Bergen


The problem with Bergen is that, while it's perfectly charming, and historically interesting -- it was a major center for the Hanseatic League and the old warehouses still line the pier - it's not a fjord, and from what I can see, doesn't contain a single waterfall.

Plus it was still raining. It rains 220 days a year, according to our guide, and the joke here is that babies in Bergen pop out with umbrellas.
