just laughed and took away my keys and fined me 1500
Norwegian Kroner. This was then increased to 2000
Kroner after I offered them a bottle of malt whisky!!
a very dejected Bobby McWheeler had to hail a taxi
back to Ingjeborgs house - the fare probably cost
as much as my fine but I was past caring. I managed
to carry what I could of my welcome present and the
Politi agreed that I should get my car back at the
quayside in time for my return to the UK.
made a quick decision that it was maybe better to
travel without cars to the Hytte as it would be more
relaxing for me. Her weekend retreat is only 300 metres
up a mountainside above the railway to Oslo. Trains
stop at a halt on request. I must admit that the rail
journey was very comfortable - all trains powered
by renewable energy so I felt very green.
in all a great weekend with many relaxing soaks in
her outdoor hot tub (also powered by renewable energy).
found out that Inge is a great cyclist and would have
loved to do some of the tracks around the area with
her. The Rallarvegen is apparently fantastic if you
can cycle a bit (which I can’t).
to Bergen two days later my SmallCar® was waiting
on the quay as promised with another charge of garaging
at the police station to pay.
I think is maybe a better option in Bergen - I certainly
felt shades of bike envy as I watched push-bikes being
allowed on to the ferry first. Apparently they only
pay £10 each - now
that can’t be fair!
