    Whoa! Such peace and tranquility….I could feel the calmness right away.

    This reminded me of my trip to Niagara Falls over at the America Fall – beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing Norway with us :D

    This was beautiful! I love the waterfall right in the middle of town.
    Happy 7th anniversary to both of you!
    May your love last your lifetime!

    What a neat thing to have a waterfall running through the town! We have a river in ours and our backyard goes right down to it but it’s not like a waterfall.
    I’m glad you spent such a nice day to celebrate your 7th! Congrats and may you be blessed with many more!
    We’ll try to send you some of our sun from Canada! (LOL since it just poured ALL day!)

    Happy Anniversary, Renny and Diane! May you enjoy many more together. :-)

    That waterfall is beautiful, and also the mirrored church. As for fall color, it will be at least a few weeks before we have much fall color here. The foliage is very late in changing to fall colors this year.

    That is one incredible Nokia mobile phone, Renny. It takes fabulous photos! And there are so many things in this post to “write home” about: your anniversary, the special lunch made just for the two of you, the return to a place you lived previously, the spectacular waterfall, the mirror church (and YOU in it!), the coins, the crowns, etc. I think I saw something like the crowns stamped into the rocks while on our cruise but I’m not sure where. Was it Norway? I’ll have to go back and look. But it’s all so soulful. Thanks.

    @Ginnie: Yes, I am quite happy about the richness in the experience too and just love to share stories like this with you, you know. I’m not sure where you might have seen it, but as long as I know, this is only in Kongsberg and far from the coastline as you where cruising. Please check and get back to me!

    @Lime: Thanks for the wishes. Glad you liked the story to and I agree, Kongsberg is fascinating and an important part of Norway’s history.

    @TravelItaly: I’m so agree with you and that’s why I love to visit your blog too, you know!

    Like yourself, I’ve been hunting for that perfect autumn foliage to snap a photo of. The weather is just so gloomy in Oslo and most of the trees have yet to change colors!

    That is an interesting structure for somewhere outside Oslo. :-) Thanks for this virtual tour!

    Oh! Wow! A maple tree.

    For some reason I thought they we indigenous only to North America.

    Happy Anniversary to you two!
    You were having my favorite meats.
    Prochuto and salami on rye! Ummmmm.
    I am a rye bread kinda gal.
    What is the stuff that looks like chocolate?
    The church is amazing. I guess we have to take for granted that mirrors of old are lined with silver.
    Only the good ones now a days are silver.

    I love this kind of history.

    I have to ask, is all of Norway this beautiful? Your pictures are always so captivating!

    @Mark: Yes, the fall is coming slowly this year. Glad you liked the tour!

    @Richard: Oh, no, there is a lot of maple trees in the northern Europe. Maple syrup is very popular too – I love it on pancakes.

    @ExpatTraveler: It was exciting – hope you’ll have the chance one day!

    @Nona: I’ve never seen a church like that and could not resist you know. Glad you liked the tour too and thank you so much for your good wishes – passed on to my wife too of course!

    @Tin-tin: Thanks for the good wishes my friend! The food made the whole scenery fussy you know.

    @Charles: Thanks my friend for your good wishes. Glad to hear you liked to hear more about Odd’s home town:-)

    @Lynn: Thanks for the good wishes! How great that we share the same bread taste and cold cuts then!
    The chocolate thing is cakes – my favourite, and wife knows of course :-)
    I don’t think there was any silver in the church – sorry.
    So glad you liked the story!

    @Jen: Thanks!! I’m flattered about the question and tempted to say yes, Norway is beautiful, but then again I’m kind of patriotic:-)
