- Funny weekend with a Spanish volunteer –
This weekend a volunteer from near Barcelona, Enric, who we know from the on-arrival seminar in Balestrand, visited us in Nordfjordeid. He is currently doing his EVS in Vinstra, a little place in the east of Norway, and decided to drop by. So we picked him up at the bus station at 8 o’clock in the morning, even if it was way too early to get up on a Saturday (my opinion) – but what should I have done? ;)
After we had breakfast and Barbara joined us, we went to work. Another public event wanted to be hosted by us fabulous volunteers ;) I already told you about the opening of the ‘Sagaparken’ a few weeks ago, and yesterday laying the foundation for the museum there, which is supposed to be finished in 2019, was celebrated. You will see a reproduction of a Viking ship in its original size by then, which was found in Nordfjordeid. Its name is ‘Myklebustskipet’ and with a length of 30m it is the biggest Viking ship they ever found in Norway (and people around here are so proud of it). During all the speeches we distributed gingerbread and hot punch in the temporary hall, where the ship will be built. But even with a blanket wrapped around us, we froze all the time and were really happy when we could go home :D
In the evening we went over to Barbara’s place (because of a lack of space in ours) and Enric cooked for us. It was really nice of him and actually really good. We talked all night long, played games and had a lot of fun. That is why it got later and later and we only woke up around lunchtime today ;) So I started making pancakes for breakfast or lunch, whatever, and I was really surprised when I heard that Artur and Enric never ate it before – but they liked it a lot, so it was just fine :) Afterwards both went for a walk and I stayed at home with Barbara, who is currently hurt, and Oleksandr started preparing a stew for dinner.
Right now we are waiting for them to come back and we will see what the day ahead holds. In any case it is good to have visit and we spent a nice weekend together :)
Ha ein fin dag også!
