Svolvær, Norway

Personal highlights

  1. Svolvær: important fishing village on the Lofoten archipelago
  2. Svolværgeita: standing firm in the North and overlooking the city
  3. Hiking: probably my longest solo hike on my European road trip
  4. Name: probably a combination of cool or chilly and fishing village
  5. Lofoten: driving all the way from Å north to the mainland Norway
