Tucked Away in Norway
James and I are holed away in our hostel as the weather floats around 50 degrees and on the verge of rain (snow is forecast tonight.) This part of Norway is super scenic (take a look at my photos for evidence of that.) We took a boat through Geirangerfjord yesterday, where we passed numerous waterfalls; products of the melting snowcaps left on top of the mountains. Hiking in Geiranger, the trail took us into a patch filled with llamas and goats (These are just educated guesses on my part; they could’ve been other animals entirely.) The sun doesn’t set until about 30 minutes after midnight, and the hostel is only filled with a few occupants, none of which we ever see. So James and I have just been eating pasta and marinara sauce in an empty kitchen as we watch the sun fall at 11 at night.
It is nice to be away for a few days, but to be quite honest, this city boy is happy about leaving. National Geographic named Norway’s fjords the most beautiful destination in the world, and I agree; they’re truly majestic. But it will be nice to head to a new place; a city no less.
Amsterdam tomorrow. Until then, we wait for our overnight bus.
