NORWAY IN A NUTSHELL

We have been back in Norway for a year now, and it is time
to be tourists in our own country...


We traveled with the ferry to Bergen


and then with train to Voss
and stayed in this historic hotel, 
wonderful service and children friendly!

the journey continued by bus

through a mountainous valley

and down a spectacular hairpin road which twist and turns

then a fjord cruise between Gudvangen to Flåm

spectacular waterfalls

and beautiful villages along the way


we have a saying in Norway that goes somehow like this: 
there is no bad weather, just bad clothing....

then we arrived in Flåm and spent a night at a hotel

and next morning a train journey on the Flåm Railway

with impressive waterfalls

and magnificant mountain scenery, another train journey from Myrdal
back to Bergen


We spent a few days in Bergen


including a visit to the aquarium

then the ferry back home!

Ofcourse I had to knit on our trip, and it resulted in
these two hats
which I felted  in the washing machine

one is for our princess and it fits perfect,
good for the coming winter!

I hope you enjoyed our Norway trip,
thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment!

Have a wonderful summer!

For en fin rundtur dere har tatt. Vestlandet er vakkert, og om det har regna mye, så ble fossene utrolig flotte. Fine blider du har tatt. Ha en fortsatt god dag!

Flott rundtur de har hatt- Norge er vakkert...
me tok omtrent same turen for nokre år sidan, og kunne godt reist tilbake til det området.

Takk for turen, Hanne. Kjempeflott innlegg og gode bilder - føler nesten at jeg også har vært en liten tur på Vestlandet...
I år blir det ikke Houston på oss, men jeg og Mona drar til Birmingham 10. august.
Fortsatt god sommer!
