    Last port of call - Bergen

    September 8, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Another day off the boat as we explored the city of Bergen. We even had an hour of sunshine!!

    Our first stop was the Floibanen funicular railway which chugged it's way to the summit of Mt. Floyen for panoramic views of Bergen below. Whilst there we walked to and around Lake Skomakerdiket before giving our knees a real pounding with a ~3km serpentine walk back down to the town centre.
    Bergen itself is an eclectic mix of old and new, demure and brash with the working port seemingly the focal point. We looked around a few shops housed in old warehouse buildings and we walked past a busy fish market ( I assumed it smelt!), visited some gardens, the University and Johannes Kitken church area before getting back on board for Allison to attend a talk on circulation, and for me to have a quick snooze before we both joined the sail away party which kicked-off as we set sail for Southampton.
    Tonight it's out with the DJ and dickie-bow again for the second black tie event of the cruise followed by a visit to the theatre to listen to the entertainment team cover some Queen songs.

    Bergen - Hirtshals

    June 14, 2018 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    Heute geht es mit der Fähre Richtung Heimat. Bei strömenden Regen warten wir darauf das es los geht und wir auf die Fähre können. Dort erwartet uns eine schnuckelige Kabine mit Meerblick. Morgen werden wir 7:30 Uhr in Hirtshals sein.
    Der Regen und Wind nahm stetig zu ebenso das Schaukeln des Schiffes. In Stavanger dann die Durchsage - dass aufgrund des Hurrikan auf der Nordsee und haushohen Wellen das Schiff eine Zwangspause von mind. einer Stunde einlegen muss Danach sollte es ruhiger werden... wir möchten uns nicht vorstellen wie es vorher war, da es so immer noch der reine Horror war und die Fahrt und das wilde Schaukeln nicht enden wollten. Trotz seit Stunden an Land schaukelt immer noch alles.
