On October 27, as a member of the 4-H Genealogy project I went to the de Young Museum to see the exhibit “Beautiful Data”. When we arrived, the exhibit was closed and we thought it would open later, so we went to have lunch and see some of the other exhibits in the museum. At […]

To Copenhagen Breakfast today was very busy, probably because we got up later than we did the other day. Svetlana and Vivian were not there so we still had to come back for a second breakfast so we could talk about when we were leaving for Copenhagen. Unlike the bus coming to Billund, which came […]

Skagen It was hard to sleep last night because the thumping of the engine was really loud and annoying. When we did finally get to port, we arrived early, but were not let off the boat early because the people on land were not there. The town where we moored is called Frederickshavn, it is […]

Museums, Museums, and More Museums I don’t actually remembered what I had for breakfast because it was probably the same as every other breakfast that I had. We had gotten a bus pass last night, so we had free access to all the buses. We also got an Oslo City Pass which would let us […]

Vatnajökull Today was a cold and blustery day. Well, up in the mountains at least. We started the day in the south and ended the day in the east. We mostly traveled but we did stop a lot to look at signs and glaciers, but there were two big stops of the day. One of […]

Icelandic Horses Today was a horse day. We went on a tour around the mountains of Iceland – which, are not really mountains, but dormant volcanoes – on Icelandic Horses. I stress the Icelandic horses part because there is only one breed of horse on all of Iceland, the Icelandic one. The reason there is […]
