I packed my bags again and around 1.30 a bus took us to Bergen's airport Flesland. A long wait there as KLM (Royal Dutch Airline) won't let you check your bags until two hours before the flight.

My great triumph, and it only took nearly two hours (last night & this morning) was to load an e-boarding card onto my phone!

Anyhow went by KLM to Amsterdam. Schipol is a fantastic airport. Great shops, eateries and whanot. But I didn't dawdle. Had a bit of a hike - and quickly through immigration - to get to the gate where the flight to London would leave. Both flights on time and fairly short. And I got an hour back and found the weather is very mild.
