THE JOURNEY TO NORWAY WITH MY WIFE, KASIA AND MY DAUGHTER POLA

We planned our expedition for 17 days. We started from Oslo. Pola was amazed with Norway. And we were collecting new experience at every step and we were learning how to travel with a child. Some dangerous situation could not be avoided – Pola put her little hand into the closing lift door. Luckily nothing happened.

We learned that you need to be patient with the child during the journey and plan each stage of your trip thoroughly. You need to pack all the necessary stuff and there is more of it when you travel with a kid. You need some extra food even if you are going to a city. When we arrived at Oslo it turned out that almost all the stores would be closed for the next five days due to Easter time. Buying food for the child turned out to be quite a problem.

From Oslo I headed to the north with Wojtek Ostrowski and TV team, to Finnmarksvidda, the “Country of Big Sky” where the autochtonic people of the northern ends of Europe live. We went there alone. Kasia, advised by the doctors as she was pregnant at that time, had to go back to Poland with Pola.

Then we went to the Lofoten islands on the eastern coast of Norway. The Lofoten are hills and peaks arising over the open sea, rough and virgin terrains, a paradise for views and nature lovers.

Then we went to the south again, to Myrdal where Flamsbana, a mountain railway operates. Its route runs 20 kilometer through the valley, along waterfalls, among the mountains, going through 20 tunnels. We came back from there to Oslo and then to Poland.

When we were going to Norway we realized that Kasia and Pola would not be able to take part in every stage of the trip. Still, we wanted to do something together, leave even for a little while rather than sit at home. We could spend couple of days with our daughter – wake up together, eat and share our experience. Pola was getting familiar with Oslo – new situations, people and animals. Her world was becoming more reach, interesting, it would get more colours, sounds and impressions.
