This photo is where we start skiing, about 5 minutes walk from our flat.
Some way up the hill, you can see the domes of the observatories on top of Gråkallen Skifield.
Chris is getting thirsty
Last week was my birthday, so to celebrate Chris and I decided to ascend the Trondheim Tower! It is a budget, older version of the Sky tower in Auckland - but it does have a restaurant on the top floor that moves slowly around giving you a panorama over the whole city. We watched the sunset, then the twinkling city lights came on as it grew dark.
In this photo you are looking towards Bymarka. Our flat is right where the sun is setting.

Munkholme Island sits a few hundred meters out into the fjord from the city center. Apparently it is a good place for swimming in the summer - a bit hard to imagine now!
So apart from the usual skiing we have been getting out on the bikes a bit now. Mostly just for commuting, but it is nice to be back on the saddle. We cycled out to an O training near the city on Sunday on a lovely fine day and it really felt like summer was on its way. However, the last two days we have had rain and snow again. I have to admit though...I think now we really are looking forward to the snow going. Yesterday we were actually excited by some green grass poking itself out from the corner of a large dirty melting snow mound.
