Meeting a new blogfriend in Norway

Meeting a new blogfriend in South East Norway
Vilt og Vakkert 
Most of my readers might have observed that Anna and “Papa” has met several blogfriends face to face during 2011 far away from Norway. Besides of course RennyBA and DianeCA, who lives in our part of Norway.
Ginnie and Astrid, did visit Norway and Oslo in April.
Then we went to USA and there we met:
Comedy +
and in Canada we met expat traveler
Later this year we went to Ollioules in Provence (Claudie and Pierre)
and a Month later to Austin, Texas.

Let us not forget: Phone calls are still in operation:
We did not meet eye to eye,but met voice to voice:
The Old Lady in the Hills
and Mrs Lifecruiser.

Last Saturday we went South from Oslo – about 75 minutes to shop in Sweden. We only shop what is favourable there. At least we say so;-)

This trip was planned (as allways when we travel) long ago. Beside visiting and staying overnight with Anna’s Best Woman and her hubby and Felicia’s kitten, we (papa) had an aditional plan:

Norwegian Blogger
Visit a Norwegian blogger, living in Fredrikstad. She has several blogs. Here is her profile. Read it and then you’ll understand why papa would visit (She is working as a Teacher, like her Husband and as you know: Anna as well).

Small World
We talked and talked and even realized that back in the 1880’s around, the two male of us had grandparents from the same tiny area in Telemark, Norway.
That’s why we have a saying in Norway (When meeting Norwegians abroad): It’s a Small World – Specially if from Norway

Do not be too curious. Do not excpect too much. We are talking December. When it is no Snow. It’s Fog or Rain or the Sun directly in your Eyes when heading South.
OK, here is some Photos:
Fruits. See the tiny Manx to the Right?
F - Window Shopping 
Window Shopping
F - Julegate by Night 
X-Mas Street in Fredrikstad, Norway. It was very dark around 9 PM
F - Turkey 
Food – Turkey as served at Mer (aldri mer i julerushet)
F - Are you allowed to take a Photo of us 
Here we are. A Flash Photo. Not the best; but we had a great time.
The other men stayed at Home (Flue or something).
F - after Dinner with waitress 
Closing time. The Food could have been better regarding the price, but we really had a wonderful afternoon and evening together. Here, to the left, my blog friend.

PS. We could have talked until the Dawn, at least…
Fruits next morning as well. These are Clemtines, which belongs to the same family of Trees as the Oranges.
In Norway we call  Oranges:
Appelsin. The origin is: Chinese Apple or Apple (from) China. You see?F Marta
PS. We met Marta and Monsen again. They are Cats and Daughter and Son of Felicia. Here is Marta. Monsen, the male cat, he was outside. (I’m a Male too, but staying inside)

I hope there will more to come, so stay tuned…..

Here as well

You and Anna travel to so many places. It's wonderful to be able to do that too.

I'm so happy that you had a great time in Sweden.

Meeting blogging friends is awesome and then some.

I love Clementines. I can eat a bunch of those in one sitting. Yummy.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you and Anna. :)
