We moved to Ålesund, Norway!

After 18 months in Oslo, we decided to take a leap of faith and move to Rasmus’s hometown of Ålesund on the west coast of Norway. Why? Well, we figured “Why not!” I feel that having the opportunity to live in Europe is something so special, why stick to one city?! Besides, if it all works out well here, maybe we’ll even stay!

This town has a special place in my heart. For starters, it’s Rasmus’s hometown. He grew up here and only has the best of memories. His parents and the majority of his extended family live here, as well as his 97 year old grandfather, Per. Not only that, but my very first horseback riding instructor from when I was just 4 years old, whom I lost contact with for about 20 years and reunited with just last year, I found out not only grew up in Ålesund but actually relocated back to here after living in the US for many years!

I truly look forward to sharing my experiences from this special city with you!

Not only will I be blogging about local businesses, activities, and lifestyle things to do here in the greater Møre og Romsdal region, but I will actively be taking freelance projects! Particularly those with a luxury and/or outdoorsey flair!

Whether you are a local store looking for an English voice/perspective to review your business or hotel, or if you are a new company who needs a story written, or whether you are an international brand looking to have photos of your product taken in the majestic Norwegian mountains and fjords, there is no job that is too big or too small. Some of the most majestic and perhaps unknown locations in the world are right at my fingertips, some of which being Godøyfjellet, Geirangerfjord, Stranda ski mountain, the art Nouveau buildings, the puffin island, the list goes on. If you can dream of the article, ad, or photo, I can do it.

Thank you again and please comment!

Love,

Brooke

    1. That’s great! One of the coolest parts of Norway, aside from the landscape, is learning about Norwegian people. Their social norms are unlike anywhere else in the world, and very difficult to understand. Everyday is like a puzzle. Good luck on your adventure, you won’t regret it!

    2. I find that they are also very respectful, which was such a surprise when I visited in May. I am sure I’d learn more of their social norms too, wherever I end up.

      Many of my photography/blog ideas would require having a base in Europe. Plus, I already felt like I belonged. Something that hasn’t happened here in the States. I’ll keep you updated on my progress for eventually moving to Norway.
