      Two weeks ago we had the opportunity to travel with the Non-Plus-Ultra of German Coaches: a new Neoplan.

      A pleasure for four days...

          When looking at Ralfs post here, I find it rather good timing to post my picture that I found in my archives today.
          This is a restored International A-4 model 1931. Huge contrast....

                    This is the bus you want to climb aboard if you want to get from the largest island which Kristiansund is built on, Kirklandet, over the Sørsundet bridge to Innlandet (the smallest of the islands) and the new Thon Hotel, the Tahitifestival and all the good shipspotting places....
                    Here I guess you stood in front of the local ICA grocery shop and took your picture.

                      Afghanistan

                      This pics should qualify under this thread since is has both a bus and a couple of cars, but not as you normally see them:


                      Received from - and photographed by - my youngest son while serving in Afghanistan last winter. Here is his text to go with it;
                      Near the highest point of the road, which is at one of the entrances to the Salang tunnel at 3600 and something meters. It’s generally cold and windy there. Toyota Corollas transported on the roof of a packed bus. A common sight in Afghanistan. (But it apparently have to be Corollas).

                      Sorry about the quality as it is a scan of print of a pics received by e-mail in Word format.

                            Short story, told before (in the old CV):
                            Kristiansund is built on three small islands (locally called 'land') and the city is devided into four such 'lands'.
                            Main 'land' and city center: Kirkelandet. Largest 'land' and where the airport is: Nordlandet. Smallest 'land' and the oldest part of Kristiansund: Innlandet.
                            The 'land' between all this, from where some of you might have seen my pictures of ships at Kristiansund Fish Terminal: Gomalandet.

                            From the sailing vessel period, unknown why, Innlandet is called Tahiti. From the same periode, Nordlandet was called Marocco (I've lived all my life at 'Marocco')

                            Our famous guitarist Frode Alnæs (from the group Dance With A Stranger) started a music festival at his place down by the docks at Innlandet: Tahitifestivalen. Many famous musicians have played there through the ten years of the festival: John Mayall, Manfred Man Earth Band, Kim Larsen, Sondre Lerche, Status Quo and so on, and of course all the largest norwegian names.

                            PLEASE..., please, go in to the link of Tahitifestivalen and click into the 'Bildegalleri' on the left side.
                            Then you all will see the great life and happy people at the festival:

                            MRK!: Dates for the 2010 festival is 23.-27. June. WELCOME Y'ALL!!!!!!

                            EDIT: Now I'm OT..... (hehehehe)

                              Here's a map explaining it all. I've also pointed out where Jan-Olav took his wonderful nightshot of the Bergsøysundet floating bridge from, in another thread

                              This is "my world" (Nope, haven't pinpointed my home. After all..., this is internet)

                                What treats to start the day, Sterkoder! Enjoyed browsing the Tahiti festival site, and absolutely thrilled with the annotated map. Well, I can never resist a map! J-O’s photospot on it too – I already had to confess that his floating bridge is one of the “inspirational photos” I have for this month.
                                There is no doubt that of all the major places on the Hurtigruten route, your city is the one I know the least. Only set foot on land there once back in 2003, and that to immediately get on a coach for the Atlantic Road excursion and on to Molde. I know, I have to do something about this . . .
