Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
After our visit to the Lysefjord, The Viking and I faced a dilemma. We were so impressed by what we had seen that we wanted see more! More fjords that is. That meant we were supposed to drive to the northwest. And we did have time to do that…
The problem was money. Norway is expensive. Driving to the northwest meant a lot more driving to the southeast when going back to Sweden and Denmark. That means more gas for the car. And gas in Norway is really expensive. Very expensive. It would also mean buying more food and as you might have guessed that’s expensive too… And after our return in Denmark, we still had a lot more other plans.
So, with a heavy heart, we decided to go back the day afterwards. Although going south means less spectacular landscapes we still enjoyed the purity of nature. It was a beautiful region with lots of lakes and small pretty towns and villages. I took most of the pictures between Tonstad and Eiken:
Afterwards, we drove on the motorway again and there I had no opportunity to take beautiful pictures (or any pictures at all!). Late in the afternoon we left Norway, via the tunnel under the Oslo Fjord.
It was very nice meeting you, Norway! Hope to see you again very soon!
