Lucky

I haven’t gotten around to editing any more of the Mexico photos, but I just found these photos that I took last Saturday. We went for a drive around Ramfjorden, to check out the sea ice (we are hoping to go ice-fishing!). I had been back for less than 24 hours, was very tired (jetlagged) and still trying to adjust to the very different climate here… I guess I didn’t pay that much attention to my surroundings, but I took pictures anyway :) I then forgot about them, but found them on the camera tonight…

Mist over the fjord…

So beautiful! It made me realize how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place… Harsh but beautiful, something I do forget sometimes… Sometimes I only see the disadvantages: the cold (you can’t just walk out of the door, always have to put on many layers), the dark (though that’s getting better very quickly now), the slippery roads (my bruised knees ;) ), not seeing any flowers until at least May, no singing birds (unless you count screaming gulls)… but HEY there is so much more! It’s an incredibly beautiful place, and we really can just walk into the outdoors from our own house – I shouldn’t be complaining!

My sister is arriving tomorrow, and we’re going on an overnight ski trip over the weekend – how exciting! I’ve never done that before (not even in Summer), and finally feel confident enough :) We are taking a quite easy (almost flat) route, and not much distance, and staying in a mountain hut in the middle of nowhere. I’m really looking forward to it! More photos soon :)
