I just came back from a whirlwind tour of Norway from Bergen to places I can’t pronounce, to more places I can’t pronounce, then Oslo and over to Tau near Stavanger.
Now, anyone can take you on a normal tour of that beautiful country. I thought I’d offer up some of the more unusual sights I enjoyed during our trip.
One the places we passed on our walk through Bergen.
What I say, but I took along my 12th Man flag. Go Hawks!
I thought about stopping by and saying hi for a spell, but we kept moving.
Actually, a mom and her son.
Some Norwegian forest wisdom.
I got your fruit display right here.
No matter how hard you try, you can’t make dried cod eye-appealing.
I believe this was an ad for a Norwegian rapper, Snoop Lass.
If you want to know how to pronounce it correctly, consider it a question: Who’s Fleeden?
I don’t know how you can get more Norwegian than Omar’s Pizza.
Yes, there’s a ski jumper there. They were landing on soaked-down grass.
If you go with color codes, you can ignore the labels.
Yes, they have their own version of “Idol.”
This is to warn drivers to be careful because some Norwegian kid could be walking their toy slug and not notice you.
Nothing says freshness like a duck.
Get out of the city and you’ll see that Norwegians are seriously into rock stacking.
I was asked to sit down here so both ends of the horse could be represented. Uh, wait….
By the way, for those of you wondering, this trip paled in comparison when it came to taking photos. My first visit to Norway, I took over 4800 pictures using three different cameras. This time, using my main camera and my phone, I only snapped 2,341 pictures. I’m making progress.
