I noticed it's pretty easy to travel in Norway (and safe), all you need is only common sense and English (most Norwegian are friendly and they mostly understand English). I have booked the Sognefjord ina nutshell tour on https://www.fjordtours.no and the route take me via Bergen - Vik - Balestrand - Flåm/Aurland - Myrdal - Oslo. This is my next 5 days journey.
Arrving at Skansen pension which is a very nice pension with short walk to the famous fish market (http://www.
I took Floibanen Funicular to Mount Floyen the next morning and spending my time most of it scrolling around area of the very first buildings in Bergen were alongside the harbour called Bryggen. I enjoyed my 2 days in Bergen even it was a pity that I didn't come with anyone as there are so much to share and to see. As I said good bye to Bergen ( which I believe I will come back again) I was on my way to Flaam - to see the fjord via a 3 hours of cruise tour.
If one would like to know what is in Flaam , please visit http://www.
I leave from Bergen via train to Voss, coach to Gudvangen, Boat to Flam, then at the end of my trip in Flaam, I shall jump on the Flamsbana train up to Myrdal. On the way to Gutvagen , we stopped to take picture of the waterfall which was very nice, the valley, waterfall and the moutnains along the bus tour was remarkeable view. The boat ride to Flaam--> The fjord view was spectacular and the fresh air is really 'refeshing' :). This is the most enjoyable solo trip for me I must say .
When I arrived in Flaam --> the hihostel I booked was just opened for 2 days. Everything was clean and new and the kitchen was very impressive.
From Myrdal to Osol, I catch a train, alogn the journey I met a friendly Norwegian and I saw the glacier , which is the first time in my life. I enjoyed the ride a lot. In Oslo it's almost the end of my trip where I basically just chilled out at the city and catch my flight next day to Prague.
