I haven’t seen this piece of public art since it was installed in Calgary’s Ramsay neighbourhood years ago. It now lives in East Village.

Puppet Industries, Stockholm, Sweden

This is possibly the most colourful and nicely decorated garbage truck I’ve seen, anywhere. Spotted on the streets of Stockholm — another oldie from my visit to northern Europe back in 2014.

Perfect spot for a picnic dinner, Voss, Norway

Here’s an oldie, from when I hung out for a few hours in Voss, Norway, back in August 2014. The reason for being there — to catch a sleeper train back to Oslo — afforded me several hours of wandering.

I had to eat dinner at some point, so after grabbing a few supplies at the local grocery store, I found myself a picnic spot somewhere near water.

Cheap (for Norway) food, priceless view.
