Our initial holiday destination this year was the largest Norwegian National Park, the Hardangervidda. Trying to cross Denmark as fast as possible, we reached Geilo the next day, after having spent the night in the tent somewhere near Malmö. I don’t care much for Malmö, actually. But the Hardangervidda, a mountain plateau in western Norway, is extremely beautiful. And cold, for that matter. And they decorate their roofs in a very interesting way.
We did some serious hiking there and I captured some enchanting scenes with my little camera, but I did also complain a lot. Why? Because there aren’t any moose in Norway! Yeees, I saw the signs, too, they are everywhere, but this is only a cheap trick to convince all those gaggles of tourists the kings of the Scandinavian forest actually exist. I haven’t seen any. We decided the moose in the zoos all around the country are actually surgically customized horses. And then I stopped looking for them. I haven’t been able to get up early enough for ages, anyway.
But the Hardangervidda in Norway is seriously and really truly beautiful (click for larger pictures):
