We are back from Norway
The Ullensvang Hotel at Lofthus, on the Hardanger Fjord
Stitching in the Garden Room
I am going to find it difficult to talk about our recent wonderful trip to the Hardanger area of Norway and our superb hotel without sounding as if I am showing off. Our original hotel had cancelled our booking so we were upgraded to the Ullensvang Hotel at Lofthus. Owned by the Utne family, this hotel simply hit all the targets. Beautiful bedrooms and superb views across the water. We had a free day near the end of the holiday and sat in the Garden room and stitched and stitched and stitched – simply Heaven!
I must thank all the people we met on our trip, who combined to make it an unforgettable experience. Our visits to Husfliden in Bergen, our day at the Folk Museum in Utne learning Hardanger embroidery and the scenery exceeded even my expectations. With the snow still melting, the waterfalls seen from our bus were breathtaking and when Malcolm (our long suffering coach driver) put Edvard Grieg on the bus CD player, I do not think there was a dry eye to be seen! Perfect…….
