The trip South – Day 1

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

I left for the South of Norway yesterday, and what a great experience it has been so far! First stop was Kristiansand, and the tourist office pointed me at a fantastic spot for wild camping, Helleviga/Hellevika. “Just park your car, find a spot to set up camp and enjoy a magnificent view over the ocean” is what she said, groovy! When I came there it turned out that wild camping is not allowed?!? (one of the few spots in Norway, as one is allowed to camp nearly everywhere in this country!)

WTF?!?

 

Well, luckily I met Høvard and Sverre who are staying with their families in a house owned by the community and they allowed me to ‘wild camp’ on the grass field nearby! A nice spot which came with a zillion of mosquitos and small flies, yet was perfect for the night!

 

 

 

The bonus I got was a brilliant view of the ‘full moon + 1 day’ over the ocean…words cannot describe the beauty of it, perhaps some pictures can…wow!!
