On Friday the 28th I arrived in bright sunshine at Lindesnes Camping. On the bus I met a guy who is a permanent camper at this place and who told me that the majority on this camping site is German. At first I thougt that he exaggerated a bit, but I soon found out that indeed at least 70 % of the people there where German.
On the first to stages I had perfect weather – a mix of sun and clouds and comfortable temperatures (not too warm). The scenery was beautiful, too, with nice views on the coast line in the beginning and forest and fjords later on. Yet, those two days were also exhausting. I still have to get used to carrying the heavy backpack.
The people I have met so far are impressed by my plans and wish me good luck, but do not consider me insane so that is reassuring 🙂 The other day a guy had met two other hikers on there way to the North Cape near Kvås. So maybe I will meet the first like-minded people soon.
At the end of the first day I found myself a nice camp site at Trælandsvatnet. On Sunday I had a tough start, since there was no path in the beginning and I had to find my way through the scrubs. In the evening I arrived in Kvås and decided to spend a resting day there, because on Monday it is supposed to rain almost all day.
I alread got my first blisters and could thus already use my first aid kit 😉
