I went to Levy Market after work last night, it was a street food special so I couldn’t resist popping along and sampling a few local delights.

We embarked onto our train at Oslo station and settled in for a long journey across the width of Norway to our next destination – Bergen. The train journey was incredible with some spectacular views as is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful train journeys you can take in Europe.
