Stavanger is a fantastic interesting blend of a small fishing town and a tourist destination. There are all the quaint homes with beautiful flowers on the door steps just blocks away from where the big cruise ships dock for day long expeditions. While going out on an expedition of our own, we were waiting for the ferry to take off when a new apartment building seemed to have risen up over-night. Looking twice at the cityscape, we realized it was not a new building, but a temporary one. A cruise ship. Taller than the surrounding homes, yet still somehow blending in as if it were nothing new or strange.
