          I thought I wrote someplace about Tall Ships Race calling Ålesund in 2015, but I can't find my post.
          Anyway, I just discovered Bergen will be a port of call in 2914, and take a look at the following link:

          http://www.tsrkristiansand.no/

          What happened to Ålesund...?? Something I missed....???

          EDIT:
          I read someplace that they (TSR) are still talking about Ålesund 2015, so this city might be a second port of call for that race then, or...?

            Ålesund is one of the harbours in 2015, together with Kristiansand, Belfast (Gb), og Ålborg (Dk).

            "Bergen will be a port of call in 2914" you wrote. That is about 900 years into the future. Long time planing??

                  My honest thoughts... ? hmmm.... old concrete balconies are out, and new glossy reflective glass-panes are in.

                  In architectural terms, there is nothing "waow" about the building - neither before or after, but it does look a lot fresher after the new glass have been added. I can imagine the reflections in the glass would be good as photographic objects. In the fly-over of the video, I'd probably like to see a green mini-forest, or green grassy lawn on top of the roof instead of that simple grey sand/stone.

                    Heu...From 1977 to 2012 I guess Aalesund's taxpayers had a lot of fun...if they have a good sense of humour!!

                        Aalesund Airport, Vigra has been selected as the most beautiful (or impressive?) approach in Norway.
                        Found on smp.no, but the selection was done by readers all over Norway on "Kortreiser.no":

                          More bragging rights for Aalesund found on smp.no today: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/alesundogo...cle6940331.ece

                          Aalesund has been selected as among the 10 best small ports in Europe by none other than National Geographic Travel: http://travel.nationalgeographic.com...otos-traveler/

                          Worth millions in advertising dollars and all for free. But the article above sounds like it was written by the local tourist promotion board.
                          Looking forward to receive the NG Traveller Magazine for Febr./March soon.

                          I also saw a cut from the big Techno Show in Las Vegas the other day, where they showed off the newest in hightech displays.
                          On one of the screen was pictures from Geiranger and Aalesund. (We are becoming world famous!!!)

                              From smp.no today.
                              An article about a night in Molja Lighthouse, which is now a hotel room:
                              http://kortreist.smp.no/turer/nordve...ticle17324.ece

                              There have been reports about this on CVF before, but I don't know if any member has actually stayed there???

                                I've just campared my calendar to the visiting cruise ships to Ålesund Harbour 2013.
                                It seems like it will not be so many trips to the beautiful city this year as it has been the past couple of years.

                                But I found out that week number 25 will be rather hairy:
                                18.6. is my 50th birthday
                                19.6. AIDASOL, CELEBRITY INFINITY and QM2 will be in Ålesund together
                                19.6. is the 50th birthday of my best friend
                                22.6. NATO Tiger Airshow will be held at Ørland Air Station

                                One thing I know is that I must try to get the day off on the 19th, as I would very much experience three large ships at once in Ålesund
