Travel Tips for Larvik
This was the first time I used a currency so different from my own (The GBP and Euro are similiar enough to the Australian dollar for me to relate easily to them). I actually thought the currency was nice, and now have enough '1 Krone' coins left to make myself a bracelet (don't know if I'm actually going to do that).
The coast surrounding Larvik and other cities are crowded with Viking remains. This graveyard is located a bit outside Larvik on a hill and dates from the 3rd century AD.
The stones are placed so that they form an oval shape. Because it was already almost dark when i got there it was rather spooky
Norway has a great tradition about coloured and delicious houses. In every village you can see them and the reason to me is a simly one: to the north inhabitans have the chance to see the sun and the light in general just few months a year, so they build up coloured houses just to fight the challenge with the darkness and the white snow; this is a "cure" versus the psychological effects of the bad weather I suppose...Any norwegian can confirm or not my opinion ;-))
and the new style..
And after the old style you can see here the new one. The colours don't change soo much, the green is still the main colour of this dress. But if you look at the cap you can see that it changes, we can say is a completely different model.
Before coming to Larvik, or any area of Norway (especially if you are coming from a country where your currency exchange isn't very good) try to buy any luxury items you may want before you come, or better yet duty free - and this does include alcohol as it costs a bomb here!
