Vlog 5: Making Friends in Norway!


In this episode, I am driving through the beautiful country of Norway. I just stayed for a few days in Oslo and although it is a wonderful big city, it was really expensive (Blogpost: Explore the City of Oslo on a Budget) and I wanted to explore the fjords and nature, Norway had to offer. My route is between Oslo and Bergen (Blogpost: 25.000 Km Europe Road Trip Part 4: Oslo, Bergen and hiking the Trolltungaand I had planned to do the route in one day.


An unexpected turn of events in Norway

On my route I would come across landscapes, fjords, waterfalls, the longest tunnel of Norway and the famous Borgund Stave Church, but just outside of Oslo I experience an unaccepted turn of events. While getting gas at the local gasoline station, a Norwegian gentleman noticed the stickers on Lazy Louie. We started talking and he liked the project so much that he invited me to see a real Norwegian farm.


Drive to Bergen

After having a great few hours at the farm I noticed I still had to drive a lot of kilometers to get to Bergen. And it was already in the afternoon so I had to hurry up a bit. Thankfully, the roads were not busy and driving the longest tunnel of Norway was a very interesting, just lonely, experience. The good thing is that once you exit the beautiful fjords of Aurlands appear.

  1. Loving the video. I love road tripping in Norway, I was at the top around Kirkenes this year in the winter and driving on ice was fantastic!

  2. It looks like such an incredible drive The waterfalls flowing off the mountains just look spectacular. Can’t wait to visit Norway. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I only got to visit Oslo when I went to Norway. You got such nice weather and the photos really show how beautiful Norway is. Looks like the perfect place to road trip.

  4. The road-trip is such an epic project! I visit Norway often, but never been to Oslo…often end of going to Stavanger or the Flords. Need to plan for Bergen too next time 🙂

  5. Sounds like a cool trip Niels. Lucky you, you get to see so many countries in such a short period of time. Well done!

  6. It’s amazing how you meet random people on the road and get invited to their place afterward! Plus a road trip with such a cool car definitely adds to the awesomeness of the trip!
