About the blog(ger).

I'm a girl from a city by the sea in Southern California, who met a boy from the fjords of Norway. 

Days, weeks, months, and years went by while we skyped and visited the ends of the earth for each other. 

Just weeks after we got married, I packed up all my things and plopped them down in Northern Europe. In Bergen, Norway to be precise. 

We live here, generally quite happily. I struggle with all kinds of things in a place that is pretty much the opposite of what I grew up with, but through those struggles I find peace, joy, hope, love, and humor. I like to write about those things and share them here with you. 

Whether you're near and dear to my heart or simply a perfect stranger, I'm glad you stopped by.

  1. Hi Alyssa & Stian,
    My name is Natalie Sullivan and I'm casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We'd love to film in Norway and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The expats on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. They must also speak English fluently and can be buyers or renters for their homes. If you'd like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7717 or skype me at natalieesullivan. You can also email me at nataliesullivan@leopardusa.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.
