Norway Trip: Day Three Sweden to Norway

3rd July 2013

This morning we woke up to the most beautiful apartment bnb ever! The bed was magnificent, like sleeping on a cloud. I needed a good sleep, and that is what I got! Harri and I shared a room. It was the largest room, incuding a sofa and a coffee table. There was a lounge area, where there was a huge sofa and a plasma tv, btw we did not have time to enjoy this area
:( There was also a kitchen, and a bathroom. THE BATHROOM! No words to describe the amazingness, except to say that it was probably the size of theplace we stayed in Umea... Hehe.

The outside of the bnb, getting ready to leave.

The breakfast! We were served like royalty by the manager of the bnb. He had placed fruit cut up in the bowls, and this amazing version of a breakfast from Texas. It had bacon, tomato, scrambled eggs and some other amazing stuff:) It was soo delish we stored the left overs for the trip.

Against our wishes, we had to force our selves to leave this delicacy! However, we were so looking forward to our journey to Norway, so we gave the key to the manager and said our farewells.

Next we drove to Ostersund, where we went for a walk. There was a lake there, which was the five largest in Sweden, and on a huge hill next to the lake there were spots of houses all the way through.

Next we stopped in Åre, a place closer to Norway. I had initially thought to stop here because there are lovely walking trails, according to a brochure I had found. We stoped firstly at a petrol station. Luckily there was free wifi there, since Harri found that close to this area was the widest water fallin Sweden! We had to then go and see that:)

The water was really rough, so we could hardly hear eachother talking! S glad we went there! One of THE highlights of the trip:)

Still 98 km to the Norway border...huh. The rode we took was extra scenic, and the mountains became even larger as we neared the border. Extremely different to Finland, and on some mountains we even saw snow.

We had to stop at a shop just before the border, because Norway is meant to be really expensive. The most expensive place in Scandinavia actually. While there we filled up on fruit and yogurt. While walking back to the car we saw that most of the other cars were from Norway! Hahaha... Just goes to show!

Crossed the border!

First glimpse of Norway. Little huts with grass on the rooves. We noticed that further along the road most of the cottages did have grass growing on their rooves! Well, I guess they needed something to fully indentify the change from Sweden to Norway:) Cute.

We drove through numerous tunnels, and some of them were 5 minutes long! We started to fell very clostrofobic, I was wondering how people would survive in the tunnel from england to france!! Ahh.

Now you ar uptodate!

Till tomorrow,



P.S Sorry that I am a tad behind. My internet access has not been going so well, and I have been sleeping at eleven each night finishing the post for each day!
