Cross Country Ski trails are natural to a Norwegian. Bur as an Englishman it is an exciting way to explore the landscape. Our new home this year has had snow fall enough to open up the cross country ski trails on our doorstep. Farmland becomes places you can just put your ski's on your feet and cruise. It is truly what I love about this great country despite missing home . A reminder of how beutiful mother earth is in all its seasons. I had a really good Cross Country Ski coach last year for a few days and although I still ski like a man from a damp, often cold but mostly rainy land. I have to say it is one of the things that makes dark winters really enjoyable here.
