Det er noe folk generelt må ta inn over seg: Det er mange, mange år siden menneskeheten sagde mer
enn 50% gjennom den grenen vi selv sitter på. Da blir denne diskusjonen noe underlig..!!! https://www.nrk.no/dokumentar/xl/tograderstvilen-1.13163649
La oss nyte det mens vi kan, ha en gjevandes dag

Last Thursday, a week ago, we moved the camper from Øvre Årdal to Hålimo and got it beside the wooden platform which will be the base for the tent to come up, attached to the camper.
We had to wriggle it back and forth by the car but finally it was in place. A few cm still to be adjusted but that will come later.
We spent the week end here and were practically alone on the camping site, that
Had very very good weather, considering the weather forecast that wasn't very good.
We enjoyed ourselves immensely and came to the conclusion that we would never regret having done this. Hopefully the camper will be situated here for the years to come.
I can't show you any photos yet due to the fact the resolution on the camera is set to high, apparently. Have to ask One.com about that but they've got some issues at the moment so I can't get in touch with them on their support chat. So you will have to do with the two photos from my previous post.
That's all for now, have a great day

Hi there all
I've managed to delete all of the photos on my web site, some are back but give me a couple of days and it will be back to normal.
On my start page the text: Home & Menu has for some mysterious reason disappeared but it still works, just use the pointed finger above My Job.
We are both a little exited here, on Thursday we are going to move our camper to a permanent spot with this view:
More photos will be added over the week end.
I have made a new update on my Seiko "Turtle" (Watches Page) even though the photos are still gone.
A good day to you all

On July 21th, at 10:30 pm we put ourselves in the car and headed for Gardermoen Airport , driving through the night. Arriving at 3:30 am at Dalen Parking. Apollo had recommended us to be there 3 hors in advance due to possible queues through the security check. It went smoothly ant the flight took off on time. Great flying weather and we touched down on Burgas Airport on schedule. Not up to speed there, though, it took an hour to get our luggage, coming off the plane. Finally, after half an hour transfer, we reached the Perun Hotel. A rather big hotel room presented it self in light pleasant colors. And, of course, a balcony with ocean view:
After unpacking we went for a stroll to see what we could remember after 7 years since our last visit here. More restaurants and souvenir stalls for sure but all in all about the same.
We sort of got into a daily routine. Either breakfast at the hotel, included, or at our balcony. There where free loungers and parasols in the pool area with only 35 m. to walk for an ocean swim. If you wanted the same at the actual beach it would cost you NOK 150,- a day. Not worth the money we thought. We normally spent aprox. 5 hours daily in the pool area. The temperatures during our stay kept itself between 28-32 degrees Celsius.
At least once, often twice during the day/evening we visited Cafe Kris, a very local bar that became "our" bar on the main shopping street. Very few of the tourist sat down on this place which suited us perfectly. They kept their prices very low compered to their competitors. As an example: Two coffee and two of the local brandies, Pliska, amounted to NOK 23,- The Pliska was very good indeed.
Then there is Nessebar Old Town, a maze of narrow streets, most of them filled with shops and restaurants. Among them a number of high quality jewelers and fur shops. Also some very old ruins. A place well worth visiting!
It is hard to choose wrong when it comes to food in Bulgaria. One of the local dishes we tried was called Kavarama, made with either chicken or pork, we chose the pork version. Made like a stew which included potatoes. Unbelievably tasty!
Two weeks went very quickly and it was time to put ourselves on the plane heading back to Gardermoen Airport and finally Øvre Årdal.
We had a great vacation but having said that; also very good to be bake home :-)
Some photos at the Gallery album Bulgaria 2016, more will be added later.
