By: Toni Toni Wed, 21 Nov 2007 17:00:48 +0000 I admire you for your courage to finally leave that jealous guy after 26 years!! Sometimes we get so used to the not so normal things in life that we get a bit scared to get away from it and try newer things. I think you deserve Mr. Lifecruiser after all those years. I hope you will get to travel more soon but just the blog links help us really to be travel more through the eyes of the other people :)

I love travelling and have been travelling almost every few months… mostly business trips. And it’s mostly in Asia. I am dying to go to Europe to meet my blogger friends.

Not the least bit envious though of the 26 years with as another commenter called vinegar piss – I would have to agree with that name for him! Such a shame to have lost all that time when you could have been traveling along with someone who enjoys things like that, living life to the fullest!
I’ve never been overseas and if I should ever hit the lottery (only way I’ll ever get enough money to travel -lol), the first place I want to see is Sweden particularly the Dahlsland area as that is the land of my ancestors. Better go buy some lottery tickets now if I want that dream to ever come true though, huh?

With the same man since I’m 20 years old and love travel! But of course with children now we have other priorities like their student, driving licence (very expensive in France). Hé! Hé! I see Le Beaujolais nouveau is arrived in Sweden! If you taste it you ‘ll can do a wish!!!

By: TorAa TorAa Tue, 20 Nov 2007 18:00:28 +0000 Thank you for so honestly sharing your life with your readers.

I think I was a bit luckier, as my mama had 7 uncles in USA, 2 cousins in Denmark and my Grandpa, he was from Stockholm (before his family moved to Drammen, Norway).
We did not have a car. Import regulations stopped even the thought of it. Only people that needed a car due to their work, was alloved to buy one. One of of my Uncles was a Car seller, and i drove us all over within a couple of hours from Oslo, on Roads we nicknamed cattle roads. They were awful. But that how it was, we did not know better – haha.

My first trip abroad was when I was 2. My mother and I took the bus to my grandma, and from her we walked (not me – I had my “sportswagon” to sit in), down to the Copenhaguen ship. It was my mothers cousins we did visit. They had food in Denmark just post WW 2. We had next to nothing. It was restrictions on everything.

Next time I went abroad was to Sweden – Arvika – by train. I was 7. My younger brother was placed at a summerhome for kids – while I went with my mother and father – bringing our bikes with us. We had family in Arvika, and they let us have their summerhouse at Glafsfjorden for a week. Then they drove us up to Selma Lagerlöfs “castle” with a view of Sunnefjord-lake.

My parents were very clever to travel, in spite they were poor too. By bus and train and ships. And we, the cousins, stayed at what is now our Summerhome, with my pa’s parents.

First time really abroad – to a country with a very different language – in 1964 – to France, one month “youth working”-camp just North of Grenoble.
Since then, I’ve been abroad – outside Scandinavia – every single year. Except this year (so far)- only some days in Nice, a Weekend in Amsterdam – a long weekend in Florida.. *giggles*
My x-wife also loved to travel.
And Anna, you know..
That’s why my kids are suffering from travellics.

What really concerns me, is the fact you have not even been able to visit two blog friends in Oslo. (we know about all the other aspects…)
Anna and I have a wish for you both:
A Christmas/New Year in Spain or Tunisia – at least a place good for your Health.

ps. Have written a new post – but must load up pictures. This post needs pictures. It’s very different from my other stories from Miami Beach and Florida.

gosh. this was long as 3 single posts. Give me a kick in the ass.

Great post!

By: Gattina Gattina Tue, 20 Nov 2007 14:59:04 +0000 I am scandalized ! Staying with a “piss vinaigre” (vinegar) that’s how the French speaking people call such a person, for 26 years has nothing to do with loyalty ! You were just loosing your time. It’s a pity that you woke up so late ! But better you woke up late then sleeping for another 26 years lol ! At least now you have the lucky lify you earn !
In my childhood nobody had a car or telephone neither and mothers had to stay home, we even had no “whole day schools” but only in the mornings the afternoons are off school so what to do with children ? Mothers had to stay home, no choice. And unfortunately in Germany it hasn’t changed a lot. School is still half day and daycares are very rare and not enough. It is a retarded country for women ! When I think that when I started working in Belgium in 1963 daycares already existed and most of the women worked. Our accountant (a woman) had 3 children and worked the whole day !
Tomorrow I will publish a first little post about Egypt, a whirling dervish whom I filmed during a show. It is very nice and if the cruisers could come over they would have something very special to see. It is amazing how these guys whirl around for at least 20 min without falling ! (my videos last only 4 and 1 min).
I will now start to put the pictures together to welcome the cruise in a (hopefully) short time ! I tell you when I am ready !
