TRY NOT TO FALL

For those who like me enjoy hiking, Preikestolen, or also known as the Pulpit Rock in Norway is an easy and recommended spot. After 6km of irregular terrain and under a lot of rain, 350m high of altitude from the starting point and about 3 hours (yes, I stopped often for photos), I was able to reach the top. The path is well marked with direction signs so it's impossible to get lost. To get here, it's quite simple, just take the ferry from Stavanger to Tau and then a bus directly from Tau ferry dock to Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, which takes about one hour. There are a lot of stories regarding this place, mostly about people falling down (not sure about it, just for tourists perhaps), while getting close to the edge for photos. In a bad day, like the one I had, it's plausible that such situations may occur because of strong winds in the fjords. The view is, as you imagine, breathtaking and worth of the hike, which can take a full day including transportation to and from Stavanger.

Note: please don't fall down while taking selfies.
