Sunshine in Stavanger

Filed under: elsewhere, the joy of life — iamza @ 1:16 pm

Everytime I visit Stavanger, I’m surprised by how pretty and how clean it is. White woodframe houses, seemingly freshly painted; shiny black or red roof tiles that glint in the sunlight. The city centre nestles down by the harbour, surrounded by stony grey mountains.

Old Stavanger is charming with its narrow cobbled streets, black cast iron streetlamps, and tiny white cottages with pots of flowers.

This last week, Stavanger has been bathed in sunshine and blue skies. I went expecting to arrive in a second winter, and started wishing I’d packed some summer shorts instead!



  1. Looks very pretty! I often wish I lived by the ocean. Lately I’ve been longing for a nice vacation by the seaside. Instead I do the 30-minute drive to the ocean from time to time instead. Which isn’t the worst thing.

  2. Your 30-minute drive beats my 5-hour drive to the nearest beach, that’s for sure! :-)

    And I can think of lots worse places to vacation than Norway. Many of the major population centres are close to the sea (though I wouldn’t recommend swimming just yet. Heh).

    Eating out in Norway quickly gets expensive, but the food is divine!
