... was from Toronto, Canada, and they're on Nautica. Had a good chat with them. They had been here a few times before and they had sailed quite a lot on Oceania. We commented about how lovely Bergen was and how uninteresting Oslos was :-) The gentleman was a geologist, his wife appeared to be of Japanese origin. Lovely couple.

... in their own right with tiny shops and cafes. We took the tram to the high view point above the city and were rewarded with huge views. Then walked down and down through the forested walkway zigzagging until we reached the narrow cobbled lanes with old homes and pretty gardens. Walked back via amazing fish market and the old castle grounds and sat for a while to listen to the Naval Wind Orchestra. Excellent. A good ...

... train back to Honefoss. We walked to the train station then hopped abroad. It was a very long train ride despite only being 5 hours. I was not able to sleep. I got back to Honefoss and cleaned up. I made some dinner and tried to catch up on the CWS with Texas Tech. I shared some of my Belgian chocolate with my Slovakian roommate Vicki, and my other Finnish friend Anu. We talked for about an hour until we got tired then decided it was time for bed. ...

... Century for grand occasions but over the centuries it was used for many things, including storage. In 1944 during the war a Dutch ship that had been requisitioned by the Germans anchored in port, against all regulations, and, for some reason its cargo took fire.

... By this time, most of the museums were closed (they do this really early for some reason), so we just walked around central Bergen for a while. It really is a charming place with clean parks, fountains, and statues everywhere. Two cautionary notes: (1) if the incessant squaking of seagulls bothers you then stay away; (2) if you are to ever be memorialized by statue here, your head will be shat upon.

    We liked it here very much as it is good value for expensive Bergen. There is a kitchen to make meals and the room we had was a great size. The hosts live separately upstairs so it is no problem to come and go as you please. The location is also very convenient to town
