Travelling has always involved a certain amount of waiting. And when you wait you don't want to stand around but sit down somewhere. In other words: Benches are needed. That is also the case at the Railway Station in Bergen, where I found this one.
Or only a small, unlucky traveller who just missed his train. Maybe he should have gone to the airport.
My own interest in benches stems from the site published by PERBS and Kerri and the site published by Malyss. Also, others have shown an interest in the subject, so I have started to take photos of benches when I "stumble" across one and post them on Fridays. This is not a "proper" meme, but if anyone else would like to join me in publishing benches on Fridays (or any other day for that matter), they are of course welcome to do so. I have therefore not made a blog roll, but visits to my former posts (see archives in the sidebar), to the previous mentioned sites and to Gerald's site Ackworth Born, Gone West (he keeps a small tab of benches he finds on his way) might be profitable.
