Norway.

A road-trip in pictures.

Story by Sébastien Nunes July 24th, 2017

exploring NORWAY IN A ROLLING HOME.

We love road trips because we see the landscapes changing as we drive. Every morning is a new adventure, waking up to yet another scenery. The van life sounded as a perfect way to explore Norway. Hop on and enjoy the ride!

the last night in Norway before going home...

We had this romantic idea about spending our nights outside by the open fire, talking, eating and hitting some chords on the guitar. But Norway decided to show its grey and rainy side most of the trip. Despite the weather conditions, we enjoyed every single moment. The landscape is so fantastic and offers you new, magnificent sceneries around every corner making you forget that the sun decided not to shine.
