Slept so cozy even when the ground around the tent froze over night. Rose early again and drove an hour to the ferry station with the sun rising in my back. There were lots of doe grazing on the fields, some even right in midst the villages. The region I went through is relatively close to Ålesund but I've never been there before. It was the perfect ending to this trip, taking me throuh a couple of fjords and over numerous small islands connected by several distinct bridges all set alight by beautiful golden sunshine. After travelling some 3000 km I safely arrived back home and gave my sturdy car a well deserved wash - I can look out my back window again :D
To anyone considering getting out his place for the weekend or so who doesn't know where to, I can only recommend to simply get going, hit the road and see where it takes you. I'd totally do the whole thing all over again anytime, but I'm kinda fed up with ice and snow for now. While it holds its beauty I'd like to be able to get out and walk around the scenery a bit more and access some of the parks and stuff. Also camp more instead of staying in cities. And I'd love to be the passenger for once so I could lean back and just enjoy the view. Hit me up if you're in, there's still lots of places out there ;)
I wrote a Processing sketch that maps maps anew. Always wondered what it would look like if you inverted the altitude of Terra's surface. Due to the highlighting/shadowing of peaks and depths of the original map this doesn't deliver the true conversion, though.
