Good Day, Sunshine!

Another beautiful weekend in Bergen!  Today, Sunday, was focused on a presentation for class tomorrow but yesterday was hiking with new friends from NHH.  We took the funicular up to Ulriken, the highest of the 7 mountains surrounding Bergen.  From there we walked 8 miles around to Rundemanen and over to Floyen.  This link shows the path  and here are some pics from day.  Leave it to the California girl to put her left foot into the mud.  Oh well!  Well worth a fabulous day of hiking and getting to know new interesting friends.

My posts are a lot of outdoor activity and I'm loving it!  So many beautiful places to explore.  And it must be done before the rain comes!  I think we are all so thankful for each day of sunshine we must take advantage of it because we know it's going to shift to rain, rain and more rain any day now.  Or that's what they tell me and I'm not going to take my chances and miss the sun :)

One thing I've been learning- Norwegians are slightly more reserved people on the whole (until they drink... more on this in another post).  They don't really say hi or strike up conversation with people they don't know (side note- this is a funny combination with me.. those of you who know me, I'm very friendly and like to meet people- sometimes I think they think I'm crazy here!  I said hi to some guys from my welcome week group on campus once and they were very quite.  I was a bit thrown but it turns out they are just shy)  But, the rules of the mountain are the exception.  Lots of people are out walking and it's ok to say hi and talk to total strangers on the mountain.  Nature bringing out the best of everyone's nature.

Hi Lisa and greetings from Adelaide Australia. Thanks for the chance to glimpse your Norwegian life and best wishes for your studies. My reason for this comment you are still wondering about? Perhaps your Dad mentioned my wife Gaye and I to you when he visited Bergen? We were lucky enough to share the beautiful Alsace countyside (and weather - sorry!)with him last September. So my journey through your blog to see his photos was a lovely and interesting trip. Kathrin Steyer is my 4th cousin and my Australian Fischer family only discovered our long-lost German cousins 12 years ago. My great great grandfather migrated from Germany in 1849 and I can empathise with you as you also visit places of significant family history in Norway as we do in Germany. I wonder if I will ever be able to save up enough money to visit Scandinavia one day??!!
Best wishes and thanks for your blog.

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very
techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to start.
Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress)
was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work
due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
