Reidar and Angela, who the Australian crew would know or have most likely met, came to visit us during our time in Sykkylven. So we decided to climb a mountain.

There are so many in the area and so it wasn't hard to choose a good one: Slogen. At 1564m altitude, it may not seem like much but it goes straight from a fjord (sea level) and up so it's still decent. Not too difficult but not a walk to the shops either.

We started by walking up through a valley from a town called Stranda (where they make the Grandiosa pizza - Norway's most trusted frozen pizza). The day turned fairly epic and we finally got back to a car over 11 hours later...
