We’re starting out in the park today and going door hunting from there! Oslo is chock full of parks and statues in the historic and theater areas…… This fellow was across the street from our hotel in the Theater District. Per Aabel was a popular Norwegian comedian and actor. After studying ballet in London he…

Challenge Your Camera: A Bridge

I would much prefer walking over the bridge in my Featured Photo! Heights is not one of my favorite things! But, when I was in Bilbao, Spain I signed up for a tour that included a bridge…….I didn’t read the fine print (as usual) and didn’t realize until we walked there that you actually had…

Thursday Doors: The Big Picture in Oslo, Norway

We are done  (BOO HOO) with the cruise, but now we are spending some time in Oslo! I thought I would start with the big picture of the City Center of Oslo and then with future posts go with the more detailed doors.  Karl Johans Gate Street is divided with a park in the center…

Jo’s Monday Walk: Southampton, UK

We made our way to Southampton, UK to take our first cruise ever…… Since we had arrived a day early, I had made a list of the things we wanted to see. The SeaCity Museum was our first stop and the threat of rain and the grey skies added to my apprehension about going to…

Why Would You Want to Go to a Botanical Garden in Gothenburg, Sweden?

Becky’s Square Challenge is encouraging us to be UPLIFTING in the month of January! Coffee can always lift you UP!  Just the aroma of brewing coffee gives me a lift!

Haugesund, Norway: On the Waterfront

Did I mention it was a cold, blustery, full  on, red-cheek day, in August, when we visited Haugesund? Well it was, but we began our tour of the city with a brisk walk of the harbor, that went on and on, with boat after boat! The old warehouses along the harbor have been beautifully restored…

Thursday Doors: Haugesund, Norway

We’ve arrived in Haugesund on a very blustery, Sunday morning! This is a metropolis compared to the last few stops we have made in Norway! Haugesund once had a bustling herring industry, but now has gone over to the petroleum industry…..and I think the town has lost part of its charm because of it. There…
