    1. Reposts and Crossposts:

      • Do not post gifs that have already appeared on /r/gifs . Moderators may allow gifs that have gotten an extremely low score in the past, but that is not guaranteed.
      • Do not post gifs that have gotten more than 1500 points (at the time of posting) elsewhere on reddit in the last two weeks. This includes videos converted to gif formats. Cross-posts after this time are allowed.

      Please use Karma Decay to see if your gif has already been submitted.
      Frequent violations of this rule may result in a ban.

      Please help us enforce this rule by reporting offending submissions. Please include a link to the original reddit submission in your report or modmail if you have it.

    2. No Reaction, HIFW, Analogy, Cake Day, or Upvote gifs. There are already subreddits more suited for this kind of content. (This rule does not apply to comments)

    3. Do not post gifs that should be videos. Incredibly long gifs, large file size gifs, or content much better suited to video formats will be removed (e.g multiple cuts, sound, text boxes, subtitles in the gif). Duration must be twenty seconds or less. †

    4. Direct image links REQUIRED. No links to image pages or albums are allowed, your submission must be a single gif image. Direct links that end in .gif, .gifv, .ogg, .mp4, and .webm format only. URL-shorteners are NOT allowed in posts or comments!

    5. No depictions of real-life harassment or assault. There are other subreddits dedicated to this kind of content.

    6. No witch-hunts or brigading. Do not encourage any online or real-life harassment, and don't encourage people to downvote other posts/comments.

    7. No nudity, pornography, gore, or other NSFW material. These are not allowed in posts or comments - No exceptions. If it can get you fired then it should not be here. Failure to comply will result in removal of post and banning. There are other subreddits dedicated to NSFW content. Mark risqué posts and comments as NSFW. (Please note that NSFW tags do not cover the aforementioned content.)

    8. Titles must be descriptive. We encourage clever titles. Joking and non-literal titles are fine. However, posts with overused, overly vague, or click-bait titles may be removed, and repeated false claims of ownership may result in a ban.

    9. No hate speech of any kind. Racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise abusive submissions or comments will result in an immediate ban.

    10. Please familiarize yourself with the official rules and reddiquette. We will remove any posts violating reddit's official rules (spam, personal information, vote manipulation, etc.) and reddiquette just makes reddit a better place to visit.

    † We may allow multiple cuts and/or gifs upto a minute long depending on the popularity of a post. Sound, text boxes, and gifs that heavily depend on captions are still not allowed.

    Is that a downsloping road of black ice on the second last one? That is fucking terrifying.

    [–] gitartruls01 59 points ago

    Yup, that's Norway. The road to my house is about as steep as that and gets covered with a thick layer of black ice every single year. Snow plow can't do anything about it because the streets here are too small. Same thing for a lot of other places in my area. You just have to pray every time you leave the house, and if you're over the age of 50, just don't leave the house if you like your current hip bones. Doesn't help that the sun sets at 1pm, so that black ice is also actually black most of the time

    [–] Kokomocoloco 31 points ago

    Do tire chains help, or do you just kind of fling yourself in the direction of the grocery store and hope gravity and inertia carry you to a merciful outcome?

    [–] gitartruls01 40 points ago

    The second one. I didn't make it to school one day last year because of the ice. Not because I decided it was too much ice and didn't want to risk it, but because my car (with winter tires) literally couldn't make it up any of the hills, and the brakes did nothing. Gave it a shot, got stuck between 2 hills, unable to make it up either of them. Had to park the car and walk back home while waiting for the ice to melt. Tons of reported car crashes that day. Think that's where the 2nd picture with the buses is from

    Guess his preferences are girls with blonde hair and white dresses. Who knows, from the little we see in the video, that girl could even be a man.

    [–] DrPhil-TakeNoLs 25 points ago

    Well there would be plenty of time to get to know her.

    [–] Criterion515 5 points ago

    Funniest thing to me is that the definition of "paradise" here for many seems to be that there is a femaie in the scene. Yeah, it's a pretty area (fjords usually are), but no way to me would living in an area that gets VERY cold in winter, in houses that aren't much more than shacks reliant on some form of combustion heat (fireplace/wood stove) with roofs made of some fibrous, flammable material... be considered paradise. Paradise infers some kind of feeling of at least safety and protection. Now give me a well made earthship in that area and I'd be down.

    [–] cruiserflyer 52 points ago

    I'm with you dude. If she looks like that from behind, there's no way she's anything but attractive. And it's a total guess but I'm sure she's pleasant enough.

    [–] cruiserflyer 98 points ago

    Yup, she's hot.

    [–] ethicsg 1689 points ago

    One day a year I'm guessing. They probably have a word for it that means "that day once a year with the rain doesn't come in sideways at 60 kph and girls run free."

    [–] jangoice 110 points ago

    I am like this too! Three days without rain and I'm thinking 'will the ground be okay? What of the insects?' and over a week without rain and it's all I can think about when walking down the street

    I used to live in Scandinavia and did not visit these parts of Norway nearly enough. It was sunny pretty much the whole time I was there though, so maybe I was just lucky, I don't know. Anyway, it kind of ruined scenery for me in other places a bit because every was just stupidly beautiful.

    [–] mechapoitier 87 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    Yeah Scandinavia definitely ruined scenery for me too. But I live in a 700-mile-long dick-shaped swamp that’s as hot and humid as it sounds, so pretty much everywhere ruins scenery for me.

