Scenic Railway Oslo to Bergen Norway

We recently took the Oslo to Bergen Norway scenic railway. Some say it is one of the most scenic rail systems in the world. We started in Oslo Norway. The train went through Oslo suburbs and started it journey into the countryside. As it climbed the foothills, there was snow everywhere. After a while we were among beautiful lakes on both sides of the train. Then we ascended above the tree line and into a deep snow and mountain peak world. It was a wilderness but so peaceful. We chose Comfort+ Class, which gave us bigger and more comfortable seats for the journey and free coffee or tea.

Come ride the train with us in this YouTube video:

Why is Italy so Beautiful?

Italy is a magical place but why is the countryside so beautiful? Italy has wonderful beaches. it has the most majestic mountains. It was formed from very violent volcano and earthquake events over millions of years. The result is a land of dramatic mountains. In many places they are impassable! You have to drive around them sometimes adding hours to your time.

We live in southern  Campania and the mountains there are steep and sharp. It is amazing to awake each day to their majesty. You have to repeat them while you are in total awe of them. These mountains are what creates the small mountain towns we love so much. Be careful on the mountain roads. They are steep with hairpin curves and many times there are no guard rails. The reward is an isolated town of beauty. People may stare at you because they are not used to seeing strangers but they are friendly.

Go and explore the mountains and towns. No tour bus can go here. Be an explorer and see the uncharted Italy. You will be rewarded with fantastic mountains and great memories.
