Tell us about the place you live:

I have lived in Oslo for a year and 3 months now and I’m not sure how much longer it will be. First I fell in love with a boy that lived here now I ‘m falling in love with the city. It’s placed in a perfect spot between the sea and the mountains. It has so many beautiful places to explore.

A perfect day?
