    Thank you very, very much Grindøya and yvneac.... your appreciation makes it all worth it.

    I do love autumn (and summer), much because I feel more "alive" (I know you know what I mean) and because there is more light and color too.

    Winter has always, since I returned back to Norway after having spent a significant amount of years in South East Asia, been very difficult for me. But, not to worry, I learn each day new ways to work around the "winter depressions".
    With best regards from Jan-Olav Storli

      It's very easy to understand why that place is like a dream. It's not the land, it's not the sea, it's not the sky either - it's the combination of them being present at the same place.

        I agree. I was literally blown away out there. It was bordering surreal. At one side, you had the silent fjord, and on the other side you had the noisier suburban town with all the lights and sounds.... and the feeling of almost being in the middle of the fjord was something different. (Even though "middle of the fjord" is far from the truth geographically.)

          THIS IS SOMETHING TO BOOKMARK!

          The local paper Adressa, also known by its full name Adresseravisen, has built a new media-house across the Nidelven river from Royal Garden Hotel.

          The sun shades at the windows contains pictures from their archives....

          In this link, you are able to click on each picture and see them on your computer, with a short narration (in Norwegian).

          For the clever of you, can you spot the TWO Hurtigruten - related incident-images?

          Which two "happenings" are they?

                I guess you mean the Sanct Svithun wrecking in 1962.

                        At Ravnkloa, the city's fish market, because of the changing of times, and great un-employment amongst Vikings, the "Last Viking" is now working as a traffic controller.
