    three seasons

    I was in Norway back in 1978, had a week of liberty, saw three port cities ... Trondheim, Bergen, Oslo. It was great, went hiking in the fiords, etc. What fun, especially having spent over two months on a submarine, at sea, submerged, no daylight. The sea food was fantastic, so was the beer. It stayed light out forever at night, being so far north. I was told by the US Ambassador (a few of us were his guests, it was by drawing, I got lucky) that Norway is a land of three seasons ... July, August, and winter. I was there in late July. It was a fun time for me.

    I was in Norway for a week in August 1968, part of a holiday hitch-hiking around Scandanavia. It was *gorgeous*. I was told the weather was exceptional at that time (hot and sunny). It was the most beautiful country I have ever been to; the fjords are literally breathtaking, one of only two times in my life I have experienced that phenomenon on seeing a landscape or panorama.

    Should you desire a third experience, come to NZ. We also have breathtaking fjords and amazingly beautiful landscapes. :yes:

    So how's that Norway femanon roadtrip plan going guys?

    In my opinion, there was only two places they could have shot the Lord of the Rings movies: Here in NZ, or in Norway. :thumbsup:

    I think I'm in love with AnonPirateGrrl. Ah, if only I were younger. And in Norway :)

    But a very fun video. Scientology out of Downtown and into BFE* is win. :happydance:


    *BFE = Bumfuck, Egypt. For those outside the US, it's American slang that means a place far away, and nobody lives there.
