Opening the curtains of our friend’s beautiful little home in the Fjords on the morning of our ninth day in Norway we were super excited to find some blue skies and a beaming sun greeting us. Gone were the rain clouds for now; hurray! But not all was glee. We sadly had to say goodbye… Continue reading Hiking on Mount Hoven and driving along the Gamle Strynefjellsvegen
