Few hours in Lillehammer.

One of the closest cities to Hamar, so I thought – why not? It takes only 40 minutes from my city, and the tickets on NSB are relatably cheap – around 109,- if you happend to be a student of course. I didn’t plan it, it was totally spontaneous. And you know what? Those are the best trips.

Hamar – first impression.

It’s… small. Really small, about 30,000 folks live here. But some people say that small is beautiful, and they’re absolutely right. In Norway you probably can’t find an ugly city, it’s just impossible. It’s like – å lete etter en nål i en høystakk – looking for a needle in a haystack.
