“Around the World in Analogue” is your bite-size guide to the most amazing travel destinations across the globe, as documented by the members of the Lomography community. Today, lomographer Claire Devos (@kler) recalls her one-year adventure to Norway with nothing but a bag of clothes and an instant camera.
Two summers ago, I left for a one-year trip to Norway with not much more than a bag full of clothes and an instant camera. It was a breathtaking experience. I will never forget how I felt on top of that mountain, breathing in the crisp air. How pretty the sunset was above the lake. The freedom.
I learned a lot during the journey. I discovered that I would have to find some warm clothes if I wanted to survive the long cold winter months. I finally found out the difference between roe deer, red deer, and reindeer. I was taught how to swear in Norwegian. But above all, I learned not to trust the “This hike should be easy manageable by kids.” sign in the guide book. I wouldn’t call a seven-hour hike on a narrow path, hundreds of meters above the ground family-friendly. But what do I know? Maybe all Norwegian kids are super babies, crawling up mountains as soon as they are born.
