I had to escape Vienna for a week. Currently I’m home in Norway enjoying scenery like this:
So, this blog is about Vienna, so I won’t do a lot of posts from my holiday. But a few… I’ve spent the last week in my hometown and surrounding areas.
I saw much of it from the air when I flew in from Prague.
And I’ve had some relaxing days with my folks. PhD is a country far away from here. So while I am here I am on holiday.
Blurry evening shot of Husnes. The moon was very bright last night.
Today I visited the gardens of the castle in Rosendal.
I do so like this place. Roses are my favourite.
It’s been great fooling around with my phone.
Putting the newly acquired selfie stick to good use!
I hope you are all enjoying the last of summer! In a few days I am back in Vienna. I’ll miss all this.
And living life like these guys…
according to wikipedia:
In Norway, Pinnekjøtt is a main course dinner dish of lamb or mutton. Pinnekjøtt is a festive dish typical to Western- and Northern Norway, and is rapidly gaining popularity in other regions as well. This dish is largely associated with the celebration of Christmas, served with puréed swede and potatoes, beer and akevitt. 37% of Norwegians say they eat pinnekjøtt for their family Christmas dinner.
So do we. 😀
I travelled home about four days ago, and it’s been really awful weather the whole way. We’ve hardly been able to get out the door, without being drenched and blown away. A bit of a bummer, especially since the last few Christmases have been white. But oh well… today we were able to get out and see a little bit, like this place here. This is one of the local beaches, or rather, this is right next to one of the local beaches. It may not be surprising to you that it was quite empty today… 😉
