Photos and stories from travelling around

Photo: A Burud - Denmark zooPhoto: A Burud: York The members of our family love to travel. For almost five years we've planned to buy a new sofa, but what do we do? We go to Akkarvik, Marbella, Thasos and London ever so often, but are never able to afford that sofa...

These pages gather some of our impressions from a few of the travels we've had.

Travels without me telling about it

Telling (good) stories, selecting (good) pictures, takes a long time, when I'm the one doing it. Mostly because I'm very nit-pick.

Here's from Kristine and Ruth in Prague in April 2011.
Photo right: Ruth Haugnes (you can't use the picture) of Vlatava (Moldau).

Trips I plan to write about is possibly

  • Arild and me on Greeec Thassos Aug/Sep 2009. Reports will arrive some time before next millennium.
  • Four merry ladies in London Feb 2010. Who knows when that travelog'll be finished
