VERY NICE! You never disappoint with the Norway photography. You must get paid good in Dubai to be willing to leave this splendor. Cheers!

I like Dubai, but offer me a job in Norway and I'll move tomorrow

View of Breiddalen from the top of Dalsnibba mountain. The road gives a clue to how vast the landscape truly is. It's the same road continuing 1500 ft below.

I'm sure you would be able to find something if you tried. The economy is relatively strong at the moment. Of course it does depends on what you are qualified for though.

Hehe, my pleasure... but I rather thank YOU for the hospitality

Norway offers very good opportunities for engineers, I've heard. And I only studied economics

But seriously, I think I should first learn some of the language

Cheers,
Sebastian

Stunning pics mate - Norway and New Zealand look like twin countries (we also have a region called Fiordland )
