Travel Photo of the Day (August 13)

I think all of the excitement and staying up late watching the Olympics wore me out. I wish it was a rainy day so I could curl up in bed and read. This photo was taken during a cruise of the fjords in Oslo, Norway. It was a gloomy day. A good day to stay in bed and read.

  1. I wish for rainy and gloomy days sometimes too. Just so I can read, get caught up on blogging stuff and snuggle with my kids without feeling the need to get up and out.

  2. Just pretend it’s a rainy day and do it anyway :). I’m on my last day of holidays, so I’m trying to relax and read, but chores keep getting in the way. As far as the Olympics go, I’m a little sad today because I miss getting my alerts on my iPad about results and medals :(. It seems too quiet now doesn’t it?

    I have a friend who lives in Norway. She invited me to come visit the last time I was in Europe, but I couldn’t as my schedule was just too packed. Maybe next time. I hope you had a fun time.
