After a great night sleep in Vevang we take one more lap over the bridges before heading on to Kristiansund.
As we approach Kristiansund we travel through the
To our dismay we find the parking is free overnight but the hourly rate after 8am is NOK20. We had planned to spend the day here tomorrow but we may have a re-think.

Not a great night sleep in Trodheim. There is a music festival on in the centre of town, probably almost a kilometre away but the sound carried along the river. When I say music I use the term loosely, duff, duff is a more accurate term. That and the Italian camper next to us who came back from town at 11pm and decided to spend 10 minutes getting his camper level. After 5 years of motorhoming around Europe, I can safely say Italians are generally the rudest and least considerate bunch you will meet in a stellplatz.
We have two things to do today, find a laundromat to do some washing. Secondly buy a local sim-card. We have used Three UK sims during our travels the last couple of year and the service has been generally very good. But in Norway, the service is poor unless you are in a large town or city and there’s not many of those here. So after checking with some fello bloggers (M&M) we will try a local sim.
We get lucky and snag a spot directly outside the laundromat. The parking is even more expensive here (NOK25 ph) so we decide to take turns keeping an eye out for a parking officer and save our hard earned NOK a little longer. We quickly get a couple of washine machines going. There are a couple of odd looking coves hanging around the dryer. From their unusual behaviour we suspected they were Tasmanian. Pam, a Tasmanian native (Yes, Hobart ), started chatting in their local dialect. It seems they are a bunch of salmon salesman visiting Norway for a conference on aquaculture and possibly a beer festival, as they seemed a bit dusty. Anyway we had a good old chat whilst the machines did there job.
Whilst buying a new sim I find the battery in my iPhone is virtually flat, so no more photos of Trondheim. Anyway after wandering the waterfront for a while we head back to the Hymer and make our way out of town.
The Telia 4g sim works a treat and so far its very fast.
