Hello from Norway!! We arrived Saturday afternoon and got to our apartment, took a snooze, woke up WAY later than we planned and I was so surprised it was still light out! I had forgotten the sun doesn’t set til around 9:30-10pm so we went out and did some evening exploring! I already am in love with Norway.

Atticus has been so good too, I was worried how he would do with the time difference but last night he slept for 5 hours then woke up once, I nursed him and he went back to bed right after and slept another 6 hours. It is super cold here, colder than I had thought and the most unfortunate thing happened… When we went to get our luggage all of the buckles to my duffle/roller were undone and a zipper was open with A’s raincoat hanging half way out. It was all black like it had just been dragged 10 miles on pavement and the rest of his hoodies, coats, long sleeve shirts, pretty much all cold weather accessories etc were completely missing. I was so bummed. Luckily I had exactly 1 coat (his scuffed up rain coat), 2 long sleeve shirts, and a sweater in my carry on to hold us over. I hate when stuff like that happens! I swear I have bad luck with luggage. Or maybe we just travel so often that odds are not in our favor. Anyways, all is good now and everyone is happy. Norway is AMAZING! Tomorrow we are off to Flam!

ps – Here is my post for my trip for traveling with a baby in case you missed it:)

  1. This looks like such a fun trip – you’re definitely giving me some travel destinations inspo! What is the nail polish you are wearing here, its such a nice orange & I can never find the right orange it seems without looking too pumpkin-y lol!
    Enjoy the rest of your adventures, I love your blog & follow you on all the social medias 😉

    Love,

  3. Oh my cuteness!! That hoodie!!
    Looks like yall are having too much fun!! YAY!

  4. Hey Amber! I just wanted to say that I love how you always travel with your baby and you haven’t let A set you back. It’s really important for women to continue doing things they love after having a baby and also cultivating this mindset and getting your child accustomed to traveling is very important too.
    I personally find it very inspiring! All the best from Malta

  5. Norway!!! So amazing you have had been all over the world. Can’t wait to see more pictures from this trip!

    1. It is beautiful here!! We are loving it for sure 🙂 Many more pictures to come!! Thanks for following along!! xo

  6. I don’t understand what they do with luggage once it leaves your possession that things like this happen. I mean, I know it gets thrown around, but doesn’t anyone with any courtesy work in airport luggage? Sheesh. Sucky you have to deal with that. But I hope it’s smooth sailing from here forward. Have a great trip.

    1. I know what you mean!! I don’t understand it at all either!! Makes no sense to me! Too many workers that have access to luggage I guess 🙁 Everything has been smooth since then, so we are happy about that!! We are loving Norway! Thanks for reading!! xo

  7. Hey Amber! I live in Norway, in Oslo and I love your blog! My husband and I are members of the church too so I get very inspired by your blog. Send me an email if you guys ever would like a tour or a norwegian cooked dinner!

  15. Looks a great trip so far! Sorry to hear about the stolen clothes. I have the problem with baggage getting lost and always feel like I am the only one in the world with that probably. Now I have a paranoia about missing luggage. I hate to hear you are having problems with it too, but it is nice to know I am not the only one. Can’t wait to see more of Norway!

  17. This looks so amazing and seems like it will be such an awesome trip! I can’t believe that happened and I remember other times you mentioning similar things happening with your luggage. Seriously, I never understand why people do those kinds of things. Plus, when you’re tired from traveling it makes it feel 10 times worse!! Hope it wasn’t anything that you guys cant replace! Enjoy your trip!!

    Love,

    1. It is beautiful here!! We are loving it so far 🙂 And yes!! The luggage was a bummer but oh well it’s okay now 🙂 I am not sure what happened exactly!! We can easily replace it all so that’s the good news! Thanks for your comment love!! xo

  18. Oh wow! Norway! I am so excited to live vicariously through another adventure! That is really unfortunate about A’s clothes. I have never had luggage problems,but I have never travelled anywhere. So maybe with all your extra travelling you are stealing up my bad luggage luck. I loved your travelling tips post a while back. when I do travel one day with my rad family, I will be looking to your adventures for ideas and your post for travel tips.

