Nee Bother

By Phil on 2015.08.01 In Norway

Had a great night out in Stavanger City last night. Wandered around the streets in the sun and having a few drinks along the way. At one point we were even being followed by a drone as we walked along the harbour front. Not sure what that was about.

After food we headed back to Nåløyet bar where we had met Jostein and Britt Victoria on Thursday night and where they play cool music and also have the most knowledgable bar staff I have ever met.

As Jason was getting our last drinks of the night he noticed he had no Norwegian cash left in his wallet so had to pay with his card. He then asked the barman if anyone had handed in any cash as he thought he must have dropped it at the bar earlier. Luckily enough someone had handed in the 1000 NOK (£80) he had dropped along with his hotel room key.

This morning I woke with a pain in my knee so didn’t really fancy a hard hike today, plus the weather forecast was for rain most of the day so we decided to head along coast and to Jaeren beach.

On the way to Jaeren beach we had to pass the place where we got our hire car from, so we thought maybe we should pop in and tell them about our little accident.

We weren’t going to mention the car incident as we had hoped to fix it ourselves, but after visiting the local scrap yards and the Toyota dealers with no success, we decided to tell the hire car company about the smashed fog light after reversing into a rubbish bin at the car park at Trolltunga.

Anyway the girl at hire place said its was no bother and was pleased we were honest and mentioned the light damage and even gave us discount on the rental for being honest, though we will still have to pay the cost of repair.

We continued the drive along Jaeren beach stopping off at various points for photos. One part of the beach in particular was packed with surfers and kite surfers all dressed like ninjas. It was a stunning coastline just a shame about the weather

Tonight is our last night in Stavanger so may as well have a few beers to end a great week of adventure. I love Norway!

Welcome to my blog about hiking, trekking, Fjällräven Polar 2014, in fact anything where you require boots and the outdoors.

My name is Phil, and following my outdoor epiphany which started in the summer of 2012 I’m now hooked on everything outdoors. So far my biggest treks have included the 250km Cathar Way, the 170km Tour du Mont Blanc and best of all, winning 1st place to take part in the Fjällräven Polar in April 2014.

I plan to use this blog to write about all my adventures, which will include my personal goal of becoming a Munroist (completing all 282 Scottish Munro mountains), summer treks, weekends in the Lakes and many more.

I like to try and make my blog posts humorous so I hope you enjoy reading and that I can put a smile on people’s faces while showing you some amazing places.

If you have any questions about the blog or the places I'm writing about, don't hesitate to contact me on: phil@philyourboots.com
