Monday, June 1, 2015 - Bergen, Norway / Embark Sea Adventurer: A gray, rainy morning failed to dampen our spirits as we gathered for our tour of Norway’s attractive and historic second city.

Here, in the turf-roofed Troldsdal...

Red-faced parrotbills were quite tame near the pool, hopping in the lawn and eating grass seeds, showing off their emerald and scarlet plumage. After lunch, we set out in buses to...