    1. It sure is gorgeous here!! I will have lots of pictures to come! And I know it!! We were bummed but it is all good now!! We have learned to bring extra clothes in our carry on so we were prepared 🙂 Luggage problems are the worst!! I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone! I am so glad you liked the travel tips! Thanks so much for the positive feedback!! xo

  19. It was so nice meeting you in Bergen! 😀
    Enjoy your stay in Norway!

  25. What a huge bummer about the luggage! Some baby somewhere is wearing the cutest clothes ever now..I like to think in those situations that someone else really needed that stuff. Makes me feel not so mad 😉

    x. Morgan

    1. It was a major bummer for sure!! We are headed to a kids store today to get more clothes so it will be fine!! And exactly!! Maybe some other baby is wearing A’s stuff?! haha! 🙂

    1. We are loving it here!! So much to see!! And yeah it was a bummer but we have totally forgotten about it so it’s all good 🙂 Thanks for reading!! xo

  26. That is terrible what happened to your luggage! I remember reading about when something like that had happened from one of your other trips, too! Hopefully that never happens again, I would be furious! But glad you guys made it safe! 🙂

    1. I know it!!! 🙁 Darn it! Oh well.. we are having a great time regardless!! Thanks for your sweet comment! xo

  27. My husband and i literally just took this exact same trip last week. Flåm was gorgeous and I’m sure you’ve already researched it, but the Flåm Railroad is definitely worth taking, as is the ferry from Flåm to Aurland- you have to see the fjords from the water. If you’re looking for a place to eat we ate at Aegir Brewery and Pub in Flåm. It has a cool interior and the food was great. And if you have a car of your own it’s worth driving now up to Stalheim viewpoint, it’s about 25 minutes from Flåm. Are you visiting Stockholm on this trip? I’m married to a Swede now (from AZ originally like you) and been living in Stockholm for 3 years so if you need any tips of places worth seeing I’m happy to offer some. 🙂

    Love your blog btw! Been following it for a while and it’s fun to see it become more and more popular.

    1. No way!!! How awesome!! Beautiful huh?! We loved Flam!!! Thanks so much for the heads up!! We also went to the Stalheim viewpoint and oh my gosh it was breathtaking!! I am glad you could experience it all!! We are not going to Stockholm 🙁 But I would love to someday!! If we ever come back I will get some tips from you 🙂 Thanks for your comment!!! I am so happy you are following along!! Love ya! xo

  28. So sad about the luggage – thing! It’s at that point that you woder why you even bothered to do everything following the air company’s guidelines. Do you think you’ll get the clothing back? Maybe it was still in the plane? Just an idea: we always wrap our suitcases in plastic foil! Don’t underestimate it, it’s like Scottish tape, haha!

    On another note, I have completely fallen in love with your minty jacket, the one you wore yesterday! Could you pretty please tell me where it’s from?? ^^ I found one on Asos earlier that looked alike, but feels like the one you’re wearing is even prettier! xx

    1. I know it!! I doubt we will get anything back 🙁 I don’t know if it fell out somehow or if someone stole the clothing!! So it’s hard to say! That’s a great tip about the plastic wrap!! We may need to do that next time!! Such a lame way to start the trip but we have since forgotten about it and we are having a great time!! 🙂 I am so glad you like the jacket!! It is actually from ASOS!!

      1. Yay, thanks! I saw it before, but the color definitely looks better in real life than it does on the site, in my opinion. I like the other, striped one as well, so hard to pick! What’s your opninion on them, fashion and quality wise?

        And the wrapping thing definitely helped us out many times. It just doesn’t appeal to the security people to cut all that open, plus: the suitcases aren’t only secured, they get less damaged too (we have lost many, many suitcases in the battlefield (read: plane) before haha). And crossing my fingers for A’s stuff, hope you’l get it back 🙂

  29. Oh my, so sorry to hear about your bad luck! I guess I must just be super lucky, because nothing like that has ever happened to me before. Glad to hear you guys are having a blast though! 🙂
