Since we moved to the center of the city, we started to have this kind of tradition every weekend: mountain hiking. We are blessed that our beautiful city has access to places where one can commune with nature right in the middle of the city. It holds true to other Norwegian cities as well.
Bergen city is where Odd and I live. It’s the second largest city in Norway, but it has this small town feeling and surrounded by seven mountains. Fløyen is the most popular tourist destination among the seven mountains and we live on the foot of it. So during weekends (if the weather is also nice) we usually trek to the top and admire the view while having tea or ice cream since there’s a restaurant up there.
Here are the pictures I took with my DSLR camera. If you like the photos you can download them on my Flickr page.
