A wandering bird's-eye overview of most things even vaguely related to travel, and an opportunity for writers, artists and photographers to contribute the historical, the hysterical, the quirky and quixotic... anything with heart.

After the rain
After the rain

In Norway there's an ancient Nordic saying: "There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing." But  2-weeks of rain and a shredded car tyre will dampen any travelers' spirits, no matter how magnificent the scenery.

And with Summer finished, many shops, cafes and assorted establishments are already closed.

Still, a beautifully spectacular part of the world. Oh yes, and no tourists this time of year.
