Travel part 2: Norway  
The second part of our travel brought us to Norway. We never meant to go to Norway, but when we found ourselves close to the border we just decided to go. Norway was an amazingly beautiful country, full of mountains, nicely coloured houses, strange skies, mist and fog. I liked it a lot.

People in Noway were extremely pleasant, very helpful and they all spoke perfect English. Also important: people in Norway were EXTREMELY goodlooking! Our campingsite host kind of looked like a cross between that Russian dude in Sex and the City and a lumberjack or very cool troll. It was the coolest man we ever saw.

Strangely, Norway reminded me of Japan in some ways. A sparse but balanced architecture, the use of colours. A careful picking out of nature in some parks. But it might have just been influenced by my reading Memoirs of a Geisha (I loved it!)

Foodwise, everything was super-expensive and most things didn't really taste too good.

Driving into Oslo is really wild: you make a very steep descent and all of a sudden this enormous city comes into sight! We are not used to mountains at all and were very impressed.

Those two sets of pictures are really inspiring!
I visitited Norway with my family ten years ago, but I must confess that the impressive landscape left a huge mark in my souvenir. Seeing your pictures definitely makes me want to go back there!

Holidays are the best thing in life! :) Makes your mind peaceful, curious, and opened to beauty! ;)

Thanks! Yes, Norway really stays in your mind I think. We want to go back as well :)

Your photography is like a window into my deepest fantasies. For real. They give me so much inspiration. You are extremely lucky, right now. ;) I wish I could go to all of these places!

Thanks! I think living in Europe it's easier to travel to all these countries, but then again living in America, with cheap air travel and so many different landscapes, I bet it can be really awesome as well :)

True, but seeing America, especially Nevada, day-to-day, can get pretty boring. Some places I find to be more attractive than others. I really miss London. ;__; And England in general. I still have plans to visit Ireland one of these days, where some of my heritage lies. :) But I'd really like to visit the Netherlands and all these places too. Extremely special. Rich in culture and history. ♥

You were here and I didn't even know! :)

I glow in the praise, hehe :) So happy to hear you had a good time! The pictures are lovely.

You live in Norway, I didn't even know! Yes, it definitely deserves praise :) Of all Scandinavian countries, we definitely liked it most, and thought the people were the most friendly. We are already planning out next Norway trip, maybe driving through the country for some weeks or so :)

That's just awesome. I, too, love driving through the country - it never ceases to surprise me how varied the landscape is. If you like mountains, you're up for some good times.
Let me know when you're in Oslo nest then, I'll treat you to a coffee - or something! :-D

That would be great! I'll definitely let you know :)
