Summer days at Lillehammer!

A day out….

There is such a thing you know! Summer, in Norway! It might not be here every day in through the months of June, July and August… but it does come out once in a while! Then we just have to make the most of it!

Lillehammer offers so much for us to do and explore as a family. We have done a lot, but still much to do! Kids love daddy’s work! Well, maybe not ‘the work’, more the fact that they have access to Hunderfossen and all the rides and the fun stuff available for kids (at all ages)! They are also starting to get into the Troll’s and the many stories about them…

Still not all living up here, but soon the movers will arrive and then the whole family will be here. All in time for kindergarten and school start!

The 3 top pictures are all from Barnas Gård at Hunderfossen. The Peacock was showing off, Alex as well (hands full of ice cream) and the poor rabbits will not have any fur left by the end of summer judging the intensity of loves and petting by Kaelyn and the other kids holding and loving the little fluffy animals. The last picture is taken at the top of Hafjell with “the running man” (created for the Olympics in 94) in the background.

Greetings from Norway!

Well…. It has been just about been 4 weeks since I went over to Norway and started in the new job. Strange to be back in Norway, but a good strange! Just don’t get me started about the prices! Family ticket for us to get into the local pool? 400 Norwegian krone, or just about 35 UK pounds…. Nice pool though! Guess we will have to get a annual pass for that one. Just walking distance from the house too!

First snow fall has been (and gone). Had hoped to have an all white countryside to present to Kaelyn and Alex when they arrive tomorrow. But not to worry too much, I am sure we will get to have plenty of snow in the near future! Plenty and plenty!

So, the little ones and the Mrs is all arriving tomorrow. All our belongings are arriving 3 days later. Meeting them all at the airport in the afternoon tomorrow. To say that I am looking forward to see them all again is an understatement.

Picture is of the Opera House in Oslo. A new build that has been built in the years I have been away. Quite a few changes done in Oslo since 1997. Will have to do some serious exploring once we are all acclimatised to the Norwegian conditions…

Going, going…..

Going, going…..

15 years after leaving Norway and 12 years after arriving in the UK it is time to return to Norway…. I am flying over tomorrow and the rest of the Danielsen’s are arriving in 3 weeks time! Should be some fun stories to follow about my re-entry and Jane, Kaelyn and Alex’ introduction into “The Norwegian Way” and culture……
