This is a statue of Fridtjof Nansen, standing right next to the Holmenkollen ski jump. Fridtjof Nansen was an Norwegian explorer, scientist and diplomat living from 1861-1930. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1922 for his work as a League of Nations High Commissioner.
We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
