Norway Days 2 & 3 – Skiing in Kongsberg

Bright and early the next day we took a train to a place called Kongsberg which is a little ski village about 1.5 hours from Oslo. That cost about £16/17 per way as well.

There we stayed 2 nights with friends and friends-of-friends (many large and fit Norwegian people who make me look like a toddler!)

Skiing was HEAPS OF FUN I love skiing it’s just so thrilling!

In between we would have a hot dog and chips while sitting in the snow
And then going back and having a hot shower was like heaven

Btw my ski pants and jacket are a boys’ size 10. Hahaha.

Umm.. when we were at the ski hire I got charged a child’s rate. I didn’t ask for it. But woohoo, I saved some good money! 😀

OH YEAH

I discovered this AMAZING Norwegian food called ‘lefse’ which is actually a traditional soft flatbread that people have with coffee or something

It’s got sugar and cinnamon (kanel) inside and it’s SO SUPER DELICIOUS I LOVE IT!!

Tykk lefse ie thick lefse (thicker bread)

THIS (below) is the BEST (normal thin one)
