Hi again, y`all


This time a more peaceful and calmer picture from me.
Had a trip around my little island today. Had to use the hours left of my last day in daddy leave with something constructive and cozy with the kids (well, they stayed put in the seats back in my car, but a nice view -as always- out their windows)

Picture is from Bleik, Andøy. Norway that is.

I am thinking of heading up around Lofoten this summer for a drive with my wife, I will be visiting family in Sweden for a few weeks.

Any suggestions on where to go, not go?

Hi, Norway welcome you this summer
I`d suggest a stop in Reine, Henningsvær & Stamsund.
These places have kept much of the old spirit and architecture. The "capitol" of Lofoten, Svolvær, is nice too but really crowded with tourists summertime and have expanded enormously the last few years. Which maybe isn`t what a tourist looks for when visiting these areas..?

If I were you, I`d actually consider driving to Vesterålen (where my picture is taken). The nature is practically the same, the weather is definitely the same and people are as friendly here. But fewer tourists and here`s more space for visitors. Accommodations are everywhere here as well.
Here`s some basic info of Vesterålen:

Thanks a lot, I`m glad you liked it
I love the colours of the DA17-70mm... The blues in particular.
