I travelled North

l7
We travelled, by the almighty iron horse of all horses! (*cough* such a small car… such a long way!) This was pretty much our view once we hit The Lofotr Islands.

I beheld the misty mountains cold

There was too much beauty. I was wondering when it was going to stop

But it just became more and more beautiful

I cried and snapped photos. Yes, I do have a soft spot for the grandiose mountains and fjords of Norway. There is no place like home.

Along the way there was a beach. I had to take off my shoes to enjoy northern sand between my toes.

I was wearing linen chemise

Mountains are most inspiring to me. They are cold, beautiful and mighty. Everything about them evokes a burning warmth in my heathen heart. Whenever they are mine to behold, I do get a romantic and quite religious vibe from them. I can’t help it, and I am not sorry about it.

As for now, I am looking through the huge pile of photos from the Lofotr Viking Market. Yes, you shall be able see them.

  1. On that first mountain shot it looks like lines have been hand carved into them. Maybe they have 🙂 There is a mountain in Wales ( I forget the name) where it is said that if you spend a night up there you come down either mad or a poet. Maybe a bit of both would be nice.

  2. Just so beautifull! Thanks for sharing! And yes, you are true, there is no country like Norway! I fall in love with Norway the first time I was there and I am longing to see the fjords again!

    Bye the way, may I ask you: you are always dressed so beautifully with linen long dresses: where do you find them? Do you make everything yourself? I would love to wear such dresses also here in France!

    Bye bye, looking forward to see you pics!

  3. Love the chemise. I read that you hand-sew your own outfits….are you self taught? I would love to start hand-sewing and have been on the look-out for good information on it.

  4. Your country is so beautiful… You are really lucky to live here! Going to Norway is my dearest wish. I hope I could see those landscapes one day. For now, your blog makes me feel like I’m travelling there with you, so thank you. I wish you the best.
    Kisses from France.

    • Hy you! You are from France? From where? I am from Colmar! Would like to find other viking-interested people down here. And yes, Norway is the most beautifull country in the world! (j’aurais dû écrire en français!)
      Bye, Mirjam.

      • Salut Mirjam,
        Je suis de Nancy! Etant étudiante en Histoire et Archéologie, je m’intéresse évidemment à l’Histoire en général mais il est vrai que les Vikings et la Norvège me font particulièrement rêver! Par contre, je ne suis pas spécialiste, je suis une simple amatrice. ^^ Fais-tu partie d’une association de reconstitution?

      • Salut! Je suis doctorante en études germaniques et scandinaves à Strasbourg. J’écris une thèse sur la stemmatique de la légende de Brünhild. Donc l’histoire et l’archéologie restent dans mon domaine! Si tu veux écris-moi sur mon mail: pinkmirjam@hotmail.fr ! Byebye.

  5. Hello!
    You are an inspiring woman, and your blog is a world of happiness for the saga and Viking’s history lover i am ! Frida
