Excavated in 1904, the Oseberg ship was used in the 800s and has been on display in Oslo for nearly one hundred years.

Waterfall Wednesday

"Norway in a Nutshell" waterfall

#Norway #NorwayinaNutshell

I thought about another Norway trip this summer (where today’s photo was taken near Flåm), but ended up opting for a return visit to Iceland instead. Last time in Iceland I explored the area between Reykjavík and Diamond Beach pretty well so this year I’ll head north and west to explore the Westfjords and surrounding areas. I’m going to be sleeping in my rented van which comes equipped with a heated bed, sleeping bag, chairs, camping table, refrigerator, kitchenware, and camping gas. The van costs less per day than my lodgings alone last time. And the van is, obviously, far more flexible in terms of where I end my days. Can’t wait.

På Trappen in Dragør

På Trappen (Strandstræde 8, Dragør, Denmark)

#Dragør

I took today’s photo in 2011. Using Google’s street view I see that nothing has changed in the past eight years. After doing a little research it looks like this 235-year old building won’t be changing in the future either. This place was protected beginning in 1945. Although the sign indicates a bakery, this hasn’t been an active Danish bakery since 1976.

I found the photo below from when it was an active bakery, but this picture may be from a hundred years ago.

På Trappen was built as a bakery in 1784 for baker Peter Christian Trochmann.

Another interesting tidbit I learned from researching this building is the Rolling Stones stayed nearby in 1966 before their concert in Copenhagen. They stayed in Dragør to avoid the fans in the city, but the strategy didn’t fully work as their location was discovered.
