Land of midnight sun and trolls

I have been away visiting the Norwegian Fjords. Had a lovely time. The breathtaking beauty of the Fjords was awesome. So here are some pictures that I want to share with you. I loved the different trolls that were displayed in front of shops and in the shops. 
I couldn't possibly have brought home the large ones but settled on these tiny adorable guys:-)


To my delight I even found a delightful little illustrated storybook which even has a DVD included.
I think there will be a little troll doll coming up in the near future:-)





Mother Nature put up some spectacular shows for us. I could catch on camera only a fraction of it.















The Birksdal glacier




Visited the old Bergen houses . We were allowed to go into so e of them and one was a toy maker's house. I apologise for the bad quality of the pictures of the toy maker's house. The light was not good and most of the stuff was locked away in cabinets.



I think we used all modes of travel during the last ten days. We travelled by boat,rail, bus but had a fantastic time.
I will try and catch up with all the blogs this week. Hope your summer has been good too.

  1. Hi Shashi, I’ve called in a couple of times while you were away, then I went away, so am just catching up. What an amazing post, I love all your photos, especially the one of the rainbow and the one where it looks like the mountain is on fire. I would love to visit that toy maker’s house that is my idea of heaven. I also like your pretty book and the trolls, looking forward to seeing your new troll dolls! Have a super weekend, Barbara.
