Monday, exciting Monday

The morning started early as we had a train to catch, at the very impressive Bergen main train station (4 tracks).

The plans for the day is a train, then a bus then a boat to take us one of Norway’s many fjords.

During the beautiful fjord trip I received a phone call kindly informing me that the job I really, really wanted wasn’t to be mine, so I spent the ferry trip morning the same rather than taking pictures.

Our final stop was the (very) small village Flåm. The thing about travelling off-season is that most things are closed, we had a grocery store, souvenir shop and the brewery (opening at 18) to choose from.

So after finding our way to the evenings hostel, a 300-year old drafty building we walked back into town and did some shopping in the souvenir shop and the lunch and breakfast shopping at the grocery store before returning back ‘home’.

The short walk there and back pretty much gave us the lay of the land, pretty but small.

After lunch, that Meatfree Monday in honor was an Indian Lentil soup and bread, we spent some time just chillin in front of the heaters in the downstairs livingroom. The chairs being much more comfortable than they looked.

As the afternoon passed, both of us thought about how nice it would have been if we had gotten some dinner food while shopping as well, however since we didn’t we had to make our way out in the darkness and down to the brewery in order eat.

I really tried folks, however the vegetarian option on the menu wasn’t available, so I had to choose one of the meat dishes, and since I had to cross that line I might as well go for the ribs. Whit this I had one of the local beers, that was like candy to drink!

We finished our dinner pretty quickly since it had been a long day and we were tired and not looking forward to yet another walk in the cold. Almost at the hostel a car stopped and asked if we were the girls staying there, it turns out that  it was the people who came to get our money so for the last bit we got a ride, never wrong.

With eventful days like this, hanging out just reading doing nothing really in the evening is the best thing ever! So that is what we did, I even had another beer!
