“Wakey! Wakey!” shouted George!Look Darcy! No snow outside! Let’s go outside!But we still had to put on our jumpers as it was cold. We left our hotelFunny name for a hotel, don’t you think? So we had to ask.
We were told that the area, Tjuvholmen, an islet, used to be overrun by robbers and smugglers in the 18th century. Today Tjuvholmen is obviously gentrified!
And we have discovered an area just behind the hotel where we were so happy to find some “greenery” for our walkies.They even supply poo bags!There are lots of public art scattered around the islet.We walked around the maze of very modern buildings with CatarinaLots of shops and restaurants – and its near the harbourAnd even advice along the way …
This quote says – “When all else fails, try common sense.”
We never quite expected to be in Oslo on this last day of the year – and we have been nicely surprised. The hoomans always say it but this year, even we felt it had really flown by. We continued to be blessed with good health, adventures and friends – new and old. The doggy world has been quite active! LOL!
We’ve had some “achievements” – our blog made Vuelio’s ranking of UK’s Top 10 Pet Blogs!!! Number 2 to be exact!!! Yay! Totally unexpected and grateful that they rated and ranked us not by popularity (we’re definitely not the most popular dogs in the world of social media).
Along with all the adventures and events, there were times when we realised how things do not always go our way. Through the course of the year, we said goodbye to some of our hooman and pooch friends – Lucca’s daddy, Fenton, Jake in LA and my brother, Milo.
May’s comment: The last day of 2017 – in Oslo. Somewhat unexpected but so grateful to have been on this year-end journey to fulfill dreams and wishes that had long been on my list of things to do. May you continue to dream, to dare to dream, to make wishes in hope they will come true, to love and be loved and to live every day as if it is the first and to find joy in simple things. These are things I am constantly reminded of by Darcy and George.
Because of them, I see the world slightly differently from how I used to … even at their eye-level. 🙂
Because of them, I have made many new friends in the last six years – some for a reason, some for a season and some for a lifetime.Because of them, I dared to push boundaries – how will I continue my love for travel with the two beings who are important part of my life, how do I find places I can go with them as they prefer to be with me than not. And whoever thought I would be fighting their corner – doggy rights! LOL!
It wasn’t just the big things that are important but all the little things, a moment in time or a small gesture that can make a big difference – to a lifetime.
We thank you for being a part of our lives – for going on our journey with us. We wish you a blessed 2018 – and hope our paths will cross. xxx
