Taking a Road Trip above the Arctic Circle Norway

Road Trip above the arctic circle Norway 1

Travelling north on a road trip above north polar Norway is simply a beautiful and unforgettable experience. The natural beauty all around you is immense. There is just so much to see on such a grand scale that much of it takes your breath away.

Driving in winter up there can be quite dangerous, especially if you’re not used to the region, the changing weather and conditions. As we were going to be driving ourselves, my fiancé James and I decided that summer would be the preferred option. read more

The Natural Beauty of the Midnight Sun Norway

Heading north of the arctic circle during summer in Norway is where you can witness a wondrous phenomenon known as the midnight sun. Indeed, Norway itself has often been referred to as ‘the land of the midnight sun’, although this can only really be seen way up in the north of the country.

You can also see the midnight sun in other countries such as Sweden, Finland, Russia, Canada, USA (Alaska), Iceland and Denmark (Greenland). This is where the sun does not set during summer months within read more

If you don’t mind the cold so much and you love checking out island paradises, the Lofoten Islands Norway just might be heaven on earth for you.

There are few places in Europe that could possibly rival the sheer magnificent beauty of this amazing archipelago. By this, I mean majestic mountains and peaks, deep fjords, colorful fishing villages, open sea and sheltered bays, squawking seabird colonies, fabulous arctic-fresh air and long, surf-swept beaches.

Our experience of the Atlantic Road Norway

This particular road was a ‘must-see’ for us as we took a Norwegian road trip from Bergen, north to visit places in the Arctic Circle during summer.

So, what is so special about this road you might ask?

The Atlantic Road (in Norwegian called Atlanterhavsveien or Atlanterhavsvegen) is a road that runs through an archipelago just off the mainland that offers wonderful views of the Atlantic Ocean and coastal landscape as you hop between a series of small islands and skerries, read more

The Natural Beauty surrounding Trollstigen Norway

Trollstigen Norway

Driving up the western coast of Norway, there is certainly no shortage of beautiful scenery to enjoy. In fact, I don’t recall many instances at all during our whole trip, where there weren’t stunning natural vistas everywhere you looked.

However, there is one section of highway situated slightly inland that is famous as an engineering feat and driving challenge amidst a majestic natural landscape. I am referring to ‘Trollstigen’.

What is Trollstigen Norway?

Trollstigen translates as ‘ladder read more

The Natural Beauty all around Stavanger Norway

For all the immense beauty that Stavanger Norway (and the rest of amazing Norway has), this has been somewhere I have wanted to visit for such a long time. I can’t tell you how excited I was when my fiancé James told me that Stavanger was the chosen location for his family’s reunion in 2019. Excitement was on two fronts – the first was to finally meet many of his family members that live in different parts of the globe, and the second was to do this while read more

The Natural Beauty of Lysefjord Norway

Lysefjord Norway 1

Lysefjord Norway is located around 25 kilometres (16 mi) east of the city of Stavanger within Forsand municipality, part of Rogaland county, in the south west of this incredibly beautiful country.

The name Lysefjord translates to ‘light fjord’, and this name is understood to have come about due to the lightly colored granite rocks that exist along all sides. Carved by glaciers dating back to the Ice Age, it is the southernmost of the biggest fjords in Norway.

During my stay in Stavanger read more

Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock Norway, (Preikestolen in English: “The Pulpit Rock”, “Pulpit” or “Preacher’s Chair”) once visited, is one of those places that you are never likely to forget.

Acknowledged by many as being the most photographed and popular site of natural beauty in Norway, Preikestolen read more

Solo Women Travel Egypt 2

The dream

Famous the world over for its ancient history, Egypt has long been a country many desire to experience. The mystery of the Pyramids, sailing down the waters of the Nile, seeing the mighty Sahara, visiting the majestic Karnak and other temples and monuments, wandering the Egyptian Museum, exploring the Valley of the Kings and swimming in the crystal waters off the Red Sea Riviera. These are just some of the treasures that makes Egypt such a ‘bucket list’ destination.
