Vossestrand (via Lake Tyrifjorden & Hallingdal Valley) - Norway


 
Yesterday's story or the story at Oslo - Akershus Fortress, Frogner ParkNoble Peace Center, Viking Ship Museum and Kon-Tiki Museum. Today - the long winded journey to arrive at Vossestrand. Long journey indeed with stops in between passing by Lake Tyrifjorden and Halingdal Valley. Nice, so nice. Nature is so beautiful. I loved so much, so I tried to stay awake. Well, such an experience does not fall on the lap always, so you better appreciate. Sleep you can catch up when back home.


The first brekkie at this cafe along the road, offering ice-cream, hot beverages and snacks. Buy, sit inside or outside and admire the lake while sipping the hot coffee. Also don't forget to ease yourself. Loo stops only comes when there's a pool of people. For you alone - the rest will quietly mumble because of time and sometimes there may not be the toilet along the way. Unless of course you don't mind  the woods in the freezing weather.

Then came the compulsory stop - lunch in Solstad Hotel with traditional Norwegian food. The thick mushroom soup, the main the steamed salmon, served with boiled potatoes, vegetables and sauce, the dessert the fruits with cream and drinks the juices or beer.  
.





Norwegian food is like this. Fresh the fish, veggies and the soup. But if you a die-die Asian like me, you will still eat while praying sambal belacan will drip down from the sky.  
Before or after lunch, just stand around for a while to again admire Norway's beauty. We then left for another half a day drive to Oppheim Hotel and Resort.
