Emigrating Norwegians

Akkarfjord, population: 80

Vi har ikke hatt verdens beste vær her i nord, men vi har jaggu hatt det bra alikevel! Det siste døgnet har jeg og Maida tilbrakt i vakre, vakre Akkarfjord på Sørøya. Med en befolkning på ca 80 er det en bitteliten plass, men den har virkelig sjel! Her finnes det sauer, hunder, katter, reinsdyr, frittgående (!) kaniner og KAMELER! Jeg fikk gleder av å bli kjent med to gedigne mongolske kameler som heter Bor og Bestla og de var veldig tamme og søte 🙂

We haven’t gotten the best weather here in the north, but we have still managed to have a blast! Maida and I went to a beautiful place called Akkarfjord yesterday. It’s on the island Sørøya and has a population of only about 80 people. But it has such a soul! They have all kinds of animals there; sheep, dogs, cats, rabbits, reindeers and CAMELS! I had the pleasure of getting to know two huge mongolian camels called Bor and Bestla, they were super cute 🙂

På Sørøya har de helt nydelige sandstrender, dog det var en smule kaldt der. Vi hadde tenkt til å gå en lang tur i dag til blant annet et digert sandfjell, men så langt kom vi ikke. Vi måtte snu etter en drøy halvtime, da hadde vi allerede blitt kliss våte. Været her er barskt og veldig skiftende. Men selv om turen ble altfor kort var den likevel bra.

On this island they have the most beautiful beaches, but it’s very cold there now. We planned on going on a long hike to a huge sandhill today, but the weather turned on us, so after half an hour we had to throw in the towel and return to the hostel soaking wet. But it was still a good hike even though it was way to short.

Selv om jeg koser meg glugg ihjel her i nord er det en veldig viktig person som mangler. Per Christian og jeg har 4 års bryllupsdag i dag! Dessverre ble det slik at vi ikke fikk vært sammen i dag, men vi skal nok klare å ta det igjen når vi kommer hjem til LA.

Even though I’m enjoying Hammerfest and Akkarfjord there is someone very important who’s missing right now. Per Christian and I have our 4th wedding anniversary today! Unfortunately things ended up so that we’re not able to spend this day together for the first time since we got married, but I’m sure we’ll make it up when we get home to LA.
