Northern Norway – Day 5 (13.07.2021)

Time to go home. This time with SAS via Oslo. Filled up the car at the last gas station before the airport. Got some looks for filling 3,5 liters.^^ The flight to Oslo takes 2 hours. Thanks to my private inflight-entertainment system time flies by. They even have started with serving coffee again. Like that….

Northern Norway – Day 4 (12.07.2021)

After the long drive yesterday this will be the opposite. Stay local and look around Kirkenes. After a nice breakfast I stay in my room doing some stuff I had to do with my bank – more leisure time. Lunch at the local Thai Food Truck. Ok food. Not too expensive. But after that was…

Northern Norway – Day 3 (11.07.2021)

Today is a driving day. After breakfast and some room made sandwiches for the trip I am off west. Todays goal is the national tourist road “Varander”. The road is 160 km long and starts at Varangerbotn all the way to Hamningberg. On the way I want to film the drive, collect geocaches from the…

Northern Norway – Day 2 (10.07.2021)

A good nights sleep and time to get up and eat breakfast. I have opted for the latest time for breakfast, that was a mistake. I should know that I wake up early on holidays. So after I took a free bicycle from the hotel and found some geocaches I could finally start the day…

Northern Norway – Day 1 (09.07.2021)

And again it was time to travel inside of Norway. Burn some more bonus points from SAS. Traveling to a place I have not been before, and which is not the first choice of holiday destination for me under normal circumstances. Kirkenes, at the Finnish-Russian border (on the Norwegian side of course). 4 nights in…

Flight home (with surprise) (28./29.6.2021)

Up to get breakfast – which was a mistake. I mean, the hotel was a mistake. To shorten the narration: the worst breakfast ever. I felt like in a institution, no effort… go to Tripadvisor and read my review. 😀 The hotel is (despite its name) NOT at the airport. I knew that, but It…

Train ride Bodø – Værnes (27.6.2021)

Time to say good bye to Bodø and take the second main part of the trip. The train ride from Bodø to Trondheim. Or to be more precise: Stjørdal. I have to take the plane tomorrow, so a ride all the way to Trondheim and back to the airport the other day would have been…

Bodø – Day 3 (26.6.2021)

Another day in Bodø. After breakfast I wanted to explore the city. Not so much to explore, but again with geocaching you get around. The transport alternative of choice was an eBike of the same company I had rented the car from. Placed at bike standsaround the city. Use the app, unlook the bike and…

Bodø – Day 2 (25.6.2021)

Time for a small tour. Breakfast at the hotel. Very nice buffet. Friendly staff. Nothing to complain at all. That is a good start. The bed was not as perfect as I like it (to soft). But a great view from the 13th floor after getting up. I did some research on the net before…
