This year we decided to go camping and the kids looked forward to it. We didn’t know exactly where we would go but at least visit a few amusementparks. We first headed towards Kongeparken in Stavanger, the sea-way with Fjord1.
We set up camp in Kongeparken Camping, a simple but super place. We stayed there for three days. A few minutes drive to Vaulen Beach from there.
We had a great time in Kongeparken
Polehunting in Ålgard
Then we went south to Kristiansand and set up camp in Roligheden Camping – a pearl with a beautiful place to bath. The camp itself was a bit torn down, last refurbished in 1981.
Dyreparken i Kristiansand Zoo
Nordic animals in the warm weather were seeking shelter in the shadows
After the zoo we needed to chill down and have a bath so we aimed for Bø Summerland, a great amusing park in Telemark. On the way we found a fun place to stay over in Drangedal. An old school rebuilt as a Bed and Breakfast. That was a great experience and a short drive to Bø Summerland.
The kids had lots of fun all day in the great weather. When we came back to Henseid School later they took a swim again in a nearby lake. Magical days.
We forgot to take photos in Bø, I just found a snap I saved. 🙂
Since we now had visited Kongeparken, Kristiansand Zoo and Bø Summerland we thought we might as well visit Tusenfryd near Oslo – a large amusing park.
We set up our tent in Ekeberg Camping near Oslo, the camp used for Norway Cup. 🙂 A beautiful place with a view of Oslo city. The staff there is incredibly nice and the whole place has a nice and relaxing atmosphere. We’re getting trained tent-pitchers now, this is what we manage to setup before the kids got out of the car. 🙂
Only our middle-princess dared to take this one
Fun to see Asgeir again in Burnout stuntshow
The boss of all bosses – Asgeir
Speedmonster is the thoughest rollercoaster I’ve ever tried, Thundercoaster was fun too
And then we went back to camp and rested
Also some time for polehunting again and a trip through the park
Before we went northwest again we visited Oslo and =Kaffe for great coffee.
We split the trip home in half and stayed at Liodden Camping for a night, it has risen from its death! A cozy place with lovely surroundings.
Two fantastic weeks in tent (and some cabin) – 1300 kilometer driving. 🙂
