Touring Europe.














As most of you know, we have some very narrow roads here in Norway.
This is the biggest RV I have seen this summer. The Canadian couple who owned it had the car towed behind it. Inside they had a boat.... And they were heading to the Stavanger region, so drive carefully if you meet them. It is huge!

PS. I did not tell them about all the roadworks, nor about the fact that Stavanger is the Norwegian city with most roundabouts.

I hope they have a great time and that they will see lots of sunny days too.

New and old.














In Stavanger we have a mixture of new and old building styles.
This is an image taken during the event FJORDSTEAM when the Maritime Museum had some old/vintage cars parked outside.

It should be easy to spot...





















It should be easy to spot THE TOURIST INFORMATION office.
A bright colour, close to the harbour and old Stavanger.

Biker tour.




















They had all been working in different African countries with various jobs such as aid workers.
Six of them were Swedish and two came from Norway.
For eleven years now, they have had an annual MC tour.
This time they were touring in Norway, and as some of them said, these trips are a real highlight of the year, something to always look forward to.
"Grabbarna" as they referred themselves to, had high spirits, and even gave a "private piano and song concert" at the coffee place at Hå Gamle Prestegård.
Thanks!
It was a pleasure to meet you all!
Safe journey on the wet Norwegian roads, because today it has been pouring down most places on the south west coast of Norway.

More rain ...





















Plenty of rain and a bit of sunshine today!
Several old wooden boats are around the harbour this weekend.
It is a big event and some boats will do trips out on the fjord for those who would like to use the opportunity.

Enjoy your weekend!

Jörg and Silvia from Vienna




















This is Jörg and Silvia from Vienna /Austria.
They had arrived in Oslo a few days back, and had picked up their UK registered rental Campervan there, before heading south, and yesterday going to Lysebotn (a popular destination for many tourists in this area).

Nice talking with you.
I hope you enjoy Stavanger!
The weather is not so good, and I guess you are pleased for not sleeping in a tent just now.

Roots are important.





















Just to show you an image of how important ROOTS can be in life.

An image taken at the Sandnes area on one of my many walks.

I am not sporty.... just try to keep walking, no matter what the days are like.
