Brace yourself! There were so many photos to choose from, it was difficult for me to narrow them down. These are from our arrival in Bergen, our trip through the Fjords, into the tiny town of Flam, the long and likely most beautiful train ride to Oslo, then of course the city itself. We both LOVED Norway for so many reasons, but the people we stayed with were especially generous. The terrain and landscape in many places was reminiscent of Oregon, others was unlike anything we had seen. You may find Part 1 of our trip photos here.
