I visited the south archipelago and will discuss how I got to most of the islands for just € 18,- and spend a great day wildlife & nature sightseeing, eating delicious foods and checking out the local history...
It was time to head north or else I would stay in Norway forever! There is just so much to see that you could easily spend weeks traveling on just the south and west part of Norway.  After hiking the Trolltunga I made a quick 5 day stop in Solvorn where the Eplet Bed and Apple Farm is located. I recharged my...
My time on the Lofoten Islands was coming to an end and there was one final Norwegian landmark that was on my bucketlist; The North Cape. The North Cape is often considered the northernmost point of Europe. On the top of the cliff there is a beautiful viewing point of the merger of the Norwegian sea and the Barents...

Visiting the Lofoten has always been my dream. I arrived in the port of Sørvågen at 6.30 AM after taking a 3-hour ferry from Bodø. It was a early trip, but once I arrived it was all worth it. As it was still early on a Friday morning and my room was not available until 2.00 PM I decided to drive...

My next step was suppose to be taking the ferry from Rostock to Gedser to enter Denmark. After a lot of remarks and feedback of people they mentioned I...
