Visiting a new country is always exciting from he moment you map your route, to packing the essentials and double checking everything is organised. It’s even more exciting and challenging when you’re only travelling for a short time. This one was literally a 100 hours trip to Norway, it was time for a long weekend break away from the pressures of a university student’s life. The time has come to discover the mystical Scandinavian Peninsula. Two friends and I rented a car, we drove from east to west to notice the countryside is harsh yet elegantly beautiful. We slept in little towns, a kind of like backpacker style but with a car. With such a busy schedule, each hour is important and there is no time to waste: 1500 kilometres, 8 county’s to cross, 40 tunnels and 4 days to make it. From Oslo to the Aurland’s fjord, we crossed the country between iced over lakes and snowed-in forests. I tried to capture the particular ambience of an April that is typical of Norwaya typica Norwegian April which quickly alters between sunshine and snowstorms in what seems like the a blink of an eye. Definitely one of my most intense trips. Here’s one way to escape the student life routine. No filters needed here.
