If there would have been more sunny days, our stay here would have been great. Yes it was cold, and windy almost all of the time, but the cloudiness of the place did get to me. I need to see the sun, and blue sky, not just gray and clouds.
We did see things we wouldn't have back home, experienced a few Norwegian things. We did explore on weekends, took nice (long) drives, and this despite the rain. The one thing that I'm really happy to have seen is the Midnight Sun. It is really strange to actually have to wear sunglasses at midnight. The other night driving back from a view point, where we could see Landegode, a big island off the coast and behind it some part of Lofoten, I thought it was strange that the town was so quiet, when Hubby reminded me it was past midnight, on a week night... It is strange to look out at any time and there's light, we can no longer tell time by looking out, we need a watch.
