Mine yndlingsting langs med vejen... My favorite things along the road

Så vi kørte fra Herning Danmark til Helgøya Norge tog jeg MANGE billeder af ting som jeg troede var interessante--ting som er forskellige fra tingene som jeg ser hver dage.

As we drove from Herning, Denmark to Helgøya, Norway, I took MANY pictures of things that I thought were interesting---things which are different from the things that I see everyday.

Masser tunneler igennem bjergene.... du kan ikke finde disse i flad Danmark!
Lots of tunnels through the mountains.... you certainly cannot find these in flat Denmark!

traditionel norske hegn....
traditional Norwegian fences.......
skilte som fortæller dig at "pass på" for mange ting....ELG....
signs that tell you to "look out" for many different things..... MOOSE...
og mennesker på ski...
and people on skis.....

men min yndlingsskilt som var i Drøbak Norge og fortalte os at passe på for Nisser!!
but my favorite sign was in Drøbak, Norway and told us to look out for Nisser (elves)!!

masser store amerikanske biler... Jeg har aldrig set en "Suburban" i Danmark!
lots of big American cars.... I have never seen a Suburban in Denmark! Men det bedste ting at vi så på vejene i Norge var mennesker ligesom denne mand:
But the best thing we saw on the roads in Norway were people like this guy:

Those guys on roller skis still shock me and no, I won't be trying that ever I think...if I could stand on normal skis I'd be impressed!!!! Never seen the Nisse sign but then again I've never been down where Santa lives like you...lucky girl...

I remember being impressed by some of those things too, my first time in Norway!! Not so much the big American cars.... that seems to be different. Funny how things change... BTW Kelli, I'm sorry I left the comment about the spelling issue. I SO never meant to start anything.

Very glad you had a lovely time in Norway!

Of course you have to look for nissen in Drøbak, who else picks up Julenissen's mail? (There's a store there that gets his letters!) Even that little nisse has a mail bag...think of the travesty if someone spilled Santa's mail!

Glad you enjoyed your trip! We saw a woman on the rollerskis a WEEK after the snow had melted. I was like, Dude, you have a problem if you can't take a vacation from the X-country skiing for even a week!

Great job capturing all the uniqueness of Norway.... the elves sign was the best! I guess you didn't actually see any... or I'm sure you would have posted a picture! lol Thanks again for sharing all your discoveries with your blog readers :-)
