We're doing 10 nights in Norway in late September; 6 of those will be "on the road" as we drive through Andalsnes, Solvorn, Bergen and then down through Valle and back to Oslo. We'd rather not spend too much money on expensive restaurant meals (though I'm sure we'll eat out here and there). Only two of those nights include breakfast in the price of the room and I'm not sure how often we'll run into grocery stores. We were thinking of getting a small disposable cooler (maybe even styrofoam?) when we leave Oslo and toting it along in the backseat of the car. We're thinking it would hold some cheeses, meats, etc. Roadside picnic foods that might need to be kept cool.
Is this a realistic thing to expect to be able to buy easily and cheaply in Oslo before we start our drive? Are bags of ice as common in roadside markets as they are in the US? I know there are collapsible soft-sided coolers we could bring but we'd rather keep it disposable since we have 10 nights in Scotland after Norway and will have little use for it there or at home, plus we're trying to pack as light as possible, of course.
Any thoughts would be welcome!
