New Apartment

Some good news – I’ve gone to the very mature (for me) step to buy an apartment here in Oslo! The place is in Vøyensvingen at Ila, and it’s a small 1-room apartment with kitchen.

Not very big but just perfect for my modest needs, and it’s conveniently located – just 10 minutes on bike to the center of town and the area is very nice, quiet and close to the river. It was not all that expensive either so I didn’t need to take up a large loan, which helps a lot.

The apartment is quite old so it needs a bit of work, for instance there is just a shared shower in the hall at the moment, but there will be work to fix all the apartments here during the coming winter. Other than that I’m really satisfied with it and it’s nice to finally have a place I can call my very own. More info later as I get more settled in…
