Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up ~ Pablo Picasso

On weekend I was got busy hiking here and there hence a late post 🙂

Weekend 85: On the mountains

weekend85_1weekend85_2weekend85_3

The following quotes seem to be connected.

I like the mountains because they make me feel small,… ‘They help me sort out what’s important in life.~ Mark Obmascik

Human life is far more important than just getting to the top of a mountain. ~Edmund Hillary

Weekend 83: Hiking what else

Nature is one of the most underutilized treasures in life. It has the power to unburden hearts and reconnect to that inner place of peace ~ Janice Anderson

When weather forecast predicts a couple of hours of sunshine before a rainy week then the only smart choice is to go out and be in nature. I am presenting some of such precious  moments.

Weekend 82: Midnight walk

To walk in nature is to witness a thousand miracles ~Mary Davis

July is the month of midnight sun in Norway. Due to the high mountains we do not experience the fantastic view of sunset – sunrise but anyways it doesn’t get dark at night in late june and july.

Here are some images from our late night walk along the river yesterday. It was very warm during day but extremely pleasant at night 😀

Weekend 82: Am I lost!

These days my work keeps me busy for more than necessary and besides the working hours are just 7 a day as we follow summer time schedule.

Yesterday I decided to take it easy and attended a farewell lunch party for a colleague and spent my evening laughing with jolly good friends. I could not stay late with the gang  as I was supposed to take a morning flight 😀 . Travelling early morning means  packing the bag before going to bed and the result, I forgot my sunglasses and temperature today is +25.

I have shared a clip from my journey in history on my instagram account. I think one needs an instagram account to see it. Link to my page is

The above image of oriental turtle dove was taken at TianTan Buddha in Hong Kong.

Weekend 81

After yesterday’s heavy rain we decided not to walk on tough terrain today rather chose country side for our walk with some light hiking on asphalt roads. It was cloudy with just a few light showers and temperature was perfect for a walk and especially going up hill.

While passing by the river we saw a duck who was desperately looking for his/her mate. It was just yesterday when we noticed this pair for the first time. The river is not flooding but the amount of water is none the less. The duck was making some sound but we could only hear the loud sound of the river. We stopped and watched this wonderful drama of hide and seek and were glad to see the happy ending.  The river is full of fishes during this time of the year which might have brought this young couple to this place.

Weekend walk: Simple pleasures

After a long, tough and busy week it’s Saturday. We planned a hike/walk, one of our favourite activities in the weekend.  We started just after breakfast as the weather forecast in the afternoon was cold and rain. We enjoyed our time in woods. The wild flowers, butterflies, singing birds and the lovely smell from wild surroundings was a treat to both body and soul.

May your weekend be filled with positive thoughts, kind people and happy moments.
