Norway Update

Finally got back from Norway yesterday. It was a very long trip, but worth it. Had a fantastic time. 

Apologies for the lack of updates on the road, but internet access wasn't as readily available as I thought that it would be, and using my iphone for the updates would have been prohibitively expensive. So, you'll have to wait until I finish writing up my notes for more details.

Quite surreal to land in Copenhagen on Friday and have people going on about how terrible everything is in Norway. 
Been on the boat for 16 hours and can’t quite understand what they’re going on about.
Norway was way cool. It was wonderfully sunny and laid back and we had a great time. What the hell are you talking about?
But what about all the bombs and killing and such? 
Huh? What the hell are you talking about?
I saw the front covers of the newspapers in petrol stations all across Denmark, Germany and Holland showing carnage, somewhere. However, as I don’t speak any of these languages it all passed me by. 
Bit of a shock to get home and see the news and finally work out what everyone was going on about.

Anyway, I’ll post some stuff during the upcoming week. I took over 200 photos, so there’s bound to be some worth sharing.


  1. Welcome back.

    That news must have been disconcerting.

    Breath still baited.


  2. Must have been some trip, and the news at the end must have seemed surreal. Looking forward to the report, and of course, all those pictures!
