Bergen harbour in the old times...

Here we have two postcards that shows the harbour in Bergen from two different sides. The first one is from the “Fishmarket” which was more popular in the older times than it’s today. In the old days fishermen sold their fish from the boats, which the postcard shows. Today its boats in the inner harbour too, but its more cabincruiser’s and leisure boats.

The second card shows some of the harbour from the seaside, and this painting is from much older times than the first postcard. In the background you see two of Bergen’s mountains “Fløyen” and “Ulriken” which is very popular recreation areas for the people in Bergen and the tourists that visit the city. The harbour was and is very important for trade and visiting cruise ships.

Englands charm...

Todays postcards are also from England. Should I move to another country it has to be England, and these two cards shows why… Where these two cottages are located its not indicated on the cards, but it can be anywhere in the countryside of England. These types of houses you can see everywhere in England and that’s what make this island so charming. Its only one fault with England – and that the cars has to drive on the WRONG side of the road

Oxford and Cambridge

Today I’ll take the the trip over the NorthSea to England. These two postcards of Cambridge and Oxford is replicas of advertisingcards that shows some of the beauty of England. These two cities has the most famous universities in the world, and amongst many known people who has attended is Bill Clinton who did go to a university in Oxford in his younger days.

I have been to Cambridge ones, but Oxford many times. London is the number 1 city in England but Oxford is a very good number 2. If you have seen “Inspector Morse” on TV you have seen the beauty of the city and the surroundings. If you are going to England you MUST visit Oxford, you will fall in love right away…
