KILDEN Theatre and Concerthall in Kristiansand opened its doors to the public in January 2012.
16.500 m2, 4 halls and 2277 seats.
The architecture reminds me a little bit of the Sydney Opera House from certain angles.
I visited KILDEN for the first time yesterday, and I was very impressed with the exterior and interior of the building. After photographing the building from all corners we had dinner at the cafe´ inside, called "Kast loss", and afterwards we enjoyed the theatre "Ekte kjærlighet" (Real love) based on the book "Amtmannens døtre" by the famous Norwegian author Camilla Collett (part one published in 1854, and part two in 1855). The play was amazing and even if the book is over 150 years old, the theme is still so important "right now"!

Majestic Mount Everest seen from Tibet the summer of 2009. We drove up to about 4900 masl where we stayed overnight. That same day we walked up to 5200 masl on a stone road, so no real climbing, just a spectacular view of this mountain, and a story to tell about how I woke up with the sight of Mount Everest outside my tent!
My parents are big fans of the Botanical Garden, so for my mother´s birthday we went here for lunch. The restaurant is happily situated in beautiful surroundings and a lot of the food on the menu are grown here locally.
Birthday cake the Botanical Garden way, and raki with honey.

As a lot of the Greek population live of tourism, my sister and her boyfriend usually work every day all season and have the winter off. I think I will have to come outside the season to explore more of Crete, as my sister will have more time to travel with me then. But luckily there are nice places nearby for the 5 hours break she has in the middle of the day, and on the Sunday after my parents had arrived, Yannis had the day off, and we all went to Falasarna, about 35 minutes from Gernai, passing through the city of Kissamos.
We had lunch first before we had the mandatory Frappe (Greek ice coffee) on the beach.

I was a late bloomer when it comes to traveling. My first trip was to Malorca when I was 10, followed up by my au-pair year in Scotland at 19. From 2002 I have been bitten by the travel bug and I now spend several weeks out of the country each year. I have reached 35 countries now and on this blog I share pictures and stories from my travels. Enjoy and welcome to my world:-)
