Norway in a nutshell

For my last conference as a PhD student I went to Bergen, Norway. After two days of conference I took a day off. Taking advantage of the superb day we had today I went for the Nordic experience …5 hours of boat through the longest fjord in the world and another 3 hours of train seeing nice landscape (Bergen – Balestrand-Flam – Myrdal – Bergen). After this marathon 10 hours trip I got a little bit the taste of Norway and someday I will come back for real holidays. I think the best part of the trip was the last hour of boat when the fjord is getting narrow and the first hour of train from Flam to Myrdal. The rest is also nice but I would not do it again because is too tiring.
And now some photos…

P.S. Norway is expensive ….. a beer is around 10 euro …. :(
