Vardö will you say now, where is that? Well, Vardö is a community already quite far out on the North Atlantic coast of Norway. Nothing special. The Hurtigruten ship hangs here for about 15 minutes and then continues to Kirkenes.
There is a lousy hotel in Vardö, but above all there is the witch's memorial of the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor and the French-American sculptor Louise Bourgeois, The memorial was also the destination of my long drive to Vardö. Very impressive what is shown there, a long, simple corridor, sparsely lit, equipped with 91 plaques, for the 91 victim of witchcraft. Dark and almost a little scary, you can hardly describe it, you have seen and experienced. In addition a glassy, smoke-black cube with the burning witch's chair. And all settled in a rugged, rough coastal landscape.
And that the road to Vardö is also incredibly beautiful to ride, yes, that's not wrong. It always leads along the sea. Very easy to drive and fleet-footed. Roof open, CD and cruise control in and then cruise cruising. Great relaxation. You only have to watch out for the trucks, which do not know any mercy and just set off.
Yes, and then you have seen and experienced everything. A look at the daily kilometer shows me around 5800 km driven to Vardö! Actually crazy. But the craziest thing is, now you have to go back, bah ... ..
Next stop on the way back: Kalix.
