Hey there world - it's done!

I was thinking since Exams are coming up now, and the only reasonable thing to do would be to sit down and read the appropriate litterature in that coherence, it's about time I step up to the plate and introduce myself to these burning surroundings.

This is me moving into position...

Back in Trondheim I find myself extremely satisfied with the life we live here in Moholt Alle 22, Trondheim - Norway. We got absolutly everything we need (with the exception of some minor details, but really not that important in this context, the world is not as big as it once were, for example I can tell you that Spain is now only a couple of hours away). Every day is important, every day is educating, every day we're blessed with the presence of good friends, our familys (not that far away anyway), adventure, music, a lot of good food... and A LOT of laughter. We're lucky. We know.

This will not just be the media for telling you about our travels and the big beautiful/scary world out there. Nonono, we're gonna change it!
...and hopefully be able to contribute to making it a little bit better.

For now this is the recipe
AK will sing and I'll play, Am, F, Dm and G
Later we'll work out a more detailed plan
where we most definitely will be in contact with the hotel-man
Peace and Love
to the ones mentioned above
And to the rest of you as well
...guess I need to include you if this thing is gonna sell ;)

The American Dream

So, it`s time to stop talking about ourselves and start talking about travelling!

Ida will go to Germany in December for a short vacation, and as mentioned Anne Kristine is moving to the US for 3 months in January...those are the travel plans closest to us in time now.
Also, we just came back from Sweden, where we tried some of the finest things Sweden has to offer (cheap meat, alcohol and candy + bowling and kebab).

Anne Kristine:
Even though it will be sad to leave Moholt and Ida I`m so excited to move to the US!
I`ve chosen the "NO" option on all the questionaires asking me if I`m coming to the US to conduct any kind of terrorism (an example of a good preventative measure as a terrorist obviously would never lie about his (or her) intentions on a questionaire). So, it seems I`m ready to go..I just need a J-status visum, a DS-2019 and a thick selection of different forms and papers and then I`ll be on my way!

I`ll be leaving Oslo the 10th of January, and returning to Trondheim the 13th of April.
I`m going to Pennsylvania, to a city called State College, and I`ll be doing an internship as an English teacher (yeah, you heard me, I, me, the Norwegian will be teaching English in the US) in a high school called State College Area High School (very creative name indeed).

I will be travelling with a guy from NTNU going there to teach social science.
We will live in a student city much like Moholt (hopefully it will be equally nice!)And while I`m in the US another English teacher in-training will be staying in my room in Moholt (Kelly from Seattle).

The pupils "over there" will refer to me as Ms.Vasset, and I must refer to all other teachers by their last name, at least when I`m in the prescence of students.
I can not wear denim (which means I have no pants to use) or short skirts (which means I have no skirts to use, as my longest one was too short) - which leaves me in my panties..but, I have a sneaking suspicion that might be slightly frowned upon too.

I hope you all come to visit me (especially you!) :)
(just bring your nice pants in case)

A selection of Ida and AK

We obviously enjoy hearing ourselves sing.

We`re proud to be Norwegian, and we like to show it by wearing the flag apperantly.

We like to sit down and have a comfortable rest.

We have a sligthly different interpretations of how a viking would pose.

And we have our own style of dancing:

We`re Ida and Anne Kristine...I think you know us ;)

We have decided to get a blog where we can keep our friends and family updated on our plans to conquer the world. We`re planning many small and big trips in the future, and this is the place to keep track of us.

As you might know, our most extensive travelling plan is to travel through Latin/South-America from fall 09, but we`ll have lots of small and/or big events to tell you about before this.

Anne Kristine is moving to the US in January 2009 and this is where you`ll have the chance to read about what it`s like to party with Obama. Meanwhile, Ida will keep you posted on Moholt life!

So, stay tuned, and give us lots of comments! :)
