Hello Cotthem!
Please show the track on a map or describe in words
We live near Norway, but do not go there - all say there's no dirt roads!

Hallo Cotthem,

mooi foto's,
je kan verdorie bijna mijn buur zijn; Oombergen is niet zo ver van Merelbeke.
Waar ik van droomde, daar ben jij geweest: cool!

Didn't know that there were true adventure-riders living so close to me

where's that "envy"-smiley ?
Nice pictures,
how long did you stay there?
Did you camp? Hyttes?
please, do tell us the whole story

Great stuff! Last time I was in Norway I was in college and somewhat broke, but next time I should be there with a bike.

Thanks for the pictures. Oh, and the Playmobil guy is great, especially the beard!

Thanks for the interesting view of the region. I wasn't aware of that geography.

Wow!!

Beautiful photography. I can't wait, going to fly and rent for a few weeks in a couple of years. Trying to ride as far north on every continent as you can.
