Day 17: sharing the trailJune 23, 2016 in Norway
Sharing is caring - and a lot of fun! Today, I shared my trail with more bugs for a few more hours before they disappeared as I climbed higher in altitude, with lots of melting water choosing the trails as their temporary river beds, with sheep who very clearly disapproved of me disturbing their afternoon, and finally with Olaf the reindeer who walked along with me for a good while, keeping a good distance. Here's proof (if you can find him): https://goo.gl/photos/EY2SdvabNePEkZcQ9
I'm camping in a beautiful spot surrounded by mountains, heading back down into the forest tomorrow. Ooh and happy midsummer, which Norwegians celebrate today as the longest day of the year!
Funny moment of the day: since I just restocked on food for the next 13 days, in pretty "back-heavy". I wanted to take a picture of a lovely flower near the trail. As I kneel down, a fly flies in my face, I try to shoo it away, lose balance, and land on my back like a little beetle. I had to laugh out loud, but only a few fellow beetles heard and barely took notice ;-)
