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. After spending a few days in Oslo I was excited to hit the road again. This is my adventure driving from Oslo to...

After my amazing hike on the Trolltunga (See vlog 6 : Hiking the Trolltunga) it was time to visit the beautiful little eco-hostel and farm Eplet Apple & Bed and visit Geiranger Fjord. I stayed here for 6 days and during that time I explored the beautiful landscapes of the Solvorn Fjord. The hostel is just a few hundred meters away...

During my 30,000 km road trip through Europe, I had the opportunity to climb the Trolltunga. It was a race against the clock as the weather that week would only have one day of sun. Meanwhile, I was still in Bergen, therefore I jumped in the car and raced towards Odda where I would start my adventure. In this...
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...
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...
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.. That is something new, I thought. I don't have...
Hiking the famous Trolltunga had been on my bucket list for a long time. I had seen many photos and videos of people standing on the well known rock, which is located in the municipality of Odda in Hordaland county. Trolltunga (meaning troll tongue) can be found on the northside of the beautiful Ringedalsvatnet lake at 700 meter high. After informing with...

Even Oslo, Norway can become easy for the budget wise traveler to navigate. Here are some ways that you can make the city easier...
With over 20 islands, the Gothenburg Archipelago is a beautiful collection of islands right in front of the city of Gothenburg. 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...
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...
