Tropical Vibes

Here’s to New Beginnings!!!

As this year 2016 ends, I am leaving behind a lot of things that happened. Both positive and negatives. From a few new projects in the beginning of the year to quite a few experiences that was a little hard to chew and swallow. The last quarter of this year was not a very good […]

The “New” Grand Café, Grand Hotel Oslo

For not so long ago, the Grand Café, Grand Hotel Oslo opened again after a year of renovation. It was sad when they decided to close last year, after 140 years of service. A lot of people were disappointed. Including me and the Mister. Because it is one of our favourite cafés in Oslo. This was […]
