Our trip is winding down, but we have a few adventures left.
We are in Bergen this week, a very charming city on the water – filled with cobblestoned streets, hidden alleys, and wooden houses.
And lots of hills.
Also lots of boats. They even have their own version of “Ego Alley” where all the sailors tie up – just like Annapolis. So popular that they raft three or four across.
We’re back on our own with a one-bedroom apartment – up the hill about 5 minutes from the water. A bit of a workout to get there, but with splendid views across the city.
The apartment is run by two sisters – To Sostre – who also have a guesthouse with single rooms.
We have a great balcony on a quiet street right by a market, pizza place, and soup café. Very handy.
(You can see the local 7-11 down the street in the picture below!)
And the views when the midnight sun hits the hillside are spectacular.
After the mailboat schedule, we are looking forward to a low-key week and just seeing what unfolds. (Also our salmon that we prepared on the Hurtigruten – join us to see how it turns out!)
