    To the Nordcape

    February 29, 2020 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ -4 °C

    We left Honningsvag this morning for the final part North. Yesterday evening again an even better view on the amazing polar-lights. We arrived this morning at 08:00 @ the assembly point were we all come together. From here we are going in convoy mode to the Northcape following the snowplough. On the top we did the necessary photo shoots and celebrated with champagne our victory. We did it !!Read more

    Reaching our northernmost point

    October 10, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 4 °C

    A fairly quiet day today. After breakfast Amr went for his ritual sauna and walk round the deck. On deck 5 you can walk right round the ship - he says 5 laps is just over a km! It is always nice to get out there and watch if it’s not too cold or breezy! At 11.15 we docked at Honningsvåg which is where some people went on an excursion to the North Cape marker. We contented ourselves with a wander through the town which did not take long...we did go into the North Cape museum though which was interesting and well displayed. This place, like so much of the coast of Norway, was burnt to the ground by the Germans when retreating, so it also is rebuilt, and quite pretty and neat. Of course, it is basically just a fishing town. We are way above the tree line now, and the land we see is just rocky crags. Any trees in the town were planted, and probably have trouble thriving.

    Since leaving Honningsvåg we have been going out in the open sea and have to take care walking around, quite rocking! And I think this will continue as looking at the map we are out in the Norwegian Sea till we reach Kirkenes tomorrow morning. At the moment we have just pulled in to a fjord so it’s relatively calm, but we’ll be out in the open again soon, and continuing north till we reach our northernmost point before turning southeast to reach Kirkenes. There will be a few offload stops during the night, but for passengers that is the next port.

    Kirkenes is the end of the voyage for quite a few people who just do the northern journey, though quite a lot of people are, like us, continuing on the southward journey back to Bergen. So tomorrow there will be the bustle of people disembarking and others embarking.

    And today we did see rain for the first time!! There wasn’t much, and although it is quite cold, it wasn’t snow, so not that cold. By the time we walked around the town this morning it was quite bright, and though clouds are about there is also quite a lot of clear sky. I looked up the weather for tomorrow in Kirkenes and supposedly there will be snow overnight, but cloudy and little chance of precipitation in the daytime. That is so good as we have signed up for a walk to the Russian border! We do go part of the way in a bus, but then have a 4 km hike, which they have already warned will be wet underfoot. Glad I haven’t cleaned the mud off my shoes since the last muddy walk!

    Now sitting quietly - Amr got us prime position chairs at the front - which is good for now. There are many sitting places and chairs and it is usually easy to find a cosy place to sit and read etc. with a view looking out at the passing spectacular scenery. It is getting too cold to sit outside for too long, although there is one outside place that has heaters and is partially glassed in. There are 2 “public” decks where you can find places to relax - 4 and 7. The other decks are just cabins. 4 and 7 have bars, the dining room, lots of room for everyone, although I don’t think we are filled to capacity. Let’s hope for anther fine day tomorrow.

    Made it de Noordkaap

    June 13, 2019 in Norway ⋅ 🌫 4 °C

    De bestemming waar het allemaal om ging hebben we gehaald. Foto's volgen eerst een maaltijd, we kunnen pas om 01:00 op de foto met de Globe. Dat wordt het hoogte punt van de dag en van de missie dus mis het niet. Ik probeerde een timelaps te maken van de middernachtzon maar helaas werd het bewolkt.
    Het was ook even wachten, maar om 1 uur kon de we eindelijk richting de noordkaap om een paar mooie foto te maken. Wat een mooie ervaring om met je uit 1983 jaar oude minitje hier te staan. Nog lange reis te gaan met zijn tweetje en een oranje aanhangsel.

    Aurora Borealis

    February 28, 2020 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ -2 °C

    Am zweiten möglichen Tag, direkt am Nordkap haben wir sie endlich geballt gesehen 😍🐷 einfach ne geniale Sache wie plötzlich der Himmel heller wird und aber auch schnell wieder weg ist. Die eigentlich richtige Fahrt ans Nordkap ist heute, aber durch nen coolen Tip unseres Herbergenchefs, sind wir schon gestern abend raus ans Nordkap gefahren und konnten in Ruhe tolle Bilder schiessen. Heute um 9.00 Uhr gehts nochmals im Convoy mit 60 Teams raus, mal schauen wie das tagsüber so ausschaut.
    Wir sind aber sowas von happy, dass wirs gestern schon gemacht haben.
    Die Hälfte der Tour ist somit erledigt...
