I found lovely camping a few kilometers outside Lom. It appears to be a wee additional income for people in the country. This was a little farm that had 4 huts for rental also camping and Motor homes with a toilet and shower block. In Oslo I paid €35 per night to pitch my tent. … Continue reading Brotherhood of Bikers
Last evening was wet. Last night it rained and this morning it was wet too. I woke around 5:30 and decided to get going. My location last night was Norheimsund on the Sildefjorden. I need to head North today. My plans were to get up towards Trondheim. I failed. Things were going swimmingly until I … Continue reading Ice
70kph is a really awkward speed limit. It fits nowhere in any sane persons driving spectrum. Unfortunately it seems to a little bit of a favorite up here in Norway. Mind you they have a speed restriction for every 10kph from 20kph up to the max of 100kph on the motorway. My friend Brendan Halpin … Continue reading Oriental Twist
The tree young ones camped beside me were from Ireland. The Irish are everywhere. Heather from Cork and the others from Lurgan. They work in London and took a flight to Oslo for the weekend.

What if you get a puncture on the way to the airport? A nightmare of stress sweat and cursing is what you're gonna … Continue reading Top Marks
Denmark is flat. Really flat. Even boring if you wanted to be a sneer. Not for me, I was delighted to be in Denmark. The manic motorway out of Germany heading north is populated by folks wanting to leave fast. You think Ebola had broken out in Europe and there was a migration to Scandinavia. … Continue reading Overheating
Do you know that Goats are milked at 05:15. Well that's when the machinery starts to hum. It woke me up, so I rolled over in my nice clean sheets and dozed for half an hour. I thought I must see how it's done. Noses in the trough and udders presented. No bother to these … Continue reading N26

It's blowing hard. There is a tent tied to a post nearby. The wind took it from its tentative moorings. It nearly polaxed an innocent soul. Fortunately it was caught by a kindly camper and attached to a post. It has passed redemption and is devastated now. The awning on the caravan across the way … Continue reading Vantastival June 2019
Planning is well under way for my trip to Norway. Bike prepped with panniers. The oil and filters changed and a good service. Garmen is kaput and I need to sort this out soon. This is a test blog to establish if the technology works.
