First day of vacation in Norway and I immediately hit the funicular to explore the upper cliff side of Bergen, known as Floyen.
The views and weather were stunning on a gorgeous September day. There were plentiful hiking trails and I enjoyed the trek to the hidden lake. Then I climbed through troll forest and opted to stroll back down to town. I purposefully got a little lost and enjoyed a quiet afternoon weaving in and out of the colorful block houses lining the fishing town.
I perused the old fort and my clumsiness was in full effect, as I twisted my ankle jumping down from the wall into a full face plant. I rebounded without a soul seeing the embarrassing moment, and limped my way back through town to enjoy a Snickers waffle ice cream while watching all the boats pulling back into port.
Then it was off to a new hotel to meet my 11 fellow travelers for our 7 day Norwegian adventure.
