When we began our road trip, we didn’t have many detailed plans. There were a couple of places we wanted to go to and Lofoten was among them. We basically just drove and slept in a tent that we put in a place we found for each night. When we arrived to Lofoten, it got a bit tricky. The ground was very damp in many places and it was hard to find a good place for the tent. So I did some googling after the sun went down and we were still searching. I found a blog (in Finnish) and with the help of Google Maps we found out that Kalle beach was 49 km away from us. So we drove there and in the dark of the night we put our tent up, Jouni cooked some food and we went to sleep.
I woke up to the sound of waves before 6 AM. When I opened my eyes, I could sense the sun was about to rise. I grabbed my camera. When I went out of the tent, I had to stop and take it all in. This was the first time I saw where we were. On the right side, there was a HUGE (remember, we don’t have mountains in Finland) mountain (Vågakailln, 942 m). In front of me, there was a bay with no water because of the low tide. When I climbed to a nearby hill, all I could see was mountains everywhere, the sea and the sunrise. Oh how it took my breath away.
For now I’m sharing these two frames. More to come later.
