Have you ever tried smoked whale? Family travel is sometimes about trying new foods in exciting places and the colorful fish market in Bergen, Norway did not disappoint! We splurged on some scrumptious natural smoked salmon and tasted the whale, but decided a taste was more than enough for us.
Norway is the most expensive country in Europe, but it is possible to do on a small budget. It is a beautiful country and the fjords are spectacular, so well worth seeing. Bergen is one of the prettiest small cities in Europe and the fish market is a popular spot. This fellow was very friendly and we took our goodies and had a divine picnic nearby, charmed by the sailboats in the harbor and lovely architecture.
We'll be writing more about our travels in Norway from last summer, but thought this "taste" would suffice for those waiting. What is the oddest thing you have eaten while traveling? Whale and ox tail are near the top of our list.
