Today we made our way back to Bergen, where we spent a few hours in the train station on Saturday morning. This time we’re staying a little longer but unfortunately not long enough for me to get to the site I most wanted to see here, Edvard Grieg’s home. Troldhaugen is supposed to be an excellent museum, and if you go in the morning you can catch the daily concert. But the trip back from Flam took all day (OK, I’ll admit it was a very scenic day which included the Flamsbana train ride). But no hall of the mountain king for me.
Instead, we strolled along the waterfront with its famous Bryggen buildings, from the 1700s:
And we wandered through the old town:
And we enjoyed some interesting statuary and public buildings:
But really, the coolest part about Bergen was the seagulls. The light was just right for me to take these photos – and rid my backpack of some stale breadrolls left over from our fishy cheesy meals at the same time.
