Walkman vs iPod

This is a great read: "Giving up my iPod for a Walkman" (BBC Magazine)

When the Sony Walkman was launched, 30 years ago this week, it started a revolution in portable music. But how does it compare with its digital successors? The Magazine invited 13-year-old Scott Campbell to swap his iPod for a Walkman for a week.

My dad had told me it was the iPod of its day.

He had told me it was big, but I hadn't realised he meant THAT big. It was the size of a small book. Read the rest here!

June 2008: bird watching and crab fishing

In June last year we went bird watching and crab fishing in Syltefjord! Here we are getting ready:

Unfortunately my compact camera didn't do the landscape justice at all, and the birds ended up being tiny dots... But we (me and the wife) tried! Next time we'll bring the big camera.

This cliff is packed with nests:

Some birds - don't remember the name:

Then we went hunting for crabs! We caught some big ones:

Most of them ended up on the table:

They were delicious!

It's strange to think that our two years in Båtsfjord are almost over. We've had a wonderful time here, and met some really lovely people. As you probably can tell by looking at all these photos! I had hoped to blog a bit more often, but being a headmaster is busy. Busy, but interesting! I've really learned a lot, both about myself and school life.

Before we moved north we planned to stay 1 - 2 years, and then move back to Trondheim. That's not going to happen, though.
