    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.

    ... Hammerfest we saw the LNG plant on the island of Melkøya fed by the Snøhvit gas field. We weren't due into Hammerfest until 10:45 and docked about 20 minutes late. Hammerfest, the world’s northern-most town, where signs of settlements date back to the Stone Age, is still playing an important role as a fishing settlement.

    ... metres of seawater forces its way through a 3-kilometre long and 150-metre wide strait every six hours, with water speeds reaching 22 knots (41 km/h; 25 mph). Vortices known as whirlpools or maelstroms up to 10 metres in diameter and 5 metres in depth are formed when the current is at its strongest. The Saltstraumen has existed for about two to three thousand years. Before that, the area was different due to post-glacial rebound. The current is created when the tide tries to ...

    ... a big Christmas bauble. However, I am going to have to take a pause from stargazing shortly as the captain is going to give us a chat about the Norwegian bacalhau trade......... Well that was interesting! The Norwegians like their Stock Fish so much that they cannot wait to rehydrate it. They bash the whole dried fish with a hammer to tenderise it and then eat it like jerk- but it tastes like salty shredded tree bark. No wonder they have to wash it down with Aquavit ...

The guide had selected his preferred destination - a rocky beach at the Grotfjord. It took us an hour to drive the 40km here and we arrived at 7.30pm. A scramble down ...
