Scenes of Norway

In travel, there are always little tidbits to encounter.  Seemingly insignificant at the time, but memories none the less.  A carving above a doorway.  Cultural norms.  Wildlife.  Fun finds.  Here are some of mine.

Fireweed in abundance. We followed the blossoms throughout our cycling travels.

A long boat floating out in the lake. We were surprised how often this scene repeated itself.

Company on our route!

A sod roof, which was quite common.

Fish drying racks – seen throughout the Lofoten Islands. These are used in winter, and it’s the wind that dries the fish.

“Rorbu” – fishermen cabins, now used as tourist accomodations

Fishing village in the Lofoten Islands

Viking carving above a doorway.

Mailboxes always seem to congregate together.

Fanciful footwear on an Arctic front porch!

Norwegian banners flying everywhere. They can be left out night and day, unlike proper flags which must be taken in at night.

Funky artwork that reflects the mountain scenery, and the photographer.

This was creepy. A bathroom in a park that had a wall of one-way mirrors…

A home for old Volkswagen Bugs!
