    Comment on YouTube video of 2018-April-19: I heart Trondheim

    Dear Captain, your 'Questions' this time first asked for my favourite spot in Trondheim. That's not easy to decide, but I don't think I have ever been in the city without at some point finding myself at Ravnkloa and pausing a while at the steps next to the statue "Den Siste Viking".

    But then I also have a favourite seat at Ila from which I look across to Munkholmen, a favourite rock to sit on at Hansbakkfjæra, and a favourite C-gull’s eye view over the city from Kristiansten Fortress!

    Another question asks what is my favourite memory of Trondheim..
    That must surely be the 24th July 2010 which is crammed with memories, from a 'fjord cruise' on Fosen and a total exploration of Ranheim to a spectacular helicopter trip! I somehow squeezed so much into that single day that it seems to defy notions of time.

    June 2013 when Serenissima returned to Trondheim has such special memories too.

      Yeah! I agree on the Ravnkloa area!

      But, I feel the area has lost it's charm the last decade(s). In the past, this was a really busy area selling a lot of fish and seafood - I remember Saturdays inside the old Ravnkloa building: it was very often jam-packed with people looking for something from the sea. Today, the prices are so inflated that there are rarely people going there. Also, I think it's now illegal to sit on the dockside eating fresh shrimps.

      Ahhhh.... the good old "Fosen"... and now, I'm about to relinquish my command on board the K too. Time flies.

        Here is a brain-exercise for all of you that THINKS you got Trondheim well covered... I thought I knew the location of all statues, having walked and biked so much in this city, but this was actually harder than I thought.

        Use the CMD and your mouse to zoom in and place the status where you THINK they are located. This wasn't as easy as I thought!

          I only knew Trondheim mostly from the sea side, and it was from the years I worked onboard hurtigruten.

          But anyway, I tried the test and of course got a miserable result.
          But funny anyway.

                Nice images Sterkoder - certainly hope you enjoyed your stay in Trondheim!

                The clouds in the Munkholmen shot really came out well in B&W.

                I heard about the car-show yesterday afternoon, a little after they had broken up and returned home.

                  I traveled with a friend who was on duty as guard on board the floating oil storage vessel NJORD BRAVO moored in Kristiansund, so he had to be back at a certain time in the evening. If not I might have contacted you (don't know your working schedule though.
                  We were at the American Car Clubs arrangement for just under an hour (we were told there would be old military vehicles there, but it was not), so we went down to Egon for a snack (pizza buffet, you know ;-) ) and then we drove over to Norsk Fotofagskole at Ila, just to see where the school was (as my daughter is starting her 2 year photographer education there this fall) Note: One happy father, on search for a place for her to live with at least her own bathroom. Anyone?

                This past week-end, the students who are finished with their two years at Norsk Fotofagskole had their farewell-party and exhibition.
                Each of the 38 students also placed their portfolio on tables for us visitors to look through.
                My daughter will start her two years education to become a professional photographer this fall, and as we had to go to Trondheim to sign a contract for her new appartement, we made a week-end out of it as a family, booked a room at the Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim at Brattøra, and "did" Trondheim. I didn't bring the Pentax all the time, but here are a few pictures from this beautiful city June 9th 2018.

                    Then we arrived at the school in their location at Ila, or rather Mellomila

                    Inside, the walls were covered with very nice pictures, and they all told a story (which is the main purpose with pictures)
                    IMG_3617 by Svein Ludvigsen, on Flickr

                    On the second floor, we looked through almost all of the 38 portfolios. What an inspiring place to be, what energy boost it was to walk in that building with all the creative energy around. (My daughter is to the far right)

                    On our way back to the hotel, it was time for ice cream from Simens isbar placed between the hotel and Rockheim

                    This was a picture taken unintentionally with my iPhone, but I saved it, because it can be a final picture showing how Trondheim put my world upside down, in a positive way

                        Wonderful collection from a summery city full of colour and light - the way we (especially me) love to see the city.

                        Why that seagull was alone with that fish?

                        All the others were at the city square looking for discarded hamburgers and kebab's.... LOL

                          Since my daughter now has an apartment in Trondheim, due to her starting the studies to be a professional photographer this fall, I must say Trondheim is my second home. I love the city!
                          We (she) got the key and took over the apartment this week-end, and what a week-end to be in Trondheim! The nicest weather and happy people all over, and then there is Bakklandet. You just have to experience.
