  1. Those are tremendous pics. Can’t tell you how much I’ve wanted to go to Norway and Sweden for a very long time. Looks like I’ve found where to go 🙂

  2. Separated from civilization by some of the most inspiring views, you have to wonder what it would be like to live there, even if only for a short while. Gorgeous pictures.
