When I started my Caffe Avec-blog I wanted it to be a blog for travels. A place where I, and you, could sit down, enjoy some coffee and may be a cake together, and talk about travels. Running more than one blog properly has proved to be a task beyond my ability, so most of the time Caffe Avec has been quiet......and very, very lonely.
I still have a dream to make it my travel blog though, and one day I know I will succeed.
For the moment I can at least post a few of my caffe avec-posts both at Britt-Arnhild's House in the Woods and at Caffe Avec.......
....and a morning at the tiny little Norwegian village of Solvorn, near Sognefjorden, might be a good choice for both blogs.
Solvorn, with its white painted houses, is a place where time seem to stand still. A place where you automatically slow down your steps, you stop to smell the roses, or to look at the tiny little ferry when it comes in and the few cars in the queue have to board backwards to make the unboarding on the other side of the fjord easier.
We came to Solvorn to spend our anniversary night at Walaker Hotel. We left Solvorn many hours later refreshed, blessed, filled with beauty and serenity.
My creativity chest, my basket for travel tales, fastly fills up. Sweetly nourished by a few kisses behind a red wall. Not troll kisses this time.
What a blessing that places like this still excist.
A place to charge your battery.
A place to remember.
It doesn't really matter.
How you spend what you have been given.
The coffee is finished, the cake all eaten.
Thanks you for sharing a few minutes of your time with me.
