Bergen is an almost too picturesque port on the western side of Norway. It's colorful historic buildings, boat filled harbors and bustling cafes and shops provide plenty to see and do. This quickly became one of my new favorite places to be. I spent days walking the cobbled streets, peaking through historic alleyways, poking into crafts shops seeing artisans at work, and eating at various bakeries and restaurants. Like any tourist destination, keep an eye out for where the locals and immigrants eat, and you're sure to find an affordable meal. Not bad, either. I must say I never got a taste for pickled herring or smoked fish in the morning, but I was able to find plenty of fruit and veggies to nourish my body after a long day of walking.
Much of what Norway has to offer is simply too rich to put into words, as its natural wonders are all around, from the air I breathed in to the mountains I looked upon, and the peace and quiet my ears were so pleased to hear. Take a look at my pictures and see for yourself the serenity of this magical land.......
