I took a job as a 'Project Engineer' in wind energy modelling. It's right up my alley as far as what I wanted to do. It's also in a nice office with big windows looking out over the fjord.

The view out my office window.

It is in a smaller town 1.5 hours out the fjord from Oslo, so I am going to move there when I get back from Sunnmøre (!!!) in mid April. I just made a really sweet agreement today, where I am going to rent and live in a cabin from then until mid June. It is on a hill, on an Island, in the fjord :-) fully furnished and with sleeping loft, yard and nice view. Oh, and it's cheaper than my room in Oslo. I don't have any pictures of it but will post in April when I take some.

Aw, that's awesome! Congrats! Take some pics of your new place!


yes, it was below 0F when i took that. but this week it has suddenly become warm and the precious snow is melting.

it's funny in oslo though because there are 'slide danger' signs on all of the sidewalks in the city. it's pretty legit though because 2ft-thick slabs of snow and ice are falling off of the buildings. no casualties yet that i know of, but will keep ya posted, haha.


oh, and my boss made the same suggestion about kayaking--the island the cabin is on is on the left in the pic.

would have been cool to ski across the sea-ice until it melts, but if you look closely in the pic you can see where they bring an icebreaker through every once in a while so boats can get out of the port.

so i would have to take an innertube or something along with the skis, haha.
