Judging from your blog, it seems you took a lot more gravel and dirt roads, which I would have loved to be able to. But there are some routes we have in common. Lucky you, having dry roads on Trollstigen.

Let's hope our grandchildren will still be able to do the same. I recently saw a documentary about Christmas truce during World War 1. On Christmas 1914, french and german soldiers along the Western Front stopped fighting each other, some starting to play football or sing carols together. Of course, after realizing how little differences they had, many soldiers refused to pick up fighting again next day. War went on of course after penalties being enforced by officers, but there is some deep truth in this story, I think.
