Memories of skiing

To day my friend, Martin, dropped by and gave me a memory stick with old pictures from our various explorations of the Norwegian mountains. When the ski season is about to begin, it is pleasant to look at this old pictures, of tours that has been. And will come again.

The place we go to are Kvamskogen, near Bergen, in Norway. It is about an our in bus from the city center, the bus leaves 1130 on Sundays, and returns 1900, 2100 and 2300 (I think). The departure is a it inconvenient, but the first bus in the morning goes way to early, so we have to go at midday. Still, we get a long, great day in beautiful surroundings.

The Norwegian tradition is to always bring some food to the mounains. We have the tradition of boiling sausages (it is to cold to fry them), put them in bread, and bring on Ketchup. Wonderful. We also bring choclate, bisquits and Cocoa.  In the first few trips, I also brought lunch (but then it left little time for skiing!)

Kvamskogen is a little bit short of Nordheimsund. The stop we chose is “Furedalen”, just were the ski center for alpine skiing is. We prefer cross country skiing, though, and head for what we call the “Twin tops” (actually, it is me, calling them that), but I think the correct name is: From there, we have an extraordinary view down to “Hardangerfjorden”, or “The Hardangerfjord”, as it is called in English.

Here I am, on ski, with a beauiful view of Hardanger behind.

We do from two to three trips each year. These pictures are only a small portions of what we have, and the pictures are nothing to all we have done and experienced, there. So many moments, so many memories. And more are yet to come.

And here we have our nice little relaxtion in the Norwegian winter sun. How could the life be better.
