Trondheim City Walk

A walk through the city on medieval streets, It is very common to see flower pots in the windows of houses, along with hanging hearts and lights. The gold building was a private 140 room house that is now the royal residence. The island is Monk Island, a former monastery.

The Nidaros Cathedral is the coronation church. The archbishops palace holds the royal jewels. If you look closely at the 1969 statue of St Michael at the top of the cathedral you will see the face of Bob Dylan, an homage to his protest of the Vietnam war.

An ingenius solution to getting you and your bike up the hill. One third of the city is students. There is some coordination involved.IMG_0733 IMG_0734 IMG_0735 IMG_0736 IMG_0737



Honningsvad and Nordkapp at 71 degrees North

We had an adventure scheduled to go to North Cape at the 71st parallel. We started up on the bus in heavy snow blowing sideways. Part way up we had to stop and wait for the snow plow. But eventually they cancelled the last leg due to heavy wind and snow. So we spent the day in Honningsvaag. You can get whale at the local corner pub. The ice bar Artcica just opened for the season. Claiming to be the northernmost bar. They don’t serve alcohol though.IMG_0364 IMG_0361 IMG_0358 IMG_0352 IMG_0349 IMG_0347
