    Flam & Norway in a Nutshell

    September 7, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Having traversed 128 miles of the Sognefjord during the night, we docked in Flam on schedule.
    Although we had low cloud cover on arrival, the spectacular scenery which greeted us as we approached the dock and village ticked the boxes for doing this trip.
    For me, it was a double helping of chirpyness as I also found some free wi-fi to post updates from my tablet - although Mrs H had already brought our joint followers up to speed with her 'extra time' blog updates, so it wasn't a problem going 4 days into the trip without wi-fi ☺.
    Today was another full day off the boat, taking a train and bus tour called Norway in a Nutshell.
    We started aboard the Flam Scenic Railway for one of the most picturesque train rides in Norway - the tour description was right, it was breathtaking in places but difficult to capture on camera. The train did stop at Kjosfoss Waterfall so we did get some reasonable shots of that. Then we got off at Myrdal Station and changed trains to take us to Voss for lunch.
    After another local salmon fuelled lunch we got on a bus which took us back to Flam via a seven tier waterfall at Tvinde, the serpentine bends of Stalheimskleivane and a Viking village at Gudvangen in the Naeroyfjord.
    We were back on board for our 5:30pm departure and I'm writing this update on the balcony as we sail along the fjord heading back out to the Norwegian Sea on route to our final port of call at Bergen.
    I like sailing in the fjords - they're calm!,

    Flamm, Norway

    August 28, 2018 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    I'm off the ship but just for some wifi quickly before running back on to do some cleaning and paperwork. Flam has a mini cruise terminal where they offer wifi for crew and passengers. You don't have to walk through it to get out in port though so only crew know about it.
    Tomorrow was suppose to be my paperwork day because I was IPM but Jackson can get off with me tomorrow and the Spa manager offered to take my IPM for me. So I'll be heading to the office to get it done today.
    I also have cleaning to do because tomorrow is crew rounds and drills. The concession cabins (photographers, spa, casino and shops) have been failing a lot lately for crew rounds so our managers are suppose to come around and inspect the cabins tonight before crew rounds the next morning. Normally I would clean tonight after work but I can't this time.
