Was not happy at all when the bus driver pulled up outside and said "that's your hotel through that walkway" it's a bloody construction site. And the receptionist was the most unfriendly person ever. She barely told us our room number. All we got was "it's on the 5th floor"
Lovely view and hotel serves great breakfast.

It was my first time flying Norwegian Air. So impressed with the free wifi! Kept me entertained for the 3.5 hour flight! For the last 15 minutes or so, it became so bumpy. One of the worst turbulence areas I've been through. It was a tad scary!! 2015 country number 4 - Norway I was rather surprised that when ...
... and disembarked at Tromso.
Peter picked up a car and had some fun getting used to driving on the wrong side of the road. We went out at night to find the northern lights but didn't have much luck.
The next day we took a cable car up a mountain for some spectacular views of the town and countryside. It wasn't too cold ...
... decided to try one of the herring options- I went for curried herring- it was nice but I'm not sure I'm converted so probably won't be having it for breakfast again, we ate until we were almost bursting and then headed out on deck to enjoy the view. You could feel instantly that we had travelled further north- the cold took your breath away! We took some titanic inspired photos at the front of the boat and then dashed back into the warm and found a seat by the window to enjoy ...
