New direct long-haul flights from Scandinavia winter 2013

- Norwegian will launch non-stop flights to Bangkok and New York
Norwegian Air Shuttle will launch non-stop flights with brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircrafts to Bangkok and New York March 2013. Tickets will be available from October/November 2012.
Director Bjørn Kjos in Norwegian Air Shuttle is, in spite of a possible strike among his pilots, optimistic on behalf of his company. So much so that he launch two long-haul flights from coming winter either Oslo or Stockholm to Bangkok and New York.
This move is made as Scandinavians love these two destinations and by launching these new Norwegian Air Shuttle join the competition with Scandinavian Airlines and Continental on transatlantic flights from Oslo that have proven to be a success for the two companies these last years.

Similarly Thai Airlines has operated non-stop flights from Oslo to Bangkok since 2009.

Gardening break

Checche - a Peruvian corn variety
I don't believe it! I have been absent from my blog for a week. This as my muscles ache from gardening, and I am completely worn out every evening. But the work on our (Dagfinn Skoglund and mine) allotment is progressing, and soon I will plant out corn from the Andes. Cool!
I bought seeds along the roas close to the town of Pisca, an hour and a half drive away from Cuzco. All the seeds were vacuum packed and properly marked as this Checche corn, with blue spots. Five varieties of corn and five varieties of beans have sprouted in my window and are ready to face the nordic spring climate, not very unike the Norwegian summer climate.

I have to start working on Enjoy Food & Travel again, but I promise you that there will be amazing food stories from my garden allotment as I start to harvest our own grown vegetables.

So do not let me down. There will be daily stories soon once again here on Enjoy Food & Travel.
