So, myself and my mum had the 10th August free for a long time and we knew that we would spend the day in London but doing what we was not sure? We had many plans from visiting Alexander Palace or Hampton Court Palace, but both being booked up we decided what about a musical? Looking online a few weeks before, it was hard to find two tickets that were not incredibly expensive, until we saw Mamma Mia! My mum had seen it before but she said she saw it in 2000 so 17 years ago!! And I had never seen it so we both thought yes lets go! I had watched the film at the weekend and I was singing a long and getting super excited. If you have not seen it I would 100% recommend both the film and the musical if you have the chance!!
Leaving the rain in Voss, we were heading towards Flam to continue our journey around Norway. We saw so many rainbows on the drive towards Flam due to the weather not making its mind up and thought we could go and find the pot of gold at the bottom, but Flam was calling!
With only a few days left of our trip around Norway, we had completed all of our planned hikes and had decided to head to Voss.
We had spent 2 nights in Oslo and we had packed again and was ready to set off on our road trip around Norway. We had hired a car through the car rental company, Avis. For a week the car was not too pricey, but because we were both under 25 we had two additional young driver surcharges, which added on a considerable amount. However, myself and Cole both agreed we’d have much more freedom and flexibility to do what we wish if we had a car rather than using other modes of transport, and also between the two of us it did not seem bad, price wise.
Finally, the day has arrived that we set of to Norway for our first adventure to begin! After months of seeing posts on Instagram, videos on YouTube and posts on various blogs, we finally get to experience the wonders we have dreamt about for ourselves.
This weekend, I hopped on the train up to Mansfield to visit Cole, as this is where he is currently doing his work placement for University. As I didn’t get in till late, Friday evening consisted of eating pizza and watching the Rio Olympics opening ceremony!
