A new start

July 20, 2017

When we moved to Trondheim we were not able to see the apartment since we lived in Stavanger which is far away from Trondheim. Actually, we act in a hurry and we could have searched better, but we were so eager to move and finally start working. We liked the area but after a few months living in the apartment we felt a bit uncomfortable here. The thing we missed the most was a bedroom since the apartment only contains a bed with a door where you can enter the bed. Not being able to have a bedroom is quite frustrating since I like to have space there and even changing the sheets on our bed challenging due to lack of space.

When we rented the apartment we made an agreement to stay here for at least one year. Many things happened during our stay here and we were really unhappy. Our landlord did not accomplish what they had promised us and finally we came to an agreement that we could move out sooner than what was written in the contract. However, this made us really glad and we could finally go on the market and find an apartment where we could be satisfied.


Last weekend we went for some house viewings but we did not find the apartment we were looking for. We did not feel at home when we first entered them. The first impressions are really important and I believe that you can feel it right away if the apartment is ment for you. Yesterday, we went for a new house viewing and when we came in we felt peace right away and it had a really good atmosphere. They had recently renovated the apartment and the best of everything is that we get our own laundry area. This is perfect since we can hide our dirty clothes and we can the cleaned clothes in a place that no one sees. The only disadvantage is that the apartment does not come with all the furnitures we need so we have to invest in our own things, but I guess it will be good to have our own things as well.

We look forward to a new fresh start in a new apartment where we can design it the way we want. I love to decorate and I cannot wait to make the apartment our home. We will go on IKEA to buy some nice things which I look forward to. A fresh start is always good and brings a lot of energy into our lives.

Some hard work lies in front of us since moving contains much work, but we can’t wait to start the process and move into the new apartment. On the pictures you can see how the new apartment looks like before moving in and I will off course share with you how it will be once it is decorated. This will be perfect for us also because it lies in an area of Trondheim that we love and it is also close to where Johan works. It is a very popular area and since I moved to Trondheim I have always said that I wanted to live there one day, and now it is finally happening. 😀
