North of Norway -the ferry trips

Yes, it's raining in Trondheim again... 14 degrees and rain. It's nice, actually. It was getting a bit dry and dusty. Syd asked in a comment earlier what's considered to be warm in my part of the world. That depends on the time of year, of course. But for summer, june - august: everything warmer than 16 C is lovely. The last few weeks we have had many days with temperatures between 20 - 25 C, and that is wonderful! While this type of weather is shitty.

So, to the photos: From Trondheim we flew to Tromsø, and then we had to take a bus and two ferries to get to the place where my girlfriend's parents live. The weather was changing all the time while we travelled: sometimes rain, sometimes sunny. Here are some photos from the ferry trips. As you can see it sometimes looks like the mountains are holding up the sky! Or it looks like the clouds are eating the mountains:-) The mountains are different further north, they are sharper, more ragged maybe? The mountains we saw between Trondheim and Oslo are more rounded.



The camera isn't straight - just like me:-)




The clouds are swallowing the mountains




Not very crowded around here




The second ferry trip





Almost there. After the ferry it was just 20 minutes by car to our destination. I'll probably post some more photos one of these days... ;-)

If I'd known the photos were this stunning, I would have pestered you more than I did.

Something about this landscape speaks to me. It's prolly saying "too cold for your country-ass," but, I'm drawn to it nonetheless. Just beautiful.

Thanks a million.

Love the pictures - worth the wait, I say. Although all that talk of the clouds eating the mountains has made me hungry. Clearly it's time for lunch . . .

Thanks everyone! The sun is shining again, so I'm off to buy ice cream, buy my working girlfriend a delicious coffee to lessen her pain of having to stay inside, and then I'm going swimming!:-D See you on the next rainy day.
