Bergen, Norway ❤

The last big journey of this summer led me to Norway. That in itself is a bit of a longer story, as I actually planned to stay on a farm for a month to do some serious detoxing from all things technology, thinking, people and everything else, and indulge in the pleasures of a simple happy life with early mornings and complete physical exhaustion instead. But then I remembered that a) I’d probably get bored after two days of sleeping in the same bed and feeding the same sheep and looking at the same scenery (which indeed proves how badly I need to do something like that) and that I’m b) actually not that big a fan of animals (if they are not called Charly and really fluffy) in general. Anyway, Norway and all the good stuff I’ve heard and seen of it still tempted me, so instead of a month, I made it a week and started in Bergen where a beautiful friend of mine from London showed me around.

And what can I say, I loved it. The real true, head-over-heels kind. If you’ve never been to Scandinavia, it’ll be hard to get that across but I’ll give it a go. The air is so much fresher, everything’s clean, like spotless, people are truly happy, warm and a nice kind of shy. They value the country they live in to the point where schools are up a mountain and parents would take their kids and walk up there every morning and down in the afternoon (30 minutes per way), because of the stunning views and because spending time in nature equals quality time. So the ‘Norway fever’ pretty much caught me from the second I stepped out of the plane and has stayed with me since. But these rather ‘urban’ Bergen shots are only the start, there’s more to come this week!
