Sky Watch Friday - Norwegian Skies

AUSTRIAN SPIES UNDER NORWEGIAN SKIES!
(all pictures may be viewed larger)


Four young Austrians, among them our son Felix, just returned from a two weeks' hiking tour through Norway.
Oslo, Bergen, Jotunheimen and Rondane National Parks, and then Trondheim.




Enough time to watch the Norwegian skies!


Felix the Austrian spy :D



Finally they reached TRONDHEIM, where they were allowed to put up their tent in the garden of this house.
And they were told the story of its owner:



The owner's daugther would leave for Oslo to study. So he was afraid of living a lonely life in his beautiful house at the sea on the outskirts of TRONDHEIM - without her.

Excellent!! What a trip your son (the spy) had. Gorgeous photos.
I am back home after tromping around hot and dusty Eastern Washington. MB

If they walked all the way between all the cities mentioned - they must be bit tired by now. On the other hand - they have seen (and taken pictures) of some of the best in our country.

Thank you.
