Norway Street View 6


Hi friends.  It’s unlikely that you noticed Google recently published brand new Street View imagery for Norway! So, this means that I can give you a free tour of the city.  Keep in mind that its still winter over hear. It’d be nice if Google had a “Convert to black & white” function to make the imagery more realistic for February. But it does give me some optimism about this summer. Enjoy!

My apartment (it’s the white building in the center of view)

DNV Campus
The DNV campus didn’t receive full coverage, but here’s a picture of the security gate, which was probably responsible for the lack of coverage. I’m kinda sad about this because the campus is absolutely gorgeous. The land was given to DNV for free on the grounds that it would be kept as a public park. Doesn’t it look nice?

Vigelandsparken
From Wikipedia, “The park covers 80 acres (320,000 m2) and features 212 bronze and granite sculptures created by Gustav Vigeland. Vigeland personally sculpted every figure out of clay and individual craftsmen were contracted to fabricate the pieces into what they are today. These works of art reside along an 850 meter-long axis divided into six sections: The Main Gate, The Bridge, The Children’s Playground, The Fountain, The Monolith Plateau and the Wheel of Life.” And oh yeah, they’re all nude. This is Norway.

Nobel Peace Prize
If you have romantic notions of the Noble Peace Prize, then you may not want to look at this StreetView. Maybe looks can be deceiving?

Norwegian Roadside
Here’s just a random photo from the Norwegian country-side on the highway from Oslo to Bergen. I really can’t wait for the snow to melt!

    Man, just look at that trail right by the road in that Norwegian Country-side shot. You’re going to have so much fun! Sounds like you already are though. I can’t imagine your thought process. I mean, after reading your grocery shopping it just sounds like you need to think so much harder about the things we take for granted.

I mean, after reading your grocery shopping it just sounds like you need to think so much harder about the things we take for granted as being second nature. Tahnk goodness for helpful people.
