    The third picture shows the silhouette of a mysterious woman. Is there a story waiting to be told?

    It doesn't matter as long as your tummy was filled. This trip, though short, come across as very memorable. How much $$$ would one have to allocate for a trip like this? I feel like going but afraid it may cause a cash flow problem!

    Watching aurora lights at the Nordic certainly is an unique experience.

    I plan to watch these magnificent northern lights when the kid is away for studies in a few years time. Spend 2-3 weeks on a cruise that sail around Scandinavian waters and watch the lights from the deck...

    Scandinavia is more for travellers who like outdoor, who like to go to the lake and countryside on summer. It is quite boring in cold seasons. I went to Helsinki during my younger days, will try to find some old photos of this cold north city..

    Can't remember the story behind that sculpture. But the tour guide said something about touching the statue at a particular will bring good fortune.

    More of the history is found here http://www.vigeland.museum.no/en/vigeland-park/bridge
