Story: The Cow Stalker

Every other Sunday I share a personal story from my travels. It might be silly, sad, or just something random I feel like sharing.

Stalking Highland Cows in Norway

Time: June 2016, 1 AM

Location: Hamarøy, Norway

I’m pretty sure highland cows are the coolest creatures to ever exist on this planet. After sloths. And sharks. And obviously dinosaurs (rest in peace). When I was driving home from our cabin last summer, I suddenly noticed a whole bunch of highland cows in the woods. I had recently spent 10 days in Scotland without seeing a single one, and now they were so close to my cabin? I almost died of excitement. Literally almost died.

I somehow managed to pull over, grab my camera and I ran down a hill towards them. In soaking wet, thigh-high grass, while wearing sandals. And it was AMAZING. There were so many of them, and they all gathered around me as close as they could like I was Britney at a 90s party.

So. There I was, in the woods all by myself. In the middle of the night, taking pictures while talking to fifteen highland cows for like an hour. That’s when it hit me: I am utterly insane and I should never tell this story to anyone.

Lets keep this our little secret, shall we?


Hi, I’m Tina! The chubby fingers behind this travel blog are attached to my body, so I guess that makes me a travel blogger? I enjoy exploring the corners of the world as often as I can, including my own ‘backyard’ in arctic Norway. And I hope you’ll join me on my adventures.
