32nd Day Haugesund Preikestolen

Our total track record is around 350 km.



After setting off from Haugesund in the morning, our first stop was Ropeid-Sand ferry, 90 km away.











After Sand, we turn to the highway no. 13 again and continue down to the South.









Nesvik-Hejelmeland ferry















After the ferry passage, we arrive in Preikenstolen by a pleasant ride.



After settling in the hotel, we are out on our way to climb the Minber Rock.
Although our way was shown as 2 hours going and 2 hours returning, around 4 hours trip; we climbed down the way, which we went up around 1,5 hours, in around 1 hour; and spent around 1 hour on the hill.

We met Turkish students, who came here for summer holiday by student exchange program. If I’m not wrong one or two of them were from Bursa.

It would be a shame, not to enjoy ourselves in such a beautiful place and when facing this view.













When the time passed by, it became less crowded and we found the opportunity of taking picture more easily.

































We went back to the hotel district, from the same tough road. With the exhaustion of the day, we called it a night, after dinner.

Seals







Lysbotn appeared from afar



When we came closer to Lysbotn, fog started to fall on the mountain we were supposed to climb. Because of this, we had to skip Kjerag Rock.





When we got off the ship in Lyston, we went to Sirdal under a thick fog and trough curvy mountain roads. After Sirdal, the fog reduced. We connected to the highway no.9 around Nomeland and through Telemark we reached Skien.

Our bikes parked near the hotel



Our hotel



After a short city tour, we had dinner and went for rest.

34th Day, Skien Oslo

Track record is around 300 km.


When we arrived in Oslo, first we went to the port to buy our tickets from Color Line Company, for the Oslo-Kiel navigation, two days after. Since the departure time of that day’s ship was approaching, officers were only processing that ship’s passengers. They told us to come after the ship’s departure. Because the ticket issue was delayed, we went for a short tour on the coast, before going to our hotel.







Later on, we went to our hotel, changed our clothes, jumped on our bikes, and started to explore Oslo.

Our first stop was the Opera House

After the Opera House, we went to the center, where the Nobel Peace Prizes were given. Currently, it is a museum.

































Digital Garden, which is organized for the people who received the peace prize so far.







We signed the memorial book.





Oslo Town Hall

Luck for us, that day, there was the weekly meeting of motorcyclists in the street, where Hard Rock Café and other cafes were located.
