Norway


Last week was our last travel break. For the first half I stayed in Copenhagen and relaxed, and for the second half, I went to Bergen, Norway with Tim. Bergen was a really nice city, and despite the rain and really cold weather, we had a great time. Unfortunately we did not make it to any of the well-known fjords, but we did take a funicular, or cliff railway, up the mountain and went hiking. Yes, I just had to look up the word funicular. Fun fact for the day! The railway was called Fløibanen and it went up the mountain of Fløyen. In terms of the weather, it was one of our better days in Norway, but still not exactly warm. 

On our last day, we decided to go for a walk in part of Bergen we hadn't ventured to yet. We stumbled upon the aquarium, which we had been considering visiting but hadn't gotten around to. We spent most of the day there and it was really fun. I wasn't a huge fan of the snakes though...

A sign on one of the hiking paths.
We got some weird looks from people passing us when we were discussing dinosaurs.
Apparently they hadn't seen the sign.



Alligator at the aquarium

Not a huge fan of this guy.
Didn't help that Tim kept saying that it was trying to escape so it could eat me.

Food time!


We saw a show with this seal and his friend. They're really cute.
