I had the most spectacular road trips this summer, we were cruising on epic mountain roads like this.. *Sigh* … Behold Trollstigen, Norway! The majestic landscape is overwhelmingly beautiful, and one has to focus not to create dangerous situations. At some locations the road is carved into the mountain itself, and the mountains surrounding Trollstigen reach an altitude of over 1600 meters.  Indeed, this place is vibrating with troll energies, and I hope to take a long hike around the area next year. Simply driving through it isn’t enough for me – I want more.

This summers adventures took us places that we hadn’t seen before as we drove several miles on narrow norwegian roads. Suddenly it was as if something whispered; take a turn, stop, breathe.” Those whispers guided us to a pit stop at Huldefossen, in Førde, Norway – A beautiful, magical place in the fjords of Norway. A few cows and sheep gathered around us, as if huldra herself was kulning by the waterfall. Who knows, maybe she was.
