Sandnes Stadium

Henrik, Filip and I go there for most of our indoor training ses- sions. I can also remember competing at the stadium in regional and national events when I was a kid.

Sandved Park

We often train in Sandved Park and I have lots of memories of tough sessions there with Henrik and Filip over the years. It’s a nice place to visit witha lake (Stokkalandsvat) and woodlands, too.

Kvadrat Shopping Mall

There are a lot of new stores and restaurants there and it’s a good place to hang out. There’s no messing around when I go shopping, I’m in and out in five minutes. If I see something I like, I buy it, but my girlfriend likes to walk, take her time and look around.

NOI

This is a casual Italian restaurant in downtown that I like to go to – they do lots of great pizzas. My diet isn’t that strict, because we train so much that our bodies just need food, we need to refuel.

Pulpitrock

This is one of the places you have to visit if you’re in Sandnes. It’s the most famous tourist attraction in the area and the views are amazing. You may recognize it from Mission Impossible: Fallout. They held a screen- ing for the movie up there when it was released last summer.

Hekkan Burger

This place is relatively new but they’ve received national atten- tion in the last few months. They serve really good burgers. My girlfriend actually started work- ing there when they first opened.
