On the first ferry from Bergen to Stavanger

A new day of traveling just started. I slept in first for a while. After I got up I took my time to pack my bagpack and checked out the hotel. I bought my breakfast in a supermarket and also something to eat for lunch since I was going to sit in the bus for quite a while.

I ate my breakfast at the bus station. At 12:00 noon my bus left for Stavanger. We drove through a waterworld. Almost all the time we could see water around us. The views were very nice, a pity though it was clouded. We had to take two ferries during this bus ride. And a ferry means we have to leave the bus, so we could walk around on the ferry. Which I did of course to enjoy the great views.

It was 5:20 p.m. when we arrived at the bus station of Stavanger. The hostel I booked a bed was 3 km walking from the bus station.

I decided to walk all the way there. Funny thing about the hostel is, it is located at the hospital of the city. It was a longer and harder way to walk and find it than I expected. Thanks for some locals who helped me finding my way there. Sometimes I had to walk quite steep up hill with my backpacks.

Arrived at the hostel I decided this was not only the first time, but also the last time I walked the way from the centre to the hostel or the other way around! When I checked in and arrived to my room, there was another guy in the room already. It was a guy from Israel. We started talking and I asked him about what he would do for dinner. He also did not have dinner yet, so we decided to go together. This time we took a city bus back to the city centre. We went out for dinner in a Thai restaurant tonight. Tasted good. After dinner we went back to the hostel by bus again and I slept early.

Bit of a gloomy day with the cloud cover, eh?
