in the 6 years of living in norway, i’ve managed to somehow do most of my traveling outside of the country (20 new countries!). as my time here is nearing an end though, i’ve made it a priority to visit friends and travel in-country. my journey began at 4.38am last friday, as kristin and i stepped on the train in skien. 2 trains, 1 bus and 8 hours later, we arrived in ål to meet ragnhild and britt solveig. over the next few days we hiked up a mountain, visited the sites in town, ate incredible traditional norwegian food (småmat, lefsekling, rjomegraut, spekemat, lapper) and spent late nights around the fire at the cabin.
here are a few of the sites i saw:
ragnhild and i are now in bergen where the next leg of the journey begins.
uff, i love norway.
