Up and away

And then the day was here. I was the one driving to Besseggen and I have to admit it was a bit difficult for the GPS, since we didn’t really have a specific address. So we had to go in for a address close by and find the way from there. But we did make it.

Then we took a minibus in to Gjendesheim where we had to wait for the next boat. Then we took the boat over to Memurubu. Here you can put up a tent for free or as me and my mom did stay at the lovely hotel there.

We had a lovely dinner in real norwegian stile and a very cute room with a lovely view. A good start. We had a early night so we would be able to get up early the next day.

The Roadtrip

Hello again. I have now moved away from London and this time I will bring you on my first ever road trip all by myself with Dave. We travelled from Oslo to Vaasa in Finland in my grandmothers tiny car. A awful car to drive, but we ended up loving it ❤

We started as early in the morning as we cud and drove from my house in Oslo. Since I was the only one with license I had to drive all the way. It was sunny and beautiful and we got our GPS that showed us the way to Sweden. Our first stop was by a beautiful lake out in nowhere. The GPS had led us out on a dirt road in the middle of the forest and here we stopped by the lake to enjoy the view. After a little rest we drove away from the silent and stress free forest and out on the motor way.

The next stop was at a McDonalds in Karlstad, on the border between Norway and Sweden. It is always difficult to go of track with a GPS so it tock us a while to figure out how to get to the McDonalds, but in the end we got our burger and the car had a chance to cool down a little bit. Poor old thing.

After filling up with gas we realist that we would end up coming very late to Stockholm if we didn´t move alone fast. So it was no more breaks before we arrived in Stockholm. We slept in a tent in the garden of a Swedish friend of Dave. She was really nice and the weather was good enough to sleep outside with no problems. A nice night sleep absolutely. But then again I was so tired after all that driving that I cud have fallen a sleep anywhere by then.
