Re: Norway, Oct 2011

Oct 13 - Part 1 Cold morning in downtown Oslo, and we are set for an adventure today -- a day-long 550km journey by train, boat and bus to Bergen, obviously not the quickest way. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-fhbrX5I-wFU/TpdKIquwEdI/AAAAAAAALsY/TeNJ7c2ioDg/DSC07680.JPG We stay in a budget hote...

Re: Norway, Oct 2011

We had to catch an early evening flight to Oslo (more than 30 flights/day), en route to Tromsø, on a Friday when the airport was at full capacity. The departure c...

Re: Norway, Oct 2011

Thanks, stkong. --- OSLO GARDERMOEN (OSL) Being an avid traveler (not a tourist), I know right away if I like a new airport that I arrive at. It's like a sixth sense, I can feel the place uplifting my spirit, giving me good vibes, as soon as I sight it from inside the landing plane. And Oslo Garderm...

Re: Norway, Oct 2011

Oct 12 - Part 2 At the airport train station, 'needles' are attached atop structures -- not elegant but an effective way to deter birds from loitering and making a mess. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-4IuP75JpSnA/TpscA1FrR-I/AAAAAAAAMLk/H8KCZdFROHA/DSC07640.JPG Soon on our way to downtown Oslo,...

very nice!! heh I was in Niagara about a month ago ... the water spray is really heavy (I got very wet just standing by the railing) and looking at the speed of the water and the height, I cannot understand the people who went over the falls in barrels as publicity stunts! a 7-yr-old survived the f...
