One More Norway Post

I have a few more pictures to share. I don’t normally carry pictures of my kids with me. I had my pocket camera with me in Norway, so when people would ask me about my kids, I only had the pictures on the camera to show them. Here’s the picture I showed them of my […]

Norway Day 5 (Part 2)

On the night of day 5, I went to the Trumpet Karaoke Bar. The bartender was very friendly, and was kind enough to teach me some Norwegian phrases that came in handy. She also looked quite a bit like my sister. She even had some mannerisms that reminded me of my sister. I talked to […]

Norway Day 5 (Part 1)

Here is the overdue Norway Day 5 report. Day 5 in Norway was my last full day. I was there with a co-worker (who I’ll refer to as Rick, because that’s his name). Rick suggested that since the weather was great, we might want to leave work while there was still plenty of daylight left […]

Woke up. Had breakfast. Worked. Ran into a problem that I kept banging my head against until the day was over. Left work. Had dinner. Went back to the hotel. Slept. Day 4 kinda sucked.

Norway Day 3

No photos today. I took some, but they’re on the camera I can’t transfer from right now, so they’ll have to wait. Fortunately, there’s some stuff to write about. Unfortunately, I’m not feeling particularly creative, so it might be fairly dry. Work was productive. After work I walked back to the hotel and dropped off […]

Norway Day 2

For dinner today, I ate reindeer. Hopefully Norway doesn’t have mad cow disease (or mad reindeer disease) because it was really only cooked on the outside. It was pretty close to being reindeer sashimi. It looked like this: I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t so good that I would go out of my way for […]

Norway Day 1 Report

I’m in Norway. I arrived at my hotel around 4:00 PM local time. (Midnight my time.) I checked in, took a shower, unpacked, tried to get online, wandered around the area near my hotel, had sushi, watched a couple drug deals outside the window of the restaurant, went back to my hotel, tried again to […]
