Back to the original spirit of my blog…
Once upon a time I used to share pictures from my walks in the beautiful English countryside… now I’m back to doing the same only in Norway! 🇳🇴
With fresh air, clean water, and remarkably low population density you definitely get a great sense of freedom as you move around!
My last address before I moved here was a townhouse in Italy surrounded by neighbours, in a densely populated area, with noise pollution lurking around every corner… I literally lived right next door to a construction site. And yes… I thought I was gonna lose my mind.
Another stress factor when it comes to city living is the constant fear of violent crime, robbery, and terrorist attacks, among a myriad of other things… Even if you don’t think about it, it will still be embedded in the back of your mind. It’s like underlying stress that is constant.
I think the ideal location for any musician such as myself is somewhere quiet. You become increasingly sensitive as your relationship with “sound” deepens. You either have to run away into the countryside or build yourself a sound-proof grotto.
Other people who are looking to escape are in luck, as we are opening up our country home this summer. We are both hosting a Guitar Retreat, and a Bel Canto Retreat. So if you want to escape the stress of the city life, and enjoy the countryside while learning new skills; then feel free to join us!
Only a limited number of spaces are available! 😘
