This month I had a chance to visit Bergen in Norway. This time, I came to visit my husband, Wira. He’s having some course there.
This city was located in south-western coast of Norway and the second largest city in Norway.
Arrived in Bergen airport around 3 pm on one nice Saturday, we were going straight to Fantoft (area where Wira live). It takes more than an hour because we have to wait quite sometimes for the bus & tram. We took bus from airport to Fjøsanger and then change to city bus to central bus station and then took tram to Fantoft. For the aiport bus ticket you can buy one way or return and good for a month. And then spent the rest of the day at our room. Dark still come early now, around 4.30 pm.
On second day, we’re going to explore the town. The day quite nice, the sun came up and the dark cloud disappeared. It’s sunday and like most of part in Europe, the store are close. Only some souvenir shop and fast food that open. Oooo...there’s also some coffee shop that open, but not many.
On the third day I visit Norway, Wira and I went to Stavanger to visit Olin and her family. She was an AFS exchange student that stay in Indonesia back in 1994-1995. We start to get in touch again with her. We will stay with her and family for 3 days.
We took bus from Bergen to Stavanger. It took 5 hour to get there. Our trip accompanied by nice view along the way. To cross the fjords we had to take ferries twice and through some tunnels. Stavanger is known for the petroleum and it’s number fourth biggest city in norway. We arrived around 3 pm and Olin picked us up at the bus station.
On the way home, first we took Arne at the kindergarten. The kindergarten is an outside kindergarten. Everytime it’s possible to be outside, the kids will be playing outside almost all day, even if the snow there like that day. Every kids equipped with thick clothes.
