On 22-23 September 2012, We (me and Winarso) took a trip to Preikestolen, Stavanger. Actually this place is recommendation from Ratna Winduratna (one of the STM Norway college), She show me some pictures when she was at the top and my first impression is “Wow this place look extreme and amazing”. Why dont we give it a try ?

Totally it tooks about 8 hours by train and boat to get there (Stavanger) from Lysaker. We can back on the same day, but Ratna recommended Us to travel for 2 days and stay one night at her husband (Ibnu) apartment who study in University Stavanger.

OK….Let’s get ready to rumble……

Do you know ? No isha time all month

Just for share, do you know ? no isha time all month during may – june – july – august ?

I just found it on islamic prayer time and amazed that there is not time for isha during those month in several northern countries.
When there is no isha time in some cities in Europe, Pray Isha as Ada not Qada at a later time.

Historical Buildings In Norway

Saturday, 8th September 2012. I went to the high street in Oslo town to know and learn some historical buildings in Oslo.
Here are some of photos where I take in the first week of visiting Norway including the historical description.

National Theatre

National Theatre

The first photo is National Theate, The National Theatre in Oslo (Norwegian: Nationaltheatret) is one of Norway’s largest and most prominent venues for performance of dramatic arts.

The theatre had its first performance on 1 September 1899 but can trace its origins to Christiania Theatre, which was founded in 1829. There were three official opening performances, on subsequent days in September; First, selected pieces by Ludvig Holberg, then An Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen, and on the third day Sigurd Jorsalfar by Bj√łrnstjerne Bj√łrnson.

Third, The Royal Palace (Norwegian: Slottet or formally Norwegian: Det kongelige slott (or Norwegian: Det kongelige slottet)) in Oslo was built in the first half of the 19th century as the Norwegian residence of Norwegian and Swedish king Charles III (Carl Johan, Charles XIV of Sweden) and is the official residence of the present Norwegian Monarch

Fourth, Equestrian Statue of King Carl Johan – Charles XIV & III John, also Carl John, Swedish and Norwegian: Karl Johan (26 January 1763 ‚Äď 8 March 1844) was King of Sweden and King of Norway from 1818 until his death.

As the union King, Charles XIV John in Sweden and Charles III John in Norway, who succeeded to that title on 5 February 1818 following the death of Charles XIII & II, he was initially popular in both countries. Upon his accession he converted from Roman Catholicism to the Lutheranism of the Swedish court. He never learned to speak Swedish or Norwegian; however, this was a minor obstacle as French was widely spoken by the Swedish aristocracy.

Charles John’s reign witnessed the completion of the southern G√∂ta Canal, begun 22 years earlier, to link Lake V√§nern to the sea at S√∂derk√∂ping 180 miles to the east. Though his ultra-conservative views were unpopular, particularly from 1823 onwards, his dynasty never faced serious danger, as the Swedes and the Norwegians alike were proud of a monarch with a good European reputation.

Although the Riksdag of the Estates of 1840 meditated compelling him to abdicate, Charles John survived that abdication controversy and he went on to have his silver jubilee, which was celebrated with great enthusiasm on 18 February 1843. He reigned as King of Sweden and Norway from 5 February 1818 until his death.

In Oslo airport i change my $100 with 513 NOK in money changer and then use it to buy train ticket (90NOK) from Oslo airport to Lysaker station.
