Traveling the world on long weekends
We are a Norwegian couple with two teenagers and we absolutely love to travel – near and far. We work 9-5, teens go to school and we travel only during our vacation time and other days off. And we love our long weekend breaks from everyday’ hassle. We are not digital nomads and nor have we desire to become such. You can read my and other like-minded bloggers’ in-depth interview on this subject HERE.
You can read about our lifestyle and why we are satisfied with the way we travel here.
You might consider us lucky living in one of the worlds best countries when it comes to social welfare. In Norway, we have 5 weeks vacation by law, 10 public holidays and weekends. If we add that up we get 35 days off excluding the weekends.
But no matter the country you live and work in there is always a way to get you on the road.

Lena (me) – born in Ukraine and moved to Norway after I met Steinar (my better half). I have just finished my three-year-long study for a Master degree while working full-time. I have always loved to travel and have always been curious about other cultures, history, and languages. I love to write and take pictures and always bring my camera with me – to sometimes huge annoyance to my family.
Steinar – loves his drone and brings it with him where ever and whenever he can. He loves to travel and he also loves to drive, which is perfect because road tripping is my favorite type of travel.
Despite the final year of study, full-time work and two teenagers at school we managed to travel to 13 new and “old” places. We will do our absolute best to inspire you to travel and show you that it is possible to see a lot in just one weekend.
The 25 countries and three continents we have visited so far will show you that you can see a lot during your vacation.
