    Re: This is Ålesund

    Thanks :-) Yes, that would be great :-) My better half and I spent a whole weekend in Kristiansund a couple of weeks ago. And I must say that I really love that city. We were staying at the new Thon hotel, which is a beautiful hotel :-)

        Sundown in Aalesund from Fjellstua at Asla mountain.

          A fishingboat on its way to the sea early in the morning.

              So much happened in this thread, and I did enjoy looking at it while I was away. I see that I (probably undeservedly) have retained a reputation as an Ålesund expert, dating from that “then and now” challenge Ombugge set me some years ago!!!!

              As it happens that was also an occasion when QM2 was in town. So Sterkoder, your photos bring back nice memories and I well remember the striking effect of a large ship on the townscape. I’m therefore all the more appreciating your new angles and viewpoints, and might if I may especially pick out the one with the foreground rooftops in #595/4 and 5, and the wall reflection of Celebrity Infinity in the new hotel. As for catching Norge on the same trip! WOW!

              Can’t not mention the seagull nest, the ultimate pakarang view, and the rainy fence pole! All favoutites.

              And so I was scrolling down admiring this and that when suddenly there was that lovely avatar of the Coat of Arms, and I cheered out loud TNAalesund is back!
              Great to see you here, great to hear your news, and great photos (in other threads too I see).

                      Nice yacht coming to Aalesund on Saturday: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/alesundogo...cle8020277.ece



                      Who is on board??? My guess is Bill Gates and family. (Fits with the age of children)

                          More details on this one: http://www.superyachttimes.com/yachts/details/369 and http://www.edmistoncompany.com/yacht-charter/utopia-82/

                          Fancy chartering it for a week? I'm sure it won't cost too much!

                            A mere 435.000 euro per week according to the article.

                            PS> It looks now like others have seen the possibility of it being Bill Gates coming to Aalesund for a stroll in the streets. (And maybe up the steps to Fjellstua???)
                            A visit to Atlanterhavsparken Aquarium is apparently already arranged.
                            At least he and his family will not have to compete with a large flock of cruise passengers. Only the Marina in town.
                            Lucky for them. If it was 07. Aug. when both the Rotterdam and QV will be there and the competition would be heavy for the best photo spots.

                              I was right, it is Bill Gates w/family who are in Aalesund today, after spending a night at a small and nearly unknown hotel in an even less known place call Glomset: http://www.storfjordhotel.com/

                              But the yacht Utopia hasn't shown up yet.
