A journey to the Norwegian cradle of jazz =)

The pictures:
1. Walking to the bus.
2. Happy and great view.
3. Two of three concerts we'll go to.

Having practiced packing tent in rain we got to test it today, after a breakfast of oats we left for Molde.
The route:
- Walk from Ã…ndalsnes camping to the city's bus stand. 25min (with back packs).
- Bus to Molde 101,-/person (www.nor-way.no), but exit at Kviltorp camping where we'll stay as the weather is wet and we trust this to be a safer choice than the festival jazzCamp.
   - The bus ride includes a ferry ride crossing the fjord.
   - A very nice view of the surrounding fjord, mountains, greenery and water falls.

Kviltorp is about 40 min walk from the city centre. The road passes by a shopping area where we got some needed equipment.

Molde, the city of roses is one of the stoppovers for hurtigruten.no, we had been here before we realized ;)

Starting to get sleepy during day time now..
