My 10-day Trip to Northern Europe (1)


From 20 / 7 / 2008 to 29 / 7 / 2008, I joined a tour to Northern Europe organized by Hong Thai Travel Services Ltd. and visited Copenhagen, Oslo, Bergen, Fjord, Briksdal Glacier, Stockholm and Helsinki. The scenery was so breathtaking that I did have a great time. I also looked for the cinemas there and took some photos. I am going to share some photos with you.

To my surprise, one of our tour mates, Tung, listens to our online radio show from time to time. What a coincidence!!! He has never left a message in our blog or sent us any emails. He knew I was Kenji on the last day… gosh… What a pity!!! Anyway, many thanks to Tung for giving us some advice and supporting us. The experience of meeting a member of our audience was unforgettable as I always feel it is unlikely for us to meet in Hong Kong, not to mention the Northern Europe!!! ^0^

Tired but Happy! Enjoy the photos!

Copenhagen - The wooden houses are colorful!!!

Sunrise in Oslo - Very cold, but peaceful and hopeful!

Old Town in the second largest city of Norway, Bergen

New Town in Norway

Fjord - I was mesmerized by the natural wonders!

Norway - The longest tunnel in the world - it takes about 30 mins to get out of the tunnel and it is dimly lit. We were in the middle of the tunnel, a GREEN area in which cars can stop for a while.

  1. Hello Kenji,
    Thank you very much for introducing me.
    Thanks also for your efforts in making the movie reviews.
    Your movie reviews are always inspiring & interesting.
    BTW, the date of the trip should be 7/20 to 7/29.

    [版主回覆07/30/2008 23:06:00]GOOD!!! I think Sweden and Norway are better than Finland. However, I don't know when I can see the northern light.

  3. One more piece of information to add: Fjord and the wooden houses in Bergen are on the UNESCO's World Heritage List. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list

  6. 若我有機會去,其實都唔會選擇跟團,雖然跟團好,幫你安排哂所有行程,不過我都係覺得自己四圍去,感覺自由d
    [版主回覆07/31/2008 22:39:00]I lose direction easily and I have no time to plan the trip. What's more, if I go by myself, the cost will be...

  7. AMAZING ...
    [版主回覆08/01/2008 01:11:00]MESMERIZING ...

  8. 我從大阪凱旋而歸,返來囉,很有「家」的感覺。 你的blog轉了wallpaper喎,比起之前漂亮多了,這種wallpaper如何設計的?
    你提及的北歐地方名稱,有些我查唔到字典。看在你唔識打中文的份上,叫IAN教下我得唔得呢? 我勁想去歐洲呀....
    [版主回覆08/01/2008 23:28:00]
    WELCOME BACK! The new wallpaper is actually a photo. I took the photo in a cinema in Norway. The countries I visited include Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland... You may ignore the names of the cities. I have been to 大阪 once... post more pictures please.

  9. 平有平玩啫 我都係路痴,船到橋頭自然直,我上年去意大利,唔記得帶本guide book,去到任何地方,望住一抽意大利文,我都唔知寫咩,諗住搵巴士搭,又係唔識睇,唔知d巴士去邊樹,坐的士?太貴,所以都係用腳行去目的地,但一樣去到好多地方,要行,點都行得到 最多行到腳痛啫
    [版主回覆08/02/2008 01:01:00]What a great adventure!!! Perhaps I should try to go to a place by myself, if I have time to prepare for the trip and money. I can focus on one or two particular cities in a week... perhaps... ^^

  10. What's r Big Big Surprised, first time see your blog is not talking abut movies, haha! All Pics are beautiful, so admire u r!
    [版主回覆08/02/2008 21:54:00]Right... not so related to movies except the pictures taken in the cinemas there. My friends also love the photos a lot. YEAH!!!

  11. 你咁後生其實應該要試下"自由行"啦!我都無時間安排行程嫁!我都係臨時臨急拎假去,一諗到大約想去邊,就去書局買guide book睇囉!响坐地鐵呀、食午飯時間睇,大約知道可以或好想去邊樹玩,咪打去旅行社book機票囉!我都係用咗兩個星期去度個行程,跟住就出發嘞!話明自由行嘛!我無特別度去邊嫁,橫掂全部都未去過,個個地方都想去嫁啦!我仲只有十二日時間玩,邊得嚟去得哂呀!所以都無理咁多,去到先算 我份人係咁,無計劃,咁會開心好多,旅行嘛!要輕鬆既
    [版主回覆08/03/2008 02:53:00]I am different from you this time. I tend to visit some spots which can represent that country in a short period of time and want to save money and time. BUT next time, when I go to Norway again, I will go to some remote cities BY MYSELF. ^^ (Hopefully I won't lose my way, or I have to host Move Thee Reviews in Norway HAHA!!!)

  12. It seems that you guys love the new background. Many THANKS to Tung for his advice.

  13. So admire all teachers like u, long long summer vacation, that i do not hv long long long time ago lu!
    Eventually, u still can't 'quite' from such things related to movies nai, an 100% enthusiastic movie lover, haha!
    [版主回覆08/04/2008 13:44:00]One of the reasons why I want to be a teacher. I think it is important to take a rest sometimes!!! It seems that teachers do have more holidays than others, though the tour fee will be higher during the summer holidays.

  14. 北歐風景好靚
    [版主回覆08/06/2008 15:10:00]One of the best few places in the earth in my opinion. Norway and Sweden are fabulous.

  15. Amazing! I visited the U.S.A. this summer and Wall.E was on screen then.
    [版主回覆08/08/2008 22:56:00]When I visited the Northern Europe, Kung Fu Panda and The Dark Knight can be seen everywhere.

  16. 很美麗的風景。 外國一直都讓人感覺很舒服、很乾淨。 真希望有一天能親自體驗那裏的空氣。 比起美洲,我更想旅遊歐洲。
    [版主回覆08/12/2008 18:45:00]Europe is better than USA in a number of ways !!! ^^

  17. 令人嚮往………
    [版主回覆08/14/2008 23:30:00]Exactly... the word in my unconsciousness!!! Fairy Tale!!! I really enjoyed myself there.

  18. wow, beautiful scenes + gd weather of northern europe.........what else can u expect more!!!!
