    Lovely hotel but in middle of construction

    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.

    ... hiked today was rated easy. Bob and I could definitely handle this hike, if we were not pressed by time. And we would need to get a walking stick to assist for the downward walk.

    Dinner was fish. The Norwegians sure know how to cook fish and I quite enjoyed it. It's after 9pm now and the sun is still high up there. Tomorrow will be our last day on this cruise. We have an excursion to do bird safari. Then I will be packing. Can't wait to go back and see ...

    ... had come in 4th on the British “X Factor” show. They both sang and played a variety of instruments. The music varied from traditional Scotch and Irish songs to classic pop to modern. We both enjoyed the show. We then went to see George Casey, an Irish comedian in the Explorer’s Lounge. We had seen him on the first cruise and he was funny. He told a few of the same jokes, but some new ones too.

    We were hoping ...

    ... the bus, freeze our butts off, get back on yet another bus. It took in totally 12 hours until we got to where we were staying but we still had to walk 1.5 kms to the house which was of course at the end of the street on the highest hill. So in the pouring rain, sludge, freeze temps and hurricane winds we hiked through the sleepy sea side town which reeked of fish. The town of Ballstad is known for it's dried fish. They have a short fishing season, when the fish come down ...

    Standing at the watersedge it was a magnificent sight, so quiet and calm where we could reflect on the wonderful experience we had both enjoyed so much.

    Tromso is the worlds northernmost university city. Lying 200 mikes inside the Arctic Circle, it is known as the Gateway to the Arctic because it was used as a starting point for hunters looking for Arctic foxes, ...
