I guess I lost motivation for blogging lately. I won’t stop, it just won’t be that often anymore. Here comes an update…
We came home from the states last night after an awesome trip in NY, NJ and Phoenix, Arizona. We spent the first two days at Scott’s grandparents house in New York, as his dads house was still without power after hurricane Sandy. Sandy left massive destructions over there. We wanted to go take a look at the beach in Belmar, but the police were everywhere making sure only the people that lived there were allowed in. This because the coastline have all these massive beautiful mansions that people were stealing things from. We saw the police and the military everywhere, lots of trees down, streets loaded with furnitures and stuff from the 1st floor of houses that was ruined because of flooding. One of them one block away from Scott’s dads house. His truck flooded and was totaled.
We really are lucky to live in Norway. It’s not that fun. But we do survive the rain. That’s all there is, right?
And then was the presidential election. That was exciting to be apart of. All the political discussions on the mall and everywhere we went… Why can’t just everyone do like Norway? : )
Oh well. So we found out that Obama won the election the second people turned their phones on when we landed in Phoenix.
Phoenix was hot! We had around 30 degrees celsius the first couple of days! Was awesome, so good to walk around with a dress in November. I wish I could’ve packed the warm wind in a suitcase and let it out right outside the front door, so it would be the first thing I felt every morning…
Scott was in Phoenix for PressNomics. I was there for pleasure. And shopping. And tanning. And swimming. And shopping. And reading. And Scott. And the after parties. 300 computer “geeks” gathered in one place. An experience.
We also took a day to drive up to Grand Canyon. Now, that was a breathtaking sight! It didn’t even look like planet earth.
And we saw “Flight”. If you don’t like flying already, you don’t wanna watch that movie. But it was good, and I could hear I wasn’t the only one sniffling walking out of the theater.
I read “Mornings in Jenin”. I have a total different view of the Israel-Palestine conflict now. I learned a lot. It was good!
Oh and we flew with all the celebs! First Jace Everett on the way to NJ, then Jordan Sparks home from Phoenix. Had to say.
So now we’re home again. Going back to NJ for christmas. In two years I’ve been to America eight times now. NY, NJ, Boston, Philadelphia, San Fransisco, Phoenix, Hawaii, Aruba… I love it there a lot, but as we say in Norway – Borte bra, men hjemme best!
Here’s a photo from Sedona which was about a two hour long drive north of Phoenix.
