Travel With Me : “Norwegian Wood”

The Beatles – Norwegian Wood

The story(travel) begins with this song… How much I love this song… a song, a colour, or someone, or just a story, can take us to its country, as now! Yes, we are going to visit (through my selections/what impressed me) to Norway! I love to search and to learn something new… This is enjoyable and exciting too for me. I hope it would be same for you too,…

Midnight Sun…. sounds strange for us who are not living in this arctic circle.

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon occurring in summer months at places north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle where the sun remains visible at the local midnight. Around the solstice (June 21 in the north and December 21 in the south) and given fair weather the sun is visible for the full 24 hours. The number of days per year with potential midnight sun increases the farther towards either pole one goes. Although approximately defined by the polar circles, in practice midnight sun can be seen as much as 90 km outside the polar circle, as described below, and the exact latitudes of the farthest reaches of midnight sun depend on topography and vary slightly year-to-year.

  1. Norway is a beautiful … country with lovely people, the only country in the world that don’t owe money to other countries. All because of the North See oil.

  2. I love your photo of Houses in Voss, Norway. I would like very much to hook a rug/tapestry of this photograph. I do traditional rug hooking – dye my own wool, cut in strips, and hook into linen. Is this photograph copyrighted? Would you be willing to give me permission to hook a facsimile of it for my own use? Let me know if you have any questions.
