Onward to Bergen

On June 6, we left beautiful Stalheim for Bergen, Norway.  There we toured the home of Edvard Grieg, a famous Norwegian composer and muscician.

After our sojourn to Grieg's home, we checked into the hotel, then looked about for a place to eat. Afterwards, my mother was very tied and just wanted to rest, so I arranged to go with others in our group to the Funicular where we rode to the summit of Mount Floien. The view was spectacular and we spent some time enjoying the area. Afterwards, we took our time walking back to the hotel. They had some market areas en route where we all stopped to by trinkets.

We also explored some of the narrow allies between homes and businesses to discover a small slice of medieval times.
