We are Bergen bound! This afternoon we said goodbye to the Aurlandsfjord and Flam area as we headed west to Bergen. The westward journey was only 2 1/2 hours, which compared to our travels to Trondheim and the Fjords was a relatively quick trip.
I have to say I was worried that driving in Norway would be disastrous for us, but it has worked out pretty well. The road are quite narrower than what we are accustom to, h however, but there is also significantly less traffic. More importantly, our fellow drivers in here are far more congenial than they are in South Florida. I can’t imagine South Florida drivers trying to navigate the mountain route up to Stegastein (nobody would survive.)
The vista were once again spellbinding, which makes for an entertaining drive. Tvindefossen is a waterfall visible from E16 just outside of Voss and is pictured above. I don’t think any of us enjoy all the tunnels, especially my husband who has done most of the driving. Thankfully, he gets a break from driving duty as Bergen is our home base for the next several days. Bergen is a walking city that we are excited to explore.
