I have been revisiting some travel photos from the past couple of years and wanted to share a few images from a trip to Norway I took with my parents and family friend. We travelled from Oslo to Bergen on what is considered one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world, the Bergensbanen, or Bergen Line. It doesn’t get this reputation from nowhere – it was seriously amazing. From here we had an overnight stay on a cruise ship, sailing amongst the fjords in nearly 24 hour sunlight. It was a bizarre, serene experience to witness the faint light in the very early hours of the morning.
We completed this short cruise in Molde, a stunning seaside town located on the Romsdal Peninsula. If you ever get the chance to make it to this part of the world, take the opportunity to do the epic drive along the Atlantic Ocean Road, famous for its ‘Bridge to Nowhere’. Revisiting these photos make me eager to return to Scandinavia, and hopefully I will have a chance to explore this part of the world a lot more one day!
