My very good colleague and friend from Norway with his blog: TorAa Mirror, has a weekly event called Boats on Mondays. Its about time for me to contribute and show him some link love. My contribution this Monday will be a very special boat in which we both enjoyed paddling this summer when Tor and his wife visited at our vacation home in Sweden:


Both me and Tor posted about these adventures of course. So for those who want more details or for a faithful readers a flash back, click and read:

A-Team CruisersTalking about link love; my regular readers know I have the honor of being an A-Team Cruiser at Captain Lifecruisers Cyber Cruise. You can read more about Lifecruisers Archive here or find everything in the known universe about it on Technorati.

This coming Tuesday I have the pleasure of hosting the cruise and have invited my wife to guest blog and share one of her special experiences in the Norwegian mountains this summer. My faithful readers have read some of her adventures before and actually her posts about the same charming spot on top of Norway is one of this blog’s most visited:
-> Wild Mountains of Norway and On top of Norway’s mountains. So for those who likes to know how an American together with three girlfriends survive in the Norwegian wildness, stay tuned!

Todays Cyber Cruise stop: ->Edinburgh Castle, Scotland and ->Croydon, England

  13. I’ve only been kayaking once (last year) and I found it hard. And I was afraid of falling in! Ha!

    Well, I think kayak is harder than canoeing I think and why bother falling in :D

  14. I love boats and of course want to be out there too next year! We shall see.. Thanks for the support as always. I think today is just about the last day for voting but somehow I’m not so sure. It seems the voting is very flawed!

    Your welcome – I vote because I really like your pictures!
    It’s a lovely sunny morning here in Norway too today!

  15. I remember your nice holidays together with Tor and Anna and of course are waiting for Diane’s adventures in the mountains !

    I know you are a trustful reader Gattina – it’s always great to see you here!

  16. hi Renny
    looks like fun……if you ever come over to Australia…you and Diane must go canoeing in Lake Macquarie…..the biggest salt water lake in the Southern Hemisphere :)

    You know I would love to go back to Australia (was there in Perth, 10 years ago)!

  17. Then after you have visited Kim you should come to Victoria and visit our Gippsland Lakes – Spanning an area of 340km², the Lakes form the largest navigable network of inland waterways in Australia. I am just fuelling the New South Wales/Victoria rivalry here – they are two of Australia’s states whose inhabitants each claim theirs is the best :-)

    What a great invitation, not only from one but two lovely blog friends! I would love to go back to Australia and just love your nature

  18. Hi! I’m here from Captain’s Cruise blog and wanted to thank you for the tour!! Great photos!!!!
    Hootin’ Anni

    Always great to see fellow Cruisers – welcome back any time!

  19. I’m going to have to check out that Boats on Monday. You know I love canoing!

    Please do Tricia – we’ll love to have you on board!

  20. I thought I was going to meet Tor but got my months mixed up! We were here in Amsterdam at the end of August but NOT at the end of September. Boo Hoo. I so much want to meet both of you one of these days!!!

    Sorry you couldn’t make it this time then, but for sure: we all have to meet – the sooner the better!
