Ferry to Larvik, Norway Day 96

I took the ferry to Norway today. Thankfully it was an uneventful crossing. I’m prone to seasickness, and this is the North Sea, known for its wind and its swells, so I was extremely grateful that it was a nice and calm day. A friend did the crossing to Kristiansiand a couple of weeks ago […]
