Don’t let the weather confuse you, it is Summertime despite the rain and the grey. Although, maybe it’s finally shaping up a little better, now? I do not know personally, I’m writing this post early, as I will be out of town this week.
Doesn’t look too promising, not that weather predictions are full-proof. Image: http://www.weather.com/weather/today/l/NOXX0004:1:NO
If you’re one of those students who, like me, is staying in Bergen (mostly) rather than heading back to your country of origin, you might need something fun to do (to distract you from that residency-renewal-related-stress-disorder). Of course there are always mountains to hike, and there are fjords to swim in if the weather ever warms, but what other going-ons might you partake of in Bergen in the summer?
