Sophie’s World has moved

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

Much as I like Boots’n’All – and that very cool Tibetan temple in the heading, I needed a more flexible blog. As of 1 January 2010, Sophie’s World has moved here. The posts here will be exported to the new blog little by little.

PhotoFriday: The Desert

Friday, January 1st, 2010

I’m drawn to the desert. So much that I sometimes wonder whether I was meant to live in it. In one way, the desert is the complete opposite of the snow and ice of home – the temperature and the relationship with the sun. In another way, the landscapes are the same: forceful, sometimes brutal, and magically beautiful.

So my first photo of 2010 is not wintry Norway, but the deserts of the United Arab Emirates. I saw plenty of desert sands last year – with and without the kids. More is to come in 2010; both Lebanon and Libya are on the agenda.

Where are you going this year?
Happy 2010 everyone – and happy travels!

Scandinavian and North Atlantic plans

Thursday, February 5th, 2009
I wish I could write South Atlantic plans. Those include the Falklands, Tristan da Cunha, St Helena and several bits of Antarctica. But these are still in the vaguer goal-stage, not yet in actual plans. The North Atlantic is far ... [Continue reading this entry]

Cafe de Paris Carnivore

Friday, January 30th, 2009

I entered a 100-word competition (clever idea) and severely cut down my Cafe de Paris story. Didn’t win - but got a good rating and some fun reviews. I like to ramble on, so it’s good to ... [Continue reading this entry]

A new story – in a new outlet
