Made it home shortly before 22:00. It took 1 year to plan my road trip to Norway and now it is all over.



The Dutch Coast

In less than 3 hours I made it to Zierikzee on the Dutch coast in the Zeeland region, where I will spend my final night abroad.



I’m on the Road Again

2 nights in the Netherlands now – one night here in Venlo – tomorrow an easier day, just a 2 hour drive to get to Zierikzee on the Dutch coast – and then back to Gloucestershire on Sunday.



Germany’s Baltic Coast

Beaches all across the country are dotted with lots of ‘Strandkorb’ (think beach deck chair but in a large basket-type thing which gives protection from sun, wind and rain).



Morning on the Swedish Coast

Arriving in Germany did rather feel like arriving back at home. Suddenly we’ve travelled from a country where I don’t understand the language at all, to a country whose radio stations I can listen to and understand.



The Bridge

With no clouds in the sky it was very hot this afternoon so perfect beach weather!



Fyn and Sjælland

The route to Copenhagen took us over the Great Belt Bridge (Storebæltsforbindelsen) – and in driving over this bridge we left Fyn and arrived on the island of Sjælland.



Sunny Norway and Windy Denmark

It was around 8 when we arrived at our overnight stop in Odense, the 3rd largest city in Denmark and the largest city on the island of Funen (Fyn).

Kristiansand and the Coast

From the map it looks quite simple: Long straight roads. The trouble is there are lots of cross-roads and I hadn’t a clue as to who was meant to give way to who. Neither, it seems, did the Norweigans.



Germany to Norway

Norway felt more different, for some reason. Yellow road markings for a start. I don’t think I’ve ever seen those outside of Greece before.
