    First full day on Nordlys

    October 6 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!

    Atlanterhavsveien

    June 21 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Untertitel „Ich bin wieder im Spiel“ 😊

    Da sah’s ich heute Morgen bei meinem Müsli, betrachtete den doch sehr grauen Himmel und überlegte, was ich denn heute mit dem Tag anfange. Da kommt John vorbei, grinst mich an und wedelt mit einem Haufen Geldscheinen. Dein Geld ist angekommen und drückt es mir in die Hand 😃💪.
    Es war schon ein wenig Risiko dabei. Ich habe einem wildfremden Menschen mal eben 600 € überwiesen, in der Hoffnung auf eine ehrliche und hilfsbereite Haut. Er war aber auch sehr bemüht und ich hatte ein ganz gutes Bauchgefühl. Hat super geklappt, nicht mal 48 Stunden und die Kohle lag vor mir. Um das Risiko klein zu halten, habe ich natürlich nur ein minimal Budget kalkuliert. Also keine großen Extras. Aber ich bin erstmal Happy und da stand einem Ausflug heute nichts mehr im Wege.
    Und da die Sonne nicht zu mir kommen wollte, musste ich Richtung Sonne. Das Wetter sah in Kristiansund und am Atlantic besser aus.
    War eine tolle Tour, immer mit Blick auf den Fjord bis über die Atlantic Ocean Road, mit kleinen Wanderungen dazwischen. Diese ca. acht Kilometer der Atlantic Ocean Road verlaufen über acht Brücken über mehrere kleine Insel. Die Brücken sind schon recht spektakulär. Es gibt einige Parkplätze und einen kleinen Wanderweg für Fotostopps.
    Das Wetter war zwar trocken und recht warm, am Himmel spielten sich aber regelrechte Wolkendramen ab und den ein oder anderen Regenbogen gab es heute auch zu sehen.
    Zurück auf dem Campingplatz, ich bleibe hier bis Montag, dann soll mein Pass kommen, ging hier ein ordentliches Unwetter nieder.
    Das habe ich mal gemütlich im Zelt ausgesessen, heute mit heißem Tee statt Wein. Und jetzt, „brennt“ der Himmel wieder wie gestern Nacht.

    J20 Nous en voulons encore !

    June 14 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Trève de plaisanteries.
    Plein soleil aujourd'hui, ce qui m'a permis de faire du side-car en Tshirt dans des conditions estivales.
    Nous avons parcouru 365 km, en suivant le programme d'Arnaud, qui était parfait. Nous avons exploré d'abord la route de l'Atlantique, très célèbre, près de Christiansund. Le paysage de petites îles est magnifique, complété par des ponts remarquables qui les relient. Arnaud a tout filmé, car les photos ne rendent pas la grandeur et la beauté du lieu. En hiver, lorsque les tempêtes se déchainent, les vagues de l'océan balaient tous ces ponts et les voitures qui sont dessus.
    Puis nous sommes allés parcourir la "route des Trolls", autre célébrité, située près de Andalsnes. Il s'agit d'une route en lacets très nombreux et très serrés, qui monte entre deux cascades. Magnifique. Nous la referons demain, toujours avec la caméra d'Arnaud.
    Nous ne sommes pas seuls, car motos et camping-cars apprécient aussi ces belles choses.
    Notre journée a été un nouvel enchantement devant tant de beauté.
    Encore !
    Voici une sélection de photos d'ambiance, non exhaustive.

    Geiranger Fjord und Alesund

    August 18 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Just a short hike up to one of the surrounding hills of the beautiful geiranger fjord you will be rewarded with a picturesque landscape.
    Alesund, a small town on an headland at the westcoast is nice to see from a bird's eye view.

