We started our second day with tour guide through Nidaros Domkirke (Cathedral) which we managed to get for free (because of some misunderstanding). However, for students the price is 50 NOK, so if we had to pay, we would do that, it’s not that expensive.
In my last post about packing for a trip, I didn’t mention where I will go. So here you go, Trondheim, Nidaros, Kaupangen, City of Kings. Located in the North-East of Norway, in the Sør-Trøndelag county.
One of the closest cities to Hamar, so I thought – why not? It takes only 40 minutes from my city, and the tickets on NSB are relatably cheap – around 109,- if you happend to be a student of course. I didn’t plan it, it was totally spontaneous. And you know what? Those are the best trips.
On 17th september there was really nice and family-friendly event in Hamar, Domkirkeodden, and here’s short photo reportage of it. There were horses, ladies with their coffee and cakes, playgrounds for kids, old houses opened for visiting and many other things. Enjoy!
It’s… small. Really small, about 30,000 folks live here. But some people say that small is beautiful, and they’re absolutely right. In Norway you probably can’t find an ugly city, it’s just impossible. It’s like – å lete etter en nål i en høystakk – looking for a needle in a haystack.
Exploring new city usually starts when you arrive. But when it happens after 5 pm, it can be really hard. So you began to just wander around new places, looking like child who got their candy. Every building and every person mesmerize you, and you try to capture everything in one breath. Then the night suddenly comes and you set your alarm at 7 am, so you can see everything tomorrow. It’s the only time, when the hour on the alarm doesn’t upset you, but exictes you.
So this the final day of my visit in Bergen. Because I love mountain hiking and had nothing fun to do in the city, I thought why not go ‘carpe diem’ and hike to Mount Ulriken. My friend, Frode, told me that it’s really simple and fun trail. I woke up around 8 am., ate some porridge (norwegians make the best porridge, trust me) and went out for my adventure. The weather was really nice and promising, so no worries were in my head that moment.
