We started our second day with tour guide through Nidaros Domkirke (Cathedral) which we managed to get for free (because of some misunderstanding). However, for students the price is 50 NOK, so if we had to pay, we would do that, it’s not that expensive.
Trondheim – arriving & first day.
In my last post about packing for a trip, I didn’t mention where I will go. So here you go, Trondheim, Nidaros, Kaupangen, City of Kings. Located in the North-East of Norway, in Sør-Trøndelag county.

Fridays with Norwegian #11 – tools.

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.
