Calendar Photo of the Month: May 2017

  Harbor of Bodø • Norway This photo is from my English Norway calendar. Bodø is the northern most point on the Norwegian mainland, that I reached during my Scandinavian Adventure. The morning I took this photo we left Bodø on the ferry toward Moskeness to continue our bike adventure on the Lofoten archipelago.

Since yesterday the weather had cleared again, and now we…
