Ta-Ta (for now!) Norway!

For our final adventure together, my amazing Norwegian Chaperon,
Renny took me on a cruise to Germany!
We departed out of the Oslo Fjord
aboard a luxury ship aptly named Magic...
Taa-daaaaa!!! We toured around Kiel, Germany for a while...and met a nice little fellow sitting in front of Rathaus (the town hall)...but he didn't have much to say...which was fine with me 'cuz I don't speak German. However, Renny has LOTS more to say, so be sure to pop over there and learn more about our trip!
Back aboard the good ship Magic...as we cruised back to Oslo for my final night with Renny and his lovely wife Diane...I felt myself get a little misty-cupped recalling all of the wonderful sites I've seen here in Norway; The Royal Castle, Vigeland Sculpture Park, The New Oslo Opera House, the Norway Maritime Museum, and this trip to Germany! And of course, being a guest in Renny's home, where I learned to make Norwegian Seafood Delight, was the icing on the cake! It's been a wonderful adventure and I could not have asked for more!
Well, except....maybe...
for a glimpse of the Elusive Norwegian Beaver!
Hmmm...
Maybe they really ARE just an old wives-tale?
Maybe they don't REALLY exist after all?!?
Maybe.

Greetings from Norway... how nice to see you have visited my country. Found a link to you blog over at "Smiling with Daisy" - the name of you blog made me curious.. its a special name for traveling blog or what?...

I do indeed hope you enjoyed the visit and had time to look around, btw did you have a chance to travel outside Oslo? I live in the north-western part of Norway.

About the Norwegian beavers... yes they wear viking helmets, swords, drink a lot of beer and have a rude behavior. I haven't mentioned this over at Daisy yet because its somewhat controversial compared to the beavers in your area .. they seems to be more polite :o)

Takk for besoket :o)
