    Wild camp SW of Vardø

    July 2, 2017 in Norway

    We'd decided to make the trek to Vardø, Norway's Easternmost town. From teeth chattering chilly, the weather turned with a warm wind that brought a 24°C t-shirt day! Over the treeless rough ground we frequently saw reindeer, sheep and plenty of rocks that from a distance could have been either of the former.

    It was another long day travelling but we found a lovely area of rough ground a decent way off the quiet main road and looking out over the Barents Sea. Pretty much a soon a we arrived, Will donned his swim shorts and made his way down the bank, over the snow, (yes, snow!) to the rocky shore. Vicky watched from the warmth of the land while he made his way excruciatingly slowly through the uneaven shallows and plunged into the water, emerging 2 seconds later and making his way rather more quickly back to the van!

    We spent the evening looking out over the bay and it was only after a while that we realised the landmass we could see over the other side was Russia! We can't visit Russia because we have no Visas but it was still cool to look over and see it!

    Closer to the van, we got to watch a pair of well camouflaged Golden Plovers feeding in the scrub. We'd never knowingly seen them before, but their feathers really did look a greeny gold in the evening light.

    Vardø

    January 24 in Norway

    16:00Uhr kommen wir in Vardø an. Hier ist es doch bei Minus 15 Grad schon relativ warm 😉 Leise rieselt der Schnee, die Flocken tanzen vor unserem Fenster.

    Aus 1Stunde Aufenthalt werden nur 45min weil die Finnmarken die Verspätung wieder reinholen muss. Also bleiben wir besser auf dem Schiff.Pünktlich 16:45Uhr geht's weiter. Es folgt wieder die Strecke über's offene Meer. Hoffentlich stürmt es nicht wieder so wie letzte Nacht!Read more
