Aug. 10: Voss — Bergen

From Voss, we took a beautiful bus ride to Bergen. We stayed in a nice hotel right on the wharf and enjoyed our stay there, despite the fact that the elevator rides turned out to be more exciting than we wanted them to be. Steve took us on an interesting tour of the German wharf and told us all about the Hanseatic league and the sale of dried cod.

We also visited the Fish Market and the local cathedral.

Later in the afternoon, we took the funicular up to the top of Mount Fløyen, where we took some wonderful photos of the view over the city of Bergen.

Andy went for a long run and David for a long walk, while the rest of us relaxed in the sun on the patio of the restaurant there. A perfect day.
