Wordless Wednesday | Norway







Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be about posting a photo(s) without any words. But, I'm a rule breaker, so here are a few words:

1 - We've been to Norway a few times, which is kind of cool because Scott is Norwegian-American (with a little Swede thrown in for good measure). 

2 - My big takeaway from my time in Norway - it's cold. Really, really cold. I can see why Norwegians who came to America felt right at home settling in Minnesota and North Dakota. It's cold there too.

3 - I love that big crying baby sculpture. We saw it at the Vigeland Park in Oslo, along with some other weird and wonderful sculptures.

What words does this picture(s) bring to your mind when you look at it?

  1. I think of all our yacht club members that rave about visiting there. They all want to go back.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

    1. We've were very lucky to have been able to travel so much when we lived in Europe.

  3. I've never been to Norway, but my husband's family is from there, so maybe we will go visit in the future. It's definitely on my bucket list anyway. How long were you in Norway? And would you return?

    1. That would be neat to go back there since your hubby's family comes from Norway. I've been there twice - the first time was for a few days (cheap EasyJet tickets from Glasgow) and the second time was for a day on a Cities of the Baltic Cruise. My hubby has also been there a third time for family stuff. I think he ended up being there for a month or so.

  4. Looks like you saw some cool stuff. The baby is probably crying because it's cold and he's naked.

    1. Yeah, I think the baby is wishing he lived someplace warm :-)

  5. I loved them. The sculptor really caught the two-year-old in action. ;-)

    1. Actually, you're right - he probably is more of a toddler-age and not a baby. Either way, he was a very interesting and slightly creepy sculpture.

    1. We went to an outdoor museum that had all of these old wooden buildings. It was very cool.

  7. Norway would be nice to visit, i could not live through the cold winter. The baby statue makes me want to pick him up and bundle him in blankets and get him warm again!

    1. I'm done with cold winters. I had too many of the growing up. It's warm winters from here on out for me :-)

  8. Norway is one of my absolute favourite countries in the world, and possible the most beautiful. I can’t decide whether I like Norway or New Zealand better, but Norway is just an hour’s flight from where I live so it’s a lot easier to visit! We hope to sail to Norway in a few years time, hopefully as far as Svalbard but the Lofoten Islands are incredible too!

    1. We have been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel both abroad and in the States. We definitely count our blessings.

  12. Wow! Great pictures. The church is especially intriguing. The crosses tell me it's a church, but the architectural lines look more like an Oriental temple.

    I agree with Alex. No wonder that baby is crying!

  13. Gorgeous pictures (!), except the crying baby. That's just disturbing. Be well!

    1. He is a little creepy, probably because he's taller than me :-)

  14. We cruised up the Norwegian coast a while back - great holiday but although it was May it was still cold in places.

  15. Norway, on the bucket list. Cold doesn't bother us.... :-)

  16. I love Alex’s comment about the baby. :-) I’ve only been to Norway once on a family vacation (the last one I joined) when I was 17. It is an interesting country. We went in the summer, so I didn’t notice too much cold. All my next travels were without parents. :-)

  18. Family. I'm also Norwegian and Swedish, but have never been. It's on the bucket list. I remember seeing photos of that crying baby statue in my grandpa's album.

    1. Ah, you're of Norwegian descent, so the big question is do you like lutefisk and lefse?
