Driving in the rain

 

We are  driving towards Bergen from Geilo along Hardangerfjord on national tourist route 7, a distance of about 250 kms.

Geilo to bergen

 

 

The road is narrow at some points, good but curvy, but the traffic is not much. It is a beautiful drive. But it takes a long time.

The speed limit is 80 or 70 mostly and in towns it becomes 60 and 50.

So we are driving at a slow pace. Stopping a few times to see the waterfalls and eat lunch or just like that.

It has been raining continuously today.

Everything looks different in the rain. The clouds are hanging so low, just above the water!

This new bridge opened just yesterday. Earlier this was a ferry crossing.

Water is gushing down the mountain slopes onto the roads.
