10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

See you in Norway

My flight leaves Denver at 1:00 this afternoon and I arrive in Oslo at 9:45 tomorrow morning. Riding first class on the way to New Jersey should be quite a treat. There's no outlets on the flight (I called and asked Continental), so I won't be able to get much work done. I might as well sit back, watch a movie or two, and have a couple cocktails. ;-)

A friend of mine (hey Frenchie) told me the best strategy for overcoming jet lag is to stay up all day until the local time's evening - and go to bed at the same time as everyone else. So I arrive around midnight Denver time, and if I stay up until bed-time Oslo time, it'll be like staying up until noon tomorrow. Should be interesting for sure.

I'll try to post some pictures tomorrow, as well as blog about my experience getting over there. Stay tuned!

Since you will be arriving at 9:45 am local time, it is a good idea to sleep on the flight, and treat the arrival as your "normal" wake up time. That will make it easier to make it through the first day.

Have a nice flight, Matt. We look forward to having you.

Welcome to Norway. What's the occation? I'm in Denmark at the moment, if I was in Oslo I'd invite you for a beer. :) Guess I'll have to recommend Mikrobryggeriet (just off Bogstadveien between Nationaltheateret and Majorstuen) where you get the best beer in town. (The regular beer in Norway isn't really worth drinking)

I second what Matt said, since you arrive in the morning just keep awake until normal bed hours Norwegian time. Just sent you (well, Julie I guess) info about the power cord.

Maybe someone here know of a Apple store in downtown Oslo?

I guess you've landed now, call me if there are any problems. See you for dinner and some beers tomorrow! :)
Looking forward to having you here!

Nik - I'm here to do some training and speaking. Thanks for the Mikrobryggeriet tip!

Kjetil - I'm typing this on a PowerBook at the Apple Store in downtown Oslo. I should be able to get mine fixed here. I'll post about the flight and whether I got it fixed in the next couple of hours.
