    Day 33: lazy girl

    July 9, 2016 in Norway

    I enjoyed a lazy day, hanging out in the cabin with a big breakfast and at Finse hotel for a yummy local reindeer burger for lunch. Did lots of reading, some packing and a deep cleaning and re-water-proofing of my boots. That's all I got for today ;-)

    And a sunset picture of the lake.

    Day 31: shorts and tshirt day

    July 7, 2016 in Norway

    How happy I was to wake up to sunshine, which lastet till around 5pm! It was beautifully warm, no snow on the way and I was able to wash and dry some clothes, take a bath in a river, and enjoy the bright day.

    There was a beautiful mountain hotel (on the ridge in picture 4) on the way, where I got a smoked salmon and scrambled eggs lunch and two complimentary pieces of pie because the hostess decided I must need the energy after walking for so many days ;-)

    I also bought half a pound of fresh locally made Brunost, Norwegian goat cheese, or in my family known as caramel cheese (a lifelong addiction of mine). It's much to carry, but worth every gram, haha. Luckily, Merten and Elena are joining me in a few days to help finish it!

    Day 32: hiking for beginners

    July 8, 2016 in Norway

    It was so warm and comfortable at night, I slept extra long and didn't start hiking until 9:30. I had no rush, because the 27km would be fairly quick. My hike lead me along a bike pass all day, so there was no challenging uphill climb, no steep descents and no navigation necessary. I saw about 30 bikers, making their way towards Flåm, looks like a beautiful ride!

    It was sunny all day again, but the absolute highlight was the tiny post office (also the train station) at Finse (a "town" of 5 huts), where I got to pick up my next and last resupply package. It's feels just like Christmas, a large box full of food, my favorite snacks, a few necessaries and licorice :)

    I'm staying at a hiker's cabin (picture 6), as I'm not allowed to camp on this side of the lake. But I'm not complaining, it means shower and drying room so i can wash some clothes. Maybe tomorrow I'll camp over there as I wait for my brother and close friend to join me here on Sunday.

    Oslo/Bergen - Train

    September 12, 2015 in Norway

    There's a 7 hour train ride between Oslo and Bergen, and I heard it was one of the most beautiful train trips in the world (thanks, Adrian!). Wow, they weren't exaggerating!
    Farms, then forested hills and mountains, with a few lakes thrown in for good measure. Eventually we got up high enough that there was snow around, then slowly descended again, often following a river. Just amazing, highly recommended!

    Bonus: if you buy tickets far enough in advance this train costs only 250 NOK (currently ~$50 NZD).
