midnight sun – Ålesund, Norway…

La ville d’Ålesund est un port, situé à environ 230 kms au nord-est de Bergen, connue pour son architecture “Art Nouveau” qui m’a rappelé celle de Miami Beach, Florida… 🙂 Elle est entourée de fjords et des Alpes de Sunnmøre.

    • I’ve been to Norway twice and I’ve fallen in love with it… ❤ even though you've been an Aussie for several generations, your ancestors have come from "old Europe"n your roots, origins and identity are European… 🙂

  4. Norvegia… frumoase locuri, Melanie! ❤

  5. Bellissime immagini! 🙂 Ciao! .marta

  7. Thanks, Melanie for sharing these great photos. The buildings are so pretty and well kept and everything is so clean. Not a stitch of litter. The poem was beautiful. 🙂

    • you’re very welcome, Carol… I do understand your point about the Norwegian neatness compared to other countries… 😉 I’ve been to Norway and Iceland twice and I can confirm it’s clean everywhere… 🙂

      you certainly know Prévert is a huge poet… I’ve tried to translate his poem as accurately as possible. 🙂 Thanx for stopping by, I’m always glad and honored by your visit(s)… ❤

  8. Thank you so much for taking me on a trip back to my home country! 🙂 I was missing it today! 🙂

    • you’re very welcome, Line… ❤ I love and I often miss Norway, too! I do wonder how can you "resist" to live so far-away from your lovely homeland and in a completely different country?… my very best, stay healthy, "cool" and optimistic! ❤
