CSA-farming, or "andelslandbruk" as we call it, is a fast growing movement. And a great one. Read my long-form article about it for the fantastic and well-reputed DN Magasinet. It was pure joy making this piece, as I've visited farmers across the country who all contribute to making our soil better for future generations.

I was so lucky to spend a day at this deserted island, with only two inhabitants. The result - both text and pictures - is in the winter issue of the fantastic food&lifestyle magazine NORD.

I've picked my needles up again, and have started knitting these colourful mohair scarves again. I knitted a couple of hundred of them a few years ago, and now I'm getting into the jive again. Can absolutely recommend one. Have a look at my online store: www.the-christinaskreiberg-shop.com!

In february and march this year, Espen, Ada and I went off to Buenos Aires and stayed there for almost two months. It's a kind of city you never want to leave. We loved it. One of the places in our local area was the Scandinavian inspired restaurant Ølsen. I did a story on it for NORD when I got back - both pictures and text. This is from the summer issue.

Breastfeeding is amazing! if you can do it, that is. And I have been fortunate to be able to feed Ada for the past 15 months. Until she one day didn't feel like having anymore. She self-weaned which was great.
Here in Norway you can do it anywhere. We have travelled a lot during her first year, so I've tested the attitudes towards breastfeeding "worldwide" :)
In California, no problem. In New York, well, I got some looks, but tried to be desecrete.
In Argentina, where we stayed for 2 months, it is very normal as well. Most women there keep on breastfeeding until the child is 2 years.
Then we travelled on to Istanbul, where it was definitely a challenge. My solution was to carry her in our Ergobaby (on my stomach), and fed her from there, with a shawls over us. That worked and no one noticed :)
Here we are at the airport in Buenos Aires, Ada is 8 months.

Ole Martin Hansen runs Hansen & Lydersen, which might be the best salmon smokery in London. From this little shed in East-London he delivers to the finest restaurants and hotels, and sheiks come flying in to have a taste. I had a really inspirational meeting with him, where we talked about life and love in addition to the art of smoking salmon.
This was published in the autumn issue of NORD magazine.

This summer I've seen more and more electrical bikes on the streets of Oslo. They are becoming increasingly popular. But all of those who ride them, get told that they're cheating. I wondered; who do us norwegians have this attitude? That you have to put in the work, sweat and struggle. If not, you're cheating.

In october I spent a week in Marrakech, attending a writing course, held by norwegian journalist and author Niels Christian Geelmuyden. The course was held in Morocco-resident Thor Arne Hauers beautiful riad.
In this photo we're listening to Niels Christian sharing some of his writings.
And below are some other snaps from my eventful week in Marrakech.
Night time, and we're heading out.
