Hi you all! Group 1 has now been in Flørli and it was just great! Such a nice group of people – a lovely mixture that somehow fitted well together. The weather was fantastic and we woke up to sun every day. Working on the power-hall came along well and we started painting by the end of the week. Arvid has now taken over as the team leader of group 2 and apparently, they are almost done painting this huge building.
Despite our zeal and working enthousiasm, we have also been enjoying long, sunny evenings on the shore of the fjord. Fishing, going out with the boat, grilling or simply relaxing and reading a book. On our free days, we were hiking up the 4.444 stairs that Flørli is so well known for. Up there, nothing reminds of the world below – crystal clear lakes, the last snow (sledding!) and far views from the mountain tops. We also had a trip to the famous Kjerag – a 1000m big wall towering over the Lysefjord.
20th May – another trip to Flørli to prepare for the summer!
A couple of days earlier I was there to show the café to some people who consider running it. Then there was a Belgian insurance company there for an event – those who made it to the top of the stairs got a little surprise, namely the helicopter bringing them back down.
When I now came, the fjord was all calm and the ride in was awesome. See the video! Nobody was there in the village, apart from some kayakers and a herd of sheep. Sound of the river, gentle breeze on the fjord and an eagle overhead. Spent that afternoon and yesterday cleaning the four apartments – lots of dead flies and dust after a long winter. Now all looks spick and span! The food and other necessities are in place and I brought some of the equipment we’re going to use. The whole car was packed full, yet I probably need another two rides before everything is there. Looking forward to see you soon!
