We needed to be out of the apartment by 11:00 today, so we made sure we were up for about 09:00 to get everything done!
We then had to be outside for 12 hours, so Kim made sure that she made some sandwiches to keep us going.
We walked around, had a few coffees and some cinnamon buns and hung out with Espen.
Tom & Maggie needed to leave to the airport at 15:00, so we walked them to the tram terminal and, with both Kim & their tears, they left to the airport and we went back into Bergen.
We hung out with Espen for a couple of hours, just wandering around and window shopping before Espen had to go home to prepare for work tomorrow.
This left just us two, alone again! Though this is odd and kind of sad, it is also nice to be able to spend time together.
We continued to walk around aimlessly and then decided we would attempt one last hike before leaving Bergen…This failed.
We didn’t even get halfway up before we bailed on the idea…We just couldn’t be bothered! We sat around on benches on the mountain for a bit, people watching, before we headed to Burger King for a cheap ice cream and WiFi!
We are currently still sat in Burger King and we have a few hours to kill. We will need to head to the train station at about 22:15 to grab our bags from the lockers and ensure we are in the correct place to catch our night train, which takes us to one place, which we then have to take another bus to the place we are staying! All the travel!
Today, we spent the morning sat up on the terrace, on top of the roof, with a coffee and met some of the neighbours from the same building. The temperatures were 18°C at 08:00 when Curtis woke up with a nose bleed, which was a hoot!
We spent a lot of time chilling in the apartment this mprning just relaxing and getting Tom and Maggie some energy back!
We headed into to and went to the Dromedar Kaffe for a coffee and then we met with Espen at the ‘blue stone’.
We took a walk into the centre of Bergen, to the fish market and then to Bryggen after stopping for an ice cream!
We then walked to Bergenhus Festning (fortress) and looked around the old fort! Unfortunately, the museum was closed so we were unable to enter, though Curtis & Kim have been before (twice)!
We the headed back into town and went to Nordnesparken. This is a big park which also has an outdoor swimming pool and diving board into the sea!
We then headed back to Espen’s car and towards IKEA!
We had some meatballs, of course, and got very full before walking around the shop floor, because it’s the most fun part time!
We headed back and continued with flight booking for our onward travels and we now have some flights booked, but who knows where to?!
We started the day with Kim being very excited to see her parents again! After breakfast, Espen picked up Kim to go to the airport to pick up her parents! Once we got back we were able to relax and have a cup of tea!
We then went for a drive to Fjell Festning, which is an old WW2 fortress made by the Nazis in just 2 weeks! It was well preserved and Good fun!
We finished there after looking at the wonderful view and then we headed back for some wonderful food! We had ‘Taco Thursday’ with Tom, Maggie, Espen, Tony and Marcus!
It’s been a pretty fun evening with many more fun days to come in the next few days.
We spent today inside, despite the good weather, trying to decide where we are heading next. It may be that we head to somewhere in mainland Europe on Monday as getting to Finland and flying from there is an absolute mission! It’s very expensive..We would love to visit Finland, but it seems it may not happen on this trip.
Espen and Marcus came over for dinner and to discuss what the plans are for the rest of the week!
It was an awesome evening with some laughs and just a bit of fun and plenty of Norwegian insults, of course!
They’ve both gone home and we’re still thinking about where to go!! Let’s see where it takes us, shall we!
