Memories of Oslo

Arriving in Oslo only 2 weeks after the tragedy that occurred on Utøya, we often sought comfort and reassurance in the beautiful landscape. Following the terrorist attack was a harsh and dark winter. Finding beauty in the wake of devastation is challenging, but Oslo has so much to offer: glittering snow in the few hours of sunlight each day, islands that transport you to a fantasy world, and breath-taking views of the fjords and the ocean are among the many treasures that surround Oslo and its inhabitants. The strength of the Norwegian people is even more inspiring than the landscape, and the combination of beauty and strength within the country grew more and more striking with each passing season.

Calling all aspiring writers!

I'm currently working with a group called Females of the World. We're looking for writers who are interested in submitting a short piece of writing to use in our online projects. It can be anything from a poem to a short story to a journalistic article. We'd love to hear from you! This is a great opportunity to brave a growing audience with a piece of your work! Any experience is good experience, right? :)



  1. I don't remember that terrorist attack....I mean it sounds vaguely familiar, but I cannot remember when it was.

  2. Yea, I remember that attack, it was horrible like any such thing done by a human against humans and humanity. We remember...

    You again give us wonderful inspiration, NIkki. Now with this females community :) I want to try too, like many other things in life...
