DAY24: tHE dAys bECaME bRiGHter aND HoTteR, bUt sHOrtEr

After leaving our nice, but last overnight place in Norway, we headed down approximately 65 km to Kristiansand, where we have to take the ferry to Hirshals (DK). We have had still 2 hours to wait untill it leaves, therefore we went into the town to have some ice cream and short nap in the park — we’ve rather didn’t, cause after standing out i didn’t notice, that my small box with all of my cards slipped out of my pocket — Kaj, now i know like you felt in Mantrop. So, no money, no funny — or at least almost no money, not that funny. 😉 After arriving at Hirshals, we’ve decided to do another of couples of kilometers. So, we’ve driven till 23.00 p.m. when we’ve found an motorway restpoint to stay overnight.

DAY23: sUNny fRom The BeGinNing tiLL thE enD — aLmost.

We started our day quite early at 0800 a.m., cause we’ve had to catch the tourist ferry to Lyseboten. Everything went well even my no starter bus starts at the second try, by down hill starting. so we went directly to the ferry, where i’ve stopped the engine and forget it for almost 2 hours. The curise was just perfect, we’were able to see a lot of things, like sea eagles, seals, base jumpers and several interessing rocks. 😉 When we’ve arrived at Lyseboten, we took a sunbath, which was interrupted by Sven, a Australian/German base jumper who owened the same bus as Ändu has for about 10 years. So this scenery was quite shaky, cause he immediately has got a huge flash back of all the adventures he has had with his bus. After climbing the 27 serpentines of the Lyseboten pass, Ändu and Thömu took a hundreds of pictures of these impressive landscape on top of the fjell. A little later i’ve recongnized two places i’ve stopped with Paolo and Marc in 2007 — yeah, guys this was a real great trip, we’ve spent. After our sunny fjell trip, we’ve ended up at Setesdal on a superb over night place founded by Ändu and Thömu — thanx dudes.

DAY22: fInALLy gREat wEAthEr, a lOt oF FerRiEs aNd A bROkeN sTarTer.

After going to beat at 04.00 a.m. we went up allready 09.00 a.m. with out any suffering from last nights consumation — ok, little. 😉 This day was one of the sunniest, hotest and nices days so far — the norway we dreamed of it. we headed down from Bergen to Stavanger. There were about three tunnels below the fjord and three ferries to cross the fjords. The tunnels were amazing, the longes was 8 kilometer, which leads us down to 264 metres below sea level, that means 4 kilometers down and 4 kilometres up — quite steep for a fivtheen hundred. 🙂 In Stavanger we’ve visited the very interessted museum of oil — ok, you obviousely see who sponsored that one, but still very interessting and educational. The only bad thing of this day was, that my starter has gone, but luckywise i’ve got an army conversion, what means, that i’ve got a crank, that saved me of pushing the bus on each time. Yeah, it gives you a little «before war feeling» when you have to start your van on a ferry by crank — if it works, awsome, if not, shiiit. Now we are staying for over night at the ferry station of Lauvvik, where we want to catch the ferry to Lysebotn tomorrow 0900 — let’s see what will happen …
