A friend in my pocket

There is one thing in my life that I really apreciate, and that is the vast network of friends I have all over the world. After years of traveling, I find that wherever I go I have a friend or at least a friend of a friend. That means there is always a couch to sleep on, or somebody to take you sightseeing/give you advice on where to go. I love inviting friends to Norway too, and I have already had a few staying at my place this summer.

Here in Portugal it was Line, my old friend from school who played the role of the local connection. We have a weird tendency to hook up in strange countries or on trans atlantic flights. Living in Lisbon with her Portugees husband she knows places I as a tourist would never have found, and she took a day off to show my friend Charlotte and me around. A little time off from being a mom and hanging out with the girls was good for us all:-)
