Photos from the places we stayed

One of the places we stayed. They had kids, six and two years old, and we played with them while the parents made dinner for us. I was painfully reminded of how much energy kids have.

This is where I had collapsed in heap after jumping around on this thing, while the six-year-old is still going strong.

I promised you



I? :-)

And sunsets:

Next up: photos from the north of Norway.

Home again

So holidays are over for now. After we went to Oslo/Tønsberg we were home just a couple of days, and then we took a plane to Tromsø, the north of Norway. So I have LOADS of photos from both the south of Norway and the North. Or the places we went to anyway, there's quite a bit more to see:-)

Starting with the drive from Trondheim down to Oslo/Tønsberg. I have to say, this part of Norway is a little more boring than I remembered before the drive. Or MAYBE the landscape got boring because I was bored, sitting for 8 hours in a hot car without air condition:-) Anyway, along the route that we chose (the shortest one), there's lots of forest, and lots of farm land. Like this:

Sorry about the Monet-like quality of this photo. I learned that it's hard taking photos from a car driving 90 km/h. Though I suspected that already before this trip.

Still a bit of snow here and there, as you can see.

And more farmland...

The next post will feature photos that are NOT taken from a passenger seat. Stay tuned! There will be sunsets. And kittens!

Some advice to all of us

Off on holiday again. This time just a short stop in Oslo, before we spend the weekend in Tønsberg, visiting friends and girlfriend's relatives. We're driving this time, since we're visiting so many people. It takes about 7-8 hours to drive from Trondheim to Oslo. I'm bringing my digital camera, so hopefully you'll get to see some photos from our road trip soon! Norway this time of year can be very beautiful. Not that I am biased... ;-)

Some Advice from a Mother to Her Married Son
(Judith Viorst)

The answer to do you love me isn't, I married you, didn't I?
Or, Can't we discuss this after the ballgame is through?
It isn't, Well that all depends on what you mean by 'love'.
Or even, Come to bed and I'll prove that I do.
The answer isn't, How can I talk about love when
the bacon is burned and the house is an absolute mess and
the children are screaming their heads off and
I'm going to miss my bus?
The answer is yes.
The answer is yes.
The answer is yes.

Hvar, Croatia

We're back from our week in Hvar, a small island not that far from Split. My holiday journal is half-filled with my daily blabberings of the week's events, and now I'm going to share EVERYTHING that happened with you. Only kidding! :-) Instead I'm going to quote Maureen Lipman: "if a holiday isn't disastrous then there's nothing to write about." It wasn't disastrous, it was wonderful! We had sun and warm weather the whole week, we went swimming every day and we drank great local beer. Here are some photos.
