Geilo, Norway

August 18-19, 2001

The train ride has become increasingly scenic with lush river footed mountains giving way to snow capped peaks.

We got off to stay in Geilo for the night, a town where you can get off the train and practically get right onto a ski lift. Though there's no snow, the fresh cold air is immediately noticeable. Too tired for an evening hike, we retreat to our cabin room for an early nights rest, but end up looking at tourist leaflets and drinking tea until the late hours.
