A travel blog entry by joebella44


So today was our only tour which we booked with Travelling Viking based on their good reviews. We were picked up at 9.30am and headed out on the road.

... other sea birds. Also, home to supposedly the most delicious waffles north of the 66 parallel, whatever that is supposed to mean.
