Journey of A Lifetime: Day 1 (28 July 2018) – arriving in Bergen

It has always been a pleasant experience to fly on Malaysia Airlines to London, and I look forward to fly on their new A350-WB. But they had used the bigger A380 instead because of high passenger demand in summer. I managed to get a descent amount of sleep during the flight. MH2 arrived in London Heathrow 30 minutes earlier than scheduled and provided me plenty of time to connect to my next flight. Because there’s no interlining between Malaysia Airline and SAS, I need to go through immigration, collected my checked luggage, transfer by tube from Terminal 4 to Terminal 2 and checked-in into the next flight. It can be stressful but Alhamdullilah it went smoothly. SAS was kind enough not to charge me with the access baggage. All the anxiety had gone and I still had 2 hours to spare before boarding, enough time for a cuppa and stretched my legs before the next leg of the journey.

In all it was 24 hours of flight time plus transfer and transit. The flight from Oslo to Bergen was a couple of hours delayed. By the time I arrived in Bergen, I can only think of a good bed to rest. Glad that I have booked a bunk bed in a dormitory at Marken Guesthouse instead of camping. From the Bergen Airport I took the bus to Bergen Busstasjon in the city centre. Then it’s about 10-minute walk to the hostel. What I didn’t expect was mostly they are cobbled streets. So dragging 2 bags on wheels were not as straight forward easy.

The staff at the hostel reception was very friendly and I was given the key to my shared dormitory on the 4th floor. The cost is NOK345 per night and it has free Wi-Fi,  For now, it’s time for me to get some rest. Do keep following and see you in my next post.
