    If those two t-shirts ever meet again, they'll have some stories to tell each other

    Thanks for the photos Stig.
    A cruise in the Norwegian fiords is on our bucket list, Bob's had one stop in Norway in 1980 tall ships race and has always wanted to return.

    I love those pictures of you with the SOTC shirt on.

    I wore a Montana DNRC shirt to New Zealand....similar fashion. First time over seas and first time on a beach.


    Very glad you were able to find some good food. Country looks kind of harsh.....lovely.
    Winter is coming.

    Beautiful pictures Stig,

    The North is a truly wonderful place. Even more so when the weather is kind.

    We had biblical rain here in Oslo Monday and a bit Tuesday.

    I took a picture on the way to work the other day, but OsloFjord isn't a patch on those snaps of yours.

    Great photos, Stig. Just wonderful to see. Viking envy till I'm nearly dead of heartsickness. (Norwegian/Danish, mom)

    Did she speak to you in her mother tongue Jed when you were a nipper? Or did she not speak Scandwegian?

    I was amazed how fast my Norwegian came back from the dusty corner of my brain, where it has been vegetating for the last 35 years.
    3-4 days and I was conversing with the waiters and crew in Norwegian.

    I would look at a nice little boat-house and my brain would go : "Naust", look at a stable and :" Fjøs" would come up and after a while it just all came back.
    Very strange feeling.


    There are lots of similarities between Danish and Norwegian, but the tone of the language is completely different, they sing and we speak as if we were chewing on a boiled potato.

    And Boat-house and stable are : "Bådehus" and "Stald" in Danish.
