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 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…

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…

Bodø – Day 1 (24.6.2021)

The first of my short holidays – or long weekends – however you wanna call them. I booked a 3 night stay in Bodø and then a train trip down to Trondheim with the Nordlandsbana. Said to be a great train ride. The ticket for that was a birthday present from my parents. First day…
