Trondheim adventures

Guess who is back in Norway? Never thought I’d come back – especially not so soon or in Winter. But here I am!

Got here pretty early. Dropped my bag at the hotel for later. Found a cute little café to have a cuppa because it is cold! Worked out how I was gonna spend the first day of being by myself in Norway.

The first Google maps attraction I came across was the old bridge. It gives a really beautiful view of cute houses reflecting in the river. The morning sunlight was gorgeous.

I then took a short walk to the cathedral, which is waaaay more impressive than I imagined. The architecture is beautiful. Got chatting to some old people on holiday and directed them to a café with WiFi.

After I went shopping (there are two shopping malls – both with a H+M!) because I left my favourite scarf in the last hotel by accident. Oops.

But I bought a new one! And found a few boats in the harbour that looked cool.

The way the water is so still and clear just makes for beautiful photos.

Then it was lunchtime, and after wandering around for a bit I settled for a ham and cheese roll in Starbucks with a matcha latte.

I explored some bookshops – I’m always quite impressed with the number of English books. Especially English books that I’d like to read!

Chilled in the hotel for a bit before finding a restaurant. An Italian was already full at 5:30pm and TGI Fridays was only doing drinks as the kitchen was being refurbished.

I found Egon by accident and it was pretty cute. Had a nice carbonara and it wasn’t awkward being by myself.

All in all, I really like Trondheim. It’s beautiful, everywhere feels clean and fresh, and I’m glad I got the chance to spend a day here.

The Darkest Minds Review

The last book I read because a movie was coming out was Ready Player One and I really wasn’t into it.

Unfortunately, the same has happened with The Darkest Minds.

The premise is interesting, but I just found the plot really boring. Nothing much happened.

Zu was my favourite character and I especially loved the scene in Walmart with her and Ruby trying on clothes.

And I enjoyed the bits where Ruby realises she’s 16 now and tries to shave her legs for the first time and stuff.

But this book just didn’t do it for me. Besides Zu, I didn’t feel attached to any of the characters.

Perhaps the sequels are better but I’m not sure I want to try them.
