Norway / Lofoten & Vesterålen / Cycling

I managed to stay dry in my bivouac but I wake up early. I don’t feel like staying here and making breakfast and try my luck to find a breakfast in Kabelvåg. And boy was I lucky, sure I had to kill an hour or so until the bakery opened but there was an German bakery. There is also an old telephone booth which functions as free library. If you don’t already know Bookcrossing you should check it out. I recommend also that you visit the gallery Lille Kabelvåg.
I have a stroll trough Svolvær visited a couple of little galleries which were nice. There are some nice restaurants too but I just hat this decent breakfast in Kabelvåg and as wet and to be honest smelly I was I didn’t feel suitable for a restaurant.
I continued along the E10 and was looking forward to get on a more quiet road, the FV888 just after Austnesfjorden rasteplass, where you definitely should take a stroll to the viewpoint.
The FV888 is absolutely wort a ride. Beautiful landscapes all the way from Vestpollen to Fiskebøl. Since I didn’t feel like pitching my tent in the rain I was hoping that the cyclist shelter at Grunnfør wasn’t occupied which it wasn’t so I moved right in.
