A farewell from Scandinavia. Three capitals. Three Olympic venues. Getting to know good sustainable practices, and of course beautiful nature and also some workout. Another bobsled after skiing!
Ciril, Toli and company traveled from Copenhagen to Malmö, Sweden, via the Oresund Strait. The mighty combination of a bridge and an underwater tunnel impressed the team, which drove to Oslo along the beautiful Swedish-Norwegian coast. In the Norwegian capital, which hosted the 1952 Winter Olympic Games, Ciril briefed a representative of the domestic Olympic Committee on our story. Norwegians, like us, are well aware that top athletes can be the best ambassadors, role models and "media" through which the general public is effectively made aware of topics relevant to nature and society.
If only five Slovenes competed at the Olympic Games in Oslo in 1952, there were as many as twenty-two in Lillehammer forty-two years later. Jure Košir whose ski challenge Ciril completed at Copenhill and Katja Koren won the slalom bronze at the slalom race in Hafjell. Less than twenty-eight years later, Tomaž, an AMZS member of our team, skied the Olympic slope very quickly. Always good times! And not just on the ski slope, but also on the bobsled track, where our cameraman enjoyed it. All the best, Marko! From Oslo, our team drove again to Sweden, to Stockholm. In the city that hosted the 1912 Summer Olympics, Ciril may also have remembered Nik's language advice from the first Studio Triglav. Swedish? Nick is the first to learn it in five weeks. "Learning a language is a sport!" is an address in one of the manuals that impressed Nik. You too? Join him in the YouTube series Swede should bë!
While Nik and I are working on Swedish, Ciril is already waiting for Russian. Привет!
