    Beer shop

    Beer shop

    This is a remnant from older times (not that much older!) when norwegian alcohol politics was a lot more restrictive than it is today. Beer was not for sale anywhere, in some municipalities it was totally forbidden, in others you had to go to a special beer shop to buy it. Some of these beer shops still remain, even though you can now buy beer in any shop (almost). To get wine or liquor you still have to go to the Vinmonopol, which you do not find everywhere!

    This beer shop is situated right by Sagodden Kro at Neslandsvatn.

    Means of transport

    Spark

    This is a "spark" (kicksled), which is a very good means of transport on icy roads. One person standing on the runners moves the spark by kicking the ground. The spark was commonly used for transportation of goods and people in older times. Nowadays roads are usually sanded or salted for the benifit of car drivers, which makes the use of the spark difficult, thus it is mostly used for play. The spark is common all over Norway.
