I enjoy going places at a regular basis, both locally and beyond. Mountain hiking in the mountains of Norway is a favourite. I always bring my camera
and make sure to take many pictures. So in this thread i will post a lot of photos from my journeys and adventures in Norway (glaciers, fjords, caves,
steep mountains, and Norwegian cities) and beyond (Himalaya, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Barcelona, Beijing).

You'll have to tell us how to pronounce your username first :D
Now that is a hard one! I have a major problem pronouncing it myself! Old Norwegian haven't been spoken since the medieval ages, but its somewhat similar to Icelandic. I guess you have heard about the volcano Eyjafjallajökull? That is pronounced ɛɪjaˌfjatlaˌjœkʏtl... If that didn't help, you can listen to the pronouncation here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyjafjallajökull

I can't find any pronouncation to listen to of my own username, and i don't even try to explain it, so to make it easy, you can call me Trønderheimer (thats the translation to modern language)!

1| Sulitjelmaisen
Closeups of the cracks in the steepest part of the glacier. This is a place you should pay attention around you as icefalls occur all the time. Its also
fatal to fall or slide down into some of these.
