Day 9: Blogtember!

Today's prompt is simply: Self Portrait. 
This self portrait was shot using my iPad. I was sitting on the windowsill of my tiny hotel room in downtown Oslo, Norway. I really like the lighting and texture that was caught in the amateur shot.  It was the beginning of April, and it was still really cold in Norway. The town didn't have any snow, but when I rode the train in from the airport, snow covered the hill and countrysides outside of the city. I loved it because it was chilly, but the sky was completely blue and sunny. The streets were flocked with outdoor seating areas, and heat lamps turned on. This would never happen in Seattle! Oslo was my first ever overseas trip (I know, I know, it's sad it took me this long!), and I was loving it. It was the perfect intro to traveling outside of the US. The people spoke English, were super friendly, and I felt like I was walking around a movie set...That's how cute Oslo is.

Happy Friday, Y'all!

PS. What a crazy-busy week. I am super excited to catch up on everyone's postings this weekend.

This is such a beautiful picture! And no, it's not sad that it took you a while to get out of the country. There's so much to do in Seattle (from my small-town perspective), that I would think you'd be able to keep yourself occupied there ; )
