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....

Bergen
The journey from Bergen to the top of Mt. Fløyen takes under ten minutes, but rewards you with an exciting and scenic climb to 320 m above sea level. The Fløibanen Funicular slowly goes up the track, with views across Bergen and the surrounding mountains and fjords getting more incredible the higher you climb. Once you reach the top, the panoramic view over Bergen and the surrounding landscape is nothing short of magnificent. I loved the trip on the Fløibanen Funicular so much, I did it twice. Once during a lucky sunny morning and another time as dusk came slowly over the landscape, the lights illuminating the shadowy mountains above them. The trip was by far my most favorite experience in Bergen, an adventure full of nature and scenery that is so breathtaking the word isn’t even cliché when used to describe it. There are a multitude of hiking trails, activities, playgrounds for children, and a restaurant and cafe which offer food and drinks. I enjoyed getting lost along the trails in the dense forest of Mt. Fløyen, and would recommend taking an entire day if you have it to fully enjoy the experience. The Fløibanen Funicular has put together an awesome brochure on the different walks and hikes you can take, you can check it out here.

Bryggen 35, Bergen 5003
Bryggen is Norwegian for 'the quay' - and it happens to be listed in the UNESCO world cultural heritage sites. To me, however, its appeal is different - it has two of my favorite things - old wooden buildings (61 of them) and a fish market (popularly known as the wharf).
