After four years in service my old Hyundai (1999 Elantra) had to be sent to the wrecking yard due to not passing the biennial vehicle inspection (called “EU kontroll” here in Norway). It didn’t come as much of a surprise, but it was still a little sad to see my Hyundai go to car heaven…

I initially thought the process of finding a new car before christmas would be hell, but I was really lucky and got myself a nice Volkswagen Golf, 2001 model, and it’s in pretty good shape. Vanja and I had our first road trip with it yesterday. We went to a place called Egersund, which is approx. a 2 hour drive from Stavanger where we live. Egersund is a nice little place, and you get to see some of that beautiful norwegian nature on the way. Here’s a few photos:

Not much snow, but the fog made me stop and take some photos of the beautiful landscape.

I finally made a photo book dedicated to Disneyland Paris, since we visit the place every time we’re in Paris. Some of the photos are from our first trip, which was from 4th June – 14th June 2012 (in time for their 20th anniversary) up until our latest trip, which was from 02 October – 10th October this year (in time for their 25th anniversary and Halloween season).

It was hard as hell to choose just a few photos from my collection (I’ve taken hundreds of photos of the place), but after a lot of picking a choosing I was finally able to put it together and finish it.

We came home this week from one of our yearly trips to Paris, and this time we visited “Le Jardin du Luxembourg”, the Luxembourg Garden. Here’s some photos:
