I took a trip to Europe last month. The first stop was Norway, or as it’s said in Norwegian, “Norge”. Once there, we traveled to Lillehammer for TMI Skate’s IDF World Cup of Skateboarding.

The first couple of race days were for practice. Normally we only get one day of practice, and the second day is qualification, but because the timing system had malfunctioned, we were awarded with another day of practice. I took full advantage of that, and snagged a bunch of clips. Check it out!:

After racing was said and done, I managed to come out on top in the Women’s category.

Right after the race ended, we began our trek North to skate some legendary Norwegian roads. Since Norway is the land of the midnight sun, we got to enjoy its beauty while we drove throughout the night. We ended up at the small village of Stallhiem.

When we got to Stalhiem, the weather did not cooperate. It ended up raining the whole time we were there.
