If you do the Norway in a Nutshell journey, don’t think that the bus ride between Gudvangen and Voss will be a good time to take a nap because there won’t be much to see. The views are as good from the bus (see above) as they are from the train, boat, and Flåm Railway.
On the Amsterdam Canal Tour I took today’s photo. From this location you can see 15 bridges if you turn your head 180 degrees. This pic shows six of those bridges. I went back at night and took a photo from the shore to see what it would look like lit up.
Leidseplein was a rather hopping spot in Amsterdam day or night.
Today’s random desktop image of the day comes not from Japan but from a trip to Napa we took early last year. The displays of candy, chocolates, desserts, and other things designed to put a few pounds on a consumer were mere eye candy for me.
On one of the rare days in which it isn’t raining in Bergen, the place is absolutely beautiful. With average rainfall approaching 100 inches per year (for reference for those of you, like me, who live in the Pacific Northwest, that’s more than Portland and Seattle combined!), a view like this isn’t frequently possible. I hope to visit Bergen again someday.
