I'm back...

I'm back.. to quote a known actor and Californian guvernor ! I hope to blog more often in the future, so i hope you will comment what I will publish.

Some days ago I came back from a trip on the coast of Norway on the nice ship «Finnmarken» from the company «Hurtigruten». The tour took 12 days and I came to see most of the coastline of Norway together with people from USA, England, Germany, Holland.. and some Norwegians (!)

The first card is from the city Svolvær from the part of Norway called Lofoten. The card shows the ship I was on and the phenomen of the sky called «Northern Light or Aurora Borealis». You can see this in wintertime in the Northern part of Norway, and as you can see its spectacular.

The second card shows the city of Tromsø, also called «the Nordic Paris». Its the largest city of Northern Norway, and also one of the pretties.. I think.

Old postcards from Norway..

Today’s two old postcards shows the different landscapes of the western part of Norway. The first card is from an island called Herdla a part of the community where I live - Askøy. Under the 2nd world war most of the island was an airbase and airport for the Germans (!) After the war it could have been the new airport of Bergen but other location was found. Today most of the island is a golfcourse (!!)

The second card is from the road up to the mountain plateau Hardangervidda. The text on the card says: The new road to Måbødalen. The road was new when the card was published, but later they did build a safer and improved road so if you are heading this way with car you mostly drive in tunnels.

The postcards I will show you today is from England, bought in London on a postcard show called BIPEX - British International Postcard Exhibition, which is a must for postcards fans. For those who are interested - and in London - this years BIPEX is from 3rd - 5th september.
he first card is of Prince of Wales with family in early and happy days. This had a tragic history which ended with the carcrash in Paris that killed Princess Diana. But the postcard is a happy memory of the Princess and a happy family.
The second card is a advertising card for London Underground - the tube. It must be the best underground system in the world, but it need a lot of refurbishing because its very old.
