20 Aug A Photo Essay: Norway
Our favorite experience in Norway has to be sitting on a cliff overlooking the Sognefjord on our hike back to Flåm. In the middle of a harrowing hike along a fairly busy, narrow road on one end and the edge of a drop off on the other, we found a lookout point where we paused for a picnic break to relax and soak up the peacefulness. As we sat there, smiling and eating the lunch that we picked up from the grocery store earlier that morning, we reveled in the quietness and beauty that surrounded us.
You know the feeling of complete content and satisfaction you get in those serene moments that can only be created by chance? This was one of those moments, and I was smiling from the inside, and this is the feeling I get when I think of Norway. It was a perfect place to wind down after the crazy (but utterly amazing) schedule that we had packed to the brim in Iceland. The moments that make me smile are the days spent aimlessly wandering around the small town of Flåm and the thriving city of Oslo, exploring the fjords and watching the beauty effortlessly float by outside our train windows.
