Tove and Jørn Olav Løset homepage
We are a family with three kids, living in a little village in Sunnmøre, in the north-west of Norway. Endre was born i 1996 and his sister Anne came two years later. The youngest of the boys was born in oct. 2004 and named Håvard. The place we live in is called Dalsbygd, and is located in Dalsfjorden in the municipality of Volda. The towns closest to us are Volda (population 5000), Nordfjordeid (3000) and Ålesund (37000). We run a dairy farm of medium size (in norwegian terms), and Tove works full-time as a teacher. Our goals for these pages is to give you an idea of some of the things that we do in this "outback", surrounded by alpine peaks and deep fjords.
See more of this on our pages:
- Our area offers very good possibilities for fishing, deer hunting and mountaineering in all four seasons.
- In 1995 we went on a skiing expedition along the Jostedal glacier in Norway, which is the largest glacier on the European mainland. The 60 km long route goes from Stryn to Fjærland and lasted three and a half day, including two nights in tent on the glacier plateau itself. This "haute route" trip is regarded as one of the "classic" trips of skiing in Norway. The page from the trip is in norwegian, but the images still show some of the atmosphere on the glacier.
- In May 2003 we went on a week-long trip to Terracina (english version) in Italy. The pages about Rome and Pompei are still mostly in norwegian.
- In June 2003 Jørn went on a short glacier hike on the famous Briksdal glacier in Olden, Nordfjord, Norway.
- Our kids kids have their own page with some photos.
- Jørn's pages about viking ships are continously expanding, leading to some rather odd excursions now and then in order to get more pictures of these beautiful boats.
- Jørn has also made a separate site about the municipality of Volda, Norway. It has its own domain: www.volda.info. So far no english version of this site, but that will soon change - I think..
- We also have a guest book. Feel free to write something nice in it. :o)
Some of our closest relatives:
Tove's family: her sisters Ann and Ingebjørg standing next to Tove, and her parents Petra og Elias in front.
Jørn's family: Stig is Jørn's brother and Tor his father. Next to Stig is Liv (Tor's wife), Line and Tove. Line and Stig married a few years ago, and now lives in Sandnes. They also have two girls - Lotte and Mari.
