Today was a rest day (compared to the others). We slept in, had a leisurely breakfast, and then struck out to tour the city of Bergen. We made some reservations for a short Fjord cruise for tomorrow and then took a funicular (small mountain train) up to the high point of Bergen. The view of the harbor, the town, and the fjords in the distance was excellent. After that, we did a little shopping and stopped for a skillingbolle (a Norwegian cinnamon roll). After cruising the town a little more, we sampled more Norwegian specialties. Amy loved the reindeer filet and Brian snacked on mussels in a cream wine sauce and fries. In a moderate food coma, we headed back to the hotel where Amy found a "relaxation room", with Yanni-type music and massage chair. (Amy is still there at the time of this writing...). Wine-thirty and a (very) light dinner is planned for later. Tomorrow is one more adventure and packing before the journey home. Stay tuned.
