Innsbruck Kicked Us Out … Where To Next?

After spending 1 month in Innsbruck we realized the city didn’t want us hanging around anymore - it was kicking us out!

Having to take care of thousands of new students desperate for a place to stay, Innsbruck simply didn’t have time to deal with us as well.

So after two full weeks of apartment searching, we decided that while we really liked the city, it just wasn’t meant to be.

  1. Apartments were taken within hours of being put online.
  2. The students were desperate for ANYTHING!
  3. We were not …

We didn’t want to share a room in someone’s home, or pay €1500 extra just to get hold of an apartment – so we have decided to move on, or more precisely, we’re moving north into the wild..!

Ok, perhaps that was a “little” exaggerated, but the place we’ve decided to move to is one of those places you would like to find yourself in when the rest of the world falls apart – so what better place to spend the end of 2012 than in Norway? ;P

Norway is a country we both have been longing to see more of, and we’re looking forward to see if it really is what everyone always claims; the most beautiful country in the world…

Having found a great 2 room apartment in Trysil (Norway’s biggest ski resort) located only 3 mins from the slopes, we decided to just go for it and spend the next 6 months in Norway.

That’s the blessing and the curse with being able to be wherever you want - a blessing because you can do whatever the hell you want, but a curse for the very same reason.

The students in Innsbruck HAD to make it work, we didn’t – so we moved on …

Sometimes, having too many options makes it more difficult than if there was only one way to go …

    You guys will love it!!! Norway is seriously awesome (although pretty expensive), and living next to the slopes is such a luck!
    You guys should get kuddos for being able to pack up and leave and still see the positive side of situations that are disappointing like seeing your plans of Innsbruck go out the window.
    CHeers guys, have a great time in Norway, but I’m sure you will!! :)

    Norway is beautiful and as you go further into nature it just gets better. Expensive but I’m sure once you get into the swing of things it will get easier. Enjoy yourselves

      Yeah the country is so beautiful and we haven’t had the opportunity to explore the nature much, but we’ll definitely make sure we do this time.

    Innsbruck is a lovely place, so it is sad to see that you haven’t been able to make it work out. But as you have stated why should you have to scrabble to find a place AND pay a premium for it.

    Best of luck with your Norway adventure!
