Winter Lights in Bergen, Norway

My Germany-based cousin Wolfgang occasionally travels to his second residence in Norway, and he has just sent me this photo of lighted homes along the waterfront in Bergen.

Bergen, Norway

I’ve never been to Norway, and as my days of armchair-traveling become more and more attractive with each passing COVID year, I am content just looking at images.

And yes, I will have some Gløgg (or Glogg) with it.

Here is a recipe for Norwegian Gløgg, or just buy it online from Amazon

All photo credits go to Wolfgang Drescher, who gave me permission to post this one.

Feldberg in Winter

These photos were taken at the Feldberg yesterday morning around 10:30. Mind you, if you do get as cold as these photos convey, bring suitable warm-ups with you (Glühwein in a thermos, heating pillows, etc.). The restaurants do not open before 11 a.m.

This is what you will see on the Feldberg:
