  • Day5


    February 27 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 0 °C

    Nach 1147 km Strecke, gerechnet von gestern früh, endlich wieder eine Hütte für die Nacht. Die geplante Fährfahrt ab Bodø fiel auf Grund hohen Wellengangs aus. Daher haben wir uns um 23:00 Uhr über die E6 und Narvik zu den Lofoten auf gemacht. Der Tages km Zähler zeigt jetzt die o.g. Zahl an.

    Hier kurz unterhalb von Tromsö ist es das erste mal etwas kälter, wir hatten heute Nacht -8 grad.
    In unserem 4-rädrigen Zuhause war es dennoch schön kuschelig...

    Day 481: Southwards from Alta

    June 10, 2018 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 5 °C

    We'd originally planned to have a day off up here and just relax, but with high prices for most things and lots of nice scenery awaiting us on the drive south, we decided to head off today instead. Our next world heritage site is about 18 hours drive south of here, so rather than do it in two days after a day off, we figured to split it in three days and do some sight-seeing on the way.

    So off we went! Overcast skies, as the weather had definitely turned during the night. Not too much rain though thankfully, just sprinkles here and there.

    The road was very dramatic, following the coastlines of the fjords with tall cliffs, epic mountain ranges, snow-covered flanks, pine forests, tumbling waterfalls and bubbling streams, still lakes reflecting everything, and of course red farmhouses. It's impossible to do justice with a camera, particularly an iPhone camera and especially in overcast conditions! But we did our best.

    Despite leaving around 9:30 we didn't arrive at our stop until nearly 5pm. We essentially just picked it out of the book but it was very cheap for a 2-person cabin, only about 18 euros! No bathroom, and it was a bunk bed, but sacrifices can be made! We had dinner in the restaurant as well, which was OK prices but still fairly steep. I had roast lamb and some vegetables, basically RSL club standard and it was I think 14 euros. Like I said, good prices for Norway.

    Update #38

    July 12, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Heute weniger Kilometer gemacht als sonst. Auch wegen den nötigen Arbeiten am Motorrad. Ich habe die Chance im Laden genutzt und auch gleich neue Handschuhe gekauft. Da meine aktuellen Regenhandschuhe nach wenigen Minuten den Regen durchlassen, anstelle ihn zurückzuhalten. Nun habe ich 2 in 1 Handschuhe, was ich bis zum heutigen Tag noch nie gesehen habe. Unten bei Gelb reinschlüpfen ist sommerlich mit gutem Grip, schlüpft man oben bei Blau rein ist er wasserdicht. Hätte ich das früher gewusst, hätte ich nie 2 Paar Handschuhe mitnehmen müssen. 😋

    Bin nun in einem süssen Camping nahe Narvik. Die Küche vom Camping ist super lecker und somit bleibt meine Feldküche für heute einmal geschlossen.

    Today less kilometers than usual traveled. Also because of the necessary work on the bike. I used the opportunity in the store and also bought new gloves. Since my current rain gloves let the rain through after a few minutes, instead of stopping it. Now I have 2 in 1 gloves, which I have never seen until today. Slip in at the yellow part at the bottom it’s a summer glove with good grip, when you slip in at the top on the blue part it is waterproof. Had I known this before, I would never have had to take 2 pairs of gloves with me. 😋

    I'm now in a cozy camping near Narvik. The kitchen of the campsite is delicious, so my field kitchen will be closed for today.
