Part 2/3 of the Norway trip

So we woke up early the next day(around 8am, while for the past few days we have been waking up at 5+am), and went down to meet the mysterious guy who managed to drove from the other end of Narvik to Du Yuan's place. We bade Du Yuan farewell and shortly after, we met the mysterious guy, ANDREW KOH!
He is a really friendly and open dude! =D

His travels are probably way more interesting than mine! =D
Anyway he drove for around 4 to 5 hours around the fjords to lofoten and once again I am taken aback by the gorgeous views.
" How great would it be, if my old friends in SG were here with me" I thought throughout the entire drive. But after awhile i realized I was missing out something: I wasn't opening myself to new friendships and has not accepted the fact that several of my friends pungseh me for exchange-> either went already or withdraw after application. D:<
Nonetheless the view was therapeutic and it helped to ease my bitterness much to spend some quality time with these friendly dudes.
Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.
So after 5 long hours, we arrived at our cabin! It cost about $50 sgd per person per day I think, and the for the car used for our travel is around $50 +SGD for the 3 days.
We can't do much in Lofoten, neither did we saw the Northern lights for the 2 days because the area was too cloudy. The wind was too strong and it was too early for summer activities. Nonetheless, we drove around the 5 small towns and had an awesome experience trying to be professional photographers for the 2 days!
PS: Pardon for the wet lens, it was too windy and rainy!
Food at Lofoten - Cost around 30 to 40 Sgd each
We went back to Narvik on the last day, after we left Andrew at the airport to return our vehicle, visited the Narvik War Museum and headed back to the EVENES airport to catch our flight back to Oslo.
