Travel Tips for Larvik
In the center
Larvik in really a tiny village in comparison with the others not only in Norway but around Europe too. This is due to the low number on inhabitants of this land. Of course most of then are concentrated into "great town" like Oslo and Bergen. In the picture you can see one of the largest square in Larvik, very simple architecture, a small fountain, close to the fjord and of course to the harbor.
Me in Larvik
Here you can see me in front of a little waterfall.
Larvik is famous because of this waterfall, and it depends on it's water: it is used and sold in every norwegian town. We can say that this water is the only one consumed in Norway. It easy to verify it, it is enough to enter in a pub or in a restaurant to see that most of the norwegians drink beer and wine (not that much becuase it is very expensive) and sometimes some orange juice.
traditional women's dress- old style
Every country and of course every region has a typical and traditional way to wear, during the local ceremonies. In this picture I try to show you the beauty of this women's dress (and a men's suit behing). Lars said this is an example of the old style for this kind of dress. Nota bene: They used green for women and red for men, maybe to create a cromatic contrast! I think the effect is great!
DALE of NORWAY
In Larvik you can find tons of pull over from DALE, the most important manufacuter and distributor of real norwegian pull over's style. DALE sponsored the norwegian ski team but it has many different collections of pulls for the family or for sportsmen. I'm crazy for the norwegian ski team and I was lucky to receive the original DALE of the team in 2002, you can see it in my picture that I put from the web because at this moment I can't scan it!!! But I can assure you I have the same pull ;-)
From Larvik, we went on to the town of Tonsberg where we walked along the waterfront before stopping for cappuccino and a snack.
We drove on through farmland and forests for 30 minutes until we arrived at Verdens Ende (The End of the World). Verdens Ende is located at the southernmost tip of the island of Tjome. It has a wonderful view of the Skagerrak, which is a strait that runs between Norway, Sweden, and the Jutland peninsula of Denmark. There are fishing boats and many islets and huge rocks out in the water for climbing. It looked like a great place to explore but it was extremely windy and really cold when we were there so we didn’t stay too long.
