I had spent a few days in Copenhagen first and then made my way to Bergen by plane. From there, I followed Andre’s directions for travel to downtown Bergen, checked into my modern and central hotel, and spent time at an art museum. The next day I explored Bergen with a lifetime resident and learned so much about the history of the city. En route to Oslo I experienced travel via train, bus, and even a fjord cruise through the gorgeous Nærøyfjord. I appreciated that André understood how important it was to me to experience the sights and scenic routes Norway has to offer. I checked into another modern and central hotel in Oslo and spent the next day exploring town with another local expert and doing some Christmas shopping. I would love to come back to Scandinavia again in the future- maybe next time in the summer!
