Trip to Norway - First Stop Bergen.

The first overseas visit for the Phoenix Bursary has seen me land in Bergen on the East coast of Norway. 

My travel companion for this one is Thomas Greenough; the Head of International Academic Development at the Glasgow School of Art. This is the first trip to Norway for the two of us and we cannot wait to see what it has to offer. With scheduled meeting with Bergen and Oslo Academy of  the arts it's going to be a busy 5 days. 

First job is to track down the Bergen based bursary holders Ella Calvert and Jenny Compton.

...........This will be the first of a series of Norway posts so keep checking in for updates and witty comments.
