Ok. Some tours come my way without planning it. To complete the furniture in my livingroom I needed 2 armchairs from the same series as my sofa. Saved the money and wanted to order today… But IKEA decided to take it out of the system and a call to the hotline got me the information, that I have to go to a store to find the last ones. No orders possible…
Nearest IKEA is Trondheim… nothing. Oslo… nothing. Bergen an Stavanger 1. But the drive takes days and is expensive thanks to a lot of ferries.
Found an IKEA with 7 chairs left… And I am on tour to get it… In Jönköping, Sweden. 900 km from Molde. Booked two hotels. I have to stay in Sweden for 24 hours for import regulations.
Now I am sitting at the Thon Hotel Gardermoen, close to Oslo airport. 6,5 hours drive nonstop. Nice and simple hotel and cheap with 595 kroners. Had to hot the brakes once on the tour down – the moose didn´t look while crossing the street and had no lights. Talk about bloodpressure.
Big room at the hotel. Big TV, bathroom – perfect. Leaving after breakfast tomorrow for the last 5 hour drive.
