Where the mountain meets the sea (part 1)

Norway is bursting with beauty. Brenton and I rented a car, and drove north from Bergen to Molde over a period of 9 days. We camped for free along the side of the road, and enjoyed meals made on our handy camping stove. Bringing people to nature is what Norway is all about, and we took advantage of the tourist routes that speckle the country. 

Oslo Opera House by Snohetta - bringing the mountain to the city

Interior

New housing/office development in downtown Oslo - a slice of Japan if you ask me

Crossing a fjord

Urnes Stave Church - dated to 1130

first stop on the Aurlandsfjellet tourist route - gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous


Jotunheimen National Park - hired guide to cross the glacier



Reindeer pavilion by Snohetta - snuggle up and build a fire


Lovely campsite at the road side - the sun fades at 11:30pm

Enjoying our cabin overnight stay - thanks Mari!
