Mappy Monday: Mom's 1953 Europe Road Trip - A Little Tired of Driving in Norway

From Mom's Europe trip diary, in the "PLACES VISITED" section:
September 8, Tuesday – Road between Geilo and Lillehammer, Norway
Went through the same old stuff, just less spectacular and not as interesting.  We stopped to eat by a lake but it was so cold had to eat in the car.  Arrived in Lillehammer around 3:30, went shopping and bought 2 wooden egg cups and some enamel jewelry cuff links.

* From the PURCHASES section of the trip diary, it indicates Mom bought these items for a total of about 25.75 kronen.

According to the "HOTELS STOPPED AT" section of the trip diary, my mother and her friends stayed at the Victoria Hotel in Lillehammer this night.

Here are a couple of maps that show the terrain from Kristiansand (September 6) to Lillehammer, and the location of the Hardangerfjord and Sørfjorden areas where they drove yesterday:

This is the 32nd in a series of posts transcribing entries in my mother's 1953 Europe Trip journal.
