Bergen, Norway’s second biggest city is a designated City of Gastronomy and a member of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. Centuries earlier it became an important trading centre due to the presence of the Hanseatic League whose old settlement, Bryggen has been designated a UNESCO site. Today this incredible city has much to offer its visitors through its history and gastronomy.
Bergen, a UNESCO Gem
Extract From My Diary: A Neanderthal Experience in Gibraltar
While on a press trip in Gibraltar I had the opportunity to visit Gorham’s Cave and Vanguard Cave in an archaeological site known as the Gorham’s Cave Complex. Access to these caves was down a cliff face (steps provided) and then along a rock-strewn pebble beach in scramble mode. A thrilling and unique experience – especially for someone like me who has undergone bilateral total knee replacement.
