A great day in the mountains

It is beautiful in the Norwegian mountains at this time of the year. The air is fresh and the tempetatures are mostly comfortable.

These pictures are from the mountains of Nord Gudbrandsdal in Sel municipality, and some of them show the views of the magnificent mountain areas Rondane and Dovrefjell.

It was a great day in the mountains yesterday. A little alternating weather, but nice conditions for hiking.

Visiting Maihaugen – open-air museum in Lillehammer, Norway

I have been out and photographed with my cell phone again.  Today I visited Maihaugen Open Air Museum in my old hometown, Lillehammer, Norway.

Maihaugen at Lillehammer is one of the largest and oldest open-air museums in Europe. Maihaugen is a living museum offering cultural experiences and family activities. The Museum at Lillehammer is probably best known for the houses in the Rural section. The many sunburned buildings were the homes of farmers, craftsmen and local officials. Here you meet the culture and the way of life of the old farming community. Read more: Maihaugen

Fishing boat and church, Arendal Norway

In many places in Norway you can buy fresh fish and shellfish directly from boats coming to pier. The boats arrive early in the morning and stay until the catch is sold. Bestseller at the southern coast of Norway is fresh shrimp.

These pictures are from Arendal, Norway, today.

Füssen, Germany #2

Amazing view

On our visit to Füssen we also went to Schwangau nearby, to go for a walk up to the castle Neuschwanstein

Neuschwanstein was built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, in the period 1869 – 1884. Neuschwanstein is the most famous of the castles Ludwig II built and is an important tourist attraction.

Füssen, Germany #1

These pictures are from the city of Füssen in Germany, where I have been visiting for a few days. Füssen is a city located southeast of Bavaria, on the romantic road, which is one of Germany’s most famous travel routes.

And it was really romantic in Füssen! The town lies between tall alpine peaks and green lakes. It was a classic alpen environment there, with fresh mountain air, Tyrolean houses, Beerstuber and locally produced food.
There was also very much to experience in Füssen. There were art, museums, good restaurants, and the two world-famous castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau.

It was also nice to go shopping in the old town where these pictures are from.

More pictures from the city on the blog tomorrow.

Can you hear me Can you hear me
Through the dark night far away
I am dying, forever crying
To be with you, who can say
Can you hear me, can you hear me
Through the dark night far away
I am dying, forever crying
To be with you, who can say
We are sailing,
we are sailing
Home again ‘Cross the sea
We are sailing Stormy waters
To be near you, To be free
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh Lord
