Bergen is Norway’s 2nd largest city, and is known for it’s constantly rainy weather. However, in the weekend trip me and Marie took to Bergen, we pretty much avoided all rain. We got snow instead. But as it was only snowing at night, I didn’t mind it. Besides, it has now been 3 years since I have seen a real layer of snow since I’ve been in Australia for the 2 last years – and after returning to Norway I’ve been staying in Stavanger which gets more ice than snow.
Overall a very chill weekend, but quite cosy with going out on cafes and partying until early morning.
Snow balancing on top of the phone lines and a layer of fog was presenting itself in the morning.
Marie up bright and early in the cold.
I really loved the foggy mountain scenery in Bergen this morning.
I got reminded how beautiful snow actually is. I’m usually a constant fighter against it, but I got to admit
it does have it’s benefits as well. Not only for being pretty, but also for lighting up the otherwise dark
season in Norway.
The sun just slightly shining through the fog.
While we do have the same style of tree houses in Stavanger, they do seem a little more like doll houses here as they are places on different levels throughout the hill landscapes.

Bybanen is Bergen’s new tram system. While only having 1 line at the moment, it was quite frequent and fast to get to downtown Bergen.

Way later in the night, when heading into the city again, the radio tower at the top of the mountain was lighting up in the dark.

Same scene but purposedly out of focus.
After fixing the camera adjustments for her, Marie captured a quite good photograph of me.
We ended up going out to Ujevnt on Saturday night, which was a very cosy and fun bar. It was quite social as well, we ended up talking to a bunch of other people we met.
The next morning there was a thick fog covering the city.
The scenery was a little haunting with the fog, branches with no leaves, lake and the cold winter mood.
