"Life is a wonderful journey" knerten's Profile

Travelling makes me happy

I'm lucky to have a job that comes with considerable opportunities for travel, few abroad, but plenty in Norway and especially so in my region in Norway, Møre og Romsdal. So, there's always a chance to fill up my VT pages with interesting and not so interesting tips.

    It is funny to find a person who is also fond of Ikeas. The truth is, we have been to Ikeas around the world too...Oslo,a few in France, a few in Belgium...couldn't remember the rest. We love their restaurant that serves good food for a cheap price!
