Rønningen

Another sunny day outdoors: Sunholic, or snowholic ... or both :-) We're still in a mood for finding the perfect living place, or rather living space: ... an alternative if many visiting friends: and maybe the perfect compromise ?

About being a lizard ...

... lying on the sun ... ... by a lazy day ... Going upper, hoping for best ... ... and feeling the wave :-) On our way back, we met the dream: ... for a lazy lizard: And I know that's incredible, but it was so close to Hell ...

Holmaskoia, dag # 2

After a freezing night, here we are :-) Our nice, however not heated room ... Some holes in the roof in addition to that :-) It was -17°c outside, so after a short ski trip, we prefered to take pictures of the inside. Perhaps the most important part: watch the stove and make water: Another essential concept in cabin trip: food & drinks to keep warm :-) Or maybe some music as well. yes, it's a real piano The sauna was sadly not heated anymore, but available for pictures. Just imagine :-) ... [Lire la suite]

Olympics

There are things you cannot joke with. In France, it's wine&food. In Norway, it's Winter Olympics. Colleagues depressed after having waited all night long some well-long (and annonced!) planned medals, there was nothing to laugh at actually. Even when French cross-country achieved nice job at the beginning of the week. Even when Norwegian newspapers were proudly talking about 28 medals this year. Well well well. Everything is much better now, and you can feel it: copyright adress.no Both Emil Hegle Svendsen... [Lire la suite]

Snow walking ...

It was supposed to be more relaxing than skiing. The sun showed up, and Trondheim was smoking.      Of course, walking in 40 cm wet snow was much more exhausting than skiing. But it was fun after all :-) Another nice Norwegian day ...

Warm snow

Yes, that's possible: Melted snow + rain = very heavy and wet snow. Not exactly easy to ski on: Good news is that we are improving our "langrenn-style" :-)

Ooops, we did it again ...

Sunday morning, about noon: Sunny sky among snow showers! Within five minutes, our new beautiful shiny car is eager to drive the fresh snow: we are almost Norwegian now :-) And some minutes later, sun is still here! Incredible!     ... and we are ready to make the track:      Nice day as well, as we managed the good sunny timing :-) Cross country skiing is goooood :-)
