Last year I described my surprise at Norway's Big July Shutdown, when pretty much the entire country takes their vacation. This year, I was a little more prepared for it.
My family joined me for a few weeks and we travelled around some of Norway's prettiest places. We took in two UNESCO World Heritage sites – the Næerøyfjord and Røros – and experienced every weather condition known to man, from torrential rainstorms to glorious sunshine, and everything in between.
There's so much I want to write about every aspect of this trip, but for now I'll just let the pictures do the talking.
