Wanderlusting: Scandinavian Fjords

Okay, so I know I am currently in Australia.
I quit my job, sold everything I owned and came out here with my other half on a years working holiday visa.
‘Living the dream’ as some might say!

However, we are currently in the middle of nowhere, living in a storage container and working hard to save up for the next leg of the adventure (which will be AWESOME!)

But until then I’m keeping myself sane by looking up the next travel destination, the next place on my wishlist. The place that I spend hours googling flights and hotels for, and obsessively pin on Pinterest.

Be honest now, look at these pictures and tell me you wouldn’t want to go here too.

I am Wanderlusting hard for those views and that serenity.

I would love to see Norway, Denmark and Sweden (and also Iceland and Greenland, although I know they technically aren’t scandinavian countries!) and would also love to take a cruise so it’s a big dream of mine to combine the two!

They are like something out of a Fairytale or a Disney movie.

A place so beautiful the sun is reluctant to set, if you go in the summer you’ll benefit from near endless light and a chance to see the incredible phenomenon of the ‘midnight sun’.

But if you go in winter there is the chance to see the magical northern lights or ‘aurora borealis’, whilst snuggling under a blanket on deck with a loved one and drinking hot chocolate.

I think I’ll maybe have to go twice to experience it all and make the most of the beautiful countries in sunshine and snow!

I found all of the above pictures on Pinterest and do not own any of them, couldn’t trace the original photographers so if you took the pictures please let me know so I can commend you on your camera skills, credit you and or link to you on here, and generally pick your brain about what your trip was like!
