  • Sightseeing | Norway > Bud, Norway
    Updated at Jul 12,2013

    We decided to sleep in the area and give the bridge another chance the next day. We drove to a nice town called Bud. Bud is a very picturesque fishermen village which is worth a visit.  If we hadn't wanted to visit the Atlantic Way the next day I would have missed it, because it wasn't in our original plans. 

    It has plenty of Rorbus, a hill from it's cliff there's an amazing view of the islands and the remains of canons and ditches from WW2. On the cliff's wall you can find a nesting ground for seagulls, and below, a rock park. Many houses are just lovely. 

  • Sightseeing | Norway > Slettafossen
    Updated at Jul 12,2013

    The road to Dombås was one of the prettiest roads we've driven on this trip. The Romsdals river flowed beside us in green color, high mountains with snowy peaks in some, waterfalls in many shapes and forms. It was an extraordinary tour. After Verma there are three huge waterfalls, and later on you'll find an enormous waterfall - Slettafossen. This waterfall cut deep in the rock and created a canyon.

    Right beside this waterfall, when you cross the car bridge, there's a souvenir shop with trolls in the front.


    This is where we met a guy from Åndalsnes who told us that he hadn't seen this kind of water flow in more than ten years. 

  • Sightseeing | Norway > Borgundvegen > Borgund Stave Church, Borgund, Norway
    Updated at Jul 12,2013

    We arrived to our cabin at Laerdal by 18:30, and went for an evening tour to the stave church in Borgund (appears as stavkirke in the signs). Stave churches were build by the vikings based on their knowledge in building ships.

    We arrived to the church and found surrounded by scaffolds. We talked to the foreman in the place and he told us the church is in renovation for three years and by Christmas they'll finish the work. A scent of fire was in the area, and he told us this is a materiel they put on the wood to prevent fires. The church was closed for visits.

    We crossed the road to the other side and the visitor's center was still open. We saw there a model of the church and we asked some questions about the historic road - we saw a sign leading to it bypassing the two tunnels we passed when we arrived here.

  • Sightseeing | Norway > Steinsdalsfossen
    Updated at Jul 12,2013

    We drove from Granvin toward Bergen. We stopped at Steinsdalsfossen which was an amazing waterfall. You can go behind the waterfall and see a white screen of crushing water. Sadly, our umbrellas were already packed in out suitcases, so we didn't do it. Highly recommended!!!

  • Sightseeing | Peru > Vilcashuamán
    Updated at Jul 3,2013

    An ushnu is a pyramid-shaped, terraced structure that the Incas used for important ceremonies. The Ushnu in Vilcashuamán is accessed through a double door jamb, characteristic of the most important compounds. In the upper platform you'll find a large stone with unique carvings that is known as the Seat of the Inca; it is believed to have been covered by a golden leaf.
