We’re moving to..


Scotland!!! Well done to Deborah for finding the little clue. The Rennie Mackintosh detailed windows. Well done to Nicki too for guessing Scotland. I’ll be able to show you lots of cool places to visit, stay, eat, drink, shop you name it..! I studied in Glasgow and worked in Edinburgh before we came to France, so I know Scotland quite well. I’m sure lots have changed though. Were we had our first date there’s no longer a pub, but a fab Italian. 🙂

As I mentioned, we’ll be renting a flat first to find where we’d like to settle. It’s all very exciting and quite strange leaving France, but we miss family and friends. It’ll even be much easier for us to see my family in Norway as they’ll only be a short flight away. So time has come to say bye to France after 9 years.. I’m sure we’ll be back for holidays though. 

So, in a few months I’ll be blogging from trendy coffee shops, sipping macchiatos and taking you round the country. Until then, I shall enjoy the French weather as the Scottish weather won’t be quite as good..  

Have a brilliant weekend!!

    Så spennende å flytte til Skottland, nydelig land. Har selv vært både i Glasgow og Edinburgh, flotte plasser. Men må jo si at Edinburgh var i en klasse for seg:))
    Masse lykke til med pakking og planlegging, det er et styr å flytte men godt når det er gjort:))

    Klem Veronica

  14. Said to see you leave La Douce France, but it will be for all the right reasons.
    And we'll be following your moving adventures on your blog, right? Good luck with all the preparations!
    Bye, xx

On my side I will try to do the same with Southern France xxx

  16. Hi Hege,

    I just read your big news, what a change. But I'm sure you will find a lovely home and make it yours.
    Good luck with all the things to arrange!

    Oh Hege this is HUGE and I would never have guessed. I completely understand the need for you to be around family, especially with kids. Well, I'm a little sad that we won't get to meet in France but I'm sure we will at some point. Good luck with the new medicine Hege. So will you change the name to Hege in Scotland? M x

  18. Bonjour! Så dere flytter tilbake, så spennende. Skjønner godt at dere lengter tilbake til familie og venner igjen. Etter 9 år som utlendinger i Frankrike….hadde det vært gøy å høre om deres erfaringer både positivt og negativt. Nyt de siste månedene, dere også har vel fantastisk herlig vær nå tenker jeg…og masse lykke til med både flytteplanene og et sted å bo. Ps! Vi har også våre planer men de deler jeg nok ikke før du bor i Scotland tenker jeg…hihi. Bises

    I'm a big fan of your blog and I cannot wait to see what will happen after your moving to Bonnie Scotland! I'm very fond of this country as I spent some years living in Edinburgh: it has a very special pace in my heart.
    I wish well and good luck for everything!
