|This is a replica of a real viking ship. They used authentic viking tools and hand carved it for many years. :) It lives in Tønsberg. Totally tubular, right?!|
It's been quite a while since I caught up on everything going on. I've managed to stay quite busy!
I'm not even sure where to start. My spirits were kind of down for almost a week but I'm feeling good about things right now. It's 2 am and I'm at another random hostel I'm not paying for. They are a wonderful resource for internet, warmth and strange people to look at.
So... Last time I wrote I was in Tønsberg, Norway hanging out, right? Yes. That's what was going on. I was off to the marina because my friend/host in Tønsberg was about to buy a sweet wooden sail boat so we went to check it out and make sure it was still there.... or something.
|You can kind of see the boat ... and the ocean. :)|
It was a week or so after that I saw a random post on CouchSurfing for someone headed up the coast of Norway just like I was hoping to do. So I wrote the person and off I went with my host from Tonsberg. We ended up hitchhiking from Tonsberg to Kongsberg and met up with the cool driver dude and off to Haukeli we went! Awesome! Here's a bit of photos:
|This does NOT do the water intensity justice!|
|Pretty cool! This style of painting is specifically from the Telemark County where we were.|
|I loved their decor! So charming... I mean, I'd be happy to be Santa's helper! ;)|
|These are the beautiful people we stayed with, my Tønsberg host and our awesome ride!|
|the boring ride there...|
|Real life Tonka trucks! Sa-weeeet!! :D|
|Gothenburg's umbrella didn't stand a chance against Bergen's wind and rain... haha!!|
|Bergen is basically like Disneyland. It has phenomenal fountains and parks and, and, and.... I enjoyed it a lot.|
|Old school Bergen!|
From Bergen we headed to Førde:
|...another boring one.....|
|Blah blah... I don't know what to write. Its beauty was every where!|
|We had to stop for road construction. I could think of a worse place to stop. You?|
|We made it to freezing Førde! The shoes were only a couple sizes to big.|
So, I've decided to break this post up because there is SO much to cover. Stay tuned to see what happens after this commercial break!
