I think that some of us Norwegians tend to kind of forget how beautiful our country is. In a busy life consisting of running back and forth, the stunning scenery around us become nothing but a background. We forget to stop and look at it, let the view sink in – because we've seen it all before! I am no exception, and I've actually realized my ignorance has become worse over the years. This afternoon hike up to Vassætra in Sykkylven reminded me of how stunning my country is, and how happiness is present in the simple things – like an amazing view or fresh wind in your hair.
The hike isn't a long affair at all, but long enough to make you sweat and give you that fresh feeling of using your body. Depending on your (walking) speed you can reach the top within 30-50 minutes!
