Bergen City in Norway. Bergen is a city on Norway’s southwestern coast. It’s surrounded by mountains and fjords, including Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest. Bryggen features colorful wooden houses on the old wharf, once a center of the Hanseatic League’s trading empire.

In July I will be leaving for a month-long trip to Croatia and Italy, but until then I won’t have some new pictures to share.  Instead, I’ll keep posting photos from my travels last year.  Today I’ve got some more pictures from Scandinavia that I feel should be shared. Enjoy!
