slag – altså 7 slag. Bruker jeg 8 slag får jeg bare 1 poeng og bruker jeg 9 slag får jeg ingen poeng. Men klarer jeg det på 6 slag så får jeg 3 poeng og 5 slag så får jeg 4 poeng etc….

På en 18 hulls runde skal man ha 36 poeng for å spille til handikappet sitt, som man sier, altså få 2 poeng på hvert hull, men det er en buffersone som gjøre det greit å spille litt under. Får man mer enn 36 poeng, så skriver man seg ned til lavere handicap ( dvs man har blitt bedre) Har man slått dårlig og gått under buffersonen så skriver man seg opp igjen ( man har altså blitt dårligere 🙂

Jeg begynte på 54 og har nå 49 i handicap. Målet er 36 i år 🙂

ER DERE MED?

Jeg reiste altså ned hit med 49 i handicap og det har jeg hatt i hele år….

I vår og sommer har jeg slitt med spillet og selv ting jeg fint klarte tidligere har vært elendig…..

Men før vi reiste hadde jeg meg noen timer på range ( treningsbanen) med min sønn og ting begynte å løsne.

Ikke minst fikk jeg til svingen med Driveren min  – og det er viktig for det er den vi slår med når vi begynner på et hull – og den skal vi slå langt med…..

golf redigert

Når jeg ikke klarte det, ble jeg liggende langt bak og da er det vanskelig å nå frem til hullet på få slag…

golfball

Men så kom vi hit

til vakre omgivelser

alende golf

tørre baner

feilfrie gressplener på fairway ( = den lange gressplenen som vi spiller på før vi kommer frem til hullet og som har litt høyere gress enn green = plenen rundt hullet)

20170807_180504

greener så flotte at vi lurer på om det er et teppe vi spiller på……..

 

20170806_122126

OG JEG SPILLER DRITBRA!!!!

Som dere leste lenger oppe – så skal man ha 36 poeng for å spille til sitt handicap

Jeg fikk 44 på første runde!!!! og datt helt ned på 41 i handicap!!

Neste dag hadde jeg 9 færre ekstra slag fordi jeg hadde fått nytt handicap og jeg var litt redd for at det skulle bli veldig vanskelig å spille så godt igjen….

Da fikk jeg 41 poeng!!! Og nådde dermed målet i år; 36 i handicap!!!!

20170807_144409

Det ble selvsagt feiret på terrassen til klubbhuset som seg hør og bør 🙂

20170808_120158

Og ikke bare det – jeg har ikke mistet en eneste ball enda….jeg spiller på samme ball som jeg begynte med…..

 det er faktisk en bragd i seg selv……

det betyr at jeg ikke har slått i vannet eller inn i skog og kratt……ihvertfall ikke uten å finne ballen igjen 🙂

20170808_142349

Jeg er storfornøyd med å ha nådd 36 I handicap – det var målet i år…..

Blir spennende å komme hjem og spille i Norge igjen…..

Våte tunge baner er nok ikke like tilgivende….ballen ruller ikke så langt og det er tyngre å slå i vått og langt gress ……

Men i verste fall får jeg bare flytte ned hit 🙂

Dette er det livet jeg var ment til å leve 🙂

20170808_163046

HA EN STRÅLENDE DAG ALLE SAMMEN -DERE FINNER MEG PÅ GOLFBANEN

WORRIED!!!!!!

Todays post in English

We finally went on our vacation….

That was my first worry; would we go anywhere at all this year??? Or would we end up staying home in the pouring rain, playing golf at soaked fields?

We hadn’t booked anything when the vacation started, but there where some loose ideas….

And then suddenly…..within 2 days the trip to Spain was booked…..

With the airline Norwegian…..

received_10155149537675667

So then my next worry surfaced……delay…….that seem to be  Norwegians trademark this summer…

I might be a bit unjust saying that – I have travelled with Norwegian many times, 3 times to Thailand among others – and they have always been  right on time….except for this March when we had to stay a day longer in the Canary Island due to delay…

But there has been a lot of delays this summer – so I was worried……

BUT

Norwegian was punctual both in leaving Norway and arriving Spain

We had booked real cheap tickets to Murscia ( wich is about an hour drive from the resort we were going to) and the plane was not full at all:

received_10155149538055667

We landed as I said right on time – both suitcases and golf gear came quickly, which I also had worried about…..wouldn’t be the same on a golf resort without our golf gear…

And it was hot!! Very Hot: 31 degrees celsius / 87,8 farenheit at 8.15 pm)

murcia

…..we walked straight to the shutlebus who drove us to the rental car company. Where they tried to sell us several » very cheap» insurances for the car, but this control freak had already read all the small letter writings and knew we had all the insurance that we needed 🙂

As a «penalty» we had to pay a deposit for 1000 euro, which we will get back when returning the car undamaged……so no it is placed in a garage and will only be used in an emergency;)  so no worries there at least 🙂

Another worry I had was how we would fit all the luggage into the little car we rented??? we had 2 golf bags + a large and a small suitcase and our self!….I was pretty sure the car didnt have a roof rack….

