Ambient “space cruise” around generally Oslo area of Norway by boat, trains and car. That’s it. No narration, action, plot, theme or whatever, just dig the views and ride along.

Not high points for consistency or accuracy, but we didn’t need that as we dominated and won the trophy which still sits proudly at someone’s house.
