Följ mig

Ni som gillar mina bilder kan följa mig till min nya blogg Kuriosakabinett. Vad har hänt sen sist? Vi har flyttat till Oslo och jag studerar foto och bildbehandling.


Lindesnes fyr

Åkte ut till Lindesnes fyr. Vi trodde inte att det skulle vara mycket turister där. Fel hade vi. Dom hade till och med inträde. Lite tjuriga blev vi men tänkte eftersom vi tagit oss dit så kan vi lika gärna betala. Det var ju värt pengarna.






Det var när vi träffade båten Elias som vi fick valuta för pengarna.


Det gäller att ha barnasinnet i behåll.






Fina reflektioner inne i fyren.






Det blåste rejält där ute. Vi satt och tittade på en fiskmås som bestämt skulle flyga mot vinden.


En man satt för sig själv och spelade munspel.


Vi spanade i kikaren.




Under andra världskriget byggde nazisterna massa underjordiska betongtunnlar som vi gick runt i.




Vi sov parkeringen till fyren tillsammans med ett helt gäng med tyska och holländska turister i husbilar. När det blev kväll rattades det in på parabolerna och alla låste in sig. Vår bil stod lite ut ur mängden om vi säger så:)





Operation Freshman

Efter Stavanger svängde vi in vid en skylt som det stod krigsminne på. Det blev ett fin fint ställe att stå en natt. Som grannar hade vi får som gick på ängen med små bjällror runt halsen. Väldigt idylliskt.




Enligt skylten var det en aktion mot att tyskarna skulle få tag i tungvatten i Norge som dom startade Operation Freshman. Den misslyckades och planet krashade.


Eftersom vi ändå stod där tänkte vi att vi kan ta den lilla stigen för att se vad det var. Men efter ha gått genom en myr och John traskade rakt genom ett jordgetingbo so vände vi om.

Stavanger

I Stavangen kryllade det av streetart. Vi kunde inte bestämma vilken vi tyckte bäst om.










Vi hittade helt plötsligt en jätte färglad gata...


...med riktigt mysigt cafe. 


Vi traskade ner till hamnen.



Verkar inte vara så populärt med att ta bort tatueringar med laser i Stavanger.


Sen hittade vi ännu fler streetart.



Skudeneshavn och Haugesund

Inget är gratis nu för tiden.


I Haugesund hittade vi fina maneter.


För att undvika fler djupa underjordiska tunnlar (och en överhettad motor) så tog vi en annan väg till Stavanger. Vi körde ner till Skudeneshavs för att ta färjan därifrån till Mjerkavik. Skudeneshavn var en mysg liten hamnstad. Men såklart inte med fiskebåtar utan svindyra båtar med stroppiga oslobor.


John hjälpte ett par att lägga till.


Vi satt på en bänk och fick besök av en hel familj.








I Norge är husen vita med fiskfjällstak. Jag är lite förälskad i det.


Fin utsikt från färjan.

Bergen

I was tired of the rain as you can see.


Waterfalls along the road. This is pretty much how the highways looks in Norway. Its narrow roads and tunnels.


For all of you who call me Hest. Look i found my hometown!


This has to be the biggest camper we have seen in our life.


Det är nog det mest pryda utviket som finns. Bara lite hud på magen. Thats it. 


In Bergen we droped off Tasia who wanted to go home. We had heard that Bergen was suppost to be the rainiest city in Norway. But when we arrived the sun was shining. We went down to the harbor and looked at the old wooden houses.








A church door with bunny ears.



Geiranger



Its july and there is still snow left on the mountains.


We never stoped in Geiranger beacuse the city itself is pretty boring. We continued up an other mountain to towards Sryn. John found a miniramp and we got an excuse to take a break.






We got pretty high up when the car overheated and didnt want to go any higher. So we tried to let the engine cool itself down but evrey 3 minutes the car overheated again. We slowly took us down to a camping that was close to the road. Tried to call the emergancy number i got from our insurance company. But guess what? They had given me the wrong number, a number that didnt exist. We were lucky and they had internet there and got a hold of it anyway. But we didnt want to spend alot of money on towing before we were really sure there was nothing we could do. So we let the car cool itself down for a whole night and thought we solved the problem. But when we arrived in Geiranger it overheated again.


But a phonecall to Johns dad and some instructions later it was solved. We had got air into the cooling system. It took us a couple of hours to get it out. Then we realised that we where surrounded with mountains on all sides. The only solution was to take an expensive boat. So we did, didn´t want to take the risk that the car broke down again. Oh and during all of these it was raining and cold. Not exactly the best weather to fix a car in.


Getting some cooling air on the engine.



During our stay we got to see more of Geiranger then we wanted. But there could be worse places to be stranded on.






The boat was money well spent.
John looked like a sailor in my dads old raincoat. 




They call it the bottle waterfall. Wonder why?








An old church.


We found a place we could sleep on the other side of the fjord. I was free and had a nice backdrop. It was only the weather that was wrong.



On the road to Geiranger

Cute norwegian busstop


We took one of the many ferries you have to take to get somewhere in Norway. They are really expansive but when you get a view like this you soon forget about it.





A random house along the road.


We ran out of water one day when we were cooking dinner but found a stream with really clear green/turquoise water.


wherever you go in Norway you get an amazing view.









Then we drived a little bit further and had to stop again beacuse of the beautiful scenery.




Pär and Tasia in the backseat.


Then the bad weather started. It followed us. Found a place called Aidswater. Didn´t sound temting to take a swim there even if it was nice weather.




You have to be careful so you dont hit a cow when you are driving up in the mountains.




Johns dad lives on an island. We found a place with the same name.


Camping people scare us. Some people take it to the extreme. Why do they even leave their home if they park their caravan like this?



Atlanterhavsveien

We went on the famous Atlanterhavsveien. It was a bit of a disappointment. It was so short that it felt like if you blinked your eyes you would miss it. But it was really beautiful.



We stoped along the way and John took the opportunity to skate.





Trondheim




"Today we are closing at 4 beacuse of the sun:) "



Tested on locals in Ljungaverk, Sweden




In Trondheim we met up with Pär. He joined us a couple of days on the trip.


He got the exellent idea to clean his ears in the middle of the street with one of those earcandles made out of beeswax.


He slept in the hammock.


And this is how it looks in the van when we transformed the sofa into a bed.

Hell

On our way to Trondheim we found Hell.
