Out with the old

New year's eve dinner

How fast 2016 flew by! Here was my lineup for the last day of the year…

Eirik and I decided to go with a special dinner consisting of… whale steak! It is illegal outside of Norway, Japan, and Iceland, so of course I wanted to try it while living here. We enjoyed this delicacy with mashed potatoes and stir-fried vegetables and mushrooms, after a delicious soup for appetizer.

We were planning to watch fireworks on the rooftop of our building at midnight, but it was too foggy to see anything. Nonetheless, we counted down to the new year on the roof with our neighbours, then headed back to our apartment for cava and crème brûlée. Just how I wanted to end the old year and begin the new one – with my love by my side ♥

Today, we woke up to the sun shining through the balcony window. What a great start to the year already!

Hope you all have a great first day of the year. I cannot wait to see what 2017 brings! 😉
