It's looking a tad overcast, grey and chilly there.

It's blue sky, sunshine and light cloud here :P
It is showery, but we've just visted the local cider house so everything is fine.

I was going to say I base my favourite Scandi countries on Monty Python. There's the Norwegian Blue parrot, there's the Swedish subtitles during MP & The Holy Grail. But Finland? Then I remembered....



P.S. Has anyone actually read the new YouTube TOS?

@Regulator I kniw you like a nice church, here is the CofE outpost in Balestrand, it was set up for the British tourists many years ago and has a resident vicar from May to October.

It is one of the many anomalies of churches that if it were in Scotland or Wales, it would not be Church of England, but because it is in Norway, it is indeed Church of England...

That particular anomaly is not the stand out example.

No, we're going to take the railway to Myrdal before transfering to the Bergen train. There are Chinese everywhere.

It is interesting that every American we have talked to over the last week have felt the need to personally apologise for Trump.

Back at the notel in Bergen with a nice room upgrade, the corner harbour view with wetroom and mahoosive bed, plus a little welcome back note from the management.

They must know I think I am important.
