The adventure family woke up a bit tired today. I was not sore but a bit stiff. Same with AdventureMom, a bit sluggish in the morning. After a fire and some breakfast I felt better. Todays adventure was a trip to Lilliputhammer, a miniature copy of Storgatan in Lillehammer. That street is supposedly known worldwide which I don’t believe for a second. You hear about few people visiting Norway and those that do talk about fjords, mountains, the beauty of the country, nice salmon, and how fucking expensive it is. Lilliputhammer consists of tiny buildings with some activities inside some of them. It has a few animals, a tiny playground, a train that runs every hour around the facility, and that’s about it. We were disappointed in the place and didn’t really think it was very nice. But it was not time wasted. Daniel ran around a bit but wasn’t very excited about the small buildings. None of the other kids seemed to be either. The highlight was definitely the train ride which took a few minutes. He just loves trains, tractors, trucks, buses, etc. They also got a couple of tiny tractors that can dig in the sand. You pay 10 NOk and you can use the different levers for five minutes to shovel sand and play around. This was a neat thing but not a killer.
We only stayed for a couple of hours and you don’t need more because the place is fairly small. I would not recommend a visit to this place. It’s not horrible but there are nicer things to do on your vacation. It took us an hour to drive which was no big deal except I once again had to face the idiotic, fucking useless Norwegian drivers on the E6. Their bad reputation for bad driving skills is not accurate, they are much worse than what people say.
We got back, had a couple of beers, and connected to internet via Wi-Fi. Works perfect and you can even sit outside sipping your beer while you blog, read the news, check the stock market, write emails, download porn, or whatever you want to do. If we had Wi-Fi in our cabin life would be perfect. But then we might not do as much activities outside…..
As we were having some wine at night Sandra looked out the window and saw a nice sunset. I grabbed the camera bag and headed down to the lake. It was 9 pm., the sky was bright, and the water calm. I ran into another guy taking photos at the same spot and he looked at me kind of funny. It was only later I realized I was wearing my long pajama pants, no socks, Nike shoes and a fleece jacket. I looked totally ridiculous. But who cares, we are in the mountains and the pictures were awesome.
