Chapel of Light at Beitostolen Bathed in Sun

Chapel of Light Beitostolen

After a busy fall in my little architectural practice it was nice to relax and take a break from it all at Beitostolen with good friends, family, and plenty of fresh air.

One of the highlights of our trip was the visit to the beautiful Chapel of Light … Continue reading

Recently I’ve met a lot of interesting people. Just last week I was inspired by Lucky Linda who lectured on finding your life purpose.
