  • Voss så godBjarte was such a good host. He even got up at 5AM and caught the train into Sentralstatjon with us to make sure we didn't get lost catching our train to Voss (well Myrdal actually, we got off before Voss). Everyone Posted by scoleman29 in NetherlandsandNorway | May 28, 2017
  • One perfect dayVolunteers - they are the heart and soul of any club, so should take Stolt og Kry (I'm hoping that Google translate is correct in saying this means "pride of place"). Those people who do all the l Posted by scoleman29 in NetherlandsandNorway | May 30, 2017
  • The start of something bigI'm excited! This is a blog about our big adventure to Europe. We thought about cramming in 20 countries in 4 weeks, but decided no, let's stick to those few where Helen has rellies - best decision we made. Traditionally I've taken Posted by scoleman29 in NetherlandsandNorway | May 10, 2017
  • The Last PostWednesday 15th This is just a note to notify that the facilities here (very small room, no chair at the desk) do not facilitate blogging, so this will be my final entry. Anyone interested in seeing further photos are welcome to Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 14, 2017
  • On top of the world "Let's walk in the shade". Never thought I'd utter those words in Tromsø of all places, but I did walking down the main street. But it got to 24 deg today, dead set heatwave. Thankfully Posted by scoleman29 in NetherlandsandNorway | Jun 14, 2017
  • In the Midnight Hour Who knew. In the artic circle the sun sets in the north. In reality the sun moves slowly sideways from west to reach its lowest poin Posted by scoleman29 in NetherlandsandNorway | Jun 5, 2017
  • Troll's RoadThe roads do not get wider, they just get windier, and the hairpin bends get tighter. Cloudy but fine, we set off again, first up Eagles Road. Then a ferry across the Fio Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 13, 2017
  • Over the hill to GeirangerOn the road again, climbing away from the coastal area, over the mountains and then back down to Geiranger. The countryside ranged from lush farmland, through forests, and across the top it was like the Yorkshire Moors, few trees, hard Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 13, 2017
  • Close CallOur final stop in Norway was to be in Stavanger (sta-vaahn-ger), and our expectations were tempered given its title as the "oil gateway for Norway" and the belief that nothing could approach our experience from the day prior in Flam. Posted by NellieVA in End-of-Summer Celebration in the Scandinavian Wild | Aug 27, 2014
  • Pampering and RestThis cruise was very port-intensive, and this is what we wanted. Unlike on a Caribbean cruise -- when I really enjoy days at sea -- the ship was really a means to an end, and with the cool temperatures, Posted by NellieVA in End-of-Summer Celebration in the Scandinavian Wild | Aug 24, 2014
  • A Small Taste of Things To ComeWith the time change, we were all awake quite early, but with the blackout curtains in place, no one was in a hurry to get up. Our first port of call was to the Kristiansand, on the southern coast Posted by NellieVA in End-of-Summer Celebration in the Scandinavian Wild | Aug 23, 2014
  • I Can See Clearly NowFrom the time we first booked this cruise, our stops in Geiranger and Hellesylt were "confusing," to say the least. The cruise line had little clear information, but our friend Rick Steves provided a definitive explanation in his Norway Posted by NellieVA in End-of-Summer Celebration in the Scandinavian Wild | Aug 25, 2014
  • Salzkammergut of the NorthWe continued across a high arctic plain, past impossibly deep lakes (including the deepest in Europe) and just below the lips of several glaciers. We stopped for lunch at a hillside lodge, from where we made an easy hike Posted by NellieVA in End-of-Summer Celebration in the Scandinavian Wild | Aug 25, 2014
  • OMG!Whereas we'd left our balcony curtains open the day before, for our arrival in Geiranger, the light had kept us up so we elected to close the back-out curtains before going to bed. I was awake early and didn't Posted by NellieVA in End-of-Summer Celebration in the Scandinavian Wild | Aug 26, 2014
  • OsloMuch like you, I vaguely remember studying the vikings at school: big, hairy (probably rugby-playing) lumps crashing across the North Sea in their horned helmets and longboats. Something crossed my mind as I polished off a bottle of beer by Oslo’s Posted by Peter.Moules in Doing things by halves: Europe | Jun 11, 2017
  • Winding down to TrondheimSunday Some cloud, but a very pleasant day. Heading south again, the countryside started to change. Still some forestry, some lakes, and m Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 11, 2017
  • Narvik to MosjoenEight o'clock start, and ended our journey at six o'clock - these long journeys are becoming a habit! It was a long road, with roadworks in some areas, and included a half hour ferry trip across Tysfjord. The roadworks included Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 11, 2017
  • Puppy Love After only getting to bed at 2AM after the midnight sun the night before, we were up at 8AM to embark upon our puppy training session in fine sunny weather at the V Posted by scoleman29 in NetherlandsandNorway | Jun 6, 2017
  • On the road againFriday We knew that Norway was expensive, but the cost of food here is mind boggling. Norway is one of the top countries financially, with the bulk of government income coming from their vast offshore oil reserves - so vast that Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 9, 2017
  • From Trondheim, up the very top and back down to BergenTrondheim Of course it was cold and windy when we disembarked at Trondheim, then as we walked along the cobblestones to the town it started raining! We headed first for Nidaros Cathedral and the medieval Bishop's palace next door. On the Posted by TandTtravel in Northern Europe 2017 | Jun 9, 2017
  • AltaThursday A free day today, so not much blog news. We caught up on a few chores, and wandered in Alta. The Cathedral of the Northern Lights in Alta is amazing, different from any other we have seen. The exterior is Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 8, 2017
  • Honningsvag to AltaWednesday. Another bright sunny day - at last summer has arrived in the north. We took time to walk around the city; yes, a city, although only 2 500 people, they became a city in 1996. It is on the island Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 8, 2017
  • Land of the midnight sunTuesday. This was a very, very long day. We set off from Ivalo heading north again, crossing from Finland into Norway, in glorious sunlight. The countryside changed once again, with very few trees, and those that did survive the conditions were Posted by Fleetconcepts in Europe 2017 | Jun 8, 2017
  • A hard Nights DayNight. Simple concept that the Norwegians haven't yet quite grasped. Us ragers stayed up till 1 AM (so it was officially Helen's birthday and way past Fat Cat's bedtime) as we didn't leave the Chance of Rain (THE most apt Posted by scoleman29 in NetherlandsandNorway | Jun 2, 2017
