Since I'd already been to Denmark and Sweden, Norway completes the set. It was a great trip which ended on Monday when I got home to jet lag and laundry after a one-day stop in Iceland. Back to my desk at home and gorgeous weather in Seattle (81 today). I expect to be on the road or in the air again soon.

Yesterday we spent a collective 7 hours on trains (just two) getting from Flam back to Oslo. It was a comfy if long journey through some spectacular scenery.
|Same waterfall as on the way in; this time I was able to capture the dancing Norwegian sprite. We wondered how much the tourist board pays this girl and hoped it was a lot.|

Yesterday we took the train from Bergen to Flam. The train line goes all the way to Oslo but we got off in Myrdal and took the spur north to this picturesque village nestled at the end of a fjord.

Today was a spectacular day in Bergen, a great day to be on the water. We boarded our sight-seeing boat at 10am and cruised through the Osterfjord.
