Bergen #5: Weekend on Hardangervidda

Tony came down to Bergen for a long weekend and brought some sunny weather with him. We took the train up to Finse for a 2-day ski trip to Geiterygghytte and back in beautiful spring weather. On the way back to Bergen we took the tourist route via the Flåm railway to Flåm followed by a boat trip through Nærøyfjorden to Gudvangen. A welcome break from the grey weather in Bergen and the counting of fission tracks.

Bergen #4: Rain

Bergen has lived up to its reputation of being wet in the 2 weeks that I have now been working here. But this morning, the sky was blue and the sun was shining for a few hours, before the next hail showers came in, and I made a detour over Løvstakken on my way to the university.
