Thanks to some wonderful friends and neighbours who are making sure Sheila’s mum is ok. We managed to get to Bergen. The journey which we booked with Norwegian airways was a traumatic event as we only had 20 minutes between transfers in Stavanger. We should have had a least an hour. It was chaos and very stressful.
Our bus trip to the hotel cost £25 for 2 adults. We should have got the rail it would have been £7.80. Hindsight is indeed wonderful.
The weather has been absolutely roasting. The hottest May on record. We are not complaining unlike the Norwegians who cannot have barbecues due to fire risk.
We have probably walked about 20km so far and we are finding Bergen to be a very vibrant, friendly and clean place even if it is so expensive in comparison to Manchester.
Tomorrow we plan on doing some short walking trails.
