... had plaice and I had veal. The two thick veal steaks were tender and delicious but a huge serve. We accompanied this with a smooth French Pouilly-Fumee which went down very well. A pleasant evening.
On Thursday we returned to Bryggen to check out some of the museums. We first went into the Hanseatic League Museum. This was the original headquarters and administration building which has been kept as it was in the 1600s. The small rooms contained offices and ...

So we had a much emptier train for the last two hours of the journey! And the scenery! Oh my god it was amazing!
