        Back on the coach we pulled into Gjovik for the night. Our hotel was conveniently located next door to the club of town. It was very very handy for the short stumble home in the wee hours of the morning (via a dirty kebab store).

Unfortunately no moose or any other animals, but further down the road we came to a very old road that lead down to the river and some remains of a bridge. What ...
