Preikestolen

Dusk snuck upon us as we sat in the Lilland Hotel in the Preikestolen Village, sampling beers and munching on olives with multigrain toasts. It had been a long day, and we could hardly muster the energy to head back to our bed and breakfast in Hundvag. I wanted to get some thoughts down on […]

a Rendezvous in Oslo

Ah, the journey that is traveling. I came quite the direct route to Norway. Something like Boston to Lisbon, to Munich and then to Oslo.

51.1657° N, 10.4515° E: Germany

Oddly, February was the perfect time of year to go to Germany. I resided on the third floor of the Zarda’s home in Istein (outside of Frankfurt) for close to two weeks. The small window overlooked fields that remained empty as the winter came towards its end. The first morning brought a surprise as I […]
