Pilgrimage to Pulpit Rock

... at Stavanger, which meant another ferry across another fjord before arriving at our chosen camp site. We set up out tent then proceeded to search for a grocery store using our trusty Navigator device to help us find one. After about four attempts at various locations around the city and finding all shops shut, we figured something was wrong and guessed at a public holiday. Initially we thought Queen’s birthday but it was the wrong queen! Then ...

... buildings without being distracted or swept away. Oslo has a very cool feel. It's very retro, indie and hipster. Trendy to say the least.

... a lunchtime 'all you can eat' pizza and salad buffet for 11 quid a head. By Norwegian standards this was certainly 'deal of the day'. The plates were small but you really could keep going back for more, and more, and more. You even got a free refill on the coffee. And free wifi. We will be having a small tea tonight. After lunch we decided that we would skip the Canning Museum included in our ticket. I couldn't even be bothered with the Oil Industry Museum. So we ...
