Korczowa-Krakovets border
The moment was finally there. After traveling through almost ten European Union countries (Norway not being included) it was time for a real test. Crossing the border from Poland into the Ukraine (Korczowa-Krakovets border) has a notorious reputation for being the worst and longest border cross from Europe.

I was walking around Bergen when I came across a ticket shop for the famous fjord cruises. Between all the big offers, on a small  A-4 paper there was a sign that said; Learn how to make apple juice and sauces. Visit the Eplet Bed and Apple farm in Solvorn! Hmm..

If you ever visited Denmark you will think mainly of two things: Beautiful architecture and expensive tourist activities. It is indeed a problem for many tourists that the cost of going out for dinner, visiting the museums and zoos and having an alcoholic beverage comes at a higher cost compared to the rest of Europe. Good thing, I figured...
Driving from Oslo to Bergen
Driving from Oslo to Bergen - Tyrifjorden, Aurlandsfjorden & Stave Churches The route between Oslo and Bergen has the reputation for being one of the most beautiful roads (either by car or train) on this planet.
