... naively, that people in Norway were going to be so helpful, cheery, blonde hair, blue eyed, super enthusiastic about this young Canadian girl just trying to make it in this world .. nope. I live these experiences so you don't have to, you're welcome. Anyways, she just said "walk straight for about 1 km and it's right there", easy enough.
I made it down as a boat was pulling into the dock and thought I'd be on my way within the next hour. Nope. Fast forward ...

We English speakers are such an arrogant lot, and our hosts and those we need to ...
... the beauty of the town quickly showed itself despite the dark of night with softly lit buildings covered in snow, the roads iced over and the last remaining autumn leaves hanging from the trees... little did I know how much more amazing it would be once the sun had risen!
