I am now sitting at hotel room in Vienne (after a nice meal outdoor with my family) just south of Lyon. Have been driving trough Bourgogne and Cotê d'Or today (which was actually glowing in the sun set). Unfortunately we did not stop in Lyon, but I found some pictures on my computer from last time we were there. Tomorrow our journey continues and hopefully we will end up by the Med Sea.

.... it seems and feels like the autumn has finally arrived Luxembourg. I am glad that I served my dinner-guests a warmering casserole yesterday, instead of leaning on the weather and organized a bbq. But anyway, shall not complain, packing my bag while speaking and tomorrow we're heading south....

Had my last visit this season at my parents summerhouse today. Could see that the nature is slowly turning in to autumn and the summer is almost over. Sad to think about that it is a year to next time we will spend some time by the Norwegian fjords. Tomorrow we`ll take the plane back to Lux, but first I will spend the evening with the girls .....

Yesterday we took a promenade from Haraldstøtta to Kvalsvik. Haraldstøtta is the grave of the Viking, Harald Hårfagre, who was the King that gathered the Norwegian counties to one kingdom, and was entombed here in 933. From this graveyard you can follow a path a long the coastline till you come to Kvalsvik which is a nice bathing facilities direct to the North Sea (and therefor very cold, brrr)

Last Wednesday till Sunday, the International Jazz Festival Sildajazz (sild=herring) was held for the 23rd time in Haugesund, our hometown in Norway. Lovely weather, lots of people, jazzbands all over town, parades and nice boats in the channel, it was truly a nice experience.

We have spent the last week at Reksteren which is a small island south of Bergen, Norway. We are lucky that my parents in law have this summerhouse, which has been in the family for many generations. When the weather is on our side it is truly a small piece of paradise.

We have had some nice days at my parents summerhouse in the fjords with family and friends. The weather has not been to bad so we could go out with the little boat with son as a captain. But now we are in town for some urbanic lifestyle before we head north to my parents in law summerhouse...
