    A P.S from Monday

    October 7, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    Just have to add that it is now 10.15pm and all cosy in bed, but at dinner (again a delicious meal, 3 courses beautifully presented, no choices, one always featuring fish, and just the right amount!) they announced that the northern lights were again visible, so we went out and again you could see them, more dramatically than last time! It’s hard to see vibrant colour, more just light and a hint of green to the naked eye, but still pretty thrilling. I put on both jackets at once and found that this works well in the cold!! Aren’t we lucky....the weather has so far been so kind, and there are predictions for more of it tomorrow. Glad to see the lights before going to bed and having to drag on clothes over nightie to go up on deck at midnight to watch!!! We have just docked somewhere for 30 minutes to offload and load cargo, and we have about 3 short stops during the night - about 2,4 and 5 am...so you get used to the boat noises during the night. There was a small amount of boat rocking now we are in the open sea for a while, very mild - in the fjords it is so calm. Off to read and sleep.Read more

    Hurtigruten

    September 7, 2016 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Reise mit der MS Kong Harald von Trondheim nach Svolvær (Lofoten).
    Nach schaukeligem Start geht es nun hoffentlich etwas ruhiger weiter.

    Entlang der Küste auf der 17

    July 21, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Von Rørvik aus fahren wir nun weiter in Richtung Norden. Zuerst entlang kleinerer Strassen, bevor wir dann auf die Strasse 17 treffen. Diese endet in Bodø und das steuern wir über die nächsten Tage an.

    Im Gegensatz zur E6 (die andere Hauptverkehrsachse in den Norden) führt die 17 viel weniger Verkehr. Wahrscheinlich weil man mehrere Male die Fähre nehmen muss und auch sonst etwas langsamer vorwärts kommt. An der Szenerie kann es jedenfalls nicht liegen, die Strecke ist wunderbar! So oder so, wir sind dankbar darum denn die Strassen sind eher schmal.Read more
