We had our first sleep-in so far on this holiday (6.45am) before having breakfast, packing our bags and heading down to the train station. Unluckily it decided to rain again so I'm not sure we'll remember Oslo for its balmy weather! Since we only have baguettes left for lunch, I wanted to buy some peanut butter to make them less …

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 ...

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
