Norway: Bergen

Next we traveled to Bergen. On our way we stopped at this Stave church in Borgund. It was built sometime between 1180 and 1250 BC! It was made out of wood too! It's amazing that it has lasted this long. They cover it in tar once a year to withstand the weather. We thought it looked like something out of Harry Potter!

When we got to Bergen it was a chilly 45 degrees!  We enjoyed the market and G even tasted some fresh shrimp.  Matt was in heaven with all the fresh fish.  Bergen was a fun city and we even purchased a pewter cheese slicer.

We also decided to go to a children's science museum to brake up the bad weather.  The kids had a blast trying all the different exhibits.  Matt even had fun too!  The favorite was the motorcycle simulator.
