Old Stavanger

March 17, 2013

We finally bought ourselves the wind-and waterproof jackets that we need to wear to endure Stavanger weather.

On the bottom of the bag I found the brand’s quote and it inspired me:

“Where mountains touch the sky and water reaches land, is where we live, create and dream.”

And guess what, we couldn’t stop enduring. We felt so comfortable and warm that we walked for 4 hours, without entering heated places to “recharge”.

Our jackets are bright red and orange, you can’t really miss us now! If you see us walking around town, come and say hi 🙂

We visited the old part of town “Gamle Stavanger”. It’s a really charming area with its cobbled streets and wooden houses.

We walked up to the Concert hall, which is a modern construction that stands in fascinating contrast to the cute little wooden homes and made our way back to the center passing some of the bigger ships docked on Strandkaien.

For dinner, we decided to take a trip back to Cairo and ate at “Shawerma Kairo”. We concluded it wasn’t really worth the trip to Egypt – although the food was fine- and vowed to eat in more Norwegians places.

On our discovery, we passed the hermetic museum and the maritime museum and the place that gives information on all museums….there’s still so much to see!
