I never thought about Norway as a place I wanted to visit. I am sure we all have lists of dream places to visit and Bergen, Norway just never made it on mine. But let me tell you I am so glad I was able to visit and now have so many gorgeous pictures to share.
I also realized that my maiden name originates from the area...I joked all weekend that I was hangin' with my peeps...getting back to my heritage...I thought I could get a discount too since it was so dang expensive. Bless America! $8 for a coke? $30 for a hamburger??
A few friends asked how Norway was and honestly it was so hard to find the accurate words or phrase to express it's beauty and landscape...So here are some photos..
We left early Friday morning and it was a quick 1.5 hour flight. I was prepared with all the essentials...Raincoat and Umbrella...it rains 260 days a year in Bergen...I'd be one depressed chica...
As we walked through the airport I was made aware once again that I cannot escape the presence of 'Merica...
