Some South Norway pictures
« on: 24.05. 2016 12:19 »
Had a nice drive across the central mountains and back, holiday combined with picking up a satellite dish (to be used for good reception of all available UK channels, out of the official sat footprint here, so size matters).

Thought you may like some of the sceneries, maybe inspiration for anyone thinking of a bike tour in the area.

Certainly a beautiful part of the world. Summer on a A10 would be magic.

Expensive country. If chosing hotels + restaurants be ready for some serious money evaporation.
Much better, camping + food\drink from local grocery.

Weather in summer months is hot and fine (cold nights on mountains), but of course can be periods of rain.

Petrol expensive, regular large discounts to be found, top up tank whenever one sees a good price. Many toll roads for cars, bikes are free.

Guaranteed great seceneries, example coming off a ferry in Oslo, Kristiansand, Larvik, several roads over the central mountains, could take one route to the west fjords, do the vest coast\fjords for some time, then go back over another mountain road. Or ferry to Bergen from DK, travel around the fjords, and back over the mountains to a ferry from south somewhere. Sadly no more ferry Bergen-Newcastle, I would have liked to drive around Scotland.
