Erin Explores

Bergen, Norway (July 2014)

Bergen was my first stop in Norway. What a delightful little coastal town! A lot of people stay here or in Stavanger as a “home base” to begin their fjord adventures.

The old harbor-side neighborhood is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I’ve never seen anywhere quite like this. I tried to imagine the whole city like this, Vikings stomping up and down the stairs, the smells of wood and lutefisk and reindeer hide and a soft drizzle from the grey sky.

For dinner I had reindeer – yum!!!

This old house has been preserved as a museum. The small size of the bunks surprised me – I guess Scandinavians weren’t always so tall!

The famous runes – “my dear, kiss me”

Up to the overlook!

All of my pictures…

      For sure wander around the old harbor neighborhood, it’s free! And I always love cable cars or anything that gives me a good view, so I would recommend that.
