Some summer holiday shots from Norway # part 8.

Reine is the administrative centre of Moskenes municipality, Norway. Its population (SSB 2005) is 342. It has been a commercial centre since 1743. Today tourism is important. In spite of its remote location thousands of people visit this neighborhood annually.

European route E10 passes through Reine. The largest weekly magazine in Norway (Allers) selected Reine as the most beautiful village in Norway in the late 1970s.








































































Sakrisøy is Lilliput among the fishing villages of the Lofoten Islands, yet it can still offer everything that is characteristic of a true fishing village - and more.

Jeg vil dit!! nå!! Lofoten MÅ bare oppleves for og kunne fatte hvordan fjell, hav og bebyggelse innvirker på en. Helt fantastisk...og jeg skal IKKE bøye meg i støvet....ble veldig slitsomt å få av seg alt støvet..hihihi
GOD HELG fortsatt!!

Randi said...

Usj, ryggen min ja...den har jeg vel blitt så vant med at jeg glemmer den. Men jeg har tatt meg selv i nakken å bestilt time til vår kjære familie lege. Hun vet vel råd ...håper jeg. Blir vel røntgen om hun ikke finner ut hva den kan være. Vi får vel se hva som kommer hender. Oppdatering kommer i neste kapittel.;-))

John: No wonder it was voted the most beautiful town. You have shown us wonders right before our eyes of a stunning view of the town. How I love your Norway through your camera.

I am getting homesick when I see your magnificent series of photos! I am Dutch, so the word homesick is not the proper word, but I remember all my holidays in Norway: they were so great!!

Congratulations on your award Louis gave you! You deserve it a hundred times!!
