I didn't post nothing dead! It was flies on a chicken terd. But I like your theme. Must go and get some pics of "sleeping" Wombats for you.

Haha, yes, I want to see some pictures of some "sleeping wombats!

Here are some more from Finland. My wife was around for a couple weeks over the holiday. We spent a few days in Stockholm and a couple in Helsinki before heading back to Oulu.

Stockholm is incredibly beautiful. Unfortunately the weather was kinda dreary so some of pictures are not that great.


The Vasa in Stockholm. It was such an amazing museum with tons of awesome history. In short, the Vasa was the pride of the Swedish fleet when built in the 1600's. The only problem was that it was poorly designed, and sunk 2 miles into its maiden voyage. It sat at the bottom of the Baltic before being raised in the 1950's (and awesome story in itself).


Pretty gnarly cannon ball. Made me shudder a bit.


Stopped at the Nobel Museum... not bad, but the current exhibit wasn't one that we were too interested in.


Had a beer at Monk's Cafe. I asked what they brewed there in a IPA/pale. The bartender gave me this. It was an okay pale, but it cost $14. Stockholm was insanely expensive, although still quite an amazing city.


Random graffiti in Stockholm


My wife was born and raised in hot climates (Kenya, the Galapagos Islands, Mexico, Davis, etc.), so the Finnish winter was quite tough for her.


Suomenlinna Island in Helsinki. Again, some cool history there. It was freaking cold, though!


They had 1000 canons on the island when it was first created. The Russians still managed to take it over, though.

A few more...

We spent NYE morning hanging out around a fire and eating some food.


Later we did a bit of ice fishing.


Comically small fishing poles


A nice and snowy NYE

prop and I had gone camping, and the next morning we caught rain. We had breakfast at the Delta Diner and then I worked some dirt roads on the way home. The roads were mucky and it was raining hard lots of the time, and every once in a while a mud hole would grab my front wheel. But as you can see, it was beautiful and an adventure. A high point of the year really.

That pic has a sister I recently posted in anther thread, but I'll re-post because I enjoy looking at it

very cool. It kind of captures what Motorcycling is about. You don't always know what the road will bring you, but it's beautiful. Its just you, the road, the machine, and memories. Very nice. Keep takin 'em.

Thank You for the Winter tales Enzo, sprinkle of history too.

Unfortunately/Fortunately, we don't get wombats in town, the occasional schkip (as my wog mate would call them) but no wombats. When I travel back to my home property in Bathurst I go through the Bylong Valley. The soil in that region suits the wombats down (in) to the ground, so you see many "sleeping" on the road's verge, commonly next to a schkip. I'll have my Nikon ready next time.

Lovely avenue Bonnie, lovely photographs. The road surface doesn't look like my cuppa though.

I love it when this thread fires up. Thank you everybody.


P.S. My language conscious son (who was reading over my shoulder) pointed out that "Graffiti" is the plural. The singular is "Graffito". I love stuff like that too.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Yea, Bolder... I want to see some wombat pictures at some point! Nice bird pics crazyman.

I'll warm everyone up with some pictures from my in-law's house in Mexico. Some are lower res as I pulled them off my facebook since the originals are on my desktop back in the states.

The courtyard of my in-laws place in San Miguel de Allende. What I would give to be there now drinking a beer and reading a book!


As I said.... book and beer




Alebrije store outside Oaxaca


Not so fierce guard dog




Chapulines... ground grasshoppers with different flavoring


One of my favorites

I love the markets where you buy meat and can grill it yourself


I didn't try one of these, though


Plenty of color


Churros - one of my favorite foods
