#Lillehammer was the host city of the winter olympic games 1994 and i dont remember anything since i was 3 years old (3 and a half, but i wont write 4 even though im a 1990 kid!!! - already in the age of trying to make myself younger 😁). But my father is a huge sport fan and he watched the olympics. And i knew that if i bring him a present back home, it will be from this place - the #lysgårdsbakken ski jump area above the city.
But first i had to beat the almost 1000 steps all the way up (meh, its nothing after 3 weeks of cycling) and write my name in the guestbook (of course with a correction, because i have to make always some mistake 😠).
This was my last night in the tent and in the afternoon i took a train to spend the last days of #2015norway in the norwegian capital.
Everyone enjoys downtime at home, I'm sure, for various reasons, but I find the whole system of being out there and surround yourself with nature - the more of it you do, in fact the more energizing it is, for me individually. @southafrica@lourensford
Last year, we stopped at Dyrhólaey and didn’t drive further before driving back to Reykjavik. End of March, we’re going back (with our 3 kids this time) and we’ll spend a night in Smyrlabjörg so we can visit the Diamond Beach of Jokulsarlon. Looking forward!
The pemangku is the most common priest available in villages. The pemangku can handle most religious duties such as conducting blessings and leading small religious ceremonies. At a temple, a pemangku is often seen in full-white clothing from head to toe.

My last sunday in #2015norway was as usual - about finding the shortest way to the church. Thats why i hurried up with my breakfast and packing of the camp, so that i could reach the #church in #lillehammer in time (i came one hour earlier, so i could shoot such pics 😊).
But i had to solve some serious issues after the service - i couldnt find an open shop in the evening the day before and i barely had something to eat 😁.
Unfortunately most of the shops in norway are closed on sunday (i agree with that, but i was hungry back then 😁) and i failed to find some open shop in a big city like Lillehammer. Emergency solution was first a hotdog on the train station and then a hamburger in a restaurant (again, the most expensive one ever 😕). In the end i found out that i have to ride some 20 km back to Granrudmoen - apparently a bigger tourist area than Lillehammer with an open market. And with enough food i decided to return to my yesterdays camp spot by the river near Fåberg since it was quite nice 😊
