The Big Social Ski Day
We just had a social day out at work. We call it "ski day", which is something many employers in the public sector do in Norway once a year.
This is our day.
Only four of us went on this trip. Kaare, Hilde, Sofie and myself. First we hit base camp, loading off hot dogs, crisps, olives, beer, chocolate and the cake roll Hilde had made.
We made sure not to starve in the wilderness.
Note: Not wilderness. 15 minutes drive from home.
We cross country skied for an hour, uphills.
These are some of our views on the way up and down again.
It was a perfect day.
No we had to make a fire.
Yours truly finding wood (and slightly posing while at it)
This is something women have done for centuries. We know wood.
Hot dogs on fire.
I tell you Sofie is a devil fire maker. She knows the drill (even though she grew up far north in Norway with no trees).
She had brought reindeer skins to sit on.
And then there was coffee.
I wish all of you could have been there with me. I hope some of these photos will do.
Wishing you a nice May week:)
