The hot dogs in Iceland are like those too, with crispy onions... you would like Iceland (hint hint).
Nice to relive the Norway trip! Tak!

Ah, such wonderful memories. The pictures are mesmerizing. That is what I love about traveling, all of the memories.

On my 52 Lists page of Places You Want To Go - I've added Norway based on your blog. I want to add Hungary too, because your stories were spectacular. Maybe its time to say goodbye to children and do small tours? To everything there is a season. I say this for selfish reasons.

Norway gets under your skin, doesn't it? Your pictures do something to my heart, I miss it so much. Next to the golden hills of California, Western Norway is my idea of paradise. I dream of a little white house on the edge of the fjord, some fruit trees and strawberry plants to take care of. Some day...

Ohhh, the rainy picture, really what it´s all about in june. Our old neighbour in NorthNorway had a saying "there can never be too much rain before midsummer" He was right. A dry spring ruins all crops, grass won´t grow, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, the few things that can survive upp north, needs rain and midnightsun to grow. Try Tromsö next time, the "Venice of the north" you will not regret. And why not wisit Bergen too =)

That's so weird! I was going to say something about Iceland too, but someone beat me to it... Beautiful photos!

Adore each and every photo and I know if it were me, I'd be remembering it all too. Breathing it in vicariously from my little spot on the map.

The first photo reminded me immediately of Lake Como. I want to go back THERE! xo

That is the great thing about travel....you can go back anytime you choose via your memories.

As for myself, I really want to go to Scandinavia to see stave churches, Viking ship museums, icy blue fiords and the midsummer nights when the skies never darken. But, most of all I want to see the Northern Lights so I guess I'll just have to go in the winter and the summer.

Enjoy your memories!

I like when the hot dogs are served on wax or parchment paper with a scoop of mashed potatoes instead of a bun. And you eat it with a wooden spork.


Such wonderful memories you are making! xoDonna

Aaahhh, lovely Norway! The photos are wonderful, Mary Ann! My hubby and I were on a cruise the first part of May. His birthday was May 3 and we were at the Oslo, Norway port. For a birthday celebration I took him to an ICE BAR! The bar tender said the only things not ice in there, were the liquor and herself! And ironically, she was from California. We had great fun toasting my husband, laughing and trying to take photos with fur-lined parkas and leather gloves on! The weather outside was very cold, but when we left the Ice Bar, it seemed not so cold. Haha! Great memories of Norway! Such a beautiful, clean country! Thanks for bringing back my memories, too!

Love love love travel memories (and plans for the next trip!)

Beautiful! And I liked the previous comment about small travel groups! You always go on amazing adventures!

At least you can still go back there in your mind and in your travel journals, Mary Ann. When I look at the roof top photo, I think I am IN one of those wonderful miniature train villages that people painstakingly construct to look so real. Wouldn't that be a blast?!

One more comment: it would be amazing if you did small travel groups with journaling incorporated. Perhaps Norway could be the first one. All of life's experiences lead us somewhere. Maybe your somewhere is to the airport with grown up students in tow. Sign me up!

Aaaah! But there's no place like home!

So wonderful pictures, verry nice!

A whole year since you went to Norway! It's not surprising you'd like to go back to such a cool place.

Maybe you will, quite soon.
