According to actual plan the theme for todays’ trip to centre was “street photography”. There were tourists but less than I thought. It was sunny but extremely warm 22C. I shortcut my tour just after some images but am not happy. When I was looking for possibilities, I saw a nice frame made by apple trees.
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success ~Swami Vivekananda
For last few days I am all caught up in matters which really need proper attention. It’s all work related but after a very long work day is hard to be productive in evenings. If you have heard the word “GDPR”, you know the whole story.
On Saturday, with everything in place we decided to go hiking on mount Ulriken (643moh.) It was a good decision after all.
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves ~Edmund Hillary

In every season we make interesting memories on mountains. Little surprises wait for us on every corner.
We enjoyed our short breaks for relaxing and chit chatting. The view from every stop was awe-inspiring.
Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley. ~Theodore Roethke
Time to go back! There are hundreds of unpolished stone stairs to hike down. Sherpas from Nepal are building stone stairs by hand with no powertools.
The major portion of 800 m trail is finished. Sherpas are working on the last section near the top. This section was very steep, dangerous and nothing to hold on. I really wanted to showcase this specific part but was asked to walk carefully instead of thinking about taking pictures which I promptly accepted. A tourist (lady) fell down and hurted herself badly just luckily air ambulase was not needed.
We were able to cover a distance of around 10.5 km due to supportive weather with clouds and little breeze.
Fun Fact: Norwegians do not normally greet people they don’t know if they don’t have to. This is true most everywhere, except in the mountains. So be prepared to say hello to everyone you meet when hiking. It might turn into a beautiful friendship, or even relationship.
