Thinking of Norway

Travel is always on my mind.

Recently, I started looking back at photos from previous travels. When I'm not physically traveling, I just reminisce while looking through all of the photos I've taken. I was reminded of my trip to Scandinavia in 2010. It was a study abroad trip I took with 20 other students in architecture school. This trip was such an amazing experience and I wish I could go back and do it all over again. During this one month summer trip, I visited Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Russia, and Finland. My classmates and I studied the historical, technical, and materialistic elements that define Scandinavian architecture. Since I can't hop on a plane and experience the beauty of Scandinavia once again (oh how I wish I could!), I thought I'd relive it through a blog series that will feature the photos I captured during my time there. I hope you all enjoy it!


Solvorn, Norway

After sitting on a ferry and taking in the gorgeous fjords that surrounded us, we stepped foot in Solvorn. Solvorn is a small village in Norway and I absolutely loved spending time there. Our time there was short, but it was really serene. During all the hustle and bustle of our trip, being in Solvorn is just what I needed. There was a little fog surrounding the village as we explored small shops and lovely views. My friend and I grabbed some tea from a small cafe. It was a little chilly and the birds were chirping softly. I couldn't stop smiling as we walked around the paths around the village. It was just perfect.
