Bergen is Burgundy and Greenygrey in Norway

Hi, it’s Jack Wolfpac, legendary travel correspondent at the Greenygrey. When I travelled to Bergen recently I expected it to be all burgundy coloured. So I was delighted to see there was a fine selection of greenygrey. Maybe it’s Burgundy in France that is burgundy?

Bergen Greenygrey Photos

In a double-day simultaneous blogcast with Marc Latham’s travel25years blog we’ve divided the photos into pre-Bryggen (the UNESCO site old docks) today, and Bryggen tomorrow; and greenygrey photos here and non-greenygrey ones over at the travel25years blog; although there is some greenygrey in those too!

So hopefully you’ll visit both sites on both days… there’s also a Bergen south blog preceding today’s blog over on travel25years that I haven’t had time to report here; and it includes a sunbeam through storm photo I like.

But don’t rush over yet, because here’s our pre-Bryggen greenygrey Bergen photos (you can see larger images by clicking on the photos):
