I have to now point out that travel in and around Norway is completely different to anywhere else. It is unique in the fact that due to the landscape its impossible to go in a straight line over land and so the coaches, buses and any other vehicle you can think usually travel that straight line in a variety of ways. Some roads go through mountains and some go under the sea via tunnels. When the roads stop the boats start but either way the scenery is truly amazing and makes the journey so much more quicker.

So now here I am in Bergen, staying at the Marken Hostel which thankfully is a short walk from the main train station. Its a basic set up with a decent sized bed, fully working kitchen in the room, private bathroom and the bed linen and towels have been starched to within an inch of their lives.

As I am spending not much time in Bergen I only have time for a short walk along the docks. But there is a monorail ride at the top of the mountain that sits behind the town and lots of shops and pubs to visit.
