Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Luxury problem of the day

Published: Thursday 2011-06-09.

One of the things I have dreaded the most when moving from Vålerenga to Helsfyr is to have to bike over Grenseveien to get to and from the office. Grenseveien is a very busy, steep and fairly narrow road, and is the, so far, only place where I as a biker has been harassed by a car driver (I have your plate number) for having biked following all possible rules and regulations.

But yet again Google Maps came to my rescue. It looks like they recently have added walkways and bicycle paths to their mapping service, because when I searched yesterday I found an alternative route over Tøyen train station that means I can avoid the Grenseveien hill. Hurrah!

Lycka är en cykelväg! Hoppas att den finns på riktigt också, det vet man inte säkert förrän man åker på vägen.
