The pink blogger!

Wow, I haven't been posting for over a week now. Days had gone by and this old lady had been so busssssy:) Anyway, you might be wondering why I call myself the pink blogger?  Well, this woman is in pink, isn't she? She is a blogger too, although not a famous one:)
What a coincidence too. My suitcase is in pink color. Well, I just borrowed it from my youngest daughter. It was her color of choice when she was 18.

Last weekend, I travelled to a place called Kragerø in Norway. Kragerø is popular among Norwegians (as well as foreigners) as a vacation destination during the summer. Now, it is wintertime, so it was not my purpose.

The reason for my trip to Kragerø was that I had been invited by my niece Lindsey and her husband to attend  their youngest son's christening.

Well, on that day, the weather forecast was not good. So, although I was looking forward for this trip, I left home with a heavy heart because I had to leave my cat. She couldn't be alone inside the house for so many days, so she had no choice but to sleep outside. Luckily, we have a roof covering our stairway. I put her sleeping bed outside our front door covered with wool blanket to keep her warm because it was minus degrees. Then I asked our neighbor to feed our cat while I was away. So thankful for having kind neighbors:)
Not only that, I thought that there will be cancelation of fast ferry boat and flights because of the storm.

We left home early, before the storm came and it went well until we arrive at the airport. This is a picture from the town. It snowed a lot.

As I said, there was a storm that day and our flight was delayed. We waited for our departure for many hours. My older sister and her husband were with me. But, we did arrived our destination safe and sound.  This is Lindsey and Christian's lovenest.

This is the entrance of their home at the back of the house.

Christian, Lindsey's husband fetched us and after a short visit to their house, he drove us to Villa Berglang Hotel where we would be staying for a few days.

We stayed at room number 11

Day after, God had blessed us with a wonderful weather, so we went out for a walk to see us around.

Tried to capture the beauty around, the nature of course, not me:)

The sun's magnificent rays makes these captions almost perfect.

Hope you are are still following because we are going to continue  roaming around.

The houses of the rich people:)
