Back In Australia + More Photos!

Hi everyone! Can you see the snow in my hair? We landed in Australia last night after a very long travel. I said in my last post that I would share more photos as soon as I got a hold of the cameras, so that's exactly what I'll be doing! I finally got to reunite with the camera and capture the very beautiful Switzerland (the pictures don't even do justice). Mum and I went together as we both share the passion for photography and it's nice to be just mum and me. 
The day before we left us five (mum, dad, my sisters and I) went up to the ski slopes! My sisters and I had quite a few embarrassingly hilarious tumbles. I even went straight into Emilie and the ski lady! My last fall was quite painful though, I tumbled with my legs all weird and my left hip popped (this happens at training for me anyway) and my right knee went stiff. I couldn't ski the rest of the way because my hip felt extremely loose and my knee just wouldn't bend or straighten properly. I could kind of walk though so I walked down (very slow and looking really weird I might add). I thought I'd sleep it off but instead the next morning I could barely put any pressure on it. After a little bit I could put pressure but it just wouldn't bend or straighten. That day mum and I went back up to those mountains as we couldn't bring the cameras when we went skiing but we so badly wanted to photograph them. The rest of the family went to a chocolate factory. Those little chalets in the image above are on the mountain that mum and I went back to, they're so cute!

The temperature was a bit of a shock after arriving back in Australia. I mean I knew it was going to be hot but oh my gosh I wasn't prepared! Anyways, I really hope you enjoyed this post and I will see you in my next one!

Snippet of Switzerland

I'm in Switzerland! We landed last Saturday night at 9pm. When my grandparents and my aunty picked us up I suddenly felt very tall. They're quite small people whereas my mum's side is very tall. My sisters and I definitely noticed how little French we remembered, though I've quickly picked it backup again since then. French was actually my first language along with Norwegian, though when we moved to Australia I obviously began speaking English. Because English is the common language between my parents it's become our main language and both Norwegian and French just sort of slowly slipped away. 

I've been wanting to capture so many photos and post them BUT my mum has all the cameras and lenses and she stayed in Norway for an extra week! So, unfortunately, there's been so many times that I've wanted to photograph but had to use my phone (which honestly just isn't the same). Anyways, I thought I'd still share a few of my phone photos, but I will be sharing better quality photos as soon as mum comes and she lands tomorrow night! Can't wait! 

These pictures are just little snippets and definitely don't do justice, especially the mountains! The scenery in Switzerland (and Norway I might add) is just beyond stunning. I'm so hoping to get some beautiful photos of the mountains. Oh and we also got some Swiss chocolate which is the absolute best!

Let me know in the comments where you're from or where you'd like to go one day :D
I have so many places I want to visit, especially Santorini Greece.

Norway Holiday - Girls Night In & Fun In The Snow!

These holidays have just gone so fast I can't believe I've been in Norway for over a month! During our amazing holiday, there's barely been a day where we haven't done something. Every day we've seen different friends and family, as well as going to the city, shopping, ice-skating and just simply having a great time. The other day we went and stayed overnight at our aunty's house. We made a delicious dinner and had a fun girl's night with chocolate face masks (so tempted to eat it!). The morning after we went out sledding with her dogs, who are by the way the sweetest dogs. My sister's and I were very excited to go out in the snow, despite me not being able to feel my hands because it was so cold! Going from 35 degrees Celsius in Australia to minus 12 degrees is definitely something.

Here are some photos!

I really wish the photo had been clear but I thought I'd still share it because I had a blast!

My sisters and I are a little bit sad that our stay in Norway is nearly over, though we still have Switzerland and we can't wait to see our dad's side of the family! We're flying out Saturday evening, so we're saying our goodbyes to all the family here before we go. I'm definitely going to miss everyone heaps, especially our cutest little cousins who we've had a lot of fun with!

Hope you're all enjoying your holidays!
