Amazing beards and moustaches - world championship pictures from Norway

Have a look at this hairy lot.

There are some amazing pictures coming out of The Beards and Moustaches World Championship 2011 at Trondheim in Norway.

I particularly like the superb offering from Dieter Besuch of Germany (first picture), who won the Partial Beard Freestyle category.

I have fond memories of Trondheim, having once travelled there for a wedding. Didn't know I was going to be bestman until I had arrived in a T-shirt and jeans (long time ago - and I was a student). I had to borrow a suit.

Although their English was very good indeed (probably better than a lot of Englishmen) nobody laughed at my jokes. They didn't understand the puns. And it was a bit deflating when a guest came up after the reception and said: "I'm told you made a funny speech!"

Beautiful town in a beautiful country - and holding the beard championships there proves they really do have a sense of humour.

Have a look at the Telegraph picture story.

When you're travelling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road. Flights to Cairo
