England, Wales, Norway...the photos so far

hey all,

well as you probably know, since August I have been in Europe travelling, studying, travelling...you get the idea. I've been sending my film back to the States to my parents to have developed and put on Snapfish, so since I have some time on a computer right now, I thought I'd post some of them here. Unfortunately, they are kinda small and I am not real happy with the developing job but what can you do? So here goes.

The view from Trafalgar Square, London.


Children playing in the fountains at Trafalgar. There was some sort of a peace concert going on while I was there and it was interesting to mingle with all the people.




Pidgeons can make any dignified statue look a bit silly... hehe


A series of Big Ben pics. Yeah touristy, I know, but it's really a beautiful landmark...I couldn't stop looking at it.

one of the big highlights of my London stay was getting a standing-room ticket at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and seeing a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Wasn't allowed to take photos during the performance, but here is what the place looks like without the actors.









The Tate Modern


that millenium thingy that i forget the name of


gotta love the Tube

moving from London to the English countryside...these were taken near the border of Wales at this really pretty outdoor park/reserve, an area that the legendary King Arthur supposedly used to hang out in.

Yeah, the Big Ben is touristy, yet so nice to look at...as well as the Houses of Parliament. They look like one big painting.

being in Holland at the moment, I have noticed that the words can be a bit long and tricky, but it is NOTHING like what I saw in Wales. Check it out!










On my last day in England, I had a few hours to kill in London before catching my plane to Oslo, Norway so I called up Anthony (yes, our very own FYM mod Anthony) and we went out for lunch and a bit of sightseeing in Greenwich. Lovely area. And he's a great guy to hang with too. awwww.

The Cutty Sark


dorky tourist pic of me on the Prime Meridian (it's all Anthony's fault, he made me do it). now I've straddled that line and the Equator in my life. cool.




lol, verrrry funny.

Hello,

Very nice pictures Sula! That Shakespeare Globe Theatre certainly looks very nice. So, when are we going to see the beautiful (?) spots of the Netherlands?

C ya!

Marty

P.S. Have fun on your trip to Berlin (and Prague, and Vienna) and say hi to Vorsprung from me.

I just had to take a pic of this...it just makes me laugh every time. I know that technically "the way out" makes sense...but it always makes me think of some California surfer dude goin' "way ouuuut, duuuuuude!"



and speaking of craziness....here is a pic of the crazy interference gang in london. l to r: sula, dougal, AcrobatMan, and Anthony.



mandababe, i wish you had been there at the Globe as well. The show was excellent! And one of the guys had the sexiest scottish accent... *stops self*

oh and popmartijn, I don't know exactly when the Dutch piccies will be developed and up, but one can only hope they won't take too long. And that they won't break the computer. I'll say hi to Vorsprung tonite!

and on to Norway. Morning in Oslo after arriving late, getting a ride into the city with someone I had just met on the airplane, and staying up into the wee hours of the night talking and catching up with one of my Norwegian friends from college.

hmmm, dunno how it happens that my friend Odd (no really, that IS his name) manages to look so good after so little sleep and I look like a zombie. oh well.



The next day in Jorpeland with other college friends.



it was quite hot so we went swimming in this lovely river. ahhh nature.


On the ferry to Stavanger...


My friend Asbjorn in front of his house. Yep, the picture is skewed...to line up with the seriously STEEP street. lol.


In the tiny farm village near Bergen where another friend of mine (an American this time) was getting married to his Norwegian girlfriend. I got a healthy dose of old-fashioned Scandanavian hospitality while staying with her relatives.
