It seems like I am coming down with the flu or a cold:

Greetings to all you amazing ladies and gentlemen here on the world wide web. Well guys, then its Monday again and in the very start of a brand new week, with all that comes with it off course. So tell me, how has your weekend been like? Did it live up to your expectations? I for sure hope so. When it comes to me, I have no real reason to complain or actually this time around I kinda do. The truth is that it feels like I am getting sick and kinda been feeling like this for the past week or so. The thing is that it doesn't seem like it wants to fully break out yet and that is frustrating to me. I want to get it over and done with, but it does feel like its the flue that is currently hunting me.
The “sad” part in all of this is that I had such big plans for today's post, I wanted to get ready one of my top 5 travel lists for you guys, but I am sorry to say that I haven't been feeling up to the challenge. So the end result in all of this is that I have put the top 5 posts on hold and instead work on something lighter. Because if there is one thing or one topic that has not gotten much space on my blog, it has to be my life prior to becoming an expat. Okay, I have on occasion posted a few photos, but never really focused on it the way it actually deserver. Not that I am going to go super deep into details and such, but share with you guys a series of photos and explain the story behind them.
Okay, as I have mentioned before I am not a very good photographer, but I do love taking photos and especially those who are focused on the small moments in life. You know, everyday memories and such. Anyway, in this post, I will take you guys on a walk through a very special part of my beloved Kristiansund (my Norwegian hometown). This is an area that is better know as Vågen and is so rich in history. Most of it is focused around ships and shipbuilding. From what I understand the oldest active shipyard in all of Norway is situated in this area. The name of this shipyard is Mellemværftet, yes its a Norwegian word. While I lived back home, I loved spending time in this part of town, no matter season.
I have always enjoyed spending time in this part of my hometown and especially during spring season when the locals are getting their boats ready for summer. This includes everything from the amazing smell of warm tar to the sound of people working on their wooden boats, things like this really changes the atmosphere. When spring comes around I do miss being able to do things like this. I could spend hours on hours just sitting on a bench with a cup of coffee and enjoy the activity going on around me. I think it's about time for me to start looking for something like this here in Huaral. Won't be an old shipyard, but I should be able to find something similar.
Anyway, my friends, I guess its time for me to get started on wrapping this post up and get it ready for my blog. I only hope that it didn't end up being too messy and confusing. If it did, at least I have excuses this time around. So if you enjoyed this post, why not check me out on social media? You can find me on Facebook (Beyond the Horizon), on Twitter (Beyond the Horizon), on Instagram (Beyond our Horizon) and on Youtube (Beyond the Horizon 2.0). When it comes to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram my goal is to be active every day and Youtube at least once a week. This is my goal on social media anyway.

P.s: If you enjoy my content and wants to support my me or the blog, you can do this through a site called Ko-fi (Jack Bowler Sr), it's a site where you can donate or buy me a cup of coffee. I am just mentioning this, so don't feel pressured to donate or anything. At the same time, any funds coming in through Ko-fi will go to improving the content on my blog. At least I hope you enjoyed today's photos.
