  • Norway and the Northern LightsSo far the voyage has been everything I had hoped for and more. The ship is about one-half full, and sailing with only about 350 people is wonderful. We had a nice buffet dinner last night and tonight Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Jan 19, 2015

  • ReflectionsOur epic Nordic trip is over. I have frequently had moments where I can't believe where we are, that what we're seeing is really there live. It's like it's straight out of a movie or book (which is bent really, Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 9, 2015
  • The frost is over! (exclaimed in Edmund's voice)We packed up and had our last breakfast at Scandic where I ate way too much. This buffet and the one at Shangri La Rasa Ria in Borneo are the best! We arrived back in Oslo around 1pm and caught Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 8, 2015
  • Husky sledding in the wildernessAfter another scrumptious breakfast, we went to get a massage (yay!).

  • Playing speed chicken on a frozen lakeIt hadn't been the best night's sleep, what with the dogs periodic howl chorus, ting of the stove as burning wood readjusted, the guide Carmen coming in every four hours to add wood, Cal snoring and it being very cold. Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 7, 2015
  • The most beautiful thing I have ever seenWe slept in today (yay!) and had a delicious breakfast again (love Scandic breakfast!).

  • Art in Oslo - Some a Little DisturbingI did a fair amount of reading up on the sights to be seen in Oslo, apart from those which I would encounter as I just walked around more or less aimlessly. Two things stood out as being something I'd Posted by NZBarry in Barry Travels the World | Jan 2, 2015
  • Into the darknessGodt Nyttår! We started the new year like most, very tired. After quietly packing we caught the train to the airport to fly to Tromsø, self described "capital of the arctic" located 400kms above the arctic circle. This means the Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Jan 2, 2015
  • The dumbest thing I ever instantly agreed toSo just before we got on the plane to Norway, Ben had messaged us asking if we'd be interested in jumping in a fjord. Hell yeah!

  • Let's get børstToday Ben, Cal and I headed to Holmenkollen, a ski jump, ski museum and popular lookout. The ski jump is huge (how the cheese do people do it?) and there's big steep steps up the stadium that apparently people run Posted by EricaJY in Welcome to Narnia | Dec 31, 2014

  • Days 112-113: Flam, NorwayFlam, Norway 23-24 I took this train that went through the mountains and all these lakes and forests and waterfalls and tunnels. It was pretty cool.

  • Days 107-111: Oslo, NorwayI actually didn't hitch to this spot, cuz I'd heard from other people taking days to get here from Stockholm. Unfortunately, I have only 2 weeks in Sweden and Norway. So I'll be taking trains. I stayed Posted by ErnieLG in Destination Unknown | Dec 29, 2014
