Mr. “Let’s stay on a budget” screeches to a stop at the first bakery sighting in Norway. Interesting how the stomach trumps the mind. Lucky we have ski touring to burn off calories.

Guess that pastry.

Guess that pastry, Norway.

Is there some reason the word 'bakery' is nearly the same in every country we visit?

The view is wonderful next to the fjord. Hey Lou, which way are you supposed to be pointing the camera?

    The tools are grindstones for making flour.

    I’ve made many epic early morning stops at that fantastic bakery! Also check out: Jostedalen for some of the nicest norwegians and glacial vistas (and good skiing) you can run into

    Eric, indeed, the tool that built modern mankind! Andreas, thanks for chiming in, nice region indeed! Lou

    That drive from Lom was amazing wasn’t it?

  5. Lisa Dawson May 13th, 2015 2:19 am

    Jernej, our drive everywhere in Norway was amazing. Such a beautiful country and we love the extensive system of little roads that access the mountains. I am totally smitten!

    When’s the “Marble Bakeri” opening?!

    I’d love to get some kanelsnurrs and go touring!

  7. Lou Dawson 2 May 13th, 2015 10:25 am

    Working on it! Perhaps you’ll be the counter guy? Baking can be more tun than skiing. Lou

    Focus people, no one has even tried to name the pastry ;o)

    According to an online translation whatsit Donut is the same in English as Norwegian. I’d suggest some kind of berry flavouring.

    Eric, what’s Norwegian for grindstones?

    My planned Norway trip had to be postponed due to family stuff, so looking forward to the upcoming posts on Lou/Lisa’s experiences and planning a future trip.

    Frame, grindstone in Norwegian is kvaernstein. But, in the spelling, the “ae” is really a single letter that we do not have in the English alphabet.

    Lou and Lisa, I drove past that bakery last time there. Next time I’ll stop. I am guessing you crossed Sognfjell and down to Lustrafjord. I hope you got some touring along the way around Turtagro, another great area.

  11. Lisa Dawson May 14th, 2015 12:31 am

    No one guessed it yet. Hint, the name of the pastry is deceptively simple.

  12. Kaj May 14th, 2015 1:10 am

    Looks like a skoleboller to me!
    You guys heading to the north for skiing? Snowline is still at 200 metres around Narvik as of today 🙂

    Hi Kaj, we’re actually on the “delayed action blogging plan” as we traveled quite a bit in Norway and didn’t have time to do much writing. Look for more Norway posts any day now.

    We found the skiing in southern Norway to be amazing. While I can see visiting north, it’s obviously not essential to go north to enjoy Norwegian ski touring. Reminds me of Chamonix and the Alps, where everyone seems to think you have to go to Chamonix to enjoy Alps ski touring, while in reality there are actually hundreds of other places.


  15. Kaj May 14th, 2015 6:49 am

    Very true Lou! The number of mountains per capita in Norway is pretty astonishing, and quality ski touring zones are a dime a dozen. Plenty of exploring to do!
    But there’s something about late spring in the north: skiing easily accessed but wild mountains down to sea level under the midnight sun is pretty hard to beat.
    Looking forward to the rest of your Norway posts.

    I’m with Ptor. It’s a doughnut.

  17. Greg Louie May 14th, 2015 9:38 am

    gelé smultring

  18. anon May 14th, 2015 10:14 pm

    That’s definitely a donut.

  19. Jim Milstein May 18th, 2015 1:25 pm

    I should know. Those “grindstones” are mill stones.

    Glad to see that Mr and Ms Wild Snow have not fallen to the anti-gluten delusion. Gluten is good: it holds you together. No one wants to come unglued.

  20. john May 19th, 2015 5:26 am

    you welcome for the tip

  21. Lou Dawson 2 May 19th, 2015 10:22 am

    Jim, we’ve actually discovered that going wheat free is quite nice and we do it at home, but we don’t bother while traveling. Kills all the fun.

    The gluten issue is not a delusion, but for most people it’s actually a matter of consuming or giving up wheat, not necessarily gluten.

    Beautiful Norway! Wonderful photos!
