Larvik - Trysil Greeted by blonde Norwegian police woman double checking passports. We make it into this country, where oil flows through the streets. It's a 4 hour drive, today it's on the edge of the world all the way - fog that you never quite seem to catch. A detour to MacD - so nice, when you are used to the Danish rudeness. Did you know, Danes are the bad boys of Scandinavia? I am proud of it, yes, but at the same time...ah, let's not dwell on it.

Hirtshals - Larvik After receiving a disturbing message about increased passport control, we frantically realised that one son did not have a valid passport. It may sound ridiculous to the unfamiliar, but Nordic countries have had a "passport Union" since 1954, meaning We have travelled freely in the North without passports for two generations. It's chocking, even if they do call it temporary; the refugee situation will change our ways. Perhaps it is a good thing, but change it will, either…

Woke to a view to the Seven Sisters - surrounded by water and mountains. It's a scruffy little town called Sandnessjøen - with a wire to the world, which reminds me of our insignificance. They found oil, soon money will change this quiet place. Maybe for the better...how else shall rural communities survive?

Route 6 in Norway - telling you, like Highway 1 on Viking steroids. This is at the Arctic polar circle. The trip from there to Narvik is a parallel world of smokey white Beauty of a soft, ice cold dream. You drink it all up and want more.
