I came to Stavanger, Norway to hike to Pulpit Rock which has an outstanding view of the Fjord. When I arrived in Stavanger at 10 pm last night it was raining very hard so I was a little concerned about my trip today. However, the forecast looked promising. I walked to catch the ferry and then caught a bus to the hiking point. It is a pretty steep hike which takes 1.5-2 hours. Paid the price for sitting on my butt for past 5 months. Lol I was not anticipating the snow but it was a pleasant surprise. The grey clouds lifted on the hike and we had partly sunny skies. The view from Pulpit Rock was amazing. Many ventured to sit on the ledge but I decided NO !!!! Stayed there about an hour and hiked down to catch the returning shuttle. Rained on our journey back to the ferry. Good timing. Catching a 35 minute plane (cheapest way) to Bergen today and 1 hour train to Voss. Tomorrow is Norway in a Nutshell, did this before in 2007 but have to do it again.

- After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.
