Oh how the tables have turned
Hjello, A pet named Sven speaking. I have internet once again! Hope I don't annoy anyone with this, but more (un)interesting stuff happened in good ol' Norway.
- met the world record holder of plaice angling, a German dude renting boats
- Steve drove a boat! 30 knots in a fjord and part of the sea
- saw a dude bent down and working while another dude continuosly whipped him with two elastic plastic pipes that the had strapped over his arms
- more snow
- two wingsuit divers jumping down in front of us
- Tons of Norwegians dressed as Bavarians and driving nice old Chevys and small buses with spikes
- rode the steepest skylift in the world
- said "boy I sure am glad that this path is so safe well made" and immediately tripped after saying it
- met a dog named Rikk
- accidentally left boob imprints in snow
This is it from Sven today. Sorry if this is annoying. But I miss you guys and I like to share stuff.
@A pet named Steve, sounds like having no internet was exciting. You watch out for them spoders and we missed you too 👍🏼
@A pet named Steve, I was enjoying your great adventure until you said “accidental” boob imprints.... now my mind has wondered off
@A pet named Steve, well everyone knows the most interesting part is the bo...ating stories! Fjords!
@seeUpee, it was on accident lol. I was so happy about seeing snow that I threw myself in, and, well. I left imprints.
@A pet named Steve, leave some more in my honor please
@A pet named Steve, I feel these comments sections have changed alot since you've been away and I don't want you to see what it's become at this point. But we love these stories, keep them coming!
@Jipz, unfortunately we're driving home tomorrow, but that trip is gonna take like 3 days so who knows what will happen! And what happened to the comments? Wish I could check in with you guys more. Signal in Norway is super good but I don't have any data left... And WiFi in this hut is not really good either
@A pet named Steve, how long did you go for? And jesus you are driving? How come? There's no way that can be cheaper? And the way you have described Norway makes it sound nuts, like no matter where you look, something interesting is happening, makes me want to go. And to put it straight, 75% of the comments have turned into just perverted sex talk, best way to put it 😂 seems rarer to find comedic comments anymore
@Jipz, yea my mom's driving us around lol. It's actually cheaper than flying - Norway is a rich and expensive country, and we can bring our own food by car. We saved a lot of money! For comparison, the cheapest bottle of beer I found was like 5€, in Germany you'd get it for 80ct. And yes, Norway is amazing! There's so much stuff!
I've noticed too that lots of the comments are getting perverted. Nothing bad per se, but I don't enjoy reading them. It's why I thought of taking a break from this app. It really used to be my safe space, but now I somehow get anxious on here a lot. Ah, we'll see. But I like things like this, these little conversations - they just make your day better. At least for me. ^^
@A pet named Steve, oh wow i would never have thought of that, that's really smart! And yeah in alot of places around the world you will find beer is priced like that, I didn't know Germany was so cheap (I think?) did you go for any particular reason? Like to do something in particular or did you just fancy going, and just seeing what there is to do once you were there? Considering you drove with your own food and drinks it sounds like you really had it all planned out.
And yeah I've mentioned it a few times on here over the last few weeks, a bit isn't bad but it's alot. There aren't many funny comments anymore. I used to get enjoyment and laughter mostly from the comments and that's why I loved this community, but the recent months really seem to have lost that for the most part, which is a bit saddening. I doubt I could ever take a break from here though, because I've had this app for years and years now, and it's still my first place to come to for procrastination and fun times.
@A pet named Steve, What would you say is the best place you've seen? I wanna travel too but I don't don't really know where to start.
@A pet named Steve, the Little personal conversations we have with random people in these comments are really nice, wholesome you could say. Just having a one to one with someone you don't know, about something you both can converse about, or even in this case where its just your holiday and personal experience (although, you aren't really some random person when it comes to this community, on an individual level, yes, we literally don't know eachother, but you are pretty "well known" when it comes to this community) is just relaxing.
