European Vacation – Stockholm to Oslo

The next morning, June 11th, we got up early and packed the car before walking over to the little cafe in the campground for breakfast.  While there we bought some bread and meat to have a picnic on our way to Oslo.  On this day we traveled 341 km.

Apparently we ended up eating our lunch with a bunch of horses.  🙂  I didn’t explain any further than that and don’t remember ever eating with horses.  I do remember having a few picnics on the way from one place to another place and it was not unusual to just pull over and stop to eat at the side of the road, so I’m guessing there were horses in a nearby field.  I don’t have any pictures of horses though and I seldom pass the opportunity to take pictures of horses.  This was back in the days of films – so maybe I didn’t have a film in the camera after taking pictures of the fjords.

At some point, we realized that we were in Norway, but had not noticed any official border crossing.  The road we were traveling on changed from a paved freeway to a skinny winding road.  I love driving on roads like this – you never know what might be around the next turn or over the next hill.   I mentioned that this was much more enjoyable than the flat and straight highway and that is still the kind of road that I prefer.

When we arrived at Oslo, we found another nice, modern campground with no privacy.  The last entry for this day was “No interesting guys here.”

These two pictures were taken while I was up on that lookout tower in yesterday’s blog.  The fjord was on both sides of the road, so one picture is looking one direction and the other picture is looking the other direction.
