I was lucky and got sent to Australia for a few weeks of work just before Christmas. From freezing Oslo to 35C Perth After the work was done, I explored the south-west coast for 12 days. Didn't bring a camera, but here are a some photos from the phone at least, and a stern warning not to buy LG Optimus 4 for its camera qualities.
Last weekend we had our annual "expedition" with work. The previous years' expeditions have been quite relaxed, but this year we did the "Rallarvegen" bicycle route. Not a relaxing weekend by any means, especially if you're an office bound code monkey for the rest of the year, let me tell you.
Some more photos from my little motorcycle trip this weekend.
Like I said in the other thread, it's been a looong time since I last did any trips on the motorcycle. Last year it stood in the garage most of the season, waiting for me to get off my ass and replace various things. Getting back out there for the first time in a year was like meeting an old friend again :-) Had a test run last weekend, and when I saw nothing but suns on the forecast on Saturday, it was time to dig out the yellow bag.
Some photos from a weekend in september. We do an "expedition" with work every year, the past two years have been to the mountains, this year we went to the south coast (not far from where I'm from, actually). Some photos by me, some by my colleagues.
The trip started on Friday when we took the train early in the morning from Oslo to Kristiansand. It's about 4 hours, and much of the countryside along the railway is beautiful farmland, so it's a nice trip all in its own. In Kristiansand we boarded an old fishing boat.
(Just testing the blog thingy)
I went exploring some backroads this weekend. Sometimes it feels like I've "used up" all the roads in Oslo's immediate vicinity, but once I head out there, I always find some forest roads crisscrossing the valleys and mountains between the main roads. I just have to let go of the notion that my bike is a street bike.
