Oslo Impressions – Part 2

Standard

The city of Oslo has beautiful old buildings like the Parliament,

The University with an Aula

with paintings of Edvard Munch famous for his painting ‘The Scream

 

You can also visit the Rathus

a massive, dominant building at the harbour.

It took 19 years to build.

Its chimes you can hear every hour.

In this hall every year on 10th December the Nobel Prize is given out.

Part 3 coming soon.

All pictures taken by me.

…a day to enjoy travels …

I traveled North to Oslo for a short trip.

The first thing I saw in Oslo was the beautiful flowers everywhere in open spaces.

Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; 
they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
~ Luther Burbank ~

 

 

 

Specially now in Summer

the flowers are the most vibrant!

Enjoy them!

They really do make the Earth laugh!

Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in the future?
Candidate: I think I will still be using mirrors in the future.

 

 

A group at a MENSA (IQ 150+) meeting were having lunch at a local restaurant when one noticed that the salt shaker was filled with pepper and the pepper shaker was filled with salt.

After a lengthy discussion they determined that they could swap the contents to match the correct shakers. All they needed was a straw and an empty saucer.

They called over their waitress (IQ much less than 150) and pointed out their concerns. Without hesitation she switched the lids, said “problem solved”, and walked away from the now shocked and silenced Mensa table.

 

 

 

Have a fun day with lots of laughter!

….. a day to smell…..the world.

 

Wherever you go today

wherever you find a flower,

put your nose closer and smell the scent.

Soon you will notice that even different roses have varied scents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A feast for your nose today!

 

Live simple,

love well,

and take time 

to smell the flowers

along the way.

…a day to surprise myself.

I surprise myself and the world around me.

I do something no one expects me to do.

for example

I go dancing

I greet strangers with hello and a smile,

I put colourful clothes on which don’t really fit together.

I might be really quiet today as I am usually loud, or vice versa

It feels liberating to do something different for one day,

to get out of the ordinary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What did you do different today?

Today is …. #22

….. a day to do something ordinary but make it joyful

 

Many things in daily life are normal, and habit,

but with more attention they can turn into a little joy.

For example:

Put a fresh T-Shirt on – Smell and feel the freshness,

When you dry your hair – feel the warm air,

Wash your face – enjoy the water splashing on your skin.

 

 

 

Simple things can bring joy.
