ABC - Å or A-ring
Dear blogfamily, friends and readers;
Can't believe it. Kan ikke tro det.This is the end - not A-Z, But A - Å (A-ring)
(pina dø -første runde er nå slutt. Skal jeg ta neste runde på ---, jo, den blir på norsk på min blogg 2 - OK?)
We have this week reached the end of the Nordic Alphabet.
(Not very different from other Germanic languages, but in Sweden and Germany they have even more vocals to help pronounce exactly.)
You might recall my challenge: Same object/meaning beginning with the same letter in both English and Norwegian.
Letter #29. Vocal #9. See here what we are talking about - in English
That's the difference between our Nordic Alphabet and the English -we have 3 additional vocals - after Z.
The Å or A-ring as it is called in digital programmingl:
So what to present, when my ABC challenge is to give you in Words and Pictures what means the same in both English and Norwegian, beginning with the same letter.
In English Å or A-ring does not exist.
Not at all. You can visit one of this worlds most scenary places named simply with the vocal Å . Simly one vocal: The A-ring. Where is it? Take the tour, and you will find out why this a world heritage nature.
Let me tell you a story, from back in 1967, when I had a "summer assignment" in a French Bank.
At that time, it was a very popular TV-serie named:
Impossible, n'est pas francaise - Impossible is not French.
I have adopted that ever since.
At last, you are all invited to our Summer Paradise ( invitert til vårt sommer paradis).
The first letter is A-ring. Pronounced like the O in Open
You may do a Google search. Åros
Nothing much to find. So to speak. Maybe the people who lives there year around will keep the place a hidden secret?
Look at this. It's practical and charming homes for the retirees.
A small community. 2 Minutes walks from the Grocery shop, Medical Center etc.
Here is, what do I know, a reason, the locals do not want to expose something about the spot:
The last River in SE Norway with Saumons and Sea Trouts. I was not allowed to take more than this photo.
This is very special: White Stones. Normally the Stones are more pink/red here. Photo taken about 1 km from the Summer House.
View from our tiny road - Northern Oslofjord. Close to our Summer Home. You like the view?
Here you see our Summer Garden and Home. In early Autumn dress. Norway.
