Rain, swamp and sandy beach
As we shoulder our backpacks at the car and make our way across the golf course of Lofoten Golf Links, a cold wind blows around our noses and the fine droplets of the persistent drizzle make us shiver. My thoughts drift away on the first meters of our excursion to activities that I could imagine better in this weather and cold 5°C. For example, a warm shower, a drink, a drink, or a drink in the morning. For example, a warm shower, a hot cup of coffee or a sunny spot somewhere in the south? Imagination is already a great thing, but after just a few minutes I’m already back in the here and now, because the path requires my full attention. A muddy hiking trail, coupled with slippery roots and swampy puddles so large that we have to keep taking long detours to get through halfway dry on foot is not the right place to roam through nature lost in thought.
