from oslo to trondheim to steinkjer

 Friday started early than usual since I had to wake up at around 9 am to catch the train for Trondheim, with a supposed transfer in Hamar. What happened was we had to transfer to a bus in Eidsvoll, which then took us to Hamar for the loooong journey to Trondheim.We made a quick stopover in Trondheim, Norway’s third largest city after Oslo and Bergen, where we saw the picturesque harbor of the city, with its docked boats and rows of storehouses, as well as Stiftsgarden or the Royal Residence and Torvet or the market square which is actually a large sundial with the column (of the city founder’s statue) casting its shadow on a cobblestone clock face.After a quick dash at McDonalds for lunch, we sprinted to the central station to catch the train that took us directly to the airport where we picked up the rented car for the weekend. But before that stop, we passed by an oddly named station, well for me at least. Welcome to Hell.With the car wheel on hand and Hallelujah singing in the background, we continued our journey along European Route E6, and snapped these photos along the way.It’s great to meet Knut’s family, who have all been wonderful hosts despite our difficulty in speaking a common language. It’s great to see a new view of Norway, known for its magnificent fjords and rich landscape. And it’s great to finally be home in Oslo again, only 45 minutes by plane from Trondheim, compared to the 10 hours we spent on the road going there.
