Cabins are a way of life in Norway. Most families have some type of humble abode that they escape to either in the winter or summer months or sometimes both. Norwegians take every opportunity they can to enjoy the outdoors and experience the nature around them. We have been waiting years to be able to enjoy the family cabin. My father-in-law has been building their cabin since before Robin and I started dating which was 13 years ago. He wanted to do it himself. Robin is so excited that it is finished that I wasn’t in the country but two days before he had planned for us to go up the mountain to the cabin. It might had something to do with the fact that the snowmobile season is coming to an end as well. With pretty much 24 hours of daylight now you can go up at any hour. Although when your not used to the sun it can mess with your head some.
We borrowed Robin’s Uncle’s snowmobile, which was really nice, it had hand warmers which I loved. The ride up the mountain was nice and easy. We took our time getting to the cabin since it was just the two of us. I actually drove for a while too!
Up at the cabin I got everything unloaded while Robin got the fire started. The cabin is not a luxurious place but it is very cozy. There is no electricity, no water, and no cell service. It’s a place to relax, play board games, and talk.
I loved the quiet and being away from everything. The view is beautiful!
When the fog rolled in it was breathtaking however visibility sucked.
The trip down the mountain wasn’t as easy because it was raining which wasn’t fun. It was a great first trip up to the cabin. I’m excited about all the future family trips up to the cabin both this summer and next winter!
