Spring weekend in Harstad


This weekend my stop is Harstad and Sortland in norhtern Norway. Travelling north to visit my family and new nephew. First leg of the journey is from Kristiansand KRS to Oslo Gardermoen OSL, changing flight there and Evenes EVE is my final destination. Norwegian ariline will take me there for a reasonable price. I will spend one day in Harstad before taking Hurtigruten from Harstad to Sortland where my sister and her family lives. Here is the photos for your inspiration. For more ideas of what to do when visting Harstad check this website.

After watching too many episodes of air crash investigation I always prefer to sit next to the wings of the aircraft. If it is a better chance to survive a unexpected situation I do not really know.


My street in the north, the playground have not been used in many years as the kids in the neighrborhood have all grown up.

Home to home made strawberry jam on home made slices of bread with enough butter on, lovely.


Enjoying the view over Harstad city centre from a cafe, this is not the most busy town I have been to.


Harstad harbour, still a quiet place.


Harstad city streets, this building houses a chineese restaurant now, in my young days it had one of the most popular clubs in Harstad.


One of the residents here have a good sense of humor, I do not really know witch one of them.

My niece is so happy with the birthdaygift I got for her, this stereo makes her reach a lot of new places.
