Tiny cramped room, but I suppose it's still decent value for an expensive town like Bergen. Good location relatively close to both the centre and the train station.

A vicar came past on a push bike but he just went around them. And then I remembered the guys from work had bought me ...
... party with some friends, and that is our next stop.
The beginning of the party is kinda weird, the only person I know is Glen, but the boys are so kind, they all start chatting in English so we can understand everything. Perfect gentlemen.
Another friend of Glen's arrives and makes fun of our tourist boots hehehe. He is funny and witty. I loved him immediately. Someone makes ...
... skiing events. We continued along to Stavanger and checked into the hotel. We spent Sunday resting in the hotel, then Monday we ventured out to explore the city centre including the picturesque harbour and old city with its historical white timbered houses. We boarded the ferry at 4:45pm, and decided to bypass the first stop of Kopervik and continued onto Haugesand, which gave us another 18km up our sleeve. As it was a fine clear evening, we cycled another ...
