    Day 7: a well-worth detour

    June 13, 2016 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Another warm day and no rain until a bit after my tent was pitched at night! I like this trend and hope it continues on ;)
    Back in the wild I met just a few sheep today. The hike started through forests which I really enjoyed after being above the tree line for so long. I crossed several creeks and rivers, one with a suspension bridge and one I dipped into as a cold but fun (and much needed, hehe) bath - try taking a 5°C shower ;-). So even though I felt a little slow today, my detour was totally worth it!
    The second half of the day was back on top of a fjell with gorgeous views all around. I have to make myself stop and just enjoy the surroundings sometimes, not to forget on what a beautiful adventure I am on.
    Now I'm sitting in my tent, under the rain, eating tomato soup and Indian chicken stew. Yum!

    Day 18: let it rain, rain, rain

    June 24, 2016 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    I had my first truly Norwegian day: rainy without an end in sight ;-)

    Today, the trail lead me down into a valley with many lakes, relentlessly filled with melting water coming from the mountains this time of year. There, I met an archeologist who with his team is doing excavations on the little islands, finding traces of early settlements or hunting and fishing grounds from thousands of years ago.

    I then crossed another mountain range, while it was raining in long streaks and yet hasn't stopped. My equipment stayed dry well, but my boots were slowly soaked by early afternoon. As dry feet are the most essential for a fun and enjoyable hike, I am staying in a self-serve hiking hut tonight, with a fire going and all things drying very comfortably.

    Can't wait to slide into my warm socks and boots tomorrow :)

    Day 19: after the rain comes the sun

    June 25, 2016 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    After a very short night (one of the people in the hut was snoring as if cutting an entire forest with a chain saw), I woke up to perfect weather. I left just after 7 and had a good hike over a mountain range into a beautiful valley, where the Royal Norwegian horses are kept and trained. I had a fantastic lunch and took a shower at one of the ranches and then disappeared into the wilderness again, walking through lush forests in great weather.

    Tonight I'm camping right by a lake. It's sunny still which means I got to do laundry and am feeling warm, clean and dry (which is "wanderer" for HAPPY :) )
