We find ourselves under the grey skies at the marina in flam Norway overlooking the beautiful fjord. Another blog iPhone update!
We are slowly making our way to western Norway fighting the cold rain and grey skies for the past week. Today we became uber excited upon seeing the sun for the first time in Norway. This was as the train cruised past the impressive glaciers on top of Europe’s highest plateau.
The last hour of today’s train ride was down an incredibly steep section of regular gauge track – not narrow gauge. We stopped at a rushing waterfall and were treated to inspirational music complete with dancing Scandinavian princesses. They try to lure men to the rocks next to the waterfall with their singing – a Norwegian legend. How often can you tell someone your job is dancing for tourists next to a waterfall!
