Postcard from Norway

For the first year of many, I have not been on skiing holiday with my family. Today I received a postcard with greetings from everyone. It sure made me long for the snowy deserts of Norway...

I toes curled up as if I was hearing nails on a blackboard when Philip said that you can "...almost count Lithuania as Scandinavian". It made me immediately object and I sought the aid of Wikipedia to clarify and rectify the facts about Scandinavia. The term is used by many and often used wrongly, at least in the eyes of the Scandinavians themselves. Scandinavia is a term for describing collectively the countries of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, which makes it a geographical term although these countries have many other cultural, ethnical and historical ties.

Hold været

Four days more, and I will be off to Norway for my skiing holiday. Lets hope the weather will behave and be none of the hot or cold extremes we experienced the past two years. Check out the local Norwegian weather on TV2 Vær.

The skiing holiday

It is a tradition in my family to go skiing every year in week 11. Oddly enough, some 30-odd people we know have the same tradition, and we all go to the same place in Norway every time, every year. I hope to get a chance to practise my telemark technique again this year...
