You know what they say about how love can move mountains? Well, I guess its more than just mountains, as I found myself sitting in an almost 30 hour plane ride heading north.
A few months back, I finally moved to Tromsø, to be physically connected with my then fiance, now called husband. It was a long journey finding home and I’m just glad I made it.
Tromsø is a city located in the northernmost part of Norway. It is considered to be the Paris of the North because of how people are surprisingly fashionably conscious here, as per told by the southerners visiting back in the days.
Tromsø houses the northernmost university of Scandinavia which constitutes greatly to the city’s growing population. It’s not only the population that is growing here though, as landscapes and natural attractions are huge here too. Talk about lakes, forests, mountains and fjords; name it, Tromsø has it. It is certainly a haven for nature lovers and adventure seekers. It is as well; not to mention, one of the perfect places to see the amazing Northern Lights. It is by far the most beautiful phenomenon I have ever encountered and I graciously thank God for it.
Tromsø is geographically located in the Arctic Circle which only means that the weather condition here is extreme. We have the round the clock sun in the summer to which we call the midnight sun and there is this thing called the polar nights, wherein we only get to see a glimpse of light a few hours a day.
So, Yes!! This is where I found my new home. Well, home is basically where the heart is, of which I have a number of places to call home BUT, this here is my new physical home.
Once, there was a girl I used to play with for hours. I’d even skip my afternoon nap to rush in their house and play. We were good playmates and became awesome classmates as we went to the same school together from Kindergarden to High School. When College came, we shared a room too.
She’s one of the few others who first knew I was crazy and that my thoughts aren’t (sometimes) normal, and that my habits are insane. She was there when I shared my stories about my childhood crushes and even shared the same one, once!haha She was there when I started making dreams out of the stories I’ve read from my books. She was there when I started putting make ups and nail polish. She was there when I started going out and even shared our first bottle of beer, ever drunk. She was there when I first realized what love is, and of course, she was there when I had my heartbroken too. She was there when I made fights with the world and she helped me overcome it. She has always been there for the most parts of my life.
…and then, Life separated us by distance and time. Our lives became busyier than usual. We were led to different paths in life. But she never stopped being there, giving me advicies about love and life even when I was thousands of miles away.
She was my childhood bestfriend and forever confidante.
SOON enough, she will be married to the man of her dreams and the pornstar to her fantasies. She will soon have kids and start building family life. She will be a step closer to realising her life goals.
AND no matter where roads will lead us, She will always be my friend and I will always be to her, too!
As you’ve known and as you’ve said, Im not good at voicing out my thoughts and would rather have it written in words.
So, this is me saying THANK YOU for the wonderful amazing years of friendship, for always being there for me and for always slapping truths in my face. I cant be any happier for the new life ahead of yours! Best of Luck and God Bless your new family life!❤️
