bergen, norway guide

Bergen felt a bit like walking through a painting; colors, textures, layers - not a finished work, but rather, perpetually in process. 

While we only romped around this fjord town for a few days, we managed to see a good bit. According to a friend at college here, "there isn't much to see anyways." He was wrong, of course, but I find that attitude in many places I visit! Once a Japanese man informed me that the green mountains of the Kiso Valley were "only mundane, for we see it always." 

As someone who was merely passing through, however, I found Bergen to be a soul searching city. One that enables you to slow down just enough to ask yourself if you really are on the path of life you want to be.

I can't remember the last time we stayed in a real hotel. It's been so long in fact, that hotel booking websites stress me out.
