Haha, David and I are steadily settling into our normal lifestyle of lazing around and late mornings and afternoons that we are so familiar with back at uni. We started off the week all geared up and rearing to get out and discover Bergen, but as the days have gone (and the weather has deteriorated) we have seemed to got a bit more lazy. Nice with a bit of a break too actually! No parents to tell me I need to do this and that! Home alone and time to relax!
On Friday David and I joined my old gang from Videregående for a bit of bowling before we all headed home to my friend for some Mexican and an intense game of Monopoly! I had totally forgotten how fun that game was!
On Saturday though we decided to ignore the bad weather and go for another little road trip to see more of Bergen. This time we went on a trip my mum had recommended from Hjellestad -with the ferry – Klokkarvik – Glesvær – the Bridge in the North – Bergen. My friend Robert offered to drive, as I was a bit tired of driving all the time, and we had a lovely afternoon! We waited for the ferry for a while (cause we didn’t check the times before we left, wops) and gorged ourselves on jummy cinamon giflar and tasty crisps. In the local shop I also found a cherished childhood memory, namely a little drink for kids shaped like a teddy. Do you Norwegian guys remember those?
Our first and only stop was to a place called Glesvær. A cute little village by the sea, which had a cool penguin statue display and a cosy café where we stopped for a quick drink. Inside the cafe it was decorated with vintage ornaments and stuff. Onwards we drove up to the top of the island of Sotra and over the bridge to Bergen.
In the town David and I had a lovely meal at Egon and then enjoyed a stroll around the area.
