September 2018

Fjords, waterfalls, spectacular scenery, mountains and beaches – these have been our constant companions in Norway for the last four months.

For three months we were based around Skudeneshavn in Western Norway. We left there and our last four weeks have been spent driving from south-western Norway to the north of Norway and south through Sweden.

We drove many of the Norwegian scenic routes. These took us past spectacular fjords and waterfalls, winding roads and countless moments of awe-inspiring scenery. We were lucky enough to witness the marvel of the Northern Lights, an unexpected magic, and discover the raw beauty of the Lofoten Islands.

In Sweden, we booked ourselves into an Icehotel for a night. Now that was an experience. The ice designs were breathtaking as was the temperature! We learnt about the Sami culture and got up close and personal with the local reindeer.

Travelling and living as frugally as possible we spent quite a few nights sleeping in the car to stretch our funds. Being on the move and constantly exploring has caused us to be a bit behind on the blogging front.

In a couple of days, we will be arriving in France to begin our seven-month house sit in the beautiful Dordogne region.

Having a base for the winter will enable us to focus our efforts on writing. We need to catch up on both our travels in Norway and our year in the campervan travelling Europe.
