    Trip to Bodo

    February 25 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ -8 °C

    Today we entered the polar circle, the destination was Bodo in Norway, where we will take the night ferry to the lofoten. A wonderful trip, blue skies and icy roads. Especially when we approached the Norwegian border, what a huge mountains. Dirk & Peter thanks for monitoring us from Germany much appreciated but we took a more safer route to Bodo.Read more

    Arriving at the Lofoten

    February 26 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 3 °C

    After a challenging seatrip where a number of people needed puke bags (heavy sea) we arrived early this morning at the lofoten. I travelled a lot but never saw such a massive island. Thousand words are not enough to give a proper descriptionRead more

    Landed in Narvik

    February 26 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 2 °C

    Today we experienced the Lofoten area, for me one thing is sure ‘I certainly will return’ one day is just to short to experience this beautiful area. My GoPro camera made overtime today. The road conditions were difficult mainly icy roads but all the credits to Rob for the excellent driving. Tomorrow we are going further North again.Read more

    From Narvik to Alta

    February 27 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 0 °C

    Today we drove from Narvik to Alta. The team challenge for today was changing copilot with another team, the best way to add new friends. I changed with team 36 , Irina, Chris and Lea who are driving an Unimog. Great ride, I love the dog Lea and enjoyed the conversation with Chris. Again a wonderful ride, with at the end of the day a visible aurora. Again a tick in the box of my bucket list. (Attached the best Aurora pictures made by the other team members)Read more

    One great full day in Oslo

    October 18, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Today was much better. The jiggling feeling after the train ride was gone and after a night’s sleep I found I could face a new city. We had spied a good breakfast place yesterday and had coffee and a yum pastry, then set off to achieve all the things we had planned. We took umbrellas as an insurance against rain, and were happy we did as when we set off it had obviously been raining during the night - wet pavements and puddles everywhere, but again we were lucky as it didn’t rain at all today - just grey skies, and even a break of blue by late afternoon.

    First of all we walked to the sculpture garden - a big attraction here, beautiful gardens, specially now with their autumn glory, and with many sculptures by a famous person whose name I can’t remember, who must have spent his whole life making so many works, or had a workshop of helpers...figures of men, women children in all forms and contortions, in granite...there is a lot of stone here! Anyway, that was fun. Many school children and tourist groups there too.

    Then we walked back and found the Nobel Peace museum which was good, and then on to the Resistance museum, which we found was within the fortress and castle complex which was interesting in itself. The Resistance museum we really enjoyed - not the right word really, but was interesting especially as it filled in what we had learned about during talks and visiting towns during the cruise up the coast where the towns felt the main brunt of the nazi occupation.

    After that we had a break and sandwich and then found that we were too late for the Viking museum -it was 3.40 and it closed at 4 in October, so we went on to look at the opera house again while the weather was good and before it started to get dark. It is such an amazing building, and I have tried to take photos, but it is difficult to capture. We then returned to the hotel - Amr had a short outing to look at some shops - but a little down time till we set off for dinner.

    We had planned to go to a Spanish place that had a sister restaurant we had noticed in Bergen, but when we went there - along a string of restaurants, rather like Barangaroo, alongside the harbour, with ferries, it was too busy, so we gave in and went to Olivia again...I just had salad, and we had a glass of wine. Didn’t feel like much after late lunch. So now back and ready to pack up and fly to Copenhagen tomorrow. Amr’s Apple Watch says that we walked 22 kms today, so that is good!

    I am bracing for another unknown city to explore, but everyone says how good Copenhagen is, so hope it won’t be too daunting! We have already found out where to go on the metro from the airport to get to our hotel so that is a good start! We spend 3 nights there, then start the journey home on Tuesday.

    Challenge of the day

    February 26 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 3 °C

    The challenge for today is to make picture with a least 10 Asian people, due to safety reasons we found 9 other foreigners who wanted to make a team picture with us. Just kidding, amazing how easy it is to make new friendsRead more

    First full day on Nordlys

    October 6, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C

    All tucked warmly into bed after a hot shower...We had a fabulous day. First of all, this boat trip is much more upmarket than I had imagined. It is a working ship delivering things and taking on cargo etc, but as passengers we have everything we could possibly want very comfortably. Food is delicious, and almost exclusively specialities of Norway. Just come back from a superb dinner...orderly tonight at proper times and tables, delicious fish, lamb and dessert...We all have a key card that is necessary all the time - key to cabin, used to disembark and embark, to go to meals, to buy wine or beer...so we have it round our necks tied in a shoelace (most people have it tied to them!). It all works very well.

    Today we went through the most beautiful scenery that I think I have ever seen....but I know there will be more to come. Quite early we docked at a very small town where quite a few people left the ship to go on excursions. Carole and John did and said it was wonderful - they were bussed, went on ferries and eventually ended up back at the ship where we next stopped. We didn’t do the day excursion, but had signed up for an art nouveau walk through a small town, Ålesund, which had been razed by a fire in 1904 and was rebuilt in art nouveau style. Interesting and beautiful. That was at the end of the day as the sun was setting. Photos will show how beautiful. Also the amazing picture postcard scenery of fjords and mountains. So spectacular and totally different from our also beautiful Australian countryside.

    I think we will enjoy these 12 days. Tomorrow morning we arrive at Trondheim and there are many excursions. We are going on a nature walk into the hills (mountains!) with the boat expedition guides, and C and J are going kayaking on the river through the city which looks spectacular. Sounds like a good day. We stop at Trondheim on the way back south when we will have a chance to walk through the city then. It already feels cold....have been wearing many layers, but hope I have enough to add when we reach the Arctic Circle!! What a life!
