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.

Apparently dining alone is the in thing these days, with a third of Brits living alone, but it was a bit awkward. I think food without people is kind of awkward and a bit lonely - food and company are very connected. I remember a friend who did a lot of fasting, and often for ...
Sunday - all shops closed so there is only one thing to do - walk! Well the day dawned overcast and cool!! - well at least until we took the cable car (Fjellheisen) and then walked to the top of Floya, 671m. We were amazed at the family groups climbing & walking. Children are the same the world over, the first thing they did was run for the areas of frozen snow to ...
Awoke to grey skies, rain and cold. Oh boy, what fun. Off the ship at 8:30 to catch the shuttle into town. A tunnel at least 10 k long with five roundabouts, thus roads leading off from the main. An engineering marvel, cut into rock. And Toronto is still talking about subways!! Anyway into Tromso which was buttoned up, closed. We wandered in the rain until an open coffee shop afforded ...
