Crossing the Venabygdsfjellet

Enjoying the first snow and sunny weather, we decided to cross the mountains North of Lillehammer called Venabygdsfjellet – a name you better copy and past then type in. But first, we came past a lovely stave church in Ringebu. The stave church at Ringebu was built around the year 1220 and is one of fewer …

Lovely little houses are especially found in Gamle Stavanger – the oldest part of town. The …
