Asker – Residental Area

For å gi dere en ide om hvordan det ser ut i Asker har jeg funner et vanlig boligområde. Ikke av de mest eksklusive, men heller ikke blant de dårligste! Et slags ‘midt på treet’, om man kan bruke det uttrykket?
To give you an idea of what it’s like living in Asker, I’ve tried to find you a medio area:
Not the most exclusive, but absolutely not ‘low standard’; a kind of ‘middle in between’, if you undestand what I mean . . .?
(Compliments of SRB)

Please return me to INDEX for a new destination.

    The neighborhood appears to be well kept and wow – look at the mountains in the background!

      This is from a typical suburban area between the cities Oslo and Drammen, however, the whole area (both sides of the Oslofjord) with a dozen smaller cities are slowly growing together. In 50 – 80 years from now, we might see one large city engulfing this fjord accomodating a couple of millions of people. I won’t live to see it (and I don’t much care),
      but that’s the way it’s going.

    The name of town is interesting for me, because in my own language, “Asker” means soldier, army… The origin of the word coming from the old days, We find it first in “Dada gorgud epic” (14th century)…Thank you, have a nice day, Love, nia

      Hi Nia, –
      Nice to hear from you! For a while there I thought you were running a picture show for all your friends? 🙂 But we really appreciate your interest!
      Did you know that a lot of Norwegians (among them many friends of mine) have bought holiday cabins/apartements in Turkey?!

      I checked the name here in Norway.
      It seems that originally it started out with ‘Ask’ due to a man living on a hill where there were many ashes growing. (Ask in Norwegian means ‘ash tree’) Asker is the plural form of ‘Ask’, but – this information comes from way back in time, and nobody seems to be quite sure of the origin any more. But it made you send me a comment, which is great! Welcome to my blog!!!

        I haven’t known that Norwegians bought holiday cabins in here, I only know, UK people, and there are already some British villages 🙂 It is so nice for me, I love Nordic countries and their people, but do you know, I wished to live there too 🙂 I am not happy with our administration, politics, etc. You can understand what I mean, because I don’t like to talk about them. Yes, “Asker
