Personally I went to Nordkapp in 2007. Astonishing.

But i drove through Sweden and Finland before getting in Norway near Alta.

Anyway I think everywhere in Norway is beautiful. Maybe the best fiords are in the south (Stavanger, Bergen, Alesund..) but up in the north, before nordkapp, there are the lofoten islands and tromso. They must be outstanding places.

Going to the Perth Southern Fried Festival this summer with a mate and then walking the Dales Way with a group of walking friends. I'm severely out of practice...

Was on holiday in Northumberland last week and did 5,000 steps in one day - that was one fucking big pub car park :wink:

Off to Croatia in a weeks time, everyone I speak to say it's fantatsic. Fly to Pula in the north and drive down the coast visiting a couple of Islands. If you know any places worth visting let me know. End up past Dubrovnik and then eventually fly back from there. :thumleft:

Look out for Geoff Firebaugh's rockabilly band Hillbilly Casino who're out of Nashville - met Geoff in Kilkenny a few years back...and then have a great time by the seaside!

Catching up on recent travels -at Easter I went to Hamburg to see Whitney Rose and to wander around a German city I hadn't visited. Did the Beatles sites on and around Grosse Freiheit:

The doorway in St.Pauli where John Lennon was photographed - the image was later used for his "Rock'n'Roll" LP.

The docks

No holiday this year. Just moved house and have no money. Might just manage a day trip to Rotherham. Or maybe not.

On a massive revisit of The Beatles just now and re-reading Mark Lewisohn's first volume of biography which sent me to Jurgen Vollmer's photos. Your modern shots are marvellous

Super exciting, safe travels! There's a fantastic barbecue spot every twelve feet, of course--but don't mess around, make them take you to Loveless Cafe or Martin's. If anyone is vegetarian or vegan, their side dish games are strong :*:

Love Colorado. Went to Lyons Folks Festival a few years back and caught the likes of Todd Snider, Josh Ritter and Stephen Kellogg.
