Norway in a Nutshell: Bergen in a Leaf

Leave a comment

Norway in a nutshell is a great way to see lots of a gorgeous country. It’s grueling though! We were on trains, boats and buses for 12 hours! Sadly, there is no beer on the boat until May 1st, so all future tourists make sure not to go to Norway in April.

This montage includes all legs of the Norway in a Nutshell trip plus our time spent in Bergen. We were joined by some great Norwegian friends for the last half of the trip. Conversation and laughter abound.

Norway is stunningly beautiful.

Maplethorpe, Munch, and Viking War Ships

Snow in Oslo and a quick hit means lots of über and two museums.

We will now preside over some Viking ruins!

And then it was over to a very strange juxtaposition indeed. Maplethorpe is just a wee bit better than Munch, but don’t tell the Norwegiens. Judge for yourself.
