    Eidfjord - Idyllic Norwegian village

    July 12, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Where - Eidfjord, Norway
    Weather - Cool / few showers - 14°C
    Steps - 18500 or 12km (and 46 storeys)

    Brad chose to wake early this morning so he could get a picture of the ship sailing under the Hardanger bridge which only has about 1 metre clearance. I preferred to remain in bed.

    We did not have any excursions organised so the day was ours to do as we wished. We set off to explore the quaint little township of Eidfjord nestled amongst the huge mountains. Exploring meant a lot of walking, particularly uphill to get some great view points so the legs are a little tired tonight.

    Some of the sights we saw was an old stone church built in 1309; a sod roofed house where the roof is made of grass/ flowers on a birch lined base; and a robotic lawnmower which we and some Americans found interesting but apparently is quite a common sight in places like Germany

    All in all it was quite an enjoyable day - the photos really don't do it justice.

    Viel zu früh sind wir mit den Tenderbooten von der Aida, welche mitten im Wasser stand, hinüber zum Eidfjord gefahren. Mit unseren Freunden aus dem Tanzkurs haben wir dann eine gemeinsame Wanderung gemacht, rund um den Eidfjordsee, vorbei an Wikingergräbern. Danach sind wir, leider wieder zu zweit, mit dem Bus zu einem Naturzentrum gefahren, in welchem wir dann einen Film über die Fjorde, Gebirge und Wasserfälle angeschaut haben. Danach ging es zu einem Wasserfall, welcher gigantisch hoch war, um die 180 Meter um genau zu sein. Zurück auf der Aida sind wir abends noch zu einer Silent - Party gegangen, das war vielleicht ein Spaß.Read more
