Norwegian Fjords Cruise – Alesund

On Thursday we arrived in Alesund at the entrance to the Geirangerfjord. It is known for its Art Nouveau architecture and fairytale like turrets can be seen on many of the buildings. 

Upon leaving the port we headed for the town centre. There were lots of high street style shops and restaurants to explore but as that was not what we had come for we circled back round towards the ship. 

We decided to go in the opposite direction and were pleased we did. We stumbled across the older part of the town with lovely views and nice bars and restaurants. 

The babies were napping so we found a bar that had seating outside. Once again it was a beautiful day. The bar was called Anno. It was situated on the waterfront and seemed popular. We ordered beer and a hot chocolate for me and enjoyed chatting and watching the world go by. As it was so nice we decided to stay on and have another drink. I had a wine this time and we also ordered pizza and olives to share, both of which were delicious. 

We then headed back to the ship to once again make the most of the glorious weather.
