Dear blogger friends,
I am still alive.
I must admit I have missed our common blogger community.
It has been too easy to post on FaceBook.
Well, I am happy to still have contact, even visited "old" blogger friends.
Like Excpat traveler in Victoria, Li Cruiser in Sweden, and our common friends in Southern France and our fav friend in NE Australia.
I miss our friends in SF Bay Area
must admit I am 12 years older than
my first blog.

First post from my Tablet

Hi, something new for me to post from my Tablet. Very different. Need to practise.

in fact, as a retiree I have visited: Norway, Sweden, Finland, Svalbard, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Chile, Argentina, Brasil, Sint Maarten, USA, Canada.
I have only a few Photos available on my Tablet.

Next project: Post from my Smart Phone..

Hi blogger friends,
I'm alive.
Thanks to "The Old Lady in The Hills" for a wonderful season card.

Well, here we have mostly stayed at Home:
Anna fall on the floor and broke her hip.
Operated but still injured.

In 2015, we travelled a lot. from New Zealand to Spitzbergen. i.e. 45 degrees South to allmost 80 degrees North.
Even met blogger friend Robyn in Australia...

Here is Winter.
And for Norwegians Winter sports. On Snow. Not on Ice.

We follow the campaigns in US for precidency.
For me as a European, I understand what might be important for "Homeland"; but I must say:
Do not believe to save the world by spending time and Money and lives to change civilations more than 5000 years old.

Second leg of 24 hours that felt like a week

You know, when in good Company, time is nothing else but what Your clock and calendar shows.
So it was for us from TORsday until Friday afternoon.

We went by Car South of the Border to buy something and then drove to some social media friends at a Camping (RV) park. Talking. dinner, walking and staying overnight. What would the world have looked like without trusted friends? We have seen enough of stupid actions, based on non-trust and religious misunderstandings for too many years. With other Words: Trust and respect makes Peace.

Here is some Photos from Our 24 hours Journey South of the Border and Meeting With friends.

Green thinking
Pink for thinking of People With Cancer
Just arrived the Camping Site
Barbecue, what else?
It was blowing, but warm enough to walk With Shorts.
Pleasant to walk here

Next Morning - a late Breakfast - that is what we need during Vacation.
Vacation? Haha, we have Vacation all Year round - Lucky we are.
Part 3 will follow
Have a great Sunday

24 Hours
Yes this it is what this is about: 24 Hours.
From Thursday to Friday. Going South of the Border.
Some shopping. Combined With visting People. Normal?
Well, I have been on Social media With Frida for many years.
Her husband not. My Wife not. I know they might have been suspecious.
What kind of contact?

In fact we met Frida and Husband first time for Coffee, Ice-Cream and Strawberries and a talk in their wonderful Home on Our way South of the Border. In fact, we were at the Platform in Sunshine. 

Who wished us welcome but this beautiful Cat?
I have only known Frida via Social media, and we all know, some People say something regarding themself which are inncorrect.  In this case: We knew each other beforehand.
Like old friends for years we met.
Beautiful view from Platform
Svein and Tor at Larkollen - so relaxing and a good converastionyyy
And here, Frida, my since longe social media friend
I must say, it was a blast to meet Frida and Svein - first time.
This is part one of this 24 hour story, so stay tuned

Anna Wake up early this Morning,

to defrost Our freezer and fridge.
After around 15 years of service, they did not live up to modern standards any longer.
It took in fact 2 more hours to get rid of the  Ice in the Fridge than in the Freezer.
The New ones, combi freezer and fridge was expectet between 1 and 5 pm.
They came at 1:25 pm.
Then the Food had been out allready for 4 hours.
We saved the most. Luckely.
But the Kitchen was a mess for several hours and still are. You will not see. Only all Our memories which topped Our old ones.

And the Magnetics as well.

Well, we needed a time out, on Our balconny after the first efforts
Tomatoes we will ave until the Frost
and of course enjoying Our orchide and Dino, who seems to be very hungry.
Tomorrow, Thursday and Friday we will visit social media friends in Southern Norway and as well do some shopping just South of the Border..
Next week we will go up North in Norway.
By plane and Rental Car.
Visiting an "old" friend of Our Son.
We are greatful having Connections With Our kids friends. Broken the generation gap. It is important.
We wish you the very best

Tor blogging again

it is a long time since I posted here.
Maybe it's because after Retirement and writing for 45 years I needed a pause?

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

Since my last post, I've been travelling again.
Several times.
My New life as a retiree.
I will continue travelling as long as my body Accept the Challenge.

I have met New People, fantastic ones in Holland.
For Your information, after the "Black Death" it was a periode of time it was more
Dutch (Holland) People in Norway than original Norwegians.

Since my last post, Anna has retired-

So now we are free to travel,
thanks to Our trusted Cat Sitter.

Last weekend we were in Tromsö at allmost 70 degrees North.
It was a X-Mas Gift to Anna and my X-Wife.
