There was nothing wrong with the receptionist or our welcome. The cabin was clean and roomy. It's a caravan park cabin - so what we expected. And a heater too! Breakfast was tasty and sumptuous!

It was quite amusing watching other passengers trying ...

We set off on our journey, winding through the streets with their colourful houses, before we came to a long tunnel; in fact it was about 5.7km long, so not ideal for anyone who was claustrophobic. The tunnel went right underneath the Atlantic Ocean and reached a depth of 250m, making it one of the deepest undersea tunnels in the world.
When we eventually ...
... one of those days. We were hanging out to set foot on dry land again and our next opportunity was supposed to be in Kristiansund for half an hour at 4.30pm. Unfortunately, we didn't dock until almost 4.50pm, by which stage there was no time to see anything. Instead, we stretched our legs with a walk around on deck. I was not looking forward to tonight's tea in the slightest. Nothing about the menu of meat soup, marinated pork with spicy coleslaw and a barley cream dessert appealed ...

Road, ferry and tunnel charges mounting, (based on the length of your vehicle), we elected to go back another way and found a beautiful free camp overlooking a fjord at Gaustad. The toll system here is "user pays" that seems fair, I guess, but mounts up ...
