Photo Essay – Day 3 – Driving from Kristiansand to Stavanger, Norway

26 Dec The Norwegian countryside, Norway

Bidding goodbye to our host at Villa Baneheia, we left Kristiansand early in the morning and joined E39 again to drive towards Stavanger. Our plan was to reach Stavanger in the evening with one brief stop in between.

Photo Essay – Day 2 – Driving from Oslo to Kristiansand, Norway

24 Dec Risor, Norway

Morning of our second day in Oslo was cold and cloudy and the streets empty when, armed with our backpacks, we left our hotel to pick up our rental car. On this trip we wanted to spend a lot more time in the countryside and were to drive south from Oslo along the coastline to Stavanger and eventually Bergen. We were super excited as this was our first driving holiday in Europe and we couldn’t wait to be on the way.
