Jun 2018 - Costa Favolosa - Days 3-4 Bergen and Kristiansand


Arriving this absolutely beautiful morning into Bergen


Bergen grew up around this colourful harbour - it was the hub of commerce, seafaring and crafts-manship. So important was Bergen by the 13th century that the Hansas - the German medieval guild of merchants - opened one of their four European offices on the wharf called Bryggen.



Seafood heaven - Oh yeah..


Suddenly you realise where the art director for the HP movies got some inspiration. Bergen old town is  more Hogsmeade than Hogsmeade


The Hanseatic Wharf




Passing under the Hardaber Bridge as we leave Bergen. Our captain seems to have a fixation on his horn.


Cunards Queen Elizabeth l crosses our path as we sail away from Bergen.


I wonder if it will actually go dark tonight - thank goodness for black out curtains.


Onward to Kristiansand, Norway. Where the sun is shining and everyone appears to own a boat of some size.



The Favlosa docks just around the corner from Fiskebrygga (Fish Wharf). A redeveloped tourist area now that is still home to the fish market, along with bars and restaurants.
 

Its a great place to pull up to in your own speedboat or yaught and just chill out.







The town is made up of lovely white clapperboard houses.



Dont forget your Lifejacket for the Dog
