Met Terry Plant who wrote Nordic Journeys on the train to Flam.

The fjord known as Aurlandsfjorden is the arm of  Songnefjord, the longest fjord in Norway.

The peaks rose 4,000 feet above us.

The depth of the fjord is as deep as the peaks are high.

Undreal Village

Undreal Village - 700 Year old church is seen here at far right.

There were 700 known stave churches, now, only 204 still stand.  They were built entirely of wood and it's remarkable that even this number has survived for there has been many snow storms since the medieval times when they were created. These forms resemble stave churchs in Russia, Bohemia, Hungary and Germany.  This architecture is often credited to the Orient.  

Many painters are intoxicated with the old Norwegian pigmentation and fill their canvases with colors, mirror images reflected in the deep cold waters and the ornaments found in the village cottages as well as the intense moods of the seasons.


Naeroyfjord is a fjord by Songenfjord near Bergen

"There are fjords accessible by boat, and others fjords discovered only by the eider duck and the eagle.  There are fjords whose walls are treeless precipices and others where the forest slopes from crest to coast. There are fjords whose floors are broken platforms of stone, and still others which widen into harbours or shelves back into terraces or flatten into pastures."   [p. 22] Norway by Agnes Rothery

Bergen, Norway - 1990

The old German Quay, [Tyskebryggen] warehouses were rebuilt after a fire in 1702. Care was taken in rebuilding it as it was before the fire which was the third time and third fire since 1070.


"These blocks are penetrated by alleys of medieval narrowness, darkened by crazy roofs, eaves at all angles, and overhanging wooden galleries. Doors open into small dark cubbyholes, where women are cleaning fish and men are bailing papers and all of them, judging from the smell,, doing something with fish oil.  Other stairs lead up to other cubby-holes, doubtless as dark and malodorous.  Some of the wall are supported with solid wooden ribs, like a ship.," wrote Agnes Rothery in the book titled NORWAY [p. 152].