    Ålesund

    March 6 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    Today the Nordnorge took us to visit the city of Ålesund - our first long stop on the Norwegian coast heading north. We left the rain behind in Bergen and we were blessed with a dry, cool day and an amazing sky. We climbed to the top of Mount Aksla (a steep but short one) to look far over the city and into the distance. A great cardio workout with amazing views as the reward. A quick stroll through the quiet city and it was back on board. We’ve had good sailing weather to date with some rolling around when the ship has been out in more open water but this is limited and easy enough to cope with.Read more

    First Glimpses

    March 6 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    A quick update - tonight at about 9.30pm we had our first Northern Lights showing! It was unexpected and so we were unprepared, rushing up on deck to view them and I forgot to take off my lens cap... after a few minutes of wondering what was going on, I worked it out. It was too dark to check all my settings on the new camera and so I missed capturing them. The forecast is looking good though and fingers crossed we will see them again. To the naked eye they are a grey blur that shifts across the sky. It was a great opportunity to observe the settings for more serious photographers and make a few notes for future reference. The photo here is one taken by Red (Sonia) using an iPhone app.Read more

    The Atlantic Road

    October 1 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    The sun makes himself shine behind one or another cloud. The turbulent ocean, the many little islands and the strong cold wind makes the Atlantic road with their beautiful bridges, an incredible experience.

    Drone flying on windy ocean condition...do not try it at home.

    Alesund - Land of the Trolls

    September 6, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

    Off the boat all day today on a tour which took in Borgundfjord, the valley of Validal, the powerful Gudbrandsjuvet Gorge and then down the 11 hairpin bends of ' Trolls Path - the Trollstigen mountain road. We also saw the waterfall at Stigrora and the Trolls Wall (3280 feet vertical mountain face) at Andalsnes.
    The weather could have been kinder at the start but the rain stopped and we had dry coach stops until the final one where the Wall was lost to low level cloud. Overall, a great day out.
    We were back on board for another delicious dinner and ended the day watching another show from the entertainment team who range from very good to room for improvement!

    Ålesund

    July 4 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We picked up a hire car at Ålusund airport and once again we were given a Toyota hybrid, this time a C-HR.
    We had a bit of a walk around Ålesund, had very good fish and chips at an outdoor place for dinner, then a glass of wine and dessert (very good chocolate cake with licorice ice-cream) at a nearby restaurant.Read more

    Bergsøya Island + underwater video

    July 22, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Today was another warm sunny day that showed the glorious Norwegian scenery at its best; rich green trees covering so much of the landcape, brightly coloured flowers at the roadside, including some magnificent displays of blue, pink and purple Lupins, blue skies, lakes and sea with silver sparkles of reflected sunshine- just gorgeous!

    Making a pitstop for lunch just before the little bridge to Valsøya island, Will took the chance to fish, then snorkle in the mini bay and the Straight. The water was clear and the sun lit the underwater world beautifully, the wavelets causing light to shimmer on the little fish and long strands of fawn coloured weed. There is a video of what he saw on VnW Travels' You Tube channel here: https://youtu.be/qgJyJ1fkMAA

    Driving on, we took to island hopping. From the mainland we crossed a bridge to Valsøya, swiftly followed by another bridge to a small island and back again to the mainland, through which we travelled for some time before boarding a ferry to cross from to town of Halsanaustan to Kanestraum. Despite it being a short sail, we had time to get out of the van and up on deck to enjoy the warm wind and sea views from this smooth and efficiently run ship. A few more bridges and we'd reached the island of Bergsøya where we found a large layby to spend the night. We are covering so much distance and visiting so many islands that we are getting to the ridiculous situation of not knowing whether we are on the mainland or an island without looking at a map!

    Our stopover looked out onto the sea, with a few small islands and a view of the mainland accross the water. Behind the van was the impressive Gjemnessundbrua bridge, leading back to another point on the mainland. Ahead was a tunnel which would take us under the sea to the island of Hansøya. Will was revelling in all this water and took his rod over the road to fish, coming back with a big smile on his face because he'd managed to catch our tea; a good looking Pollack big enough for the both of us to share!

    That night was the time we'd been able to watch the sun set for about a month!
