Colourful Stavanger (Photo Essay)

I had some errands to run on Friday so I took the camera along on my wander around town. It's still gloomy and overcast most days here, but despite the clouds Stavanger just pops with colour.

Amazing photos…Norway is definitely a country we are looking forward to visiting in the next year or two. Thanks for sharing!

Interesting place! I have been to Norway a few times, but not Stavanger. Love the colourful mailboxes!

Thanks, Christina – definitely check out Stavanger if you ever make it back here – beautiful city =)

The mail boxes are excellent! It reminds me of Valparaiso….just on the otherside of the world 😉

You’re the second or third person to compare it to Valparaiso – shame we missed it when we were in Chile!

Such a lovely photo essay. i like the first picture. very nice one. 🙂 It reminds me of a few similar ones I’ve seen throughout Europe. 🙂

Thanks so much, Laura! =)
