Norway and Ireland - June 2006
From Viking Ships to River Boats
In June we set out to explore Oslo and Bergen Norway and most of the southern half of Irelend.
Oslo - Old Ships and Old Friends
Oslo we saw viking ships, polar exploration ships, Thor Heyerdahl's Kon-Tiki
and Ra boats and the Vigeland sculpture park. But most importantly, we visited
with my friends Jan and Brit - I have known Jan since 1966.
Bergen - Fjord Scenery and Grieg's Home
On the trip from
Oslo to Bergen, we saw spectacular scenery in the mountains
and the fjords. In Bergen we
visited Grieg's home,
buildings and the waterfront fish market (see the salmon in the picture on the right).
Ireland by Car
road trip in Ireland, we saw it all - from scenery to sheep, from
castles to the Cliffs of Moher, from the Waterford factory to waterfront
Ireland by Boat
On our boat trip up the Shannon River, we saw swans, locks, small villages and local pubs with live music.
These two pictures were taken by the Murphys, the couple who took the boat
trip with us.
