    Nach einer tollen Party und kurzer Nacht geht's weiter Richtung Norden bei herrlichem Sonnenschein und einer traumhaft schönen Gegend. Wir haben uns etwas von den anderen Teams abgesetzt und einen anderen Weg als die meisten Teams gewählt.

    J14 de la Norvège plein les yeux

    June 8 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

    Pluie continue le matin. L'image radar Internet nous apprend que cette pluie va cesser en fin de matinée. Nous décidons donc d'attendre, parce que se faire mouiller en moto, c'est le jeu normal, mais prendre des photos sous la pluie, ce n'est pas une partie de plaisir.
    Donc départ vers midi, et retour dans la partie sud des Lofoten, pour visiter le village de Nusfjord. Puis circuit des points repérés par Arnaud sur son GPS. Tout est magnifique et grandiose. Nous avons pris beaucoup de photos, et il va être très difficile de choisir les meilleures pour ce blog.
    Nous nous sommes arrêtés à 23h30 à 100 km de Narvik, où Arnaud a trouvé un bel hôtel avec deux chambres libres, juste à côté d'un lac.

    Layby near Tjeldsundbrua bridge + video

    July 10, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Close to the waterfall stopover there was another restplace with a designated toilet cassette emptying point. We once again swiped our bank card to open the door but instead of a cubicle with a drain we were faced with a machine with a roller blind. When we pressed a button the blind raised revealing a space into which we placed our toilet cassette before the roller lowered and the machine automatically emptied and cleaned our toilet, leaving it with just the right amount of water and ecological fluid! All for free! We were so impressed at this space age emptying system! Vicky was even tempted to take on toilet duty the next time we encountered one!

    We travelled down the coast road for about 5 hours and took in some awesome scenery, including beautiful reflections of blue skies, white clouds and snowy mountains in the water surface of the fjord from which they rose. We (especially Vicky) were in need of a place to stay for 2 nights to relax and digest all we'd experienced. We initially stopped at a nondescript restplace with picnic tables but Will managed to find a large layby overlooking the Straight that ran between the mainland and
    Hinnøya (Hinn Island), the fourth largest in Norway. We had a great view of the water and the Tjeldsundbrua bridge that connected the island to us on the mainland. We also had access to the water via a steep bank, which meant Will could occupy himself fishing and didn't risk becoming bored in the van and annoy Vicky 😉

    The morning brought a stillness to the water of the Straight so the island hills and bridge reflected well in the bright sunlight. Vicky spent a lazy day in the van catching up with photos, videos and the blog. Will fished to his heart's content and even caught a small Coalfish! Other fishers came and parked up at various points during the day and one who Will had talked to even caught and left another Coalfish for him, so we were able to have one each for tea!

    Today was supposed to be one without too much excitement but as Vicky was looking out of the window she saw a dorsal fin breaching the water surface as a Harbour Porpoise made its way towards the bridge, occasionally coming up for air. She shouted down to Will who managed to also catch a glimpse. Later we were both in the van and saw a group of 3! They were feeding and surfacing to breathe 3 or 4 times before diving for fish. We watched two different sessions of this behavior for about 10 minutes each before they got too far away.
    If this wasn't mind blowing enough, we later saw a Sea Otter close to shore. We reckon it had been attracted by the fish guts Will had thrown in the water when cleaning his catch. It was swimming along on its front, twisting and floating on its back for a while and diving with a plop as its thick conical tail disappeared. We once again felt blown away by what Norway had revealed to us!

    The quality isn't great but we managed to catch the Porpoises and Otter on film and have uploaded a video to VnW Travels' YouTube Channel here:
