Question by Bella Blast: What do you think about Norway?
Any thoughts about the typical norwegian?

I’m from Norway, and just wonder how the rest of the world really sees us.

Thanks for answering:D

I’m (kinda) back!

Lots of things going on at work these days. I am therefore not able to spend as much time on Flickr as I would have wanted. I will try and get through people’s streams as much as I can, but I will probably only have time in the afternoons.

I shot this in a small Nature Reserve on Andøya called Sørmela. A fantastic place that I can’t wait to visit in the summer. Low evening summer sun in this place must be brilliant.

This was just a quick comp I did, and one of the few exposures I bothered doing here. The light was disappearing fast, and not much foreground to work with. That combined with me having walked abt 2km with too much clothes on made me get some shots off quick and get back to the car. It was as much a recon mission for hot spots as it was for getting some shots.

I actually sold this shot to someone who has a summer house in this area, which is always nice. :-)

Hope you like it.

Question by Colin: Quick Travel Question for Norway?
I have Dual Citizenship U.S. and Filipino im about to leave for Norway next week from Manila the only question I have is do I use my U.S. passport upon entry to Norway or my Filipino passport?

Best answer:

Answer by GerdP
You use or U.S. passport upon entry; it enables a visa free stay of up to 90 days. You would have needed to apply for a visa in Manila if you plan to enter Norway on the regular Philippines passport.

One comment on “Q&A: What do you think about Norway?

  1. somewhat innadvendt, slow to make friends, slow to drop friends

    very democratic (including your views on dialect use)

    very open to freedom and equality (duh)

    a little naïve about countries with diverse populations and the problems we have — yes yes, I know lots of Pakistanis live in various parts of Norway, also Somalis, but are you really and truly accepting of them and their differences?

    What ever happened to the suggestion of banning prayers from Minarets?

    Dere nordmenn er nesten perfekte — men ikke helt!
