Goodbye Bergen

Date: 14th October 2011

 

After the walk around the Bryggen and the ride up the Floibanen, we walked back to our hotel.

DH still wanted to snap a few more pix of Bryggen from a distance, hence we got this one:

 

and this:

 

and this:

 

We even watched a ship leaving the harbour, and another one taking over its place:

 

 

We took a different way back to the hotel. Not that we were lost, but more because we wanted to see the place:

 

Nothing spactacular – people going about their day-to-day activity:

 

The streets were pretty quiet, for a Friday afternoon:

 

 

 

Everything is expensive. Here’s a list of how much it cost to get services from the hairdresser:

 

We passed the town theatre hall, but only the side view (the front part was under restoration):-

 

and the nearby square:

 

We found a halal kebab outlet:

 

And we got a rolled chicken kebab. Too big to eat alone so we shared:

 

Done with kebab, we went back to our hotel to collect our bags. I managed to access the internet (FB) briefly :) :

 

Walking briskly to the Airport bus station, which is just round the corner of Hotel Radisson Blu.

We had a pleasant surprise when we found out the bus actually offers free wi-fi!!

We also had free internet access at Bergen Airport.

 

To get to Tromso, we had to take a flight back to Oslo, then get a connection flight to Tromso. By the time we arrived at Tromso Airport, it was 11.30pm local time.

 

Next: Staying in Tromso

    I love the facade of European cities. And to see what normal people do there is priceless.

    Bergen is such a nice place. I think this hairdresser’s prices are reasonable, not really expensive compared to others…

    Astrid,
    To the locals I think most prices are reasonable. But for people from Malaysia like me, when I convert it, everything becomes so expensive. It’s even expensive when compared to those in Britain, America or Australasian.

    Bergen is indeed beautiful. Come to think of it, all towns/cities that we visited/saw in this journey are beautiful!! :)
