Touring in Bergen

Bryggen in Bergen

I decided to spend some of my vacation on going on a road-trip to Bergen. The second largest city in Norway, where I went to university. I stayed with good friends and seeing as I had a first timer with me there we we’re being tourists.

Old houses from the Hanseatic days

Bergen is quite known for their rain and we had a bit of it, but it didn’t turn out so bad for our first full day. We had a bit or rain, but nothing too heavy. Weather was way worse today!

We had a great time meeting up with friends and very much enjoyed walking around in Bergen, seeing my old house and uni.

We did the tour of the town, and especialy the famous and I should have gotten more photos, but they didn’t turn out so nice.

    I love the false fronts on those buildings being renovated. Much better than the tarps we tend to use.

    It has been 3 years since I walked in those same places. It is my father’s hometown and I was conceived there. While I am not really a city person it still feels like home to me.

    I love the photos. Are all the streets either brick or wood? That is fascinating.
