Norwegian summer

Summer is a slow time. Have finally arrived in Norway, after a long drive though Europe (France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark) and I'm enjoying all the things that a Norwegian summer is:

- strawberries
- eating fresh mackerel only a couple of hours after having caught it
- Norwegian country side
- picking wild flowers
- walking in the pouring, but warm, rain
- drinking coffee outside
- sitting outside despite it being a little too cold to do so
- drinking 'cherry drinking yoghurt'
- enjoying the long summer evenings that never get properly dark
- listening to the rain dancing on the roof
- seeing amazing sun sets
- taking long walks and bicycle trips around the beautiful landscape
- drinking white wine
- picking berries in my grandfather's garden

Oh, Norway, how I love thee....
