On the horizon – Norway!

January 18, 2016

Most people with a 9 – 5 office job will understand the monotony of going to work in an office for five days a week. The problems that come up are often the same, and the work varies…but not enough to be noteworthy.

I’ve gotten to that part of the year where I’ve had nearly a month off work, due to holiday and Christmas leave, and it’s back to work with a bang. I’ve had a taste of travelling and I’d really like to do more, if only I had the bank balance to make it a reality. And just as I start to get all grumpy about my job, an opportunity popped up. A trip to Norway!

Initially, I was super excited to be asked to go. And then I was super nervous about going, and decided that I’d leave it, and that I’d just go to Norway on my own time and be able to do what I wanted. And then I spoke to the lovely Emily from That Emily, who reminded me that basically I’d be stupid not to take such an opportunity. So I was back to being super nervous.

Nevertheless, I’m off to Norway, nervous or not! It will be my first time in Norway, my first time travelling on my own, my first time flying on my own – ahhhh!! – my first time on a business trip and my first time going somewhere that cold. Lots of firsts, lots of nerves. But hey, it’s good to do things that scare you sometimes…right?

I’ve got a week away, with three days in Stavanger and four days in Bergen. I won’t have a great deal of free time in Stavanger, but enough to hopefully see the place. If the plans work out as they should, I’ll have a whole day free in Bergen, along with a couple of evenings, so hopefully I’ll get to see a bit of Bergen too.

Always nice to have some last minute plans pop up…keeps life interesting! And hopefully I’ll be able to add a few new postcards to my collection!

        There is a fish market near the water & depending on the people working there, I got to try some salmon & even whale there. Worth a try!

        • Whale?! Oh wow, I’ll definitely be heading there to check it out. I’ve got a feeling it might be near where I’m staying!

            Yep! I was only there for 1 full day so cannot give you anymore tips :(. I hope you’ll be blogging about it!
