It’s been a month since I moved to Stavanger in Norway. Life has been great so far, I feel home since day one and I’m not even surprised. First couple weeks were kinda busy with so much stuffs to do: report to police office, got bus ticket and mobile number, got my residence permit, attended the orientation days at university, went back and forth to Ikea and bunch of supermarkets, and blah blah blah. After I settled enough I finally got a chance to pick up my camera and being tourist for a moment.
If you don’t know already, Stavanger is a coastal city in southwest of Norway, so it’s near the sea (I sometimes find sailor men and sailor women roaming the city with their blue and white stripy T-Shirt and their cute captain hat). First area I explored was the downtown Stavanger or the “sentrum” which located in the port area and is the busiest part of the city. Usually flooded with tourist from the cruise trip, this is also the colorful and vibrant part of Stavanger with bunch of cute bars and shops.
I woke up early that morning, pack my camera, and took the bus off to the city center. It was just around seven when I got there. It’s so quiet, shops were still closed, barely anyone in the street. Everybody’s still in their bed perhaps. I walked on cobblestone street and wandered around the labyrinth of cute little shops. Just me, my camera, and the summer breeze. Complete serenity.
To celebrate my first month living in this amazing city, here’s some pictures of this part of Stavanger. If you’re wondering about the lack of human object on this particular photo diary, please excuse me. I didn’t bring my sister, that’s why! LOL
So what do you think? Isn’t this city lovely? I’ve already have a plan to explore the other neighborhood very soon and will definitely share it with you!
