Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share my simple birthday getaway and finally writing a post again.
We planned a last minute birthday trip to Flor og Fjære. Which is a garden on a small island just outside Stavanger. I thought it was the perfect time to finally visit this place. Hey, it’s my birthday and Thomas haven’t been there too so it was perfect — plus the weather did cooperate with us!
The ticket is inclusive of a 30min boat ride going to the island and back to town, guided tour, and a three course meal. I really loved the tour! It was a perfect sunny day to really stop and smell the roses! There were so many different types of flowers and trees. Both locally grown and imported from different parts of the world. What’s impressive is how they are able to maintain this beautiful garden despite the harsh weather here on the west coast of Norway.
The food was super yummy too. Though I don’t have much to say about it.😄 But the fish soup was my favorite! The restaurant is family friendly. Although we were not able to sit in the main restaurant because of our late booking. They were also sweet enough to present me with a birthday ice cream.
It was indeed a great day with the people I love and care for the most. The only blooper was that we almost did not make it on time because we got the wrong pier location. We parked on the opposite side of the pier. So we had to do a 2.5km marathon to catch it. I was literally the last person to board because my utterly short legs just could not keep up to Thomas’.😂 Luckily we made it!
That’s it for now! I’ll try to catch up with you the soonest.
