Back in July, Susanna and I and two other friends had a an impromptu trip to Lofoten (the archipelago south of here). We stayed almost at the end of the chain, in a very picturesque village called Ballstad. Almost everything about Ballstad is well manicured and ordered. Even the seagulls sit in equispaced lines, and the outside of the shipyard shed is painted with a local mural (about 6 storeys high)!
The day after, we drove to Kabelvåg:
In Kabelvåg we met up with some friends of friends at the Lofoten Museum, mixture of old stuff, historical reconstructions, and aquariums:
And this was the 6 hour drive home:
We hope to take a slightly longer trip in 2017, not least because some friends have just moved to near Ballstad.
