MY CRAZY TRIP TO BEIRUT, LEBANON

OUR TRIP TO BEIRUT WAS A LOT OF FUN AND COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY EXHAUSTING!! MOSTLY BECAUSE OF OUR FLIGHT-SCHEDULE ;) WE LEFT OSLO, GARDERMOEN AIRPORT AROUNF 4PM. AND ARRIVED AT OUR HOTEL AT 5 O´CLOCK IN THE MORNING.. (it was soo hard getting into the country.. and we had all our papers in order!!)

WE THEN SLEPT FOR ABOUT 5 HOURS BEFORE OUR WORK-DAY STARTED.. WE WORKED ALL DAY AND HAD TO LEAVE FOR THE AIRPORT AGAIN AT 3 AM IN THE MORNING... HAD A 4 HOUR WAIT IN ISTANBUL AND ARRIVED IN OSLO AGAIN AT 3 O´CLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON... NO SLEEP!!! I WAS SO EXHAUSTED I CRIED WHEN I GOT HOME.. FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN THE FACT THAT I WAS SOOOOOOO TIRED;)

BUT HEY, I´M HUUUUGE IN LEBANON AND IT WAS ALL WORTH IT!!! I´D DO IT AGAIN ;)

MY GUYS; ODD INGE, ELIAS AND MARTIN









OUR HOTEL WAS AMAZING ! DIDN´T GET TO STAY THERE LONG ENOUGH TO REALLY ENJOY IT THOUGH;(



-THIS IS THE EVENT I PLAYED AT.. THEY TOLD ME WHEN I ARRIVED THAT MY SONG WAS #1 ON RADIO IN LEBANON AND THAT I WAS THE BIGGEST "STAR".. I THOUGHT THEY WERE KIDDING BUT I QUICKLY REALIZED THEY WERE RIGHT.. DURING THE SHOW (there are no pictures of that simply because we have never been so stressed out before and during a show.. the way people deal with stress is differen´all around the world and to us mellow scandinavians it seemed like all the people working there were constantly freaking out, so we felt like we had to stay sharper than usual.. it all was fine in the end) THE CROWD KNEW ALL MY SONGS AND SANG THEM SO LOUDLY DURING MY PERFORMANCE THAT I COULDN´T HEAR MYSELF AT ALL!! WAS SO MUCH FUN!!!

 


did a live tv-interview..


(HUGE BILLBOARD ON THE FREEWAY WITH MY PICTURE ON IT= COOL!!)

MORE PICTURES COMING.. HAVING A HARD TIME UPLOADING.. M

sorry, but i have forgotten to tell this.

when i was a child, i listened to the news in the radio, and nearly every day there were reports about the civil war in beirut. and in germany we have a town called bayreuth, and in a child's ear it sounds similar to beirut...my parents wanted to spend our holidays in bayreuth and i was so anxiously about it...

peace and love to all people in beirut!

Plasserer du alltid crew/band-folkene dine etter skjegg-lengde?

Hi Maria,

great experience you had!

Thank you for the blog post ♥

@Annika: you´re so right!! These are very good news from the Libanon.

The people there have earned it!

åh. jeg var i beirut i påsken i år, og det var helt fantastisk.

er villig til å reise tilbake når som helst, bare på grunn av den helt magiske maten!

jeg har heldigvis oppdaget en libaneisisk dagligvarehandel i torggata, og kan hamstre alt jeg trenger for å få verdens beste mat igjen. :)

ferie i libanon anbefales på det sterkeste. menneskene, maten, naturen. njuuuudeligt!

og forresten: så himla søt du er! bildene på headeren fikk meg til å smile fra øre til øre.
