Bergen to Oslo

... lots of snow and partially frozen lakes. Some of the farms reminded us of the buildings we had seen at the folk museums we have visited.

Today has been the day with the most spectacular scenery. It has been a long day, catching a train, bus, boat, train and train. Starting on the first train at 08:44 and getting off the last train at 22:45 with fortunately a very short walk to our comfortable Rica hotel in ...

"Excuse me, our room air conditioning does not seem to be working." I said politely. "No", said the equally polite girl at reception. " it is not. There is no air conditioning in the rooms". "But", I persisted, " it is right in front of me and it is set to 15.". I am sure at this stage she smiled. " That is for heating". Our room was uncomfortably hot and stuffy. She tried to help again. " you see, it is very hot in Bergen at the moment". And it ...

Bergen... The land of Odd

A travel blog entry by nicholas.napoli


... city with rickety old building that lean so much they look like they are going to fall. This area is UNESCO and worth a quick walk. From there we used the Bergen card to get a ride on the Fl°yen funicular. The funicular takes you up the mountain to Fl°yen for the best views in the city. There is also an extensive network of trails that would make for a great trail run. After about an hour of exploring Fl°yen and a quick photo shoot, it was time to ...

... American, and with nothing much else to do, there is conversation a plenty.
I have discovered how to play 'spider' on the tablet!
We had a spa before dinner, and were told by several passers-by that we were brave. It is on our deck so not far to go. We left our curtains open in the hopes of seeing the Northern Lights, but it was too cloudy
Apparently we crossed the 'Arctic Circle' about 8pm. During the evening we could see the coast of Iceland..

... when a German ammunition boat blew up right in front of them but have now been restored. Looked hard but I couldn't see any sign of Guildenstern!!

We explored further into Bryggen by going down one of the small lanes. Here we came across a white stone building from 1666. This is the oldest house in Bergen as most were burnt down in a devastating fire in 1702. There was a wooden statue of what looks like an emaciated fish nearby. We worked out later that this is dried cod ...

    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
