After the midsummer festivities, we spent a couple of days at Reidar's family's cabin, about 40 minutes inland of Grimstad.

It was extremely quiet there.. except for the thrice daily trains that flew past on the other side of the lake and echoed through the whole valley.

On our drive back to Oslo, we stopped at different towns along the coast. One of these was Risør—a small tourist town. There I had the biggest ice cream I've ever had, read a newspaper headline that Michael Jackson died, and found an awesome second hand store that had a stressless recliner and some japanese tea cups for cheap!
