Make voyages. Attempt them. There’s nothing else.

– Tennessee Williams –
______________________________________


Taken from Camino Real by Tennessee Williams: “Lately,” Lord Byron says, “I’ve been listening to hired musicians behind a row of artificial palm trees instead of the single pure stringed instrument of my heart. For what is the heart, but a sort of instrument that translates noise into music, chaos into order. Make voyages, attempt them, there’s nothing else.

I hope Tennessee Williams has inspired you to start planning your next adventure. Go out and see the world! Could you imagine your feet dangling over the edge at Trolltunga (‘Troll’s tongue), some 2,000 feet above the valley floor? I couldn’t. I would love to experience the thrill of it personally!

According to the Official Travel Guide to Norway:

Trolltunga is one of the most spectactular scenic cliffs in Norway. Trolltunga is situated about 1100 meters above sea level, hovering 700 metres above lake Ringedalsvatnet in Skjeggedal. The view is breathtaking. The hike goes through high mountains, takes 8-10 hours in total (to Trolltunga and return) and the ascent is about 900 meters.The hike is usually possible to do from mid June, depending on when the snow melts in the mountains. Normally one can hike to Trolltunga until mid September. Consider carefully whether you are in good enough shape and have the right equipment before setting out. Plan carefully and start early in the day. There is no mobilephone coverage along the route.
