Norway in a Nutshell – our voyage to Flåm

This morning we caught a train from Bergen to Voss where we changed into a bus to Gudvangen & then a ferry to travel to Flåm on an amazingly steep fjord. It all seemed to be chaotic; there were mobs of people some of whom had to stand on both get train & the buses. It seemed like they didn’t have enough. Fortunately, we were early & found seats.

Once again the scenery is stunning & I’ll let the pictures speak.

Whilst we were on the ferry we spoke to a couple from Hong Kong, a family from Ontario now living in Norway for work, & their parents who live in Canada but have been in Swindon visiting family who also worked at Great Western Railway as my Alley family did. Small world, eh?

It’s been quite miserable drizzly cold weather today but we’re staying at Flåm in a very lovely hotel right beside the fjord. We have a lovely big bath tub so I’m off for a good soak before dinner.

The bus part of our journey today was over an incredibly windy road. Pictures of that to follow later.
