Vøringfossen II

Fossli Hotel ~ 5.25.15 ~ Eidfjord, Hordaland, Norway

Dinner is served from 7-9 p.m. at the Fossli Hotel and we were treated like royalty – my goodness everything was so fancy! I had reindeer for the first time in my life and it was delicious. And the distinctive cool water in that pitcher was straight from a nearby glacier.

The company was great, the view amazing, and the food delectable! The other family and we had the place to ourselves!

After dinner we went back outside, amazed that it was still light out. It was still quite cold up there in the mountains in May.

It was time for bed. It was still light out when we went to bed and already light out when we woke up the next morning. We could hear the waterfall lulling us to sleep. Sweet dreams…

  1. Awesome! I kept staring at the view outside the window you were dining by. Reindeer? Oh!
    Do you understand the norwegian language? I find it hard to even pronouns the words fjord and similar!
    What life! From your blogs, I think Norway is definitely a wonderful holiday destination. I love the painting on the wall. Would you like to go there again? 😉

  2. Yes, Sonali, I would drop everything and go to Norway again in a heartbeat – if only I could! And there is so much of it I haven’t seen yet. Sigh… Believe me, we could not pronounce most of the words we heard or the names of the places we visited. Fortunately for us, everyone we met spoke English. 🙂

    1. I’d say it tastes similar to the venison we get around here. Maybe even similar to bison. I’d make a terrible food critic – “love,” “like” or “don’t like” are the terms I usually use to describe food. 🙂 Loved the reindeer!
