Thank you! I personally think other people wanting your pictures as desktop wallpapers is one of the greatest compliments you can get as an amateur photographer I think I can reveal I got home safe, but you'll have to find out further in the report if this was by bike or on the back of a tow truck...

The distance is not too bad, if you use the ferry to Kiel you can leave one morning from the NL and wake up in Oslo the next day. A morning's ride later and you're in dreamland . The short ferries are not that bad either, they provide a nice break from riding and a chance to meet other bikers (if any). Only the longer ones are a chore, but I've only had 2-3 of those. NO EXCUSES!

(Which is a fairytale in it self. Got several pics to tease the public , if interested.) Nice trip , and gutsy so late this year. I went down approx 10 times this sunday, snow . .Studded tires and smaller bike next week.

I'll try to pay attention if there are other (foreign) ADV-ers in Trondheim area !

I definitely want to go to Norway again, maybe a shorter trip next year or 2014. I want to see some other places I didn't get to this time around, and I'd like to don't have to worry about the weather so much. When I get to that I might sent you a message
