We have just been to Voss for one of my birthday presents. It was great fun.

On the first day we went to a big gorge which was giant but very hard to see. There were big holes in the rock ( “made by boulders” as my mum later told me) and the water was very strong. Once we had seen the view we took another path up the hill next to it. We spotted a few mushrooms on the way but we didn’t think they were edible. On the way down a horse rider passed us on a fabulous black horse.

Back at the hostel mum was making tea,Sas was reading,dad was talking to mum and I was exploring the grounds. I played some basket ball and skimmed some stones in the lake.After tea Sas and I lay in hammocks and almost fell asleep they were so comfy, then we realised we had better go to bed.

On the second day we packed for bad weather. The weather forecast said it was supposed to be rainy that day. We got in the car with the bikes safely on the roof (we were planning to do some cycling) and drove off.It was misty.

When we got to the valley where the train we were taking was we took the bikes off the car and pushed them on the train. Soon the train was leaving the station, full of Chinese or Japanese people (clearly it was a big tourist attraction). Higher up the mist was gone and it was amazingly sunny. Sas and mum got off with their bikes halfway up so as not to attempt the hardest bit at the top. A little while afterwards the train stopped so we could see a ferocious water fall,so strong that the spray coming off it was like rain.

At the top we cycled down,not going very fast because it was so steep. I didn’t have to pedal at all I just braked. We bought some goats cheese at a farm on the way.

We met Sas and Mum back at the train station and together drove all the way home back to Bergen.

    Esther and Saskia – I have just loved this ‘blog’? As Gpa and I looked at Saskia playing her cello with Ben and Esther with her Bronze Medal after that long race (where we went for a walk?) I found tears dripping off my chin – I was so moved!! We are both so proud of our Grand Daughters Love Gma
