In May last year, my sister Carol and I decided to take a cruise so that we could see her granddaughter Bethany perform as a lead singer in the musical entertainment on board a cruise ship. The shows were fabulous, and we luxuriated in the whole experience. For us, that was the whole trip. As a bonus, though, we also got to see Norway.
The visits we made to Bergen, Ulvik, Eidfjord, Stavanger, and Oslo were even more enjoyable than we had hoped for. It was cloudy most days, and a little cold, but the weather didn’t stop us exploring. It was a delightful trip, including an iron age farm, the Thor Heyerdahl Kon Tiki museum, the Viking Ship Museum, and the Vigeland Sculpture Park. I would love to go again. Here are some of the pictures I took.
It really was, Barb. I recommend it!
The sites look lovely! The city streets are so tidy; how nice!
Now that you mention it, yes! The streets were very clean and tidy.
Lovely pics. I enjoyed looking at them.
What a gorgeous montage – and I too noticed how clean the place is!
You photographs are smashing, by the way.
I have a cousin who lives in Oslo. Would love to visit one day.
Thank you, Ark! You really should visit your cousin. It is a lovely place.
Your photos are gorgeous — and I love the many facets you’ve shown us, too, from the sweeping landscapes to details of the Viking ships. Wonderful, wonderful post.
Thank you so much, Heide, and thank you for visiting and following this blog. There is so much to see in Norway that it really deserves a much longer visit than I gave it.
I can imagine, from reading your blog post! Norway looks like one of those countries in which even a lifetime wouldn’t be enough.
