Around Meråker

After a couple of days at Pstereo music festival, we needed some fresh air and empty space. Angeltjønnhytta, a cabin located at the lake Fjergen near Sweden, seemed to be a nice remote destination, with a lot of possibilities to pick berries, mushrooms and fish a trout. It was more challenging as expected, but perfect. 
Pstereo, nice rock festival in the middle of the city, on the bank of Nidelva river
Lake Feren, starting point of the trip
Lake Feren in the back. Belma already with several kg of mushrooms
getting late, still no lake. But hike is nice and day is long
finally, lake Fjergen. Unfortunatelly, water level is super low due to a hydro power plant down in the valley
cloudberry, an addictive berry. We got more than 2 kg of them. 

Cabin was perfect, without any people. And I did not forget the key, uf.
on the way back, one really hates the marshlands after a while
good bye from a cat and a sheep

Summer weekend

A tip for hiking near Aure - there is an amazing loop on Tustna island, with perfect views and some challenging vertical difference (from sea level to almost 900m  just on several kilometers distance). We climbed from Tustna cemetery to Skarven (896m), returning through Gullsteinsetra valley. It is also possible to go back along the opposite ridge, which looks quit dramatic.  The area is suitable for winter adventures too.

the area around the bridge between Sttablandet and Jørnøya is good for fishing macrels

Shanghai

Landing in Shanghai. The brown field is the sea...hmmm
I took Maglev train to the city centre. The speed was cool, but the desing and interior was not so impressive, especially compared with Shinkanzens

Last day

Last day in Japan, we visited the area near famous Kuromon Ichiba market and ate many delicatessen... Belma is flying  back to Norway and I am ready for World Transport Conference in Shanghai. Japan was perfect!

Day 12 - Relax

lake Biwa, nice escape destination from hot Kyoto. Clear water, empty beaches. We got massive sunburn and moved to Osaka later that day
Osaka - food capital of the world,  with 96 Michellin restaurants. On the picture there is a sushi "restaurant" for 3 standing people....
