Perfect place for a slow Sunday morning, good food and nice atmosphere. It´s sometimes full, but you can hang in the little store until a table is available.

Strangest second hand store in Oslo, run by two blind elderly ladies, and only open on Mondays and Thursdays. The store is tiny and crammed, you can do a scoop, but the prices are fairy unpredictable, the ladies have a very independent pricing-system.

One of the nicest places to have an outside beer in the summer. Sits right along Akerselva (river that goes through parts of Oslo east, nice for walks).

Oslo / Bar
Excellent bar, nice music in warm red interior (with original Pushwagner on the wall). It´s small and usually full, but somehow I always get a table quickly.

Very nice record shop, with a good selection of records, and some books and merch. Very friendly staff who likes helping visitors find music they might like.

I love how this Vietnamese restaurant has decided to keep the interior and exterior of the Greek restaurant that was there before it. Also: good food for a reasonable price.

Maybe my favourite Oslo-street. Lots of nice vegetable stores, and if you start from Grønland and walk up the street, you end up at the botanical garden, which is lovely, and houses the Zoological museum.

I’m a British citizen currently studying product design at the Akershus Oslo University College. At the age of 4 my parents took me to Lanzarote, which was a pretty funky place to grow up! I moved to Oslo 11 years ago, where I worked as Harbourmaster at the Royal Norwegian Yachtclub until starting studying. I haven’t really found any nieche yet, but I enjoy trying to incorporate feelings into my work and trying to design an experience instead of just a product. I’m very inspired by my surroundings. I suppose I’m on some kind of creative journey at the moment, but I don’t really have a clue what I’m doing or where I’m going to end up. I use humour as a defense mechanism, worry too much and cry when I watch soppy movies.
