As you all know, my best mate Craig and his girlfriend Trine have been in Norway for the last 18 months. Trine is heading back to SA to work at UP MRI again for a year - so she kinda arranged a little get together with all her mates at her parents' cabin on the fjord just outside Trondheim to say cheers
We crawled out of bed on Saturday and in true Viking tradition headed into the forest for a walk - it was sunny after all! It's like nothing I have ever seen before, and because its spring here every thing was lovely and green - including carpets of spongy moss covering everything! I was being a showoff and hurling myself of the sides of the mountain onto the stuff and enjoying the soft landing - only to be outdone by Paul (the guy in the suspenders) who did a perfect back summersault off an old WWII German army trench onto the moss below - wicked. BTW - the hills around the fjord where the cabin is are covered with old German trenches and gun points that were used to guard the German battleships in the Fjord. The entire fleet of German warships were kept in the fjords to hide from the allies during the war, and it's pretty weird seeing the overgrown remnants of the Gerrie occupation dotted all over the place
And as soon as I had arrived, I was back in the car and back off to the airport for the flight home. I can say with complete conviction that I absolutely adore Norway. It's the most beautiful country I have ever visited (that's the scenery and the locals folks ;) ) and have already started scouring the web for 'Learn Norwegian in 24hrs' courses and
www.nordicbrides.com in anticipation of my immigration there. Thanks to Craig and Trine for spoiling me and making every other country a mild disappointment when compared to your place!
