No I haven’t been visiting Oslo recently, but I forgot to post these pictures of the crazy looking statues found in Frogner park in Oslo, from a trip back there last January.
I realised on Saturday that I am officially a fatty! That gut isn’t being poked out in this photo, that’s just what it looks like when I’m standing. I honestly didn’t realise how chubby I’d got until I was looking through a bunch of photos taken of me that day. I somehow became used to my gut bulging out in a disgusting kinda way. With that in mind, I will be regularly exercising from now on. Looking down and not being able to see my dick is not something I want to experience later in life!
FYI, I blame yummy Berlin food and severe laziness for my current physical state.
I experienced hiking Berlin style today. In Berlin, hiking means to go for a walk in the “wilderness”. In Berlin, “wilderness” refers to the bushy bits between the buildings We took the train to the outskirts of town, then meandered our way through the suburbs, into some beautiful small parks with lots of bush, stopped for ice cream near the local palace then headed over to a lake. The weather was not compatible with swimming, but it was definitely compatible with walking. Lots of fun
I have vivid memories from my childhood. One of the things I remember most vividly, is having dinner at Cherry Court Lodge in Dunedin, where my Dad worked from around the time I was born until I turned five. I still recall having frogs legs for dinner. I don’t know why I liked them so much, but it might have had something to do with the attention I got when I selected it off the menu.
Fast forward 30 years, and I was having dinner in a nice French restaurant in Berlin, so I figured I’d tackle that age old delicacy which I hadn’t tried since those early years. It still tastes pretty good. There aint much meat on those bones though. It’s probably fine for a four year old, but this 34 year old needs a lot more than frogs legs to fill his puku these days
