Here's where our house is in relation to our work/school. It's a fairly level shot to the ThIS, so Pam and the kids will have probably a 15-20 minute walk to school. My walk will be about 10 minutes. It's a little further to downtown, but not much. I imagine we won't be driving very much this next year, unless it's out to our hytte! (No, we don't have a hytte yet, but we want one...)
We were most interested in Rosenborg or Møllenberg or Bakklandet (between the International school and the river), but these are mostly apartments and a nice big house is a very good choice for us.
