NORWAY

Right.

At the end of June this year, I went to Norway. I’ve left it a while to write up, because to be perfectly honest, I know it’s going to take a while. So let’s take it in baby steps…

Why did I go to Norway?

After my road trip to America last year, where I saw many different, amazing things – met different people, saw different scenery, ate different food… I wanted to do it all over again. Sadly, I couldn’t afford to return to America, but I had the bug. I knew I wanted to go somewhere beautiful, where you wanted to just drive and drive and drive to just keep seeing more. I just didn’t know where that was.

So, after a fair amount of googling, I found an article about the 10 best road trips in the world. And at the top, was Norway. A place I’d never considered in my life. I’m from the UK, so it’s really not that far away, but it isn’t generally on the top of people’s lists.

For many reasons, this is why it was perfect. It felt almost like untouched land (to me anyway).

So, for my 21st Birthday, myself and three of my best friends went to Norway.

As I said, we knew NOTHING about the place. All we’d been told by friends and family was that it was beautiful, but expensive. This wasn’t particularly helpful.

The article I read mentioned the Atlantic Road and I knew that I couldn’t go to Norway without going to Oslo, so with these two points in mind and all of the internet at my finger tips, I decided on the other places we wanted to visit and organised the following:

DAYS 1/2

Oslo

DAY 3

Flam

DAY 4

Bergen

DAY 5

Alesund

DAY 6

Trondheim

DAY 7

Lillehammer

DAY 8

Back to Oslo/home

It was amazing. And surprisingly, not as expensive as you might think.

We stayed mostly in cabins throughout the trip, with a couple of hotels and apartments in between. I’ll do a write up of each place individually.

For now, if you have any questions, feel free to ask! Though I may answer them in the next few posts.
