Briefly Back

I was wandering through Instagram yesterday evening, waiting for the rest of my family to return from a rest of my family outing. It didn’t take long before I found this breathtaking image on the VisitBergen timeline:

What a view.
I was transported back to May and those halcyon few days that we spent exploring that little bit of the west coast of Norway.

Sadly, this was merely bittersweet, pseudo-escapism though, as I was brought firmly back to the dark reality of the Cape Town evening by the beagle farting as it wandered past me and into the kitchen in search of food.

The trouble is, as I remarked beneath this vaguely similar (i.e. of some fjords near Bergen) photo:

I desperately want to go back, but equally, I desperately don’t: there’s simply no way that a return visit could ever be so perfect.

But the need to see more of Scandinavia is real.
I’m even beginning to consider adding an Iceland2017 category to the blog…
