Norway scenery


It’s lunchtime and I’m at the cafe in Lakselv. Last night I had a good chat with the guy at the cabin lodge. I was going to take the high road across to the E6, which is shorter and looks more interesting. He told me there are roadworks half way across, with long sections of mud and clay. It put me off a bit so I decided to go the long way around.

This morning I met his dad, who was a nice chap and said I’d be fine. So the high road is not to be missed. I’ve just come off it and it was fantastic! I’ve had rain, snow, sleet, hail and sunshine in the last 3 hours. It’s cold at around 4°C but the electrics are keeping me warm enough. (Just!). It’s just under 200 km to Nordkapp, which will be enough for one day!

The scenery has been epic. I made show progress at first, as every time I came round a bend I’d think “wow – take a picture”. Around the next bend the scenery was even better, and so on. Below is just one example, I’ll post a couple of others in a moment.

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
