Greetings from Norway…wish you were here!

One of the highlights of my six-week backpacking trip through Europe in the ’90s was a visit to Bergen, Norway, the launching off point to the spectacular Norwegian Fjords (part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List). Bergen is located between the longest fjord Sognefijord to the north and Hardangerfjord in the south, offering the traveler a multitude of options for exploring this incredible, stunning scenery.
I took a cruise up the fjords, got dumped off for two hours in the midst of this incredible scenery with no town, no people, nothing except nature at its finest. I hiked around for an hour, marveling at the beauty of this place and then caught the boat back to Bergen.
