Lofoten – Ramberg beach, Sakrisøy & Reine

I’ve come to the last day on my vacation in Lofoten this summer. Previous days can be read about here, here, here and here.

My flight back to Oslo was scheduled to leave at 7 PM. Since the airport was only a few minutes from where I stayed, you could see it from the terrace, and it’s VERY small, I only had to be there like 40 minutes before takeoff. That meant I had quite some hours to spend before I left.

On the forth day in Lofoten Linda and I went on a roadtrip again. This time it was only the two of us. There was going to be some shopping included so Glenn didn’t want to come, he wanted to walk in the mountains in stead. We asked Linda’s mother-in-law to join us, but she wanted to stay at home.

Lofoten – the midnight sun

Last week, on friday afternoon, I went on a mini vacation to Lofoten. My dear friend Linda’s boyfriend Glenn is from Lofoten. They were there on vacation and I came to visit. I had the pleasure to stay at Glenn’s parents house during my 5 days stay and it couldn’t have been better or more welcoming.

Lofoten is an archipelago and is known for a distinctive scenery with mountains and peaks, open ocean and sheltered bays, beaches and vast untouched lands. It offers surfing, cycling and many rock climbing and mountaineering opportunities.

Forest of my childhood

Last weekend I went to the countryside, to my parents place where I grew up. It’s always nice to be there, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s so much more quiet there. I was visiting a friend of mine, an uncle and spending a some time with my parents. I grew up close the the forest, it’s just a minute away from our house.

The beach

Last year I went to the Netherlands again visiting my friend Chantal. Visiting her have become a yearly thing. The weather was so nice, we decided to bike to the beach again. Chantal lives in Alkmaar, 45 minutes north of Amsterdam. As the year before we decided to go to beach at Egmond aan Zee, it’s only a 30 minutes bike ride away.

As you can see it was sunny day, with a clear blue sky and it was warm. The sand was hot, too hot to walk barefoot in and it was the right amount of wind to cool you down a bit and play with kites.

Trägårdsföreningen

140713- 030s
I’ve been to Sweden a couple of times this summer. My Dutch friend Chantal visited me and we went on a 4 day trip to Gothenburg. We took the train, it took 4 hours. I had booked us a room at a lovely boat hotel, a tiny bit outside the city center, but close to the central station.

On the second day in Gothenburg, we visited Trägårdsföreningen. It’s a park full of flowers, trees, a lovely cafe, a big restaurant with an outdoor area and green grass big enough to host conerts. We saw them build a stage, so I think a concert was just around the corner. As you can see, the sun was shining and it was a lovely summer day. All the different flowers / plants were amazing. I love walking in gardens like this one.

On  our last day in Gothenburg we had to leave the hotel before noon. The train didn’t leave before 18.00, so we had quite some time to kill. We decided to spend the hours in the park, since we had our luggage with us and didn’t want to walk around with it. And after all, it was sunday, so not many shops were open and we didn’t want to spend much money. We spent the hours sitting in the park, reading, watching people going by us rating their outfits (socks in sandals is a BIG NO NO!) and eating a lovely lunch at the cafe. Chantie had a lovely salad and I had a yummy ham/cheese sandwich.

We took lots of photos in the garden. At least I did. Here are the photos I liked the most.
