Mount Ulriken

As a student of Scandinavian languages and literature I came to Bergen in October this year to work on my final thesis about a contemporary Norwegian author. I had been granted a scholarship by the state of Norway, which allowed me to stay in Bergen for three month and do my research at the local university. Everybody who has been through writing his or her final thesis for university knows what a frightening project that can be. Have my studies really provided me with the scientific competence I need to write such a work? Is my topic good enough? Will I find the material I need? Will I have enough time?

I had been granted a scholarship by the state of Norway, which allowed me to stay in Bergen for three month and do my research at the local university.

Have my studies really provided me with the scientific competence I need to write such a work? Is my topic good enough? Will I find the material I need? Will I have enough time?

These thoughts in mind, I felt quite nervous and strained when I arrived in Bergen. I didn’t jump into the work at once though, but spent the first days together with my boyfriend (who was visiting me) discovering Bergen and its surroundings. One of the last days he was there, was a very bright and sunny day, so we decided to hike to the top of Mount Ulriken, which is the highest of the seven mountains surrounding Bergen and where you have a beautiful view over the city and the surrounding areas. We took with us two friends and had lunch on the top of the mountain. We even saw some paragliders, who must have had a fabulous time orbiting the mountain top with the city beneath them on that sunny day. On the top of that mountain I forgot all my concerns about the work I had to do and whenever I felt worried or sad the following weeks, when I was spending my days in the library, the memories and pictures of that day made me feel warm inside and kept me going.
