When The Sun Shines..

"When the sun shines, angels are travelling," our Tour Guide in Bergen said. Now, we're no angels; but the sun certainly shone for us last week in Norway. It flashed off the waterfalls and made the green fjord water glisten as we sailed past.

One fjord, one pair of big sunglasses. And me.

We had a wonderful holiday and I have lots to tell. But most of those stories are still in my head for now, waiting for a chance to escape.

Phrase book borrowed from (who else but) Uncle Dave

I have been answering emails this morning, but I am also looking forward to looking at my Google Reader. It's full to bursting with enough excellent lunchtime reading to last me all week. And then there is the laundry pile, which will probably stretch into next week too. It's good to be back...

Oh, look. Family togetherness. In the coffee shop at Geiranger Fjord Centre

Welcome home & thank you for sharing these pics of you & your family enjoying your visit to Norway...I have to add that I cannot hear the word 'Fjord' without the whole Monty Python Parrot Sketch flooding my brain!! Did you see any Norwegian Blue Parrots in your travels?!!! :)

Good luck with the washing pile... it's the downside of going on holiday really.

Gail said...

Welcome back. Looks like a great trip. Can't wait to read more about it.

Looks lovely.

Now see fjords - make me think of Hitchhikers and twiddly bits as well as Monty Python :)

Hope Uncle Dave had a good time too.

Sandie said...

Welcome back. I've missed your postings. Norway looks beautiful, I imagine you came home with lots of photos and stories. Hope the washing pile has gone down!
