Bergen Experience

Bergen is a small city with a big tourist information center and quite a few Indian restaurants (compared to other european cities – and being Indians we found it to be very interesting). Having said that we loved our time in Bergen with some really beautiful weather (including a nice sunset) on one of the days. We saw glimpses of Amsterdam in Bergen – specifically around the harbour front. View from Mt. Floyen was great and the hikes around it were great.

What we found really interesting was the Stave Church hidden away from the city center. That’s the original form of Norwegian churches and it ressembled so much like a buddhist or chinese temple. Made us wonder whether they were just converted to christianity 1000 odd years ago.

Being a vegetarian food for me was largely Italian (and I do thank Italians for internationalizing their food) but my wife did enjoy some really good local fish.
