I want to be brief. It’s not because I am writing this post during Norway’s national day (Norwegian Constitution Day), because I’ve been celebrating all day, and I feel that it’s time to relax. The 17. May is one huge celebration in Norway, we get up early, and we’re outside all day, no matter what type of weather it is, and we’re waving our flags, singing songs and smiling.
The reason I want to be brief, is because I want to tell you about my next big project, and I want to go straight to the point. I am really passionate about this, and you’ll get a lot of information about it during the next weeks and during the next months. But today, I’ll just provide you with a few words about what I’m up to, and the reason why I have been having problems answering emails (hint: I’ve found the solution).
I am starting a vegetarian festival in an old fortress (Fredriksten fortress in Halden, the town I live in). The festival will be on 24. August, this year. It will be a food festival, and this is how the fortress looks from the harbor:
You might already know that I am a vegetarian, because I have written about it before, but I haven’t told you that, starting a festival like this has been a dream of mine. I want people to understand what vegetarianism is all about, but more importantly, I want people to get inspired by vegetarian food.
The vegetarian festival (the site is currently in Norwegian).
That’s it. That’s what’s currently happening in my life, and like I said, this is a huge deal for me. And, just thinking about it, makes me smile. If you’ve ever thought about visiting Norway, 24. August is a good time for a visit.
