During their different journeys of the MEMORIA Norway project, SpringerParker will update the Logbook on a regular basis.
It documents their route and events in forms of on location photos and descriptions sent directly via the mobile phone to this website.
Clicking at the geographical data to the left of the entries lets you follow their route on the map.

There is always another tunnel

Again we are facing a lot of tunnels through the mountains. It seems like there is always a different weather condition each time another tunnel spits us out on the other side, a variety from sunshine to hailstorm.


A majestic view from the final one of the many ferries we had to take during the last two days. The different ferries took from 15 to 45 minutes to cross fjords.

Crawling clouds

Clouds are crawling over the mountains. Autumn doesn't seem to have arrived here yet.


Driving by night had its advantages. There were not so many trucks driving the serpentines and tiny roads, where at some spots not even two normal cars fit next to each other. Of course we didn't have so much nice views to enjoy when it was dark. The truck drivers are giving us a hard time, so we decided for a mountain-view-coffee-break.

When it rains, it rains

It started to rain when it grew dark yesterday evening and with the rain there came heavy wind. We found a place next to a lake to park the car for the night. It was raining the whole night through. Next morning we realized that the water in the lake was standing really high, all the little islands with trees on it were under water, a lot of meadows looked quite swampy. The rivers next to the roads turned into wild rivers.

The landscape according to Springer

The weather improved a great deal and we are driving through regions that, according to Springer, remind of grandpa Springers old toy-train landscape. Unlike the last days in Finnmark, there are still so much green colors on the trees and on the fields speckled with tiny sheeps and cows and there are little farms and houses between the hills, mountains and wild rivers.

Hoston, we have a problem

We are back in Norway, Trondheim passed by, we had to drive through what felt like a dozen of tunnels. At some point there was a road closed and we took the detour. That was the moment when our navigation system got confused and tried to send us onto fields, farms and roads that didn't even exist. Maybe it's time for an update.
