You were on that rock!? I don't think you could pay me any amount of money to go and sit on it (exaggeration, I'd do it for like, a hundred bucks)Might as well, you guys deserve to see the glorious sceneries of Norway!
I Live in the South-Western (Best) part of the country, in a region called Rogaland. The biggest city of the reagion is Stavanger (AKA the Oil Capital), about 45 km from my home village, though I recently moved to Stavanger to go to Uni.
Rogaland has the oldest historiy in Norway, home to the first Norwegians, and played an important role all the way from the bronze age to the viking age. It was in this reagion Harald Fairhair unified Norway to one kingdom at the battle of Hafrsfjord in year 872.
Rogaland is often called "Norway in Miniature" because it has a bit of everything.
The flat farmlands of Jæren sort of resamble the Danish landscapes with long beaches, windmills and cultivated croplands.
And just a few kilometers east lies the tall mountans, and the deep fjords of Ryfylke, home to the infamous "Preikestolen" or "Pulpit Rock"
And "Kjeragbolten", A rock stuck between to cliffs, hanging above the fjord at a hight of almost 1000m. (I've been standing on it myself, never again...)
So that's my home, couldn't ask for a better place to live!
Speaking of nothing spectacular, I guess it's about time I showed off the beautiful city of Philadelphia!So ye nothing spectacular really
Geez that place looks AMAZINGIMPORTANT:

We have Threads for dekstopbackgrounds, the PC-Setup, RL-Pictures and all that stuff.
But as i just saw Walpole posting this...
...i thought it would be interessting to see, where everybody lives or comes from.
So I'll start:
I grew up in the "Allgäu" (which is in Bavaria/Germany, right at the border of the alps).
It looks kinda like the Shire mixed with mountains, so its pretty nice.
And we have a lot of cows here.
Once a german poet said "The Allgäu beginns, where the cows are more beautiful than the girls."
We loves theses animals!
There is this deep called "Breitach-klamm".
Its a pretty nice hike to go through and its kind of famous in the region.
And here we have my favorite mountain, which I absolutly love for its special look.
Only 30 minutes by car, so im out there quite regulary.
Its where i am in the picture in the RL-pictures-thread.
Oh ya... and we have this of course! (which u might know )
So show me where you live. Im really curious!