I mentioned the comments because just from the types of comments you post, your comments are not anything like how the others are now, and I miss that.
@Fear Itself, you should come to Wales ;) from someone who lives here, I'd say try to travel somewhere that is quite different to where you currently live. Big city - green rural country (it just rains here alot).
@Jipz, we picked a nice place to stay, but the rest we just discovered! And we are free to prolong our trip since we don't have to catch a flight. We decided for a route to take yesterday, hope it'll be interesting.
And yeah, beer here is cheap, but good beer is not haha. I think a supermarket called Penny once had half a liter for 11ct.
I wish the pendulum would swing back more to funny comments. Doesn't have to be exclusively that, but at least a bit more. This is, after all, Funny Pics. Oh well.
Even though it's much fun talking to you, I have to go to bed now! It's almost 12 here and I need to get up early tomorrow... But thank you for having this convo with me. Made me really happy. Good night! ^^
@Jipz, I would love to visit Wales! What's the culture like? What do you like to do for fun? And what would you start with if you've never been there before?
@Jipz, ah, didn't see this comment if yours.
It makes me happy that you think that about my comments! I like being able to share stories and make jokes without being afraid or scared as I would be I'm real life. And yeah, it's strange how we kinda don't know each other, but in a way still do. But I think that's great. (Ok, but now good night!)
@Fear Itself, Oslo is a good way to start, we are staying in Olden! Bergen is supposedly very nice too. You should definitely visit the fjords. I do recommend Olden/Oldedalen.
@A pet named Steve, Is Oslo the capital city? Also is the money kronor or euro?
@A pet named Steve, yes, same here, just hit 11pm, got a friend from Norway, nice little chat :) safe travels, Steve!
@Fear Itself, its difficult to say because it's different depending on where you go. If you go north/west Wales, you'll find prominently Welsh speakers, and it's a different culture all together. There's lots of mountains, hills and greenery. you'll see alot of cobble like walls and builds, cottages and there's always lots of villages, once again depending on where you are, there won't be alot of cottages in the city, as an example. Just the idea of looking outside and seeing greenery, a hill or something like a cobble wall was so alien when I told my American friend. You can go to the capital, which is built heavily towards tourists, giving history and all sorts around. I'm from the South East, actually near the capital although haven't been in years, and I've only travelled to West Wales. Out of all of the UK, I'd say Wales is actually my least explored, that and Northern Scotland. So I'm sorry I couldn't give a good answer, because honestly I don't know a massive amount myself.
@Jipz, That's ok. I appreciate your knowledge. I've lived in colorado for almost 10 years and don't know as much as I'd like.
@Fear Itself, sorry, I edited my comment. But yeah things to do for fun? I don't really do much myself. Since it's the UK, there's always a pub within 5 minutes walking distance from you, so there's that. Where I am there's alot of rivers, canals and some lakes, so fishing can be quite popular, but really isn't for everyone. For most "fun" things, the capital has alot to it, as its built around tourism. There's alot to do there. If you ever liked doctor who, it's filmed here, and there's a massive, almost museum-like area for it at the bay. People seem massively interested with our accents, even I am because I have quite a posh "brittish" accent, although all my family souhd quite Welsh, no idea how I sound so different. Oh, and we're awesome because we have a dragon as our flag -- the Welsh dragon.
@A pet named Steve, we're always happy to hear from you!
@Fear Itself, Oslo is the capital, but it's different from the rest of Norway. Saying goes that if you only visit Oslo you haven't visited Norway. And yes, it's kroner, no euros or dollars possible - but you can pay almost anywhere with credit card. In kiosks, bars, supermarkets, even on a fair or festival, they seem to have that everywhere. But it is very expensive since Scandinavia as a whole is pretty darn rich.
@A pet named Steve, your little trip updates are adorable, never stop sharing things with us pls Sven
@Plm9872, I'm happy you enjoy it!
