A Troll’s journey in Nor Way:
When I was there to vote myself, I found a blog entry that caught my eye – something quite exclusively Norwegian (see the photo to the left!); A Troll’s journey! It’s Matt Jones from Bristol, UK, who explains his ultimate dream this way: “In Nordic Folklore the Troll has long been a legendary figure. Here I imagine a troll journey from the north through landscape inspire by the Nordic myth – back to his family in the south”.
Even I, who are brought up with Trolls and have learned how to deal with them, could not resist identifying with Matt’s dream. If you like to support him or at least are curious about this; click to read his post: “Send me to Norway!”.
Please don’t confuse this event with our Oslo Blog Gathering 2010, where my blog friends from all over the world will meet for a special gathering. There you will meet VisitOSLO at our information stand which will give the participants good advice on the local area and activities. Be sure to register if you haven’t already and join the fun!
