A day on the fjords with a train ride in for good measure

A boat trip through the fjords - had to be done and that was our day out yesterday! We caught the bus to Gudvangen which went through the long tunnel (again!) followed by more tunnels and got off at our destination 2 hours before the boat was due. Luckily the sustantial shop and coffee shop opened at ten so after a quick perusal of the gift shop (seal fur?? Awful) we had a hot chocolate and a hot waffle. 

The scenery is spectacular and I took quite a lot of pics before the boat arrived:
We all rushed to get tickets and our seats  on the boat. Lots of people took the chairs outside but since it was a little chilly we grabbed a table and made ourselves comfortable...

Then off we went!! And there is no need for any more words.... 
After 2 hours the boat arrived in Flam where we then caught the train to Myrdal.
When we got up to Myrdal it was snowing which was lovely - this is on the main Bergen to Oslo line but as we were going back to laerdal we headed back to Flam and a coach back through THAT tunnel again!!
