Day 3

With just about 300 miles between Oslo and Bergen, seeing both cities in one trip is entirely doable. The scenic train ride between the two cities averages about a seven-hour trip. Two of the country’s largest airport are in Oslo (OSL) and Bergen (BGO). A flight between the two cities is about 50 minutes. Make your way to Bergen via your preferred method of transportation. The city is situated on the southwestern coast and surrounded by mountains and fjords. Take the Fløibanen funicular up Fløyen mountain, located close to the city center. With its coastal location, Bergen is a great destination for fresh seafood. Head to Bergen Fish Market where you can browse fresh fish, produce and other goods, and enjoy a meal at one of the market’s restaurants. The historic market has been open since the 1200s. Visit Old Bergen Museum. The open-air museum is a reconstructed town featuring about 50 wooden houses. Stay overnight at Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Bergen.

The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago Review

Though the Chicago area has been my home for decades, the view from the Water Tower Suite on the 26th floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago made me gasp. I had admired Chicago’s dramatic skyline many times, but never from this angle. Through expansive windows, the skyscrapers of 900 N. Michigan Ave. and the John Hancock Center, now named 875 North Michigan Avenue, rose to my right. Far below, the landmark Chicago Water Tower nestled in a ring of trees. One of the few survivors of the Great Chicago Fire, a turning point in the city’s history being remembered on its 150th anniversary in 2021, the Gothic Revival relic resembled a fairy-tale castle in a children’s playset.

Greece: Destination Culture

History and culture are etched into every corner of Greece. Beginning with its language, the oldest written language still in existence, and moving from the traces of passing civilizations and religions to pre-historic findings and works from many movements, there’s a wealth of culture to discover on your next trip to Greece.

Fever App Presents: Dining in the Dark Review

In April 2021, I was skimming Facebook when an ad for a blind-folded dining experience popped up on my newsfeed. The event was hosted through a company called Fever that offers fun, interactive events in major cities and virtually for people to enjoy. Intrigued, I clicked the link to learn more. The description made the event sound exciting and mysterious. When I give someone a present for their birthday, the holidays or a wedding, I like to give the gift of an experience that the recipient can learn something from. My boyfriend’s 30th birthday was in June, when the event was to be hosted, so I thought this would be a great surprise for him.
