Wow, Norway just keeps getting better. Balestrand is a fantastic little place amidst the fjords. I took a boat from Bergen and went along through Sognefjord, Norway's longest, deepest fjord. Along the way were stupendous waterfalls, massive walls of granite and picture perfect farms and houses. The photos are stunning, I just don't have the ability to load them on this computer - but it's free so I'm updating... I loved this place. I hiked up the mountain in town and took some video at the summit. I already decided I'll be back, expensive or not. I found that because Norway is so expensive, it forces you to diet and conserve money, and I actually spent less there than in Latvia!! So it is definitely doable. I have to come back because after Balestrand I took another ferry to Fjarland, which is home to a glacier museum and the access point for the largest glacier in Europe. I saw the blue ice of Brostlebreen
