26-Mar-2012 -- Winter in Norway, we enjoy it so much! On our journey we combine searching for confluences and a Nordic skiing tour in the Peer-Gynt Ski Region this year. Arriving Oslo by car is easy and comfortable. Just hop on the Color Line ferry in Kiel and 20 hours later you are already there. In the meantime you can start relaxing with good food, lots of entertainment and buy all the things you might have forgotten. We had to buy cap und gloves, because Hamburg had been so warm for the last days that the need for that outfit was too far off the actual remembrance. The trip by car after arrival was smooth. Norway is always nice to drive. But you have to keep in mind that in general 60 kilometers is the average distance you can cover in an hour due to lots of curves and narrow parts even on the E6.
On our way back from our 2012 ski and confluence tour we took the chance to drive as near as possible to the confluence by taking a woodworkers way. The entrance was secured by a pole which was up while entering. On a Saturday we thought no one to be out working and so we didn’t worry too much not being able to leave later on. But you never know… We had to walk about 800 m direct line from our car but as you know this is not possible at all times. By choosing our ski shoes we were very flexible in moving around, following paths in the wood with fewer trees, crossing a small creek, looking for areas with not so much and compact snow for not sinking into the snow down to the hips. We ended up in light wood after crossing a small frozen lake and enjoyed the surrounding. Returning in our snow tracks was easy but nearly took the same time back again. Returning to our car we were a little bit in a hurry, for being late and in need to look for a place for the night. You can imagine our faces full of astonishment and stunned when we reached the pole again being across the way! But a guardian angel was looking after us, the pole wasn’t locked, uff, how lucky we were.
