When I last left you we began our day in lovely Aurlandsvagen and next made our way to Undredal. We weren’t sure about making a detour to this small town as we had heard mix things. I guess if you are doing a river cruise you will see a nice view of the town. However, since we didn’t do a cruise we thought we may as well visit Undredal since it was only 20 mins from Otternes Bygdetun in Aurland.
Undredal is a tiny village within the municipality of Aurland and is situated on the Aurlandsfjorden. It previously was only able to be accessed by boat, but today it can be reached by the highway network. It has very small population of about 100 people and 500 goats. Why so many goats? Well Undredal is famous for it’s a brown goats cheese and goat sausage. It is still made in the traditional way and important for the towns economy.
We arrived to Undredal still quite early in the morning, so nothing was open except for a small store. Some points of interest that were closed were the tourist centre, the Undredal stavkyrkje (smallest Stave church in Northern Europe) and Undredal Tredreieri (Wood turners).
Unfortunately for us there wasn’t much to do, except enjoy the beautiful view of the fjord. It was still worth stopping just for that. I recommend stopping by this town later in the day if I want to visit some of the points of interest or get a bite to eat. From what we saw there are no coffee or pastry shops, so I’m not sure where people have breakfast, who are staying in the accommodations. The only cafe/restaurant we found was Eldhuset, it opens daily, but not until 11am.
You can visit the local farms producing the goats cheese, but it was the wrong time of year for our visit. You can actually pre-organise with the farmers to visit them and at the very least spend time with their goats. I discovered this the evening before so it was a bit late book in and we still had quite a big day ahead of us.

Hi guys, hope you’re having a great weekend. How is everyone going with their New Years resolutions?
At the beginning of this year, I announced my New Years Plans and Goals. I had three major plans for this year:
- travel to Singapore
- getting my driving licence
- go back to university.
Well so far, so good. I have already gone and returned from my trip to Singapore. I am currently in the middle of organising my photos and writing my travel series for this trip. My most recent posts were my Singapore buys and experiences in Little India. The next two posts will be about China Town and the Singapore Zoo, so stay tuned.
If your interested in some of my other travel stories I have updated my Travel Adventures page. I have made some colourful tabs so you can click on them to find the posts that are associated with each country.
I have also added a Travel Series page with all my trips chronically ordered. From here you can select by the trip, to see all posts in that series.

As we say goodbye to 2017, I thought I would take a look back at the past year to see how far Live Eat Colour has come. I launched this blog on December 16th, 2016. So this year has really been where most of my content has been published. I have gained 542 followers and been visited by people from 119 countries. This blog did take a little while to take off, so I am very happy to end up with that many followers in the first year. I am also grateful for the many WordPress friends I have made along the way. Their comments and support have really kept me going.
My blog reflects all of my life passions, which is why I have written a variety of content about life, food and adult colouring. Why not focus on one niche? Well, I think I would get bored with one topic. It also means that I can write about my other interests when I can’t give my all to a particular passion (e.i cooking). So this is why I have divided my blog into three areas.
