Project H- Our home in Norway

First of all I want to thank Jason for presenting my blog for his readers and I am thankful for this opportunity. 

My name is Roberta and I am 35 years old. I am a native born Brazilian and I grew up in Brazil. I moved to Norway in December 2004 and now it has been  almost 12 years since I moved here and I have obtained Norwegian citizenship. My whole family is living in Brazil but I have two beautiful daughters, Stephanie who is 18 years old and Gabrielle who is almost 9 years old, that also live in Norway. I have been living with my boyfriend Johan Larsen for 1,5 years but we have been in a relationship for 4 years now.

I have a personal blog where I share the things that I love to do. I am a social person and I love to connect with others. I love the things in this world that can inspire me and where I can share it in order to inspire others. I would be very glad if my blog could have the purpose of motivate others and I try to fill it with positivity. I began to blog on the WordPress platform May. 20 this year and I am loving it.

As you asked me to mention how many readers/views I do have off course I don’t mind to share it with you guys. I am pretty new here and started to blog on this platform May 20 2016 and I am really surprised how fast the views of my blog have increased. I really love the people on this platform and now I know that I have made the right choice by having my own domain. I chose to have my own domain since I want to choose myself which type of propaganda that should be on my page. This is of importance because I don’t want propaganda for products that I cannot recommend to others. Today I have reached approximately 17 000 views on my blog since I started.

Stavanger has some beautiful timber houses which is preserved from the 18th and 19th century and is known as Old Stavanger (Gamle Stavanger). In the area you can find restaurants and small fishing boats and if you are in my city on holiday I would recommend you to have a look there. I would love to show you a picture of this area but I don’t have it now. However, you can find it on google very easily. 

Ullandhaug Tower (210 foot high) were built in 1964 and sits atop a hill dotted the Viking stone relics that is used for telecommunication. It is not accessible for people all the way to the top but you can take the elevator to the café level and enjoy the beautiful view of Stavanger and the fjords.

Norway’s biggest bank robbery happened here back in 2004. The thieves escaped with $10 million. 

Stavanger has not been my home for the whole life. I moved here in 2013 from Ålesund which is further north in the country. At first I felt that Stavanger was a little bit scary despite being born in Rio. I was used to live in Ålesund which is a small place and was scared of the crime in Stavanger due to the bank robbery back in 2004. Imagine, a girl from Rio was afraid of the small and cozy Stavanger. I really like to live here now and I feel that it has become my home. Stavanger for me is enjoying the harbour, walking around in Old Stavanger, meet friends, watch the yearly world tournament in Volleyball, participate in the Glad Mat festival which is a food festival which is held yearly with food from all around Norway and some international food as well.


(The view from my window)

I have a place that I dream about calling home one day and that is Miami due to its lovely climate and beaches. I have some friends who live there and they have told me about how amazing it is to live there.  

A picture say more than thousand words. Here are some photos of my home town from the air. 

Freedom of opinion for me is to be able to opine, demonstrate and share thoughts and opinions that might go against the overall view of things as long as you don’t harm others. In Norway we are blessed with freedom of opinion and we can freely share our opinions in the public. I believe that most of my opinions corresponds with the Norwegians but I have some own opinions that maybe not everyone agrees with. I don’t want this post to be political and that is why I chose to keep my opinions for myself.

I would appreciate if people would give me feedbacks. All kinds of feedbacks are welcome even the critical ones. Now you have had the chance to get to know me a little bit better and my home. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
