Since Chris and I spent the summer apart, as he was in Portland Oregon for his internship with the Center for Public Interest Design, when he returned at the end of August we were eager to get away together to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary....

On sunny days there is nothing quite like sitting on the steps of Mount Fløyen with a melting ice cream in your hand while you try to pin point the sights you will check out later, like Grieghallen or the Aquarium. Take the funicular Floibannen to go up. I would suggest that you walk on your way back to get a view of the beautiful surroundings. It's an easy and peaceful walk. If one tires, there are benches spread all down the gravel hike path. It takes approximately a leisurely hour to make the transit down and is an activity for anyone of any age to enjoy.

Bryggen, the old wharf of Bergen, is a reminder of the town’s importance as part of the Hanseatic League’s trading empire from the 14th to the mid-16th century. Many fires, the last in 1955, have ravaged the characteristic wooden houses of Bryggen. Its rebuilding has traditionally followed old patterns and methods, thus leaving its main structure preserved, which is a relic of an ancient wooden urban structure once common in Northern Europe. Today, some 62 buildings remain of this former townscape. (Source: http://whc.unesco.org/)
