Norway by sea

DSC_3915_960.jpg This year we tried something completely different and spent our vacation on a cruise ship. Our journey started, however with a trainride to Hamburg, where we spent a fun weekend sightseeing. From there, we went aboard the AIDAblu on a 10-day cruise up an into the west norwegian fjordlands. The weather was,… well I guess „norwegianlike“ would describe it best, but I think that made the trip even more interesting. Besides one foggy day of low clouds, we had good views of almost all of the landscape. We even had a perfectly sunny day in Bergen, which is the rain capital of Europe. Our trip took us to some really amazing places like Stavanger, where we took a day trip to the Prekistolen. Other ports included Eidfjord, Molde, Trondheim, Alesund and the world famous Geiranger. Check out the pics in „travels“.

summer recap…..

…okay, I admit I’ve been a bit idle in writing lately (what’s it been….3 months now ? ). Needless to say, I’ve been busy.

My new job is taking up a good portion of my time. It’s very interesting and challenging so that makes it worth the many overtime hours I’ve spent pursuing it (compliments to Silke, who supports me greatly and is very understanding, even when I get home after a 12 hour day). The project will be launched in November and after the initial support phase, things should quiet down somewhat. By the holidays I should be back  to a normal work week.

In July we had a great visit from Chris and his family. They stayed with us over the weekend and then ventured off on a ten-day scenic excursion through France, Switzerland and Italy, then returning for an overnight stay before the flight back to Oregon. We had a wonderful time visiting with them and also had a nice side trip to Strassbourg while they were here (take a look at the pics in media).
