Castles in Luxembourg

The Travel Channel

For my next trip to Brussels I were taking Friday off and staying until Monday, making it a long weekend, as we were getting a rental-car and driving south to visit the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and to eat more waffles of course!
As usual I left with the airport express train directly from work, this time on Thursday afternoon, and as usual the SAS-flight were delayed so it got quite late before I finally arrived. Also as usual I spent the waiting time reading a classic novel, this time having selected the dystopian "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card, a very gripping story about war, ethics and human nature.

Completing Gründerskolen

Working in Oslo

After getting home from Brussels there were at least one good thing waiting for me at home, a delivery slip saying that my DSL-modem had arrived! Finally I could start really using the net again, as opposed to just doing the most basic things over my 3G cellphone-connection. And then on Tuesday some guys showed up to install a wall-mounted oven in my bathroom as the floor-heating was broken when I moved in. About time I say, as winter is just around the corner and a ground-level apartment without gets really chilly along the floors, so now I've gotten everything in the apartment in order, just in time for the Wednesday arrival of Øystein and Carina from Gründerskolen, who will be staying at my place over the weekend during the Gründerskolen Fall Seminar, the completion of my days as a student!

Visiting Brussels

The Travel Channel

This weekend was the annual company fall-excursion, but I was instead going to back to Belgium to visit my girlfriend Carina. Most of the others left the office for the excursion just after lunch on Friday, so there were only a few people besides me there for the rest of the day. However we still managed to gather a small group to have a game of CX Darts, a weekly dart-competition with bottles of wine for the winners, and with so few contestants it was 50/50 odds, so I managed to take home a bottle before having to catch my flight to Brussels.

Getting settled

Working in Oslo

After enjoying the past two weeks in Brussels it was time for me to go back to Norway and start my own new life there. The morning flight brought me 'home' and after shopping and making a microwave-dinner it was time to start scrubbing down my new apartment, during which I even managed to squirt Jif into my eye, which hurt like hell. Just like Carina's apartment this one was quite dirty, especially in hard to reach places, so I kept cleaning and unpacking most of weekend, only pausing to go downtown and get a BIT-baguette for dinner and a bus-pass for getting to Computas for my first day at work on Monday.
