Molde Photo Diary

One thing to note about Norway – the weather is unpredictable and completely contrasting in each area. After a beautiful day in Bergen, we arrived the following morning in a wet, grey Molde. We had no activities booked, although I’m not sure you’d see much from the view point with all those clouds, so really all we wanted to do was get off the ship to stretch our legs. On our little wander we found a beautiful Cathedral and a just as lovely flower shop.

The town itself seems small and perhaps a little bland, so unless you had a tour booked, it was difficult to explore unlike in Bergen where you had the bus tour available. I wasn’t too bothered by the rain but being better planned for towns which are smaller than the main cities is a definite must as otherwise you end up wandering around aimlessly with a map you cannot read, just like we did! Maybe another time Molde.

    It’s a shame you didn’t enjoy Molde like you did with Bergen but that’s always the danger with small towns. Such a pity it rained on you too!

  • Aw it is a shame you didn’t get to explore it as much a would perhaps have liked to πŸ™

  • LaaLaa

    Ah I suppose this happens with small towns, not much to see or like you said unless there’s a tour going on you won’t see much x

  • Jodie Whitham

    Always fun to explore somewhere new. Norway is on my list now that a close friend lives there! Lovely pictures (despite the weather)

  • Hungry_Healthy_Happy

    I would love to visit Norway and its high on our list for next year. Loved exploring it a little through your photos.

  • Beautyqueenuk

    It is such a shame about the weather, but it looks as though you had fun regardless and you have some amazing photos x

    Awe I think rain does take the shine off a trip. I know someone who went to Barcelona and they hated it, but it rained the whole time.

  • Nayna Kanabar

    Its a shame that the weather was not great , I hope you still managed to enjoy your break.

  • Some great tips here – I’d love to visit Norway one day!

  • I have only been to Oslo in Norway but would love to take a cruise that includes other cities in Norway plus the weather is like the UK so will be right at home lol

  • The rain does have a habit of dampening spirits…it’s chucking it down here today. However it sounds like you made the best of the visit. We’d book a tour as we’d be walking around aimlessly too!!

  • Shame about the weather but I’m glad you still had a great time!
    I want to go to Norway one day

  • I too noticed it rained a lot in Norway! They said this year was the wettest year since 1939 or something like that.

  • Shame about the weather, looking fab in the raincoats though!

  • Natasha Mairs

    Your photos are really great, shame about the weather, would have made the day better

  • Shame about the weather but Norway still looks lovely! x

  • I’ve never been to Norway. It looks so beautiful yet a bit cold πŸ˜‰

  • Melanie Edjourian

    It’s a shame the weather wasn’t that great but it still looks like you had a great time.

  • I really want to go to Norway and Denmark. It looks great!

  • Jenny Eaves

    I love Scandinavian countries, they are always so lovely and friendly! A shame it was raining the entire time and no organised tours though. πŸ™‚ x

  • mummyslittlemonkey

    Ah, what a shame about the weather!! However, I’m not going to feel TOO sorry for you, since all the other parts of your Norwegian adventure look freaking amazing!!! πŸ˜‰ xx
