It is a spectacular country they live in, the Norwegians.

No wonder, they walk around in a state of eternal bliss, and don't concern themselves with worldly trivialities, like shoes...

The Norwegian countryside does seem gorgeous indeed. It's been on my bucket list for a long while!

IA looks so much like MM in the first photo of her on her way to Uranienborg!

Although it should be said that it isn't so long since it was last painted, but it's very exposed to hard weather.

But he's likely had it since he was born, have noticed it in several photos of him over the years.

One of the people in the comment section points this out, adding that the owners make grimaces with the dog. The person then questions whether this is an attempt to bully people with DS? To which The Crown Princess replied:
''Louie lever med en kromosomfeil. Han er verdens nydeligste lille hund. Tror ikke eierne har ment noe vondt med å beskrive han som en hund med downs.''
''Louie lives with a chromosome defect. He is the world's most beautiful little dog. Don't think the owners have meant anything bad with describing him as a dog with down's.''

The biography was then changed to ''Boston terrier living the good life with my Mommy: @julianesnekkestad and daddy: @marius_borg.''

Well, well, well, that was just asking for trouble!!!
First with the text and second with CP MM posting the link. Yes, the media even got a main article on VG-online out of it (which is Norway's largest news-website with over 2 million daily readers) - plus that it was mentioned on TV2 News Channel.

Well, that's nothing!

Just take a look at my response to HereditaryPrincess below.

It's not just the countryside. I mean almost the whole country is full of either fjords and islands or mountains and valleys.

So treat yourself a visit. - But be aware of the high prices.

BTW: I have been holidaying in Lofoten this summer (an archipelago and traditional district with several Fishing villages in the breathtaking Northern Norway region).

Here are some photos: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

Information, pictures and videos from the ''Visit Norway'' website (link).

English Wikipedia article (link).

Youtube Video - ''Take a look at one of the most magic places on earth'' (link).

Youtube Video - ''The Northern Light in Lofoten'' (link).

Her comment presumably did not help matters either. It sounds at least that Mr. Borg Høiby quickly corrected his gaffe.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra participated in the inspection of the bats in Skaugum.

The bats in Skaugum are annually controlled to maintain an overview of the stock.

I've heard about batcaves but not battrees.

The man standing next to her in the photo with Ingrid on the ladder is that a batman?

- The bad bat jokes are lining up! Better go to bed.

If you check the comments you'll see that Gwyneth Paltrow herself have written a comment. Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Gwyneth have been close friends for many years.
