Some Quality time into the Wild

If I want to forget about the world and all its problems, I always go riding into the wild. Just me, the horse and a dog or two. This day I choosed Nike, and she is always ready for a great run in the bush! I also brought Dakota, which is the easiest dog to…

Exploring my own town

If you live in a town for a long time, you’ll be suprised to see that there are always more to discover! Especially if you get visits of people that see your town for the first time. That just happened to me… A Norwegian lady came to visit me and we ended up talking to…

Following new tracks in the neighborhood

Even if you’ve been living in the same place for many years, you might still discover new tracks! Lately we’ve been more into  biking than horse riding. The main reason is that our son has finally learned to bike, and it’s a great activity for the whole family. The horses have always kept us separated…

A new hair style!

Our hair style is something very personal and important for everyone. After months of research online and waiting for the right moment, I did it! I just couldn’t wait to have long hair until it grows out by itself. I’ve tried for years, but I always end up cutting it before it gets long. As…

A strange visit at “una piola” in Turin!

Sometimes things just don’t exactly go as you planned… Friday night I was going to Turin to pick up my husband that has been travelling for work. I had put on some new summer clothes and I was ready for a cool night out on town! Only us…   No parking We decided to go…

Adapting to a new country

It’s always hard to adapt to a new country. Maybe I’ve mentioned it before, but the horses have always been my best support. I became a horse addict as soon as I became a teenager. The horses helped me through the difficult years when you try to find yourself. I used to ride small horses, like Islandic horses…

A new and healthy life

It started out with a gift from some friends. A big package waited for us in the back of their car… When I realized it was a juice machine I was stunned! The first time I drank a juice from a similar machine was at their home. Since then I’ve been thinking about buying one myself….

Last day by the sea

It’s a big change going from the Mediterranean sea to the northern alps. Both the climate and the food is different. Arma di Taggia is known for the “Olive Taggiasche”. Before going to see the final of the Barrel on the Beach we had a big lunch. The final race is about winning money or…

Barrel on the Beach 2017

I’m finally in bed after a quite exciting day! Barrel on the Beach is a unice combination of beach life and country life. I actually spent most of the time watching my son playing in the sand than watching the race, but it was great anyway! My son took his first swim of the year,…

Changing cars!

It’s so true! You can actually become really close to a car… I’ve spent months to decide if I should buy a new and bigger car or not! In the end I did the move. I decided to sell my little sweet four wheel drive Panda on Internet. After just one day it was sold!…

Biking among horses in the famous royal park “La mandria”

What a wonderful way to spend a warm and sunny Sunday after a whole week in the cold North… This is a quite unusual sight in Italy. Horses running free with their foals and friends! Normally you see them inside the stables or in small paddocks, one by one. It was such a nice ride (even…

Some horse breeds I met up north!

We’re again on the airport of Oslo, heading from north to south. While waiting for the plane, I’d like to tell you a bit about some typical nordic horses. The first one is “Nordlandshesten”. “Nordlandshest” (horse from the North lands) is an ancient Norwegian horse breed, and it’s also called Lyngshest. (After the small place…
