Just a few snowflakes for Christmas in Trondheim this year, but we’re doing our best to get that Christmas spirit going anyway. Even the ships from Hurtigruten are dressed up in lights.
Happy holidays, everyone!

Tonight, I traveled by train towards Trondheim. As we were rolling out from the train station called Hell (that word has a completely different meaning in Norwegian), I saw that the sunset was particularly beautiful on this summer evening. Here are some mobile pictures caught through the window of the train on our way through Trøndelag.
Click on the images if you want to enlarge them.
On my father’s side, my family originates from a farm that is situated by Bjørnefjorden, a neighboring fjord to the famous Hardangerfjorden. The surroundings are very beautiful, and since I’m longing for summer I thought I would share some pictures I took there last summer.
These pictures are taken with a Sony RX100M3. Maybe I’ll bring a SLR camera this summer so that I can get a clear and focused image of the deer which use our farm for grazing.
If you ever visit Trondheim you should try one of the great hiking trails in Bymarka. On the first Saturday of August I hiked up to the Goat Mountain (in Norwegian: Geitfjellet).
It’s not the highest point in Bymarka, but it probably has the best view of Trondheim and the fjord. And on your way down from the mountain you can go by Våttåkammen, which is another great viewpoint.
The name of the mountain derives from its shape, so there’s no need to worry about meeting a stubborn goat or two. I did however meet some sheep on my way up to the woods.
