... 2 other tourists waiting who happened to be going to the same hotel as us on the other side of the fjords- at least we knew we were going to the right place and so with no other option we waited for an hour in the dark and the snow for our ferry- right on time an hour later the ferry arrived and we ran on eager to get warm. Luckily the other couple had a phone and so called the hotel and they collected us the other side - it was around 9.30pm by the time we got there and were shown ...
