Bergen, August 29-2007 
OK, a little bit confused? This will be an English/Norwegian Blog, so all my friends and others can understand it. Today is the big "packing" day. We're leaving tomorrow morning. So the afternoon wil be bussy. The temperature here in Bergen is now 8 degrees celsius. So we won't be wearing the sam eclothes in Italy, where it is 15-20 degrees more...

Yepp, da blir det på Norsk også. I dag er den store pakke-dagen. Det er 23 grader i Venezia og 8 grader her heime, så vi tar vel med litt feile klær regner eg med. Men eg har belaget meg på å kjøpe denne gangen. Så da gjør det ikkje noe. Flyet går i 12-tiden i morgen, så litt hekltisk blir det vel i kveld.

Venice, September 02-2007
Ok again. This confuses me. Do I have to edit the first entry everytime I write on this blog. Can't I just add stuff, and a new date for the added things turns up?
Venice is great. Romantic, hectic, beautiful. Shopping is also great, if you want carneval masks, glass souvernirs or has a LOT of money to spend on clothes. In 3 and half days we have taken a "gondola" ride (for cost of 80 Euros for 40 min- thats a robbery!!), walked the many small streets of the city just to get lost, and end up in dead- end streets (ending in one of the many canals), eaten pizza and pasta and ice cream allmost every day, taken the vaporetto (boat) to the island of Murano, famos for it's production of glass items, visited Lido, where the film festival is going on right now (didn't see any selebrities thouh...), ant wached the anual gondola regatta en the "Grand canal"  for hours.

We have seen prices on food differs a lot. A cup of coffee americano van cost 1.60 Euro on eplace, and 3.00 Euro another place. The same happens wit the pizza, "rollos" (rolled sandwich) and wine. In the smaller narrow streets, it tends to be much cheaper than in the piazzas or at the seaside. So just remember: romantic costs...

Saa var det norsk. Herlig by Venezia. Men dyrt!! alle klesbutikkene er bare saanne fancy dyre ting. Maten er generellt dyrm drikken, baatene-alt. Men det er romantisk, saa det er verd det! Bare en gondoltur i seg selv koster 80 Euro for 40 minutter. Men man har ikke sett Venezia om man ikke har sett byen fra en gondol, saa det er et must. Det samme er aa traakke i de trange gatene som gaar paa kryss og tvers over kanalene. Plutselig ender man opp i en blindgate, rett i vannet, og maa traakle seg tilbake for aa finne en bro over kanalen. Men det er sjarmerende. Saa langt har vi spsit mye pizza og pasta, men ikke blitt lei enda. Prisene varierer mye alt etter hvor man er. Paa piazzaene og langs sjoekanten er restaurantene dyre, mens i de mindre gatene er de billigere. Saa man maa gjerne ofre litt romantikk for en gunstig pris.
