Norwegian Experience Trip Day 2: UPDATE

We spoke with Marcia Stein about her first couple of days in Bergen and this is what she had to say:

"When we arrived in Bergen on Wednesday, we weren't too tired from our trip, so we decided to walk around and get to see some of the city. We ended up stumbling upon an open-air concert in the main square of the city. It was an amazing and fortuitous welcome to Bergen.

Then on Thursday, we spent the morning taking a guided tour of the city. We went to an open-air architecture museum, which was very interesting to us and it made for a nice outdoor activity. Then we went to the fish market where we tasted so many new flavors and foods. It was absolutely amazing--I tried smoked whale for the first time and it was delicious! In fact, I liked it better than the salmon and caviar that we tried. I had expected it to taste fishy, but it wasn't.

Next we went to St. Mary's church, which was breath-taking. It's the oldest building in Bergen and the architecture is fantastic! There is so much history here, that it's sometimes hard to take it all in. This trip has been so amazing--thank you Sons of Norway and Borton Overseas!"
