    After a fitful night when we were woken a couple of times in the early hours by Jette's phone informing us that we had reached Norwegian territory, breakfast was delivered to our room as ordered last night. Very civilised, this meant we did not have to scrabble with the masses before disembarking for a day in Bergen. Someone suggested that we would be about the youngest on board.

Upon hearing the entire sequence of events, the fact that we had arrived for check-in within the allocated time and had lost valuable time by them ferrying us from counter to counter getting the correct advice, the Service lady said-"just give me 5 minutes and let me sort this out". I quickly ran back to Darren, and told him to hold off on purchasing the new tickets.

    Soon after, we were called by ...

    ... we exited to the tunnel, we felt nice breeze drawn in the tunnel - we went "aaah, hold on just stand here" so lovely to cool us down. Then we walked to to the Bryggen area. Bryggen is famous for those buildings (warehouses). Let me explain a bit about Bryggen.

    ... after handful of ketchup packets, like starved kids digging into a basket of Halloween candy! And the napkins? It doesn't matter if we need only two, we'll still grab two stacks of them, each as thick as a fat phone book!

    With those kinds of genes, it wouldn't be possible for me to ignore my genetic imperative and avoid stealing food from the buffet! The only difference from my ancestors, however, is that being born in Canada, I suffer from a ...
