Norvegia Comments

Trondheim has the clean, fresh atmosphere of a small city, but the variety and possibilities of a big city. Friendly, but hardy people. Most younger people speak good English.
Geilo is very nice! Also for skiing or snowboarding. Very good ski school and nice people. Nice small village with railstation. Let's go to Geilo!
Bergen is very pretty, surrounded by hills and with a beautiful harbour. I suggest you bring a raincoat though, cause it rains 275 days a year (Lonely Planet statistic). It is pricey, so be prepared. If coming from Oslo take the 'Norway in a Nutshell' option and get off the train at Myrdal, train down to Flåm, ferry to Gudvangen, and catch the bus back to Voss and get back on the Olso-Bergen railway. You can buy a pass which includes all transport (visit www.norwayinanutshell.com). We found a cheap pub which did dinner and a Pepsi for 50kr (cheap by Norwegian standards), it's called the Scotsman and the food is ok for the price. Tip: Shops are closed on Sundays, including supermarkets, and the place is pretty dead.
Stavanger is a small city bustling with business activities. So the three hotels and five-star hotels are always full. So if you want a space to rest overnight, boy, you are in trouble, so book a hotel before you arrive. The city has just one hostel, which opens only for three months from June.
I went on a school trip to Voss and went snowboarding on the local slopes and loved it. Never had such a good time! Everyone is lovely and the snow is great. Goin back soon.
In reality, you really don't need to know a word of Norwegian to successfully get around Oslo or Norway in general. Know that "Heisann" is hello and takk (pronounced "tuck") is thank you. Everyone there speaks English. Also, ladies, Norwegian boys are hot and have cute accents.
I attended the 150 Year Jubilee held in Meråker. Meråker's residents are the kindest and most pleasant people I have ever met. Don't forget to visit the museum in Pulden and the museum in Kopperå. I plan to return soon, to visit my many relatives in Meråker, Stjørdal and Hell.
Ålesund … This is a pretty town built completely in art noveau style (Nordic variant called "jurgenstil"). It's perfect to take photos there, with its beautiful buildings and clean streets. Spend the morning having a walk through the port and try to taste the raspberries and blackberries they sell in the city market during the summer -- they're delicious (and quite cheap for Norwegian standards!).
