I've been driving round Norway 6 days

The last day of the journey, but probably one of the most impressive since I'm visiting two of Norway's most famous sights.

I've been driving round Norway 5 days

Now let me start by telling you that you won't hear much about Florø since there isn't much to say, it's just a small seaside town, cosy but that's about it. The fifth day was used to get from Florø to Ulsteinvik where my sister in law lives. Nothing much to say about Ulsteinvik either, it's just a small ship building town.

I've been driving round Norway 4 days

Too bad we woke up too late because that led us to get to Bergen to late for Urmita's train back to Asker. However we picked quite a pleasant pair of American hitchhikers on the way who left her a dollar :D

I've been driving round Norway 3 days or The Mighty Preikestolen

Sunday: Bergen - Preikestolen
This was a totally out of the blue idea, a bit of a gamble given the amount of time vs. the amount of ferries to get there. But being us, we went anyway.

I've been driving round Norway one day

Friday: Asker - Voss
Erik's idea. And a good one as usual. Started on a Friday evening from Asker after working hours (someone was working, not me). The plan was to get to Voss by midnight to get some good sleep, but it rained so much over Norway the day before that quite a bit was flooded and some roads/tunnels were closed. Instead of a 5-6 hour ride, it ended up being close to 10 hours due to the retour/detour we had to take. (see map :s). The red line is what we were supposed to drive, the blue is what we ended up doing :(

More in paradise! The Maldives! Iru Fushi...

And if the last few days with my friends from the boat weren't enough, the day they left I dragged my husband over and we headed to yet another island, a 30-40 minute flight in a little sea-plane, but damn! This is what I call luxury, Iru Fushi is probably 2 or 3 times the size of Embudu, and taken over by non else but the mighty Hiltons. A bungalow over the water, with big glass windows and doors on the sea side, our own veranda and a ladder down to the water, our own recliners, our own jacuzzi, this was like a 2nd (or is it a 3rd?...) honeymoon. Absolutely awesome!

Still in paradise! The Maldives! Embudu...

After a short stay in Male, it was time to head for our holiday destination, for sun and fun and cocktails on the beach :D My favorite trio.

I'm in paradise! The Maldives! Male...

Once upon a time, when I was 12 years old or so, I saw pictures of the Maldives in a magazine, and since then it just became a dream that back then I thought I'll never bring to life, but... 15 years later, I actually did...

Goa...More than I expected

Can't claim I've been around much of it. My stay in Goa was short, the main reason was that I needed to do some emergency "beach" shopping for my suddenly emerging vacation in the Maldives.

Deutshcland. Tag 4

Today was not planned, I ended up having an unplanned extra day in Berlin, therefore I didn't know what to do or where to go, I decided just to go and roam around. That resulting in me visiting Checkpoint Charlie museum (and getting bored after seeing half of it), walking around the streets there, going inside KaDeWe which is a nice shopping mall, if my feet didn't hurt that much and if my bag wasn't already full to the brim, I would've made use of that visit :).

Deutshcland. Tag 3

Although west Berlin is more prosperous and you can clearly see that, east Berlin has so much more to offer when it comes to sightseeing and attractions, thus the thirs day of my stay was there as well, went to the Museum island to see Nefertiti in the Egyptian museum, turned out it was closed, but still I went through the old museum and the old national gallery (I like art galleries :D), then went to a building that somehow resembled Notre Dame de Paris to find out it's not a church anymore but acts as Schinkel's museum, basically sculptures stand all over.

Bellissima Roma

Now this trip was a bit unplanned for. At least not in this way. The original plan was to take a long holiday in Italy and drive around the country.
