Describe a happy Finn with one word: Sauna🤣 I also ended up finding two Norwegians sitting outside on this bench the night before. They were enjoying an evening sauna and I asked if they wanted a Finnish sauna experience. On the fifth round (throwing water on the stones + sitting through the heat) I’ve never experienced Norwegian men yelling that loud. Well, the men are ready to visit Finland now

We finally took Benjamin for his first real hiking trip. He did so great... probably because he pretty much slept the whole trip up and down. The only time he woke up was on the top to enjoy the views

No need to fly to anywhere tropical when Norway offers the same conditions🤪 (okay, the water might be a few degrees colder)

#ad Sometimes it’s worth waking up at 4am to see the sun giving you a wink through the window while rising up to start the new day. We had unreal experience in @manshausen_island relaxing, enjoying sauna with family and friends. Thanks @borgeousland for the experience!

When you think that you are in Bora Bora but you need to pinch yourself to realize you’re actually in NORWAY🤪 These crystal clear blue waters and white sandy beaches are the casual playground in Northern Norway. Such an amazing experience! Thanks @elisanilsen for borrowing the kayaks

We’ve enjoyed this summer to the fullest with our little guy growing so fast. It’s crazy to see that in one day he learns to sit and the next day something else. How amazing is life

Found this perfect little private beach for our tent during our roadtrip in Albania and we got to be there all by ourselves. Even though the beach looks super smooth, it’s made of small round rocks that don’t stick to your skin no matter how much you roll in it which is nice, but walking on it is a whole nother story

One of the freshest and clearest waters I’ve ever swam in. We encountered so many amazing locations in Albania, but it seems like we only just scratched the surface...

This might be one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken of Hildegunn and Benjamin. The photo takes me back in time, it’s like one of the old b/w photos that have been colored afterwards. Ending up in these old villages, like Theth, was amazing and really opened up our eyes for the beauty yet  to be explored.

We have had amazing and beautiful sunsets for two weeks now and it’s been hard to decide where we want to see them from. This view is from Church St. Sava looking down at the private island Sveti Stefan.

Fatherhood. As I’m looking back at the past 5 months, I’m beyond humbled for the opportunity I have had making an impact in this young boy’s life. I feel so blessed that I have been able to stay home during the beginning of his life and I understand I have been given an opportunity many don’t have. As fathers, we have been given a specific role to model the Heavenly Father to our sons. It’s a responsibility we shouldn’t take lightly and it isn’t easy, but the only way we are able to teach our sons well is to walk well.

There are many ways to wake up, but one of my favorites is to go out with the kayak at sunrise and just let the kayak glide on the water.
