The Zoots band Wiltshire visit Norway
Last week The Zoots band Wiltshire were lucky enough to spend the night in Norway. It was out of this world beautiful and amazing. We left Heathrow and got a plane to Oslo. We then caught a short flight in a *tiny* plane to a place called Sandane in the middle of the fjords. It is one of the most dangerous airports in the world but we survived! The plane had two little propellors and only took about 40 passengers. We had one of the most beautiful taxi rides through the fjords headed toward a small village called Loen, even the drizzle couldn’t dampen our mood. We climbed mountains before returning to sea level to make our way around the fjords, through tunnels and along the roads by the fjords. It was a short distance to be covered but due to all of the water we had to take the long way round and we were grateful for it. There were beautiful waterfalls everywhere. The houses were incredible, everything was just amazing, and we just simply couldn’t capture or take in the beauty of it all. Dumbfounded by the scenery, we arrived at the hotel. It was like walking in to a painting. After a bite to eat (needless to say it was one of the tastiest meals we’ve ever had – “That was *the best* hamburger I’ve ever eaten‘, exclaimed Stuart) we headed outside for a short walk and to take in the views. The air was so clean. It was one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen (apologies for the over use of the word but its the only way I can really describe it). It stayed light until about 1am and even then it was barely dark. We took so many photos trying to really capture the essence of the place. It’s something we wont forget, ever. We’re so lucky to be able to visit places like this whilst doing what we love. Words fail to do this amazing place justice so I’ll let the pictures to all the talking.
We also had a quick stop in Stavanger where we flew back from.
The band are very busy this year and have a lot of exciting shows coming up and have been booked at The Royal Theatre, The Alhambra Theatre, The Metropolis Theater, the wedding band for a wedding in Berkshire, a charity ball in Windsor, a Christmas party in Oxford, Cambridge University, a Halloween show, a wedding band in Wantage, wedding band at Celtic Manor, a wedding in Priston Mill as a wedding band, a wedding in the Midlands, Hertfordshire and we are also going to Pisa in Italy and Lisbon in Portugal for a 60s show!
