... food. One thing I'll say about Norweigans is they know how to cook good food! Once we were all rolling around on the floor because our stomachs were so huge, Jess and I figured out where we were going to camp today. Lars suggested the areas around Flam, and sure enough on Google Maps we could see a few good spots for camping. Jess found a 3 hour kayak tour in the Fjords that looks fantastic - though we might get rained on - and while it's not cheap ($90AUD), ...
Arrived about 7am. Very noisey winches ropes. Woke us up so got up to look at the beautiful view. A tiny wee end on the fjord town of 500 soon to be overrun with tourists. Our ship plus another then bus loads of tours from Bergen. All to take the famous Flam train ride up the mountain. Only lasting an hour return it apparently takes in stunning high scenery.

Tomorrow for a change it's a couple of train trips and a late arrival in Oslo.
... There are many tunnels and one does a 180 degree turn inside the mountain.
We stopped at Kjosfossen Waterfall. We all alighted and were entertained by, not only the spectacular natural waterfall, but haunting music and dancers who seemed to disappear and reappear in the middle of the falls themselves. A nice piece of theatre. We continued on with the views of the track itself as well as the valley below becoming more and more ...
