13.-15.7.2018 – Trondheim and Östersund

Some coming up trips this summer

Summer is here in Norway. Everybody is going on holiday, but I am sitting at work. That is what happens when you use most of your days off early in the year. No regrets there. But I cannot just sit at home and wait for everybody to come back. I want to have a little…

A weekend in Sørlandet

This weekend I have been visiting friends close to Arendal in the southern part of Norway. I have been to this region once before, but then I spend a rainy weekend in Kristiansand (not to mix up with Kristiansund – that is some 500 km north – so don’t program your GPS the wrong way!)….

Kiev – Day 4 – Kiev

Monday, Mai 21 2018 One man down again. The last evening was too long for Magnus. But the rest of us manage to get to breakfast at 10:30. A good breakfast is always a good start of the day. And what is the easiest way to get to a place in Kiev and the Metro is to…

A weekend in Bergen – Day 2

Saturday, April 21 2018 After a bad night we take a late start and go down to breakfast at 10:00. The hotel has a great breakfast buffet in my opinion. Liked it very much and had a good start in the day. Our plan for the morning is a tour up to Fløyen with the…

A weekend in Bergen – Day 1

Friday, April 20 2018 Only at home for 1 1/2 days and off I go again. But this time it is only partly my fault. Let’s summon up how this happened and rewind to December 2017 (shortened version): Simon: Wanna see Jimmy Carr live in Ålesund on Saturday, 21st April? Me: Sure! Simon: It is…
