Crossing Norway – In The Narrowest Part

I haven’t posted much in the last few weeks.

The reason being that I’ve been lucky enough to walk across Norway.

Before you get too impressed, though, I should mention that the crossing happened in width, not in length.

And it happened in a narrow part of Norway, between Stjørdal and Sweden.

But, nevertheless, we walked 130 km in a week, and I’m quite proud of that.

To kind of summarize the whole week, I decided to make a drawing out of it.

And there are quite a few references.

First of all, the rainbow is made out of the colors of Norways most popular hiking chocolate, Kvikk Lunsj, which we ate right after we reached Sweden.

The bugs is a reference to a very demanding stage of our trip, where they followed us for a whole day in 26 degrees.

The mountains are depicting Sylanmassivet, which is a string of beautiful, steep mountains at the end of the journey.

The rest is a bunch of small references from our week, like the huge amount of frogs and reindeers we saw, our long, nice coffee breaks, the cabins we slept in and all the nuts and dried fruits we ate to keep up our energy.

All in all a fantastic trip, and something I hope to be able to do again someday in the future.

And I hope you’re all having a great summer!

    1. Thank you so much, Michele! It often ends up that way. I find that there is something from life in every painting. Even though it’s not always intended 🙂

I would love it if you left me a few words
