Place 16 – Day 18: Bergen – Rabarbrakake

Last night we watched a film with the family. The film was called ‘Bølgen’ (The Wave). This was about a mountain that collapses into the fjord. It was a pretty good film and was in Norwegian, so that helped us with our Norwegian skills!

Curtis didn’t sleep too well last night as he had quite a bad headache and couldn’t breathe too well, so we will make sure tonight that we open the window whilst sleeping as it gets quite warm and stuffy.

We had a lovely breakfast again, Curtis had the same and Kim had cheese on toast but also had natural yogurt.

Curtis was feeling better after breakfast, so we headed off to do some more wood splitting!

The machine kept stopping again, but we changed the cable it was using and it seemed to improve so we got a good amount done and we can see our progress with the wall of wood we are building.

We did a little bit of weeding after Silje and Vetle (mother and son) came back from their time away and we met them for the first time. 

Vetle helped us with the weeding and probably did a better job than we would! 

We had a Norwegian dinner consisting of;

  • Salted Lamb
  • Potatoes
  • Swede
  • Broccoli
  • Sausages
  • Lamb Sausages
  • Gravy 

The dinner was absolutely lovely!

For dessert, we had homemade ‘rabarbrakake’ (Rhubarb cake [crumble]) which was divine and we had that with vanilla ice cream. 

After dinner, we relaxed for a bit and then played some Monopoly Deal with the children here, which was a lot of fun!

Ha det!
