Rusasetvatnet + Døsvik Havn Norway

In the Philippines, every Holy week we only have four days vacation but here in Norway, the holiday starts on Holy Thursday until Monday so they have 5 days off from work. So my mom has one more day before she goes back to work.


April is the start of Spring season but for us, it feels like winter sa lamig. Hehehe! My mom took advantage the good weather so she went out to clean the garden with my son. I was watching them from the kitchen window and it looks like my son was enjoying picking the dry leaves and then he started cutting the grasses. After several minutes, I saw him in the swing. Then after few minutes, he went inside and he said to me, “hirap maggarden”.


My mom shared to me what my son said at the garden. While my son was busy cutting grasses. He told my mom, “You know, you should buy lawn mower so it is easy to cut grass”. lol He was having a hard time cutting grasses using the scissors so nagsuggest na bumili na lang ng lawn mower. My mom just laughed and she said, she has lawn mower at the garage.


Rusasetvatnet 

After lunch, off we went to Rusasetvatnet. It is one of the recreational areas here in Ørland Norway. The place is good for walking, running, cycling and even bird watching. It has Ørland freshwater at the foot of Rusasetfjellet where you can see wildlife and fish.


They are developing the area to connect Brekstad, Rusaset and Austrått. Once restoration is finished, you can go fishing in Dala River, Balsnes River and Stamford River. My mom mentioned to me that we can walk up to Austrått so it means that there is already footpath that was developed. But since we already visited Austrătt before, we did no go there anymore.

One thing I noticed here in Ørland Norway, it is not tourist friendly. What I mean is there is no English translation in every place that we’ve been to. I saw flyers and brochures at the seaport but there is no English version of it. For someone like me who don’t know the language, it is hard to get the information that I need. Parang mas mahirap pa dito kaysa sa Japan.


They have so many sign posts around the recreational area but it is still useless for me since I can’t read and understand it. I can only appreciate the picture of it, kawawa naman nanay ko kung itranslate niya lahat ng sign post. Lol. But the good thing about here, there are so many recreational areas and it is free.

Døsvik Havn 

Anyway, after our walking at Rusasetvatnet, my mom drove us to Døsvik Havn or Døsvik Harbor. It is located beside the Bjugnfjorden, the place offers boathouses and holiday homes so if you are into sailing, boating or fishing, you can stay here. Don't ask about the rates because I AHve no idea :) It is nice to see the colorful holiday homes.

  3. I love the colors of the houses. Ang colorful lang talaga. And the place seems so clean. I bet the people there are so disciplined. Or perhaps they have a nice government who knows how to implement rules.

    1. Yes, the place is clean and organized. People are disciplined and if you violate rules or laws, you need to pay a lot of money. :)
