    Flåm: Lunch Time!

    July 21, 2019 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 55 °F

    After our hike in 2017, we had lunch at the Flåm Marina Terrace. It was a fairly rustic place ... at least that was our recollection. But it had three things going for it. Good food ... amazing views of Aurlandsfjorden ... and a location away from the hubbub around the train station, which is the heart of all of the tourist activities.

    The food, views, and location were just as good as we remembered when we went back to the restaurant for a late lunch today. The only difference? Improved facilities, with a glassed-in terrace that provided protection from the elements ... without hindering the amazing fjord views.

    We both ordered the perfectly grilled salmon. Mui got the locally-bottled apple juice … I ordered a local beer. A great meal ... and even the weather cooperated. The rain held off long enough so as not to veil our view of the fjord. In fact, it wasn’t until we were back on the ship that the wet stuff resumed falling.

    Next Up: Copenhagen, Denmark ... 508 NM away ... but first, a day at sea.
