Oslo (Norway) Gardermoen airport – Still a disgrace for Norway

Thought for the day…”The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.”

“Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can.”

I have had the misfortune (and misfortune is the word) to travel through the enlarged Oslo airport.   It is still a national disgrace for Norway.   Despite earlier complaints, the airport managers in their infinite wisdom, have still ignored the needs of waiting passengers.   All very well to build a big new terminal, but the queues to check in and at security seem just as bad as ever.    Not only that, but those same airort managers have STILL not put in anywhere near enough seats for waiting passengers.   Before, their excuse was that they did not have enough space for seats (although apparently they did have enough space for stupid scultpures).  Now that the enlarged terminal is open (with more space), there are still not enough seats for waiting passengers.

And once you have negotiated the snake-like lines to go through the security controls, then you have another challenge to find enough seats whilst you wait for the flight.    If you want to find something to do while you wait, good luck, because there seems to be almost nothing for passengers to do (apart fro slow, restricted internet).   Good luck too if you want to charge your phone or computer…the search for a socket will keep you amused for some time before your flight.

So the recently enlarged Oslo airport is just as bad as before.  The queues are still there, the lack of seats is still the same, and the lack of things to do whilst waiting for your flight is just the same.    And the worst part…..we passengers are paying for the privilege of using these poor facilities.    A disgrace for Norway.

Plenty of space for these 2 people on the beach near Surat Bay, on the Catlins Coast of New Zealand..

Down the Subway – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Life is the art of drawing without an eraser”.   ” Does age come with experience or experience with age?”

Did you see the story in the news about Peter Shankmann, who was given a ticket for running in Central Park, New York, before the official opening time?  He was training for an Ironman Triathlon, but was stopped by police for running before the official opening time.   He claims that there were no signs, gates or notices banning running, and intends to fight the charges in court later.   So apparently the police in New York have nothing better to do than ticket innocent runners.  Crazy.

The photo today comes from Slovenia, a lovely place for a holiday.  Previously part of Yugoslavia (until 1991), Slovenia has a population of around 2 million.   Around 50% of the country is forrested.  It is said that it is the only country in the world to have the word ‘LOVE” in it.  The capital is Ljublana, which is where today’s photo was taken.    Late afternoon light has illuminated this subway and the grafitti nicely, whilst the two pedestrians provide a nice balance.    A good photo needs good light, and the light was just right for this photo.
