In the middle of February we went to Lillehammer and on the way, we stopped by Mjøsa. Enjoy the pictures!
I’ve been to those places many times already because they’re reasonably close to our city, however, each time I come here I always enjoy it a lot. It doesn’t matter if it’s winter, spring or summer (I’m not a big fan of autumn, to be honest), Norway looks its best.
I probably already have thousand or more pictures of Mjøsa but I never get tired of the view. Every time I come by it looks different, it’s either frozen or melting, has sun reflections on water or noisy waves due to the wind.
In Norway, winter lasts unbelievably long for Europeans, but for its defense, the beauty of it is self-explanatory. If snow falls here, it looks magical. It doesn’t melt after one day, it sparkles in the sun and covers every piece of land.
I must say that I’m more of a summer child though. Not only was I born in July, but also it seems that I’m much happier when it’s sunny and warm. In the past few years, I’ve experienced most of the bad things in winter for some reason. Still, If with the right person – every season is bearable.
However, no matter how bad it is, it’s not a season’s fault, that’s the first thing. Secondly, it’s important to appreciate things as they are. I could just see winter through bad memories but it’s better to see it through shiny snow, fresh, breezy air and frozen, white-painted trees.
I was always a nature-lover, but Norway taught me to appreciate it even more. Maybe I’m becoming mentally a granny (and I’m not even in my mid-twenties), but I like to stop on a walk just to look everything slowly. No rush, no running. I mean, what’s the point of a walk then.
They say you like the most things, you don’t normally have. Or something like that. Paradoxically, for those months I spend in Szczecin I have had little to no sun, so when I came here and I was blessed with so many sunny days I was just a happy kid.
So yeah, sunny, wintery days are worth appreciation. Because we could have muddy roads and cloudy skies instead (Szczecin).
I hope you guys liked my post and I hope you all are having a great weekend so far! See you on Wednesday.
PS: I’m back in Poland. So if the mood in this post is different than previously, it’s due to my “post-travel-depression” or something like that.
