Today I pretty much just went on a train. But WHAT A TRAIN. I actually cried at one point because I loved the train so much, and also I was all emotional about my book. It's been a day of introverted bliss. This morning I had my first traditional Norwegian breakfast, which consists of ryvita, some fish eggs in a tube, pickled fish, a boiled egg and …
Well, the riding has been good. I've had a little difficulty charging as my cable's shot and seem to have lost an entry, so here I am many days later and a little bit tired. After Oyer, we went to Lillehammer, saw the art gallery as well as Maihaugen, a large outdoor museum showcasing all sorts of historic buildings, and Børkbæk, home of nobel …
... Bergen so we decided to go for a ride on the tram hoping that we would get some idea of our surroundings and be able to follow the transport timetable. We never did find the Viking Museum but we did find an International food market with food from all over the world so we toured that instead.
Then it was back to the hotel for dinner and to pack once again for tomorrow we had an early start as we were catching a ferry to ...
... a botanical garden out the back of a museum, with ponds and Lilly's and sat reading my book in the sun. I fell asleep for a very short while and dozed for a bit before taking some photos of the gardens. I went back down to the station, got my stuff and headed to meet Nina. We got to her place which she shares with another girl Ina. It's a tiny appartment, you walk maybe 5 paces and you've covered the entire place. They share a bed as there's only one ...

It is hard to imagine a beter location for a hostel than right in the heart of Bergen's tourist district. Almost as amazing is the reasonable prices they charge. I came in without warning from the hinterlands so I was , of course unable to get a private room. The summer dorm is actually an auditorium full of bunk beds, a little daunting at first, but it's pretty quiet and folks were generally respectful. Being mostly for youth, the lights were on late at night and off until late in the morning, which wasn't exactly to my taste. Security in the building was first rate for a hostel, with access cards so that we could come and go and use the facilities. Breakfast was pretty good, too. A proper Norwegian buffet with a wide range of good foods available for NOK 65, a real deal in the tourist zone of a Norwegian city. I'd say it's as good as you could ever expect from a youth hostel in a big city. I'd love to return with a little lead time and try their private rooms.
