This is also one of the photos from last year. It is very safe here in Norway: people do not lock their houses, do not lock their cars, do not lock their bikes. The only thing they lock are the rubbish bins, so that they are not carried away by the strong wind.
This is stockfish drying on wooden racks in Honnigsvåg. It is usually cod and it takes 2-3 months to dry it. It is possible to buy it in supermarkets in small plastic bags. The taste and the smell is pretty intense.
This is North Cape seen from Kirkeporten (Skarsvåg). It was windy, cold and it was raining like hell, but I really enjoyed the hike (it's not really far, but it is not just next to the road either). You can also see the characteristical North Cape Horn.
This is our local pub, Bryggeria. On Saturday nights it is usually quite full. What I really like about it is that you are not allowed to smoke there. This law was introduced in Norway some time ago and I have to say that it feels great when you don't stink after coming back and when you can actually breathe in the pub.
This is a polar bear in Hammerfest. It is standing with its back directed to the city. People say it is because the artist wasn't paid enough and got angry. Hammerfest is the northernmost city of Europe on the mainland.
This is a puffin flying somewhere near the Gjesværstappan which is a group of islands not far from Honningsvåg and not far from Magerøya island. There is about 1 million of them spending the summer here. For wintertime they go to the north. They come back every year on 14.04., approximately at the same time of the day, even in the leap year!
