Title: Telemark, Norway
Post by: Baron von Waffel on December 14, 2007, 12:06:27 pm
I want to show you a little part of my country. It´s known as a good place for bikers. At least in the summer. I had a little Varadero (125) for this trip.

It´s posted earlier at the V-strom forum, but it´s my post so I give it to you too.

I had a little trip to a great part of Norway, Telemark, this summer. Here are some pics. And forget about the little bice.

Those houses of Lognvik farm are a kind of museum. They are rebuilt inside, but it´s forbidden to change them outside. It is a traditional farm from inner Telemark, built in 16-something. Tre grass on the roof is the traditional way of covering the houses.

You have to wait some months. It´s winter and the bikes are stowed away. :(

Ice and snow makes the norwegians stay in our houses.
