The MSDN & TechNet Live tour 2010 in Norway visited Oslo as the final destination 26th April. Microsoft invited me to join them on this tour and to be on their Windows Phone stand, off-course I accepted this invitation.
I was not able to be in all of the four cities this tour visited, but I got to be in Stavanger and Oslo. The period this tour lasted was the same period that Norway and the rest of Europe had to shut down the air traffic because of the ash cloud from the volcano eruption on Iceland. This caused some difficulties for the crew, speakers and partners to get to the different cities. Despite the difficulties the tour was completed successfully.
I needed to travel by car from Oslo to Stavanger and this is normally an 8 hours drive each way. We thought that it would be exciting to drive from Oslo to Stavanger via a route we had never driven before and ended up on a spectacular and very long drive. During the drive we had all the 4 seasons with sunny weather in Oslo, snow storm at a mountain passage (1060 meter above the sea level) and rainy weather in the long valleys. Easy to say we took the safe 8 hours drive route back home to Oslo
