Tour guide in Trondheim

October 30, 2016

Who was the jackass that came up with the idea of 5 workdays and only 2 days for weekend leaving us with only 7 days a week? On Fridays I am thinking “finally weekend” and then it is suddenly Sunday again and it is time to go to work the next day. Tomorrow will be my first day on the course that I am going to start on and I am exited to start.

Usually we are not as active as we have been this weekend but when we have a guest at our home we want to give them the best experience possible of our new city and some memories for life. Actually, we have not lived in Trondheim for more than 2 months and we felt a bit like tourists ourselves when we were walking around in our new city and showing him the different places to see today.

The area on the picture is called Bakklandet which is an area of Trondheim that Johan and I are really fan of. It is so cozy there with small cafeterias and small timber houses. Trondheim is focusing a lot on the environment and therefor you can see writings on the ground saying takk for at du går meaning thank you for walking and takk for at du sykler which means thank you for using you bicycle.

I really liked the picture below where you see a play cottage built in the trees. Play cottages are usually built ground and it is not very common to see them in trees.

Below you can see the famous Nidarosdomen which is an old cathedral in Trondheim built in the 11th century and it is 98 meters tall. I get the feeling of looking at a castle and it is pretty exiting to look at a building that old. We are looking forward to attend Christmas service there on Christmas eve.

The leafs have fallen from the trees now and the autumn is really here. Therefor it was quite tempting to play with the leafs today and have some fun hehe.

 

 

My father in law has not been there for 34 years and it was exiting for him to come back and see it after that many years. You get the feeling of a powerful place.  It is the traditional location for the consecration of the King of Norway. It is the northernmost medieval cathedral in the world. Quite cool!!

 

After many hours walking around in the city looking at all the historical places we went to a cafeteria to relax and having some conversations and plan where we should have our dinner. We all love sushi and we therefor decided to go to a famous sushi place in Trondheim. On our way to the sushi place we stopped to shoot some pictures at the brigde which has a beautiful view of Nidelven (the river going though Trondheim). It was amazing in the lights after dark and we walked by the promenade afterwards.

We are looking back on an incredible day and we hope you also have enjoyed yours.

Take care! ♥

    It’s pretty there, Roberta! I like the Cathedral. It’s sort of similar to Notre Dame.

    A kind “thank you” is in order to labor unions, who trimmed our work week back from “as many days as the boss says” combined with “as many hours as the boss wants” to the somewhat more humane five days and 40 hours. People often complain about unions these days but long before they became troubling bureaucracies of their own, they made our working lives better. I know you were just joking around but couldn’t resist! Trondheim looks very nice and now I want to visit. Kind regards 😁
