Trystan: A busy week

January 25, 2010

It’s been a busy week! Last Friday was the opening of Klubb Fantoft – a bar/dance club right on campus. Then Sunday we hiked up Mt. Fløyen – in the snow. It was really, really beautiful. Kids were sledding down the trails the whole way, some old people were bookin’ it up the hill, and everyone else was just peacefully enjoying the outdoors. Norwegians do this a lot, I gather.


Maddie got here early Tuesday morning, and we left right after that. Us and 8 friends rented 2 cars and did a road trip to Hardangerfjord. It was just… wow. There really aren’t words to describe it. We spent the entire day in cars and had an absolute blast. Road trips are fun – but road trips with new friends, through the fjords of Norway? Amazing.

We took a ferry across and ate lunch that everyone helped make. It reminded me of Philosophy Camp, where everyone made something for everyone else to share. But the sights! Man oh man you can’t make this stuff up. I’m really excited to see it during the summer as well – mountains covered in green, and gigantic flowing waterfalls. This is such a beautiful country. There really is nothing better…
