After the leave of the first mountain visitors, i’ve decided to stand up immediatly, Felix was still suffering from his last nights drinks, so he keept a sleep, till some coaches empty theirs loads of japanese a side of our T1. Good thing the weather brightened up and all four of us started this day with a cup of coffee at the self-service restaurant, before why left this fantastic over night place. On the following hundered kilometres we hit really nice landscapes with ferries, curves and superb pass roads, it’s ended with the stunning view down to the Geiranger Fiord, where we build up our over night camp just above the water line and really beautiful view down the Fiord.
After our leave of «Ford Farm’s overnight», we did several kilometres on really nice, narrow and curvey roads. Today’s journey took us also over a dozend of bridges, some ferry passings and some under the fiord tunnel passages. A funny thing happened on a petrol station in a small village, where a guy called Odd Rune starts to talk to us cause of the busses. After some car talk, we found out, that he knews well Einar, Øystein and that he’s is neigbour of Anders. That was quite cool — Volkswagen connects! 🙂 After heading on and some other ferries and tunnels, we’ve arrived in the beautiful old twon of Ålesund, where we’ve took some time for having some food, sight seeing and climbing over dozends of stair steps the town’s own mountain called Aksla. While beeing up there enjoying its fabulous view over the whole region and climbing around the old war bunkers, we came up with the idea of overnighting up there. After picking up the cars and driving up. After parking the cars and picking up all Øl (beer), win and chips, we walked up to the former founden pic-nic place. While we packed the stuff an T5 Westy arrived, with Bern’s registration plates, and after an other half an hour Christin and Steffu joined us also at our huge and warm fire on top of town’s mountain — awsome…
After the weekend at Felix’s place we were looking forwards to hit the road again. Our today’s target was Kristiansund and the «Atlantic Road», a small stripe of tar that connects several small islands. To get there we had some Fjords and Fjiells ahead, with some really cool small roads. After seeing the game Switerland vs Chile, headed to «Atlantic Road». Even the «Atlanic Road» wasn’t less than 10km, it was an impressiv one. The landscape became really rought and wild. After passing the «Atlantic Road» we’ve started to look for a comfortable overnight stay. While searching we passed suddenly a kind of Ford only junk yard, called «Ford Farm». We stopped immediately and started to talk with the owner a freaky mid 40 guy. It was really awsome, a bunch of several decades of Ford was standing all over — just amazing. The guy recommended us a place at a little local harbor only a few hundreds metres further — it was a number one hint. After installing our «camp», we decided to put on a fire and best mother nature delivered every thing we needed to build up an wind protected and save fireplace — the top of an empty barrel, a worn computer case, some roof pannels made from aluminium, some old paletts and wood. Felix went out for fishing and within half an hour he returned with two small once, which he cooked in a delicious way, Thömu did in the same time an out standing pork filet. After all it becam a really great and funny evening with a lot of «Kafi Schnapps», «Läckerli» and some Villigers.
Bright weater, an alarm clock that rang early 0900 a.m. and a day in front of us, with a real exiciting sight seeing tour across «Trivelig Trøndelag» vw scene. We really want to say thanx so much to Einar the best guide in town. Also thanx to Screwdriver Andres for his time and alle the cool accessories demonstration and Kjell for showing us the most beautiful VW museum in Norway. So enjoy the pict without any comment, an we enjoy our «Norsk Øret» by our chief Felix, really delisous — even Hard-Core-Meet-Loving-Ändu starts eating fish.
We waked up around 10 o’clock — rain, we’ve eaten breakfast at half past eleven — rain, i downloaded all the pictures — rain, i’ve checked the broadcast — rain, we cooked some coffee — rain, we farted, pissed, drank øl, eat chips — rain, rain, rain. 14.33 — rain, 16.54 even more rain, 17.21 rain, rain rain — water, water water, i hate it. 18.14 it stops, yeah. 18.40 we headed out to some bronze age stone scatches. Cause of this effore we gain a proper dinner — Norwegian mexican wraps, mhhh. To the Wienderbrød desert Therje apeared to join us with some ciggarres and some glases of whiskey — it’s rerain again. phäää.
The starts, as the last one ends. And even my clothes was the same wet as they have been yesterday, when i went a sleep — oink really uuugglly, and so was my mood for the first few ours of the day. It went a little better after a cup of coffee and two wienerbrød in a bakery in Selbu. At Selbu we planed to spend our weekend at the local sommer festival, which took place at this weekend. But first we had to head on to Felix’s place in Hommelvik. Felix planed to finish his work at 3 o’clock, but cause of the stressy time he finally did it back home at 1700. Luckywise he left the doors open for us and we were able to take a shower, wash some clothes and doing some internet posts and bloggs, before we went to trondheim to do some sighseeing. But when we arrived it restarted to rain and i decide to spend the one and a halft our in a Café, instead of joining the other two’s on a sight seeing tour. After returning to Hommelvik and welcoming Felix, we did a welcoming Swiss supper — Cheese Fondue. After this cheesy evening, a couple of Villiger Ciggarres and some «Kafi Schnapps» we went down to the local bar called Rampa. Thömu invited the locals to «Black Cocaine» known in Switzerland as «Schnupf», they became immediately friend, at least when he tried «Snus», the Norwegian Tobbacco specialety, what you put between your upper lever and your front tooth — horrible if not used to it since birth. 🙂
After leaving the abondoned vally back to civilisation. We hit several narrow roads with cottages at its side. After a day of driving almost untared roads only, we redecovered the quality of tar. We headed further to direction Røros — an old an traditional mining village, where they dug for cupper over 300 years. We visited the old wooden twon and the museum in the former cupper meltery. Before leaving Røros direction Olavsgruva, we enforced us with a delicous Gulrot-soup (Carrot-soup). Unfortunately we found the Olavsgruva allready closed when we’ve arrived. So we was only able to look a little around the mining area, but not the caves. So we leaved to direction of trondheim through the white marked roads, which leads us over some fjells down to a narrow vally, where we’ve parked on a rest point. While parking the rain starts. Never the less we did heated in the grill and stuffed it with some meet and fish, still raining, and get worse. so after one or two cups of «Kafi-Schnapps» the wind becam stormy and we’ve decided to move into the Westy till it will stop, but it won’t…
