I had heard so much about this train ride from Oslo to Bergen, that I wasn’t sure it could live up to my expectations. I was so wrong.
And I must tell you that while I do think some of these photos are lovely, the train ride is so much better than I could ever convey.
Part of that is because what is so breathtaking is how the scenery never dulls. It’s 7 hours of gorgeous view after gorgeous view. The other reason is because my kid was exhausted on the day of this trip and had a complete meltdown on the train. Because Jamie and I were trying so hard to keep him calm for the rest of the trip, I’m afraid we didn’t get to view as much scenery as we would have liked. But still, what we saw was so beautiful.
Also, I would like to give a shout out to the amazing family across from us on the train, the Leafblads from Minneapolis. They were so kind and patient even when Ezra was at his worst, and I still feel badly about his behavior in front of them. But toddlers will be toddlers, and once he got in some good sleep things got better.
