Europe » Norway » Eastern Norway » Oslo July 6th 2011

Saw at first-hand the changing face of Europe. The area around the hostel felt more like North Africa than Norway with Norwegians very definitely in the minority. The vast majority were Somalians and other refugees from North Africa. In the morning had breakfast outside the National Theatre and then caught the ferry to the open-air museum in Bygdoy. Then it was a few hours free time before catching taxis to the airport for our flight back to London.... read more

Europe » Norway » Western Norway July 4th 2011

Very cloudy start to the day but, nonetheless, I decided we should take the tram to the top of Flojen and hope the cloud cover would break. At the top we could see absolutely nothing so we went for a hike to one of the nearby lakes. There the students were able to do some kayaking which was a great experience for them. We then walked back to the viewpoint and were very lucky to get very clear views of Bergen and beyond. After a break for some refreshments we then hiked back down to the city centre looking out for and finding blueberries on the way. The rest of the afternoon was spent sightseeing and buying food in the fishmarket. In the evening the students cooked delicious food in the hostel.... read more
