Norway

After Iceland, we took a quick tour of southern Norway via the Norway in a Nutshell route. Most of the trip was spent sitting on a train trying to take decent pictures while moving and with glass windows in the way. We then sat on a ferry trying to take decent pictures while the sun set and the light slowly disappeared.

The Flam Railway was pretty cute. With all the tunnels, it was like playing peek-a-boo with the mountains.

Along the way we must have looked quite lost because a student asked us if we needed directions as we passed through a university campus. We were actually lost, so that was pretty helpful. When we finally made it to the apartment complex, I discovered my phone had decided to stop working because it was too cold. That was rather unfortunate because the instructions on which apartment to ring were on there. So I tried my best to remember what I had read and made an educated guess. I got lucky. It was the right one.
