My family and I went on a beautiful cruise to Norway in May 2019 and we are due to return later on this year (that is if Covid doesn’t get involved!). I cannot wait because I love the place and the people!
I didn’t keep a journal like I did for our holiday in Italy but I still have the beautiful pictures and experiences to share with you!
We travelled from Newcastle and after travelling for roughly 36 hours and 548 miles, we made it into Norwegian territory. We first visited Bergen.
I found this city so interesting. All these colourful buildings, the little cobbled and wooden flooring gave it a little-village vibe, and yet it being a major city. There were modern building mixed in with the old and that mix worked well here.
Not many actually like fish but you can’t help but be fascinated by the fish market right in the heart of the city. According the to VisitBergen website: “The picturesque Fish Market in Bergen is one of Norway’s most visited outdoors markets.” (The Fish Market in Bergen). No wonder it is the most visited! It has been providing sustainable food to locals since the 1200’s and is a great place to visit whether you are a curious tourist or a local searching for your evening meal.
Not exactly one of the main attractions but when we were having a wander around we passed a flower shop with exquisite flowers!
We went on an excursion that took us to: ØVRE-EIDE FARM. Their website isn’t in English, but if you scroll all the way to the bottom you have the option to translate it. You will find it showcases some beautiful photos of the scenic surroundings of the farm. They also have some very friendly sheep…
That’s it for this time, but if you would like to see more of our Scandinavian trip, give me a follow!
