By the time I had gotten to Bergen, everything was closed. Typical Europe. All I had left were some of the snacks from the day before, and I needed a real breakfast. I looked up the closest grocery store and headed out to pick up some stuff for the next few days. Mostly just milk, yogurt, water, and fruit.
The shower in the apartment is just a handheld little thing by the toilet. It's great since it's just me, but the whole bathroom gets wet and stays that way. All day.
No time to waste - this is the place I've been looking forward to the longest and I don't want to waste any daylight.
My Airbnb is right about the main part of the city. Literally a 2 minute walk, and it's perfect. As soon as I come down the hill I see Bryggen. Rows of connected wooden buildings that have been there in some form since medieval times. It's still a little rainy so I duck inside and walk through the shops, and admire the woodwork.
I bought a handbook on the history of the buildings from a souvenir shop and got piggy-backed on a little bit of a tour through the buildings.
Bought a Bergen pass and got directions to Grieg's home right outside the city.
It was easy enough to find, but NOT as easy as it sounded. DEFINITELY not as short of a walk. I thought I was seriously lost for a minute. Will take a bus or something next time.
First thing I did was buy a cold drink of water. Then used my pass to get in and explore the composer's home. So cool to see the tiny furniture and piano, and to be the only person there who was young enough to make it down the path to see the water and tomb.
