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 ...

... an amazing fjord, with a huge cliff face on the other side, surrounded by ferns, moss, trickling waterfalls, and grass as green as you've ever seen. Inside his house was equally inspiring, with elaborate wood carvings over the doorways, amazingly decorated rooms filled with his art and also complete with a lot of his original belongings and furniture. We were glad we made the effort to get there as it was great. After we left there it was back to the buses and trains, ...

Rationale and Strategy

A travel blog entry by dyer0930

... for our long weekend, our recent history of travelling with two under two has taught us that it’s much easier to stay at a single base and do day-trips. Scandinavia, and especially Norway, is a really expensive part of the world – quite possibly the MOST expensive country you can visit. With lodging in the $300-$400 / night range, we were very keen to use hotel points for this trip. We considered the Radisson Blu ...

    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.
