I listen to Pulpit Rock

We took a Sunday-walk to Preikestolen, The Pulpit Rock. A two hour long walk, or actually hike in the mountain. Two hours up and two hours down, so 4 hour long hike. The walk involves gorgeous nature, slippery rocks, stony paths, tough climbs, swimming areas and a whole bunch of lost tourists. I felt bad for wearing joggers instead of my lovely mountain boots, but my conscience cleared when I saw people in sandals, high heels and flat clothing shoes. There was even a girl in ballerina shoes, carrying a Michael Kors handbag. Couldn’t help but smile when I saw her. Anyways. It is a trip recommended for everyone to experience at least once in a lifetime. This time was my fourth. It was also the first time I managed to fall and hurt myself a couple of times. It is a hamless, but tough hike, but one has to be careful. Especially when carrying iPhones and falling. Mine broke. Poor guy. There isn’t really a lot to say about the hike itself, the pictures say a lot more than what I can possibly write.

Ashti didn’t manage to take a picture of me, so the matter had to be taken into own hands. Once again.
Norwegian nature, once again