It turned out just fine….I couldnt see shit out the rear window,but no suitcases were left behind.

And then it was the drive…..on a highway in a small Fiat….with all the crazy Spanish drivers in front,on the side and behind…anf the sudden dark as if someone has hit the lightswitch..

Of course I was the driver – my boyfriend doesnt like airplanes so he medicates his anxiety with Underberger🍹

Ergo;  » he is not a designated driver!»

The drive started with a fight in the first roundabout ……- but we were smart and blamed it on the GPS lady…so we could stay friends……

The rest of the drive went just fine! Little traffic the most of the way and GPS is really Gods gift to tourists on the road…..We drove straight on to the resort and arrived at 10 pm Saturday evening.

My next worry was the apartment….It wasn’t the one we originally wanted to book, and the pictures the landlord had sent from this one, looked like something from grandmas youth….. but when the pictures arrived we had no choice, the tickets were booked and we needed somewhere to stay…

We also looked up the landlord; John on facebook and OMG!!! – not very smart to put photoshopped pictures of your self with long hanging tits when you are in the business of renting out houses…!!

I was very apprehensive and didnt know that the photo wasnt real…..and when we texted him to tell him we had landed he answered with this text;

«Sorry for how I will look – red head from sunburn and Ginparty with my friends tonight»

20170807_083954

But John was a real nice guy – he met us at the gate – showed us the garage and took us to the apartment ( wich looked much better than the photos) And he had bought us water and a bottle of champagne!

img1502088892716

FINALLY WE WERE HERE!!!

I WISH YOU ALL A DAY WITH NO WORRIES

❤ ❤ ❤

 

The «control freak» is freaking out!!

Todays post in English

OMG

Yesterday morning there was a complete chaos in our house…

the day before we had been in the mountains ( voss) to play golf..

 

20170801_110233

in our bag we ha a couple of beers each…

it was our vacation and my son had promised to drive home

 

20170801_175357

After 18 holes we went for pizza before driving bak home

in the restaurant we started to talk about going to Spain to play golf next week

as said, it was our vacation – but we had not made any plans yet…

«we´ll look into it when we get back home» I said

I dont like to order or make bookings with my phone – I NEED a computer – I NEED to be able to investigate every possibility – I NEED to make the booking myself – I NEED full control!

YES I AM A CONTROLFREAK!!

…but in the backseat on the way home, my then euphorically boyfriend and my sons buddy  started to look up available apartments and airline tickets….

before I knew it the apartment was booked…

without me seeing any pictures…

«It looks great» my boyfriend jodles from the backseat..

even the fact that it has a kitchen ( which I think is quite mandatory for an apartment) excites my boyfriend at this time….

I can feel the sweat break at my forehead…..

And then they find very cheap airline tickets going to Spain..

«we´ll find the return tickets later – it will all turn out great» the globetrotter in the back proclaims…..

I can feel the adrenaline starting to boil – I want to scream – but I try to keep calm….

20170528_133244

The next day, we start the hunt for plane tickets for the return, of course they are insanely expensive…

but finally I do manage to find some at an ok price, but 4 days later than we had planned to go back home…

I feel brave and book them without having any place to stay the last 4 days in Spain…

«It has to work out – right? » I think to my self, while images of me and my boyfriend sleeping on the dirty pavement in Spain, runs trough my head…

A cousin of mine who owns a house not far from there – luckily comes to our rescue and invites us to stay with them for the last days of our vacation.

puh…..

I book a rental car from the airport and for our entire stay in Spain –

and finally I can breath normally again…

Now everything is ready!!

AND I AM STARTING TO LOOK FORWARD TO IT ALL – IT IS ONLY 2 DAYS AHEAD!!!

AND THE WEATHER FORECAST ARE PROMISSING 30 DEGREES ( *C)  86 (*F)

Then som cryptic messages are arriving on our Trip advisor account…

from the guy renting out his apartment;

In short: THE APARTMENT ISNT AVAILABLE!!!

the panic is back…..

…..BUT he has another apartment we can rent if we want…

puh ( again)…

some strange messages back and forth

and then suddenly an alarming messages arrived yesterday morning:

«There is no booking ,trip advisor gave your deposit back and I’m not allowed to contact you due to there rules sorry»

Who does not read that messages as if there is no apartment for us???

AND THE CONTROLFREAK FREAKS OUT!!!

My boyfriend got dragged out of bed before the birds woke….

there were messages to the landlord and trip advisor…..

( and it was not cosy messages!)

phone calls to anyone who might have the slightest connection to the case…

and text messages to who ever I thought of at the time

I looked everywhere for some other apartment to rent – and I could only find big villas  in an extreme price range

«Well this is turning out to be one hel…… of av vacation» I thought – ready to book one of the houses…

But finally an answer from the landlord came:

«My friend , you are not understanding what I’m saying there is a apartment for you here no problem at all , but you need to go back on TripAdvisor again pay a deposit then I except it you then pay the balance and we can then get each other’s contact details 
Our hosting time expired before we completed the booking»
