Yes, we are lucky. We are working while traveling and traveling while working. A dream job indeed. We traveled all the way to Norway (our first Europe stop this year) to drive a brand new Volvo V40 on Norway’s beautiful roads. If you speak Afrikaans, read our story here on page 8. We started our trip in Oslo and in the following days we went to Oppdal, Kristiansund, Molde, Trollstigen, Geiranger Fjord, Bergen and Geilo and finished up in Oslo. Have a look at some of our favourite pictures and enjoy the nature, that’s what Norway is all about.

The insane Trollstigen Mountain Road. Breathtaking.
Trollstigen (English: Troll’s Footpath) is a serpentine mountain road in Rauma, Norway, part of Norwegian National Road 63 connecting Åndalsnes in Rauma and Valldal in Norddal. It is a popular tourist attraction due to its steep incline of 9% and eleven hairpin bends up a steep mountain side. Trollstigen was opened on July 31, 1936, by King Haakon VII after 8 years of construction.
