Fantoft Stave Church

My sister and I set out this morning for a stave church in Bergen – and it was a thrill to see it at last.

And exhausting and nerve-wracking. We followed some bad advice and ended up walking (mostly uphill) for half an hour – it was supposed to take 10 minutes – and no stave church in sight. We flagged a woman driving slowly down a side street and asked if she knew where it was. “It’s too far for you to walk,” she said. “I’ll take you there.” 

And she did!

My thanks to everyone who sent positive energy our way. Bergen gets rain 300 days of the year, and it poured twice today – both times while my sister and I were indoors.
