MANY, MANY!!!!!! years ago, I used to have an online Bavarian girlfriend from/in Augsburg...she had/has kinfolk in Norge (someone in her family had married either a Norseman or Norsewoman...I forget the details) and used to take vacations in Norge because of it. One time while vacationing there, she mailed me the below postcard featuring various pictures/scenes from the land, which I was utterly elated to recieve from her!!! :) I've attached it is for everyone's viewing pleasure, open it up to see it, below are the places whence the scenes (enumerated matching the postcard) come :) --v

Nordkapp.
The Midnight Sun.
Stamsund.
Nordfjord.
Heddal Stavechurch.
Briksdalen.
Geiranger.
Brekkestø.

Here are my two favorites from it (#s 4 & 5):

This really reminds me how lucky I am to be living in such a beautiful country. Come spring, I think I´ll take a trip to Western Norway (Bergen) to visit family. The route across the Hardangervidda and down to the fjords on the western side is absolutely breathtaking. When the sun is shining and the water from the glaciers give the rivers a bright turqoise colour, it´s green and lush everywhere, and the sky is blue, Norway is heaven on earth.

I couldn't agree more. Norway is the most beutiful country there is. I've been travelling all around Norway, and know people all around in different places. And I have told everybody I know that the most breathtaking areas in Norway is:
- The western coast, mountains and fiords closeup and all these glaciers, and more.
- The midnorthern coast, during the summer we have the midnight sun and mountains as well. There they also have Norways 2nd. largest glacier.

I do have pictures of all this, but I haven't scanned them yet, so therefor I can't show them to you, but I can tell you that this nature is the most beautiful you could ever see.

But I do agree that these postcards is nice as well.

I forgot to mention that I've been in those places that +Suomut+ Mentioned. I've also seen The midnight sun and Heddal Stavechurch.
But I also have to tell you about the Viking museum in Lofoten. That is something I'll never ever going to forget. It is built like a vikingship turned upside down. And has many stories to tell. And according to that, Lofoten is really gorgeus during the summer with the midnight sun, the fiords and the whaletrips you can take. And also you can see the high mountains and see close at hand.

:viking3: Please stop making me jealous people.
I live in Australia..an arid dry, part tropical, sometimes beautiful, wasteland..The beaches are our asset....but not my idea of paradise.

Since I was a child to adulthood..I dreamed of snow capped mountain tops, pine forests & frozen lakes to skate on. Thatched roofs and welcoming beers. :viking3:
Wholesome faces, hot food and good looking men. :laugh:

But most of all..the cold weather, the forests and the ice.

I hate winter, usually it use to be 2 meters of snow and -30C this time of year here...now it's no snow and -2C...we even had +6C few days ago...

If that is what you want, then Sweden and Norway is probably the best place to go to during november-june. Here in Norway, you can actually take a skitrip on one of the glaciers we have on the west coast. It is called Jostedalsbreen/Jostedalsglacier. Or perhaps you want to go downhill, then you can go to our 3rd biggest glacier, Folgefonna/Folgefonni.This you can do during the summer.

You should move to Canada then.

But only on the west coast will you find snow capped mountains. Mont Royal and a few ancient volcanoes in the Eastern Townships of Quebec don't count.

Try Pittsburgh, the sun never shines here, it always rains (even in the summer) or snows. And the landscape is dominated by hills, trees, and rivers. I've been told it's alot like some parts of Germany.

Yes, but as beautiful as they are, they are more like rolling hills when compared to the Rockies.