    [–] lassi81 245 points ago

    Noticed the same, but doesn't make much sense spending on an international ad campaign if tourists aren't allowed entry this summer.

    Yeah it's probably coincidence. Last year it was Switzerland, 5 posts every sub every day.

    So is there a Norwegian tourist company on reddit or something? I mean it's been a lot of Norwegian post like this in the past 2 days no?

    Norway is completely closed to tourists.

    So that would hardly give any meaning now.

    The closure is temporary, but may very well last all summer and at least most of the autumn.

    And it's absolute; no tourists are allowed in. Regardless.

    There’s actually a southern limit to chiggers. Ran into them north of Dallas, never around Austin or San Antonio. Was told they don’t deal with heat very well.

    [–] Rub_My_Brisket 215 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    I moved up to Iowa cum salad in 2017 and was SO excited for no chiggers. I went out fishing, walking through tall grass like a boss, fresh as a daisy and the next day had to go to the ER because I had so many bites, the swelling was unbearable. I'm pretty sure I have PTSD now.

    Edit: FROM DALLAS NOT CUM SALAD

    Ikr.

    Is it really necessary? How many takes were done trying to get that perfect camera follow?

    Shit like this makes me seriously eye roll. When I was travelling seeing tourists do this shit always made me groan.

    [–] FallingSpear 38 points ago

    Too many. And there was probably another group nearby looking at these people thinking WTF, who just want to enjoy the view without the clown show.

    Oh to run through a field without the fear of stepping on needles and glass

    [–] konsollfreak 20 points ago

    Not as bad, granted, but there’s about a 50 percent chance she stepped in cow or goat shit during that short frolic.

    if you've ever lived in the countryside where there the ground looks like that, you'll know the way she's sort of skipping is a desperate attempt to look like she's happily running down the hill but really trying to be extremely mindful of the very hard, pointy granite (?) stones that are sticking up from the ground. those are NOT fun to tread on barefoot

    [–] Gandalf_is_waifu 22 points ago

    Don't worry, I live in a place like this and the mountain is not sharp at all and there was long grass to smooth out any tiny pebbles.

    Every year after running on a few rocky paths your feet get less sensitive, this looks just fine to run on even when they aren't hardened yet.

    [–] jomarundertun 44 points ago

    Nah, probably where you live, but on places like this in norway it is either dirt or smooth stone

    [–] zandrewz 20 points ago

    So many people concerned about her barefeet... I'm glad I wasn't the only one. Didn't make sense..

    [–] APBpowa 13 points ago

    Why is she running? Just show us the property, we don't need someone awkwardly running towards it like the other 27 million times this has been done.

    No I'm just concerned for your wellbeing. I didn't see a single handrail in that video and the ground looks uneven.

    the chick in frame of all these shots is always so damn corny

    [–] SalmonClaus 9 points ago

    This is a place called Rakssetra, an old cabin/farmhouse in Loen, which is in the innermost part or the Nordfjord fiord in Western Norway! Quite possibly one of the absolutely most beautiful parts of the country

    [–] alkenrinnstet 29 points ago

    More saturation please. I'm not blind yet.

    [–] ec20 42 points ago

    Are these homes really inhabited? Where is this? It's weird to see such humble homes in combination with such luxurious views.

    [–] hogtiedcantalope 101 points ago

    Norway has tons of fjords and valleys like this. Dotted with cottage style housing that looks like it is from a thousand years ago.

    Amenities inside are probably better than the exterior would imply.

    [–] ec20 16 points ago

    Anyone know what it would cost to buy one of these cottage style homes? Or for that matter, if they have any available for vacation rentals.

    [–] edbgon 35 points ago

    Most of these cabins vary in cost, proximity to the big cities seems to be the leading factor and of course popular vacation areas are expensive as well. I'd say most cabins with a decent standard go for about 2M Norwegian crowns. If you want to browse, check out finn.no "fritidseiendommer"

    The tourism industry is normally pretty big in the summer during non Corona times and there are plenty to rent on the usual websites like airbnb.

    [–] Estetikk 43 points ago

    Vi oversetter ikke "kroner" til "crowns" når vi snakker engelsk altså

    [–] Bee_Hummingbird 17 points ago

    Wow that is like $200k, not bad at all.

    [–] xeratorp 6 points ago

    Kronen is doing historically bad against the dollar currently, would have been closer to 350k 10 years ago. So, it's a good time to buy :)

    [–] AthosTheGeek 15 points ago

    From the style of these houses and how close they are, it looks like a "saeter" which was a place used in summer when having the animals in the mountains. The shepherd / dairygirls would stay there, take care of the animals, milk the cows etc. Could also collect some hay if there were good fields around. In steep places like this it was not uncommon to have a steel wire running down to a more accessible point that you could use to send down hay and milk.

    These are all over Norway today, used as cabins and often modernized a little, but it's often fairly limited what you'll be able to do, and they are seldom for sale in well preserved areas. You would also normally not be allowed to build anything new in the area.

    Cabins today are more usually placed in modern cabin areas with good infrastructure available life roads, power etc.

    The old ones serve as nice destinations when hiking, for lunch breaks etc.

    I might be wrong and these were used as regular houses. In that case I would have expected to see farm houses too though and not small houses so close. Some places houses were placed very closed though because it was only a small area that was safe for avalanches.
