Last Sunday I was really lucky to be offered a lift to Mandal by a good friend. I have been keen on visiting Mandal for quite a long time, since I heard it had some of the most beautiful beaches in southern Norway and it is the southernmost settlement of the country.

Driving from Kristiansand to Mandal is like you were in a romance movie: the road follows the coastline, bends all the time and you have a beautiful vista onto the open sea and the hundreds of tiny rocky islands that look like they were thrown into the water millions of years ago by an infuriated giant.
We had to make a stop at one point, because I wanted to take a few pictures, here they are:
