You won't believe me how I decided for that travel. I had read an advertisment in the newspaper.It was stated : I'm looking for female traveller for three weeks time .We will go from Ljubljana to Nordkapp and back. I will drive , you will cook.

At first look it wasn't so attractive.But then I said to myself - Why not ? Let's try.

We met and he said there were 2 more candidates.At the end he chose me and after 2 months we departed.

Preparations lasted for about 2 months because the route was long - more than 10.000 km. I had only 3 weeks available so I had to make really good travel plan.My first task was to visit Norway and go the most northern part of Europe.

I was brave enough to risk going with total stranger on a travel where you cannot escape for a minute. Sometimes it was really hard .But we managed to solve problems and it was really interesting travel.

    What an unusual journey you had here with a stranger! Super tips about the ski jump and the glacier! I hope to see more glaciers up close before they're all gone.
