"Hi Sofie, I just had to take a minute to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip.  It was an amazing adventure, everything and more that I dared hope for and every bit as hard that I worried about.  We can't stop talking about it.  There are so many special places and people from each day.  I have a hard time expressing my feelings about it.  I guess that may be the pilgrimage part, or the beauty of your people and countryside.  I just loved it all.  Thank you for this trip!"

"Jeg har hatt en helt fantastisk slitetur på Olavsleden fra Stiklestad til Trondheim. Noen steder var det dårlig merking og på noen etapper mangel på noe å sette seg på for å spise nisten. Jeg kom fram til Trondheim med en god mestringsfølelse, og ville ikke hvert turen foruten."

“I had a fantastick hike on St Olavs trail from Stiklestad to Trondheim. On some parts there were a lack of signs and a I missed a place to sit down on to eat my lunch pack on a couple of stages. I arrived to Trondheim with a sense of accomplishment and had not wanted the trip undone.”
