    This place is less than one hour drive from Oslo. Its going busses and trains from the nearest city, Drammen. The nature around here is beautiful. Its quiet and the air is very clean. There are lakes and forest water to swim in, but I do also have a swimming pool in the garden. You can borrow my bicycle.
