Visit of Norway's National Smart Grid Lab and the faculty day event allowed me to stay five days in Trondheim. Located about 300 km north of Gjøvik in Trondheim Fjord, it welcomed me with white nights and Lancaster-ish weather. Luckily, I had some opportunities to explore a few places. Most notably Norway's most famous cathedral - Nidarosdomen. 

September 2022 Update

I used train instead of a plane for my second trip. It was a less hectic travel with the same travel time (6h). Sure, my butt hurted a little bit more, but the views from the train were well worth the pain. I saw everything - from green fields, snowy mountains, scary troll passes, deep forests to several waterfalls and many tunnels.


Trondheim is students and tourists city and finding a place to get vegan food is super easy. I have tried very nice (but busy) Mat fra Hagen and convenient S'wich. Both my hotels (Comfort Hotel Trondheim and Scandic Solsiden) then offered many vegan breakfast options (plant milks and yogurts, baked beans and even vegan cheese).
