In pictures: Bergen, Norway

It’s been almost a year since our amazing trip to Norway (2015), the land of breathtaking fjords and mountains, happened. While looking through my photographs, I realized that even though I have already done a very long post on my Norway experiences, including this pretty little town called Bergen, this place deserves a separate post.

I am not going to talk about the place as I have already done that in my post.

Just posting a few photographs to celebrate this special trip. I will never get over those pretty houses and the streets.

However, no photographs in the world can justify its beauty, especially mine which were clicked on my mobile phone. But you already know that I am not a pro. It was a rainy day and the dreamy feel of such a day is evident in the photos. Those dark clouds looming so low in the sky only adds more character to the dramatic feel of this place.

So I hope you enjoy this post as everything still looks amazing.

I know this is not giving off any Coachella vibes and I look kind of funny but no one warned us about the weather

Even though we ate at different places including an Indian restaurant, this pizza is the only food I am going to remember from Bergen

    Oooh, what a reminder of one more place that is on my travel list. Haven’t been there since I was a kid but I remember those wooden streets (maybe from pictures?).
