Peaceful...

So, this is were we went yesterday. How on earth did they manage to make a living out of that place of rocks, stones, more rocks and a little bit of fields (that could easily be used on both sides- it is rather steep here) I really admire those people that settled here and worked as hard as they could to give their families food on the table and clothes on their bodies. Have a nice day!

Sooo beautiful!! Norway amazes me--where farms exist in seemingly impossible locations! And then there's trains that go up mountainsides! Oh, tunnels that take 1/2 hour to an hour to drive through because they are soooo long...oh, my...Men, Ja, Vi elsker dette landet! :o)

Hi
Thanks for stopping by my blog Marit (and saying nice things too)! Thought I'd visit yours and was pleasantly surprised to see images of a different part of the world. I did go to Norway once a long time ago on a school geography trip. Still have great memories of hiking and fjords. That rugged landscape reminds me a little of Shetland too (where I was born and my parents live). I'll definitely be back to visit your blog.

Sjøholt er jo bare et steinkast (i.e. et fjell) unna, og halvparten av slekta mi kommer fra Honningsvågen på Stadt.

You know, my husband never gets sick and is only comfortable when the temperature goes below 60 degrees F. After visiting a fishing hut in Iceland and hearing about their lifestyle, I see why he is the way he is. Only the fittest could survive such hardship.

I hope I can come to Norway soon. My grandmother was a Norwegian - but I don't know where her family was from.
