About me – Cecilie Moestue

Mail: cecilie@solstue.com

Thanks for visiting my blog! This is a site where I write mostly about hotels and travel tips – both in Norway and abroad.

Here I collect and save good addresses – about where to shop, eat and stay.

I started blogging in 2008, because I am a fan of hotels. Especially hotels with a unique story or special features. You won´t find many chain hotels here, unless they have something interesting to show us.

I work as a freelance web journalist, writing for Redink.no, SOL.no and Historic hotels and restaurants in Norway (De Historiske hotell og spisesteder). You can read some of the articles below.

I also write a column “Digital media” for the Norwegian magazine “NITO Refleks“.

In 2013 I worked as a web journalist for the weekly magazine, Allers.no, at Aller Media Norge. I was responsible for the digital communication of the magazine – and started blog and Instagram profile. I was also responsible for the communication via the Facebook profile.

Before working at Allers – I worked 7 years as a web journalist at the Norwegian web portal SOL.no, writing food articles and researching and collecting the best web addresses on the net.

I am a researcher at heart – and I am always hunting for new links on the internet. Drop me a line if you have some hotels to recommend or other comments.
