I find instructional illustrations very interesting and more often than not, a bit humorous.
I got a chuckle out of the moving walkway signs at the München airport. To me it says is you are cool, stand to the right. If not, stand to the left.
Also, if you have eneven lengthed legs, stand to the left.
Catch the illustration on the left as well.
I think everyone around the world knows that Germans love beer.
If you are ever at München, you will find the gift store filled with beer steins. This was only one side of the store mind you.
I spot a boot stein, wonder if they have the boot mug?
Here are some photos from my layover at München (Munich). I flew a regional carrier for Lufthansa and then Lufthansa back to Chicago. I was somewhat surprised about the free beer and wine service even from the regional – I guess it is Germany after all.
Nice to stop here instead of Frankfurt, just because it is smaller and not such a hassle to get from one terminal to another. But, security was busy as they had checks right at the gate and thankfully I got there ahead of the big rush which actually caused about a 30 minute delay for departure.
Our room for New Years had a great view overlooking the Royal Palace, Oslo.
In the far background you can even see the lights outlining a cruise ship.
A cold night in overlooking Trosterud on the outside of Oslo. In the background near the top of the other side of the valley is a ski hill to the right and a ski jump to the left.
The cold explains why the picture is a bit blurry.
Another shot of the palace. You can view some of my older posts to see the change of seasons.
I am not sure Karl XIV Johan would be too keen on the fact they pile all the snow at his feet.
Remember the pictures I posted of the royal palace from the summer? No? That’s okay.
I liked to think warmly of those as I was walking by during the winter. Seemed to be extra cold with extra snow.
Yes, the guards even stand pretty much motionless in the winter as well.
When I first arrived in Oslo it was actually pretty warm.
It also helps that they put under pavement heating for the sidewalks, although that didn’t seem to help so much when all the snow really started falling.
I will be catching up on some posts since I forgot to bring my USB cable for my digi.
To start, let me introduce you to Julebrus. What is Julebrus you ask? It is a Norwegian holiday softdrink, in this case owned by The Coca-cola Company.
It was actually pretty good and a very suitable for the time of year. Cool festive logo as well.
I saw this interesting Twilight display inside the Deichmanske Bibliotek. It was for Twilight (hopefully you know what I am referring to) series and they had on display a wide range of books in various languages.
Every language except English.
At least books like these and Harry Potter are getting kids and adults reading.
