Impressions From the Photo and Travel Exhibition 2012

Don't touch!!! Just dream!

Don’t touch!!! Just dream!

Around the world in one day! Here are some photos from the annual photo & travel exhibition at Lillestrøm, Norway. This exhibition is a combined photo & travel exhibition which this year took place between 02-04 of March 2012. Previous years it has been arranged in January.

This is arranged during the weekend, which means that most people have a couple of days where they don’t have to show up at the slavery work, and this exhibition is a brilliant opportunity to go and have a look into different places of the world – places that probably are far more interesting than your workplace.

I’m not sure what is my favourite part about this exhibition, but I enjoy the photo exhibition and the fact that you can taste different types of food – mainly from all over Norway. Sadly there weren’t that many food-freebies this year as the previous ones, but you could still taste some decent food at different stalls.

I also enjoy looking at all the different travel destinations, dreaming about going to interesting & exotic places, and of course; try out the photo equipment… *drool*

Have you seen the famous movie called “Flåklypa Grand Prix” (dubbed into English as Pinchcliffe Grand Prix) by Ivo Caprino?

Il Tempo Gigante - the full scale version (and fully operational!).

Il Tempo Gigante – the full-scale version (and fully operational!).

“Il Tempo Gigante is a full-scale replica of the racing car featured in the Pinchcliffe Grand Prix movie by Ivo Caprino. The car measures 6.70 metres, from cranking handle to exhaust pipe, and has a beam of 2.48 metres.”

“The car has been built in its entirety at the Caprino Filmcenter studios in Norway, a task that took some twelve months, and was carried out under the vigilant eye of the Ministry of Transport inspectors, to ensure that the finished article satisfies all safety regulations.”

“It is licensed as a veteran car, weighs some 6000 pounds, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km an hour in just about 6 seconds.” (quotes from the official website).

If you travel to Norway and feel like seeing the Il Tempo Gigante, it’s on permanent display at “Hunderfossen Familiepark” (Hunderfossen Family Park), in Fåberg, North of Lillehammer.

After having checked out all the travel destinations – both domestic and international – we headed over to the area where the photo exhibition took place. I’ll leave you with these photos:

  1. Some very amazing photos. Can’t decide which I like the best. The yellow car and coloful bus was nice. Thank you so much for sharing.

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!

    • This is just a small sample of everything that was there. They also had an area for children where they, among other things, had goats and animals to give the kids some insight into that world.
      Then there was a lot of different cameras on display, plus a whole lot of travel destinations.

  2. Looks like you had a great time! Events like those can be so fun 🙂 did you have a moose burger? I’ve never had a moose burger – but last year my boyfriend’s cousin got a moose while they were hunting so when they sent it off for butchering we were sent plenty of sausage from it as there was a lot of meat to go around! Quite tasty I must say though, I like it better than deer – and deer isn’t bad!

    • Yes we had a moose burger & a moose hot dog!
      I agree: moose is better than deer. Currently we have a red-wine moose sausage in our kitchen, but I prefer a tenderloin!
      One of my friends is a skilled hunter, so I’m hoping he’ll throw some meat in my direction after his next hunt 😀

      • Always nice to know hunters, no one we know got a moose this year so no moose meat for us! Maybe next year 😉 good luck with yours!
