Brygghus 9

Brygghus 9

As a strong advocate for getting down and dirty when having a burger, I have never eaten one with a knife and fork. But, as Brygghus 9 taught me, there is a first time for everything.

Brygghus 9 is a restaurant and brewery in Trondheim, Norway. We couldn’t get seated for dinner in the restaurant on the first floor (reservations are necessary), but the beer cellar in the basement serves food from the same small menu. There’s a fun atmosphere in the cave-like cellar, you can accidentally yell weird things and no one bats an eye.

ROCKHEIM, WHERE MUSIC LOVERS UNITE

I can’t think of anything more embarrassing than someone stealing my iTunes account and sharing my music library with the world. I cringe at the thought of it.

Alesund Norway

ALESUND THE BEAUTIFUL

If there is a place that can teach you about life lessons such as, “I get knocked down, but I get up again” it has got to be the exquisite town of Alesund, on Norway’s western coastline. This town has seen struggle and rebirth. After a massive fire on the 23rd of January 1904, which took out the entirety of the city centre, Alesund was rebuilt into one of the most beautiful and admired places in Norway.

We only had 3 hours in there, which is not nearly enough time, but we tried to make it count.

The first order of business was food. We came across Lyspunket Cafe and almost didn’t leave. I’ve probably already convinced you to visit Alesund for it’s good looks but, if your not as superficial as I am, you must also visit to try this cafe.
