Driving along Norway

It is pleasure driving along Norway.

I may say it is pleasure and it is dangerous. Pleasure because the view and dangerous because the view. Sounds funny. In many many places the view from the road is so amazing and (even if it`s many places to stop and enjoy the view) in many other places is not possible to stop. I have saved on my map a lot of places I will want to enjoy and photograph, but it is difficult. The shot from the car is not always good enough to present. In some of that palaces I try to take a trip and find good position walking and climbing. Some other are still on my wish list. Probably the life is too short to do it everything. But driving along Norway is so nice. The most annoying is to meet on the road some driver who drive slowly and trying to enjoy the view.

Ok, this is one of the place on the road E16 I wanted to photograph. In the last five years I drove this way around hundred times. Because E16 is the road with big traffic and in this place everybody driving minimum 80 km per hour, the time for reaction is short. This is Osterøy, visible from other side of fjord. This is the wild part of Osterøy island. It looks like long rock wall vertical to the water. It is nice in every season, but like you may see on the picture balow, in autumn time is amazing.

I did not know that what I did for the last four years, already has its name: Microadventure.

Everyone dreams of a great adventure,but not everyone can afford it. That is the colloquial thinking. Because….. (and here you can enter thousands of reasons). Whereas, the adventure is everywhere around us, and all you need is to look at around and start to do something. Sometimes it costs pennies, sometimes a few euro. I started it because I still needed more new photos to my blog. After four long years I know hundreds nice places around Bergen. This is my pleasure and my knowledge I want to use to write some ebook. I hope it helps someone to move and start his own microadventure.

The blog entries about some places I will marking with hashtag #microdventure, and in the ebook I`ll be expanded it.

What do You think about it? Your answer is important for me.

At the end: here is the author and adventurer Alastair Humphreys –

Just at the beginning, my trip to Hananipa.

Distance from Bergen to Trengereid – 49 km

The difference in altitude from parking place to the top – around 400 meters

Time – 2-3 hours

On the top – tiredness, amazing view on Sørfjorden and Osterøy island including Bruvik

What I need – sandwiches, thermos with coffee, and bottle of water, petrol (6 liters)

Nice tip for first spring adventure
