A scenic and cultural gem in southwest Norway


I am currently going through a phase of feeling homesick in my Expat experience in Denmark. The word “homesick” may have negative connotations for some, but not for me. I see it as a sign of still having a sense of belonging and warm feelings for my home country and that I have not burned any bridges to Norway.

21-Uten navnFeeling homesick led me to browse through some old photos from home, and I figured I’d share some with you.  Here are pictures from a visit we made to Obrestad Fyr (old lighthouse where you can rent a room) and Hå Gamle Prestegard (old Vicarage now housing art/cultural/handicraft events and exhibitions) a few years ago. It is a great venue for outings and to explore the coastline along southwest Norway.

If you are in the area – make sure you stop by. Enjoy!

  1. Stunning photos. I’ve been suffering homesickness lately as well. It’s difficult to be a wandering soul sometimes when all you want is the familiarity of home. I wish I could take my family everywhere.:)

  2. Interesting. Your photos are nice, the one’s with the wrapped bales of grass caught my eye laying on their sides, in New Zealand we stack them standing up.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment! Yeah I have seen them both ways over here. Also some that has been laid out in a pattern and painted on, thats rather cool, I think 🙂 Wishing you a great day in Kiwi-land (which is totally on my bucket-list BTW)

  3. Some beautiful photos there. I understand too. Last year I travelled solo an awful lot for family reasons and now I get very anxious if I’m away from home any longer than a few days. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you! I do recommend a tour of the fjords on the west coast, and also the islands up north. It’s a costly conuntry to vacation in, but totally worth it! (I AM biased, though…) 🙂

  4. Looks nice! Even though I’m from a country village, with plenty of hay fields, for one second, I thought you’d posted a picture of giant marshmallows — maybe they fell off a cargo ship and swelled up in the ocean. 🙂

  5. Oh wow, those photos are so lovely. I am from Nova Scotia, so I am biased to a more rugged coastline! Give me rocky shores any day.

    I particularly like how you frame homesickness. I’d never consider that you can look at it in such a positive, and slightly romantic way.

    • You know, Norway isn’t going anywhere, and I can visit or return whenever I want. I think knowing that, makes dealing with homesickness way easier. Thank you for your kind comment 🙂
