We might struggle just to stand up or walk outside today.

Well, this is a sign that the road is only for people walking, no cars.

This afternoon, evening and night, and perhaps the whole weekend, there will be stronger winds than a storm, so it is probably best to stay inside if you live in the area on the west coast of Norway.

It might be very difficult to just stand up or walk outside.

Take a look here:

I am working this weekend, and wonder what will it be like to be outside in my little Fiat 500C. ??!!

Out walking today.
No snow and no umbrella.

Smart Bike technology has arrived in town.
Using El- bikes is a good way to come around and see different places.

(I have never rented an el-bike, but I have hired ordinary bikes in Denmark, Italy and Japan.)

MÆHLE has been in town since 1896.

Mæhle has been selling clothes as far back as 1896.
But now they are selling their shop(s) to the German company Gerry Weber. I hope they will do well!
A bit sad that more and more family owned shops are giving up.

Sunday 24 January 2016

We are giving up.

A message on a window I passed in the city centre today.
Translated to English it said: We are giving up....

Who is giving up?
The shop owners or the burglars?

Happy weekend!

Monday morning.

It is always smart to fill up the tank with petrol on Monday mornings.
Much cheaper than the rest of the week.

( 1Norwegian krone is 0.11 US Dollar )

The dining area.

One more glimpse in to the Clarion Hotel Air, this time from the dining area.
I have not tasted the food, not even the coffee, but one day I hope to try it, or perhaps go for afternoon tea at the hotel?

Different STYLE

Last night there were a couple of young women standing waiting for passengers on one of the last planes that had just arrived.

It was COLD and - 4C.

I just noticed the very different styles that they had.

Friday 8 January 2016

Nothing changed..

An old door ( and windows) that I always have to admire when passing. As far back as I can remember, it has been special and beautiful.

Another sunny day.

Another COLD and sunny day.
Here a glimpse around the lake at the city park.

Whoever bought all the interesting books... did a good job :)

BLUE SKY today.

Finally we have got a sunny day with BLUE sky.

This is Clarion Hotel Air, a brand new hotel. One day I will show you more pictures from inside.
It is close to the airport and the beach.

I like the art ( The Messenger by Per Dybvig) at the entrance, and the architecture looked special today with the bright ( Sunny:) light.
