Last week me and my partner headed off to Norway for five days and our trip started in Bergen, Norway’s second largest city.
We started the day with a McDonald’s breakfast.
Before heading off to the airport.
Us in the airport.
Before getting on the plane for the short flight to Norway.
The view from the plane, as we flew over Bergen.
Once we arrived at Bergen airport, we took a taxi to the apartment we’d booked through Airbnb.
The beautiful streets leading to our apartment.
And the quaint, cobbled street where our apartment was situated.
Inside our apartment.
I was super impressed by the apartment as it was cosy, had everything we needed including a cute little outdoor area and it quickly felt like home.
It was also set in a really stunning area of Bergen, that was peaceful yet not far from the centre of the city.
After checking out the apartment and unpacking, we walked around the city.
The Harbour front.
The downtown area of Bergen, with street art.
And a McDonald’s in the most gorgeous building.
Where I tried a Veggie McSpice, a Norway special which was pretty good.
After a wander around the city, we took the Fløibanen Funicular up to the top of Fløyen Mountain just in time for sunset.
View from the top of Fløyen Mountain.
We admired the sunset and Bergen’s beauty from every angle, before wandering around Fløyen Mountain, where we found a gift shop.
I loved this Norway hat in the store.
And near the outside play area was a giant troll! Trolls are often featured in Norwegian tales and folklore.
Once we’d explored Fløyen, we took the funicular back down and grabbed some food.
We’d been snacking all day on cinnamon rolls, sweets and more, so we opted for something casual rather than a proper meal.
We both got the veggie burrito at Los Tacos and it was huge and tasty! Definitely a meal on its own.
After a great first day, we headed back to our apartment to get some rest before day two, my birthday.
