Pops is visiting

My father is visiting for a couple of weeks and since I didn´t have a lot of work these days, Sam and I got to be tourists, too. Today we went to the Akershus Fortress, where I´d only been a couple of times before, but which remains a “hidden gem” by the harbor. It´s from medieval times and they still use most of the buildings housing museums, the National Defense Guard, military offices and this sort of things. The cobblestone alleys and the low houses make you feel like you´re traveling back in time. If only there hadn´t been this many cars parked around!

For a Samoyed, it´s never too early in the year for a bath. Especially if there are some geese around worth chasing! 😉

I´d ordered some bruschetta thinking they´d be cute and small, but these were huge and not particularly tasty, either. My father wouldn´t have any since he didn´t feel like digging in without washing his hands. Talk about spontaneity! 😉

Stay tuned for more adventures in the days to come!
