Emigrating Norwegians

Skaffe bil // Getting a car

Leave a comment

Nå er vår hovedprioritet å skaffe oss en bil. Forsikring skal nok gå bra, selv om man må passe seg for å bli lurt. Det er dyrere her enn i Norge, men må man så må man. Vi kan ikke leve i Los Angeles uten bil. Vi var innom en bilforhandler i dag, men i vår prisklasse (BILLIG) er det nok best å kjøpe privat. Så i dag har dagen stort sett gått med til å titte rundt på craigslist. Om vi har bil til torsdag – som er dagen vi leverer fra oss leiebilen – blir jeg verdens gladeste jente, men dessverre er sannsynligheten for at det skal gå i boks så som så. Men man skal aldri si aldri, vi har fått gjort utrolig mye i løpet av kort tid her. I kveld skal vi faktisk på visning i West Hollywood! Tror nok det er mange om beinet på den, men det er uansett gøy å se.

Our main priority right now is to buy a car. Insurance will be ok even though we have to be careful not to end up paying way too much. It’s actually more expensive here than back home, but we gotta have it. We cannot live in LA without a car. We went to a car dealership today, but for our price range (CHEAP) it’s probably better to buy private. So today we’ve mostly been looking at cars on Craigslist. If we have a car on thursday – which is the day we have to return our rental – I’ll be the happiest girl ever, but the likeliness of that happening is not huge. But I can never say never, we have gotten so much done in such a short amount of time here, so why not this too. We are actually looking at an apartment later tonight in West Hollywood! We are pretty excited, but I think we have a lot of competition on it. It’s fun to take a look at it anyway.

I’m a Norwegian girl who is leaving the cold, icy north together with my husband to find out what’s happening on the other side of the world, more specifically Los Angeles.
