Needs a paint

September 25th, 2011

Not sure if I’ve posted a picture of this bridge before:

Holiday Camp

September 18th, 2011

I’ve been in Norway for a few days for our annual company conference thing. We stayed at this Butlins-esque convention centre on the coast about an hours drive from Oslo.

The chalets are very cute. Weather wasn’t great but at least it wasn’t -20°C like last time.
