From Coast to Coast Expedition - Day 15

1,860 miles (3,000 km), 4,000 photos, 379 videos and 15 days later we are back to our base. The expedition is over and our heads are bursting with impressions, memories, and plain dizziness out of the stunning nature we had the opportunity to see. We are thankful we got back safe.

We started the trip here, at the southernmost tip of Norway.

We traveled to Oslo.

Then on to quiet valleys

and stunning mountains,

breathtaking fjords,

curvy narrow roads

and countless tunnels.

And we took pictures.

We took ferries from coast to coast.

We became part of the World BASE Race 2011

and Molde International Jazz Festival.

And we took pictures.

We picked wild berries

and went fishing along the Atlantic Road.

We reached one of the former capitals and then tragedy struck Norway. About 100 people died in the first ever mass killing in peaceful Norway after WWII.

We set back to experience life as it was 4 centuries ago.

And we took pictures.

We got swept away by surreal scenery,

slept in our van,

drove for hours on end,

got our van brought back to life after the challenging roads of Fjord Norway,

But most importantly, we never stopped documenting the beauty around!

Life on the road was mind-blowing and every inch of the way was worth it. We are now slowly adjusting to town life and seek quietness to re-live the moments of the past 15 days. 

Thank you for taking the trip with us, you have been the most wonderful and supportive companions!
