... Voss where we stayed in a cabin.
When we entered our cabin there's not one cup, plate, knife, fork. Nothing. Why don't they tell you when you book in? There's a good market here for some smart people to turn this whole industry on it's head.
Tomorrow it's maybe back to Sweden.
... Tent pitched we ambled along the lakeside, up around a church and to a cafe (of sorts) by the water where we watched tourists kyack and firefighters do some training. At 9 quid a pint we left after one and returned to the campsite to BBQ and watch the sun go down whilst chatting to a Norwegian man who had taken off for a few days on his motorbike. It wasn't long before the chill crept in and we were forced to layer up and bunker down for the ...
... over 4,000 cakes and running her end of the family business. We walked with the brother-in-law around the farm looking at the cherry, apple and pear trees discussing about their cultivation and care. We then returned to the bus to go a short distance to see the salmon farm. We walked out quite a distance to the pens on a floating walkway. We could only go 5 at a time over the gang plank. When we were out on the first platform, we had to dip our shoes in a chemical box to ...
Up early for the 8:11 train from Oslo to Myrdal....the train climbs as the trip goes on...at 1200 metres above sea level (Finse), there is snow on the ground, we stop at a ski station..skiers get on and off....very desolate terrain...slowly we redescend to Myrdal (822 m above sea level). I then took the Flam railway down to Flam....beautiful views but unfortunately, the waterfalls were all very ...
... don’t do this place justice; you have to see this with 20/20 vision.
Anyway, I went to the small grocery store there and got some food to take back to the hostel. This hostel was easily the nicest, newest, and most well kept place I had stayed so far. I took my picnic out on the deck and had the most scenic meal of my life before going to sleep in awe of the place in the world I was in. But the real show is supposed to start ...

We were originally meant to stay at Fleischers but at the last minute they closed for 2 weeks and transferred our booking to here. The public areas are all really nice and the staff equally so. However the room was pretty ordinary but nonetheless clean with comfy beds which are our two main criteria.
We had lovely lake views from our room with a tiny little balcony opening off it.
The big surprise for us was our dinner on both nights - we were doing the Norway in a Nutshell tour and dinner was included. Many years of travel mean that we don't have particularly high expectations of included dinners - good basic food usually, sometimes quite bland. Not so at the Park - poached salmon with caramelised onions, tender beef fillet with roast vegies and creme brulee with fresh berries on the first night. And the second night was equally awesome - baked cod on garlic mash, melt in your mouth veal fillet with vegies, pannacotta with raspberry sorbet. Two absolutely outstanding meals. As is normal in Norway watch out for the wine costs - even house wine was about $15 a glass.
