The Season

Culture, Journal, Photography

They’re here again to invade our pavements, restaurants and city. No they’re not on war. We are not on war with them. They walk in pairs, groups or solo. Cameras, especially the system ones are a common sight with them. Do not forget the maps and the translation devices too. Some of them know where they are heading and some get lost. Everything that we find mundane in this city, they find it exciting and interesting. Because of their curiosity about history, they fill up the museums, churches and souvenir shops.

Some locals would probably find this season annoying. Perhaps because of the amount of tourists that storm in to Bergen. In terms of the areal size, Bergen is not a big city compared to NY, London, Barcelona and etc. So a cruiseship or two will somewhow make the city center look overpopulated.

If you would ask me how I feel about it, I think it’s great that they want to explore Bergen/Norway. Tourism is also good for the economy. My only concern regarding the cruiseship industry is the pollution that comes from it. I hope that they’ll fix that too.
