Hi, it’s Jack Wolfpac, poetic travel correspondent at the Greenygrey. With the WWW three-week spectacular having taken precedence here, we’ve fallen behind with Marc Latham’s travel25years.wordpress.com website, which ended its Scandinavian journey on the same day as the WWW-3-week; by the way, we’d like a three-week working month at the Greenygrey; including a great greenygrey Stockholm fountain. My human parallel, Jack Kerouac, got a mention as well as Abba‘s Agnetha.
Eidfjord Greenygrey Journey
With a few hours to spare in the small town of Eidfjord, whose spectacular mountains were under thick cloud at the time, Marc walked a little up the mountain on a forest path.
Leaving humanity behind, and unable to see the spectacular, Marc had time to appreciate the beauty of the natural world that is often overlooked; a natural world that is often greenygrey.
Marc said that in a land dominated by awesome natural beauty, it was a time of quiet contemplation and reflection amongst nature that is often passed without being noticed.
However, once the outside world was forgotten, and the mind absorbed into the quiet surroundings; hearing only rushing water, and seeing only nature, time passed quickly, and there was not time to see it all, or to go farther into the greenygrey void.
Here’s some photos; you can enlarge them by clicking on them. There’ll be a more human discussion deriving from Eidfjord tomorrow:
