Pizza and GingerAle

Pizza Margherita

I've been quite active as a volunteer tour guide recently as posted here. Sometimes I give two tours (or even more) a day and get so tired afterward. Today was one of those days. Usually when I am exhausted, I go for something sweet with a cup of hot coffee. But for some reason, after giving two tours today, I craved for cheese. So these are what I had: Pizza Margherita and ginger ale.

Yes, I spent a nice, relaxing time at the restaurant. :)

tSee this beautiful scenery? I was in Montana from 4th to 7th, October, 2011. The details of my stay there are posted here and here, if you are interested.
This is the local beer I tried there. It was flavorful, but to tell you the truth, it gave me a little headache afterwords.

Guess Where I am Now!

View from the plane widow today

I'm in the U.S. right now. More specifically, in LA now. I'm flying to Missoula, MT tomorrow, via Salt Lake City. For those who may be interested,I no longer work for the geopark promotion committee. But I am still related to the geopark activities and now I am on my way to a workshop in Montana. Will tell you more about it soon.


I love American airports. Good Wi-fi coverage. Many desks and chairs to sit down and enjoy the internet or get some work done. I especially enjoyed being at the Salt Lake City International Airport. See the Cinnabon in the photo?

Norway 3

The second day of our two-day field trip after a geopark-related conference in Norway. To be perfectly honest, the trip was not as good as the first day. Mostly it was because of the disappointing weather. It was cold and rainy, though the rain stopped once in a while.

In the morning, we visited a production site of Larvikite, the national rock of Norway. The rock itself was interesting. But what was more fun to me was seeing geologists being excited like small kids.

We saw children's performance near the beach and loved it very much. Each of them had a role as a rock and told us what it was made of and how it was made.

It was very lucky that the rain stopped for a while for our lunch outside of the bus.

After that, we visited a place known for traditional salmon fishing. See the river?

These are the people who made the wonderful salmon dishes for us. THANK YOU!! xxx

Our last stop was at a herb farm.

The traditional farm house reminded me of "Ann of green gables."

This last photo was taken at the airport, either Sandefijord or Copenhagen. (I cannot remember which it was...)

I enjoyed almost everything I ate during my stay in Norway. But I have to confess that a craving for rice and miso soup started a few days before our departure. Hahaha... Those were the first thing I had when I came home on the night of the 22nd, September.
