    ... 1908 the previous Hurtigruten line was extended from Vadsø to Kirkenes. Around 1900 Kirkenes was just a small settlement with a church. For the 3500 inhabitants the main industries are fishing and service. More recently, jobs have been made available at the recommissioned iron ore mine. Our room wasn't available for checkin yet so we sat on level 8 at the front of the boat in the Horisont Lounge. Ate some food and got on the Internet while ...

    ... The theme for this year was "fairy tales" so some of the rooms had quite macabre sculptures on the walls. Our wrap up for the day was to get kitted up for some king crab hunting out on the frozen "long fjord". A sled ride on it's own would have been enough, but Robyn got to go "shotgun" behind the driver of the snow mobile....the best bit was the heated hand grips. Can ...

    ... hot chocolate in the cafeteria I took in two excellent exhibitions of Norwegian art, and a very good exhibition about life in occupied Norway during WWII. The local kindergarten meets at the museum and it was lovely to see mums and toddlers sensibly dressed to enjoy playing in the snow. Skis and walking poles are just normal accessories to your average Norwegian. Jason the bus driver who took me back to ...

    ... late so we don't get too much sleep. Maybe that's why we all doze in the chair during the day.
    We have done one excursion to the Geiranger Fjord. We left at 1.30pm and got back to the ship at 9.30. It was a long day. It is a beautiful fjord with very high cliffs. We drove down a road with big switchbacks in it that took 10 years to build. It was all a pretty spectacular day. The ship dropped us off and we met up with it again further up the ...

    ... reindeer and huge mountains 600 million years old.... We arrived at Oksfjord at 3.45 and left after just 10 minutes. Later we visited Skjervoy and we looked out at dinner time to see the loading & unloading operations. Internet coverage up here is very spasmodic and I feel the size of this tome might preclude successful transmission so I will close now and start another then despatch both from possibly Bergen where Internet is likely to be better. More soon Rob ...
