We flew from Reykjavik to Bergen, and had one afternoon in town near the Bryggen- the UNESCO world site (which is one of the oldest port cities in Northern Europe).
I loved all the colorful buildings that popped off the green hillsides.
We ate at a cute little restaurant Pingevin, and here’s Albert’s meatballs, mushy peas, and potatoes.
That night we explored the hills of Bergen.
We took the funicular Floibanen up the hill and didn’t realize we were on the last ride, so we ended walking back down the hill.
Atop the hill was this quirky park filled with gnome statues.
Along the road during our walk down we came across this little hedgehog.
The next day we took a cruise through the fjords to Flam.
We stayed at this family-run hostel nestled below the hills.
With not much in town to do in the evenings we spent our night in town at the Aegir Brewery with some really good food, and lots of very expensive beer (beer is expensive and highly taxed in Norway).
The next day we boarded the Flamsbana train to Oslo.
On the way the train stopped at this waterfall and we were treated with a kinda cheesy, but beautiful singing performance by the woman in the red dress.
We had another train transfer in Myrdal.
This train ride took us through some truly gorgeous snowy scenery on our way southeast to Oslo.
After arriving we had one day to explore Oslo, and the Viking Museum was a must-see!
These are real Viking ships that were found buried, and this one was in incredibly perfect condition.
These items were found buried along with the ships.
These leather shoes, incredibly enough, are minimally 600 years old.
Oslo is filled with so many beautiful sculptures.
We found this awesome and elegant bar.
